Late-Term Abortion vs. Partial Birth Murder
Alito Scares the BeJesus Out Of Abortionists
"The Supreme Court's decision to hear this case is a dangerous act of hostility aimed squarely at women's health and safety," whined Cecile Richards, President of Planned Parenthood Federation of America, an Abortion-Rights group. "Today's actions by the court are a shining example of why elections matter. When judges far outside the mainstream are nominated and confirmed to public office by anti-choice politicians, women's health and safety are put in danger."
Here is the accepted medical rule of thumb on life, or in this case "viability," of a fetus: After six months of a pregnancy, a fetus is usually deemed by doctors as "viable" and therefore fully capable of living outside its mother's womb.
Now there are some of you who have read Timmer's Rant on Abortion, in which I do NOT support all facets of the Right to Life crowd, and perhaps you are perplexed by the strong language used here. Easy. This late term abortion, to my mind, is basically cold-blooded and needless murder. If a Mother is carrying her Baby into the last trimester, and especially if up to the delivery itself, should she not be legally bound to at least give this PERSON a shot at life - even if that would be through adoption or foster care? Besides a life-threatening situation for the Mother (which is very rarely the case in Late Term Abortions), what could possibly be the rationalization for jamming a poison-filled needle into a little baby as he/she is about to enter the world?
All of the Tookie Williams' of the world should face death, and the public's scorn, before any of these innocents are snuffed out before they can live long enough to cry out in protest. Let's hope that our new Supreme Court Justices feel that way, too.
