O.k., I'm late on this story but I do have a few things to say. First, late term abortions should be the last resort but I do not think they should be illegal.
I am not too surprised that this right leaning court has made this decision but I am surprised that they made no exception for the life of the mother!! THAT is the real story here. THAT is amazingly barbaric, dangerous and irresponsible. And sadly all of this is lost on America as this story was pushed into the ICU unit of new stories by this over-done Virginia Tech massacre coverage.
So basically what the court is saying (and those who support this kind of radical action) is that it's better for the mother to die so that a child can live without a mother then save the woman so that she has another change at pregnancy later!! A second chance where she has a better shot at having a baby without risking her life (and her babies)!!! And what if both the mother and child die?? It's better that two lives die then to save one of the two?? That is utter insane, irrational, illogical thought!! This black and white, absolute thinking and acting has got to stop!!!!
These anti-choice people love the fetus but hate the child. As soon as they are born they do not want to have to help pay for their insurance and other medical care should they be born with AIDS or a meth/crack addiction. Many do not want to pay more to increase the quality of schooling they should receive and on and on.
And in this ruling they are obviously saying the child is more important then the mother. What if the mother had two other children? This means that they are saying it's better for these two other children to lose their mother then to save the mother for the benefit of the greater family.
This is such arcane thinking!!
