Small step forward

April 18, 2007

This has been a big week for politics, today the Supreme Court upheld the Partial Birth Abortion Ban Act. If you read the actual document you have to wonder why this was ever considered an option by anyone. No matter how pro-choice you are there is nothing more despicable than the way this procedure is preformed. It makes me wonder how future societies will view us. If you have ever read “A Modest Proposal” by Johnathan Swift, to me this rings of the same absurdity. The only difference is that this was a satire and unfortunately we have actually commited these murders.

I understand that there are always going to be gray areas when it comes to this issue. What to we do to a ten yr. old girl who gets pregnant by rape or incest? I think only God really knows what the right answer is in this situation. But can’t we at least be humane in these instances? Do we really think that this could somehow endanger womens’ rights to ban this kind of thing. I just don’t see the connection. If for some reason you do make it to the 2nd or 3rd trimester of your pregnancy and just decide you don’t want the child, isn’t there a better way than this. I mean really what’s the opposite of life, I don’t think the word “choice” would be the first to come to anyone’s mind.
