Supremes take on PBAs
Comming soon to a Supreme Court near you, The Case against Partial Birth Abortions. Just another rung on the ladder towards bannign all abortions.
Go ahead and read the predictions in the article, put a pillow under the general area where your chin is to cushion its drop when you read this:
In the government's appeal, Clement noted the 2000 decision, Stenberg v. Carhart, but said Congress determined that type of late-term abortion is not needed to preserve a woman's health.
The case comes to the Supreme Court from Nebraska, where the federal law was challenged on behalf of physicians. Doctors who perform the procedure contend it is the safest method of abortion when the mother's health is threatened by heart disease, high blood pressure or cancer.
As many of you may or may not know. This is the crux of the abortion issue. It baffles me, to no end how Conservatives can boast about how they don't want government intruding on their lives, or in business, or in health care (when it comes to Medicare). Yet when it comes to abortion, intrude away ye all-knowing power mongers in Warshington.
I specifically remember Bush saying this type of stuff during the campaign:
Bush's attack in the debate echoed a grossly misleading claim made in his earlier TV ad, which said Kerry's health plan would put "Washington bureaucrats in control" of medical decisions.
Vasectomies don't seem to have any health benefits but you don't see Congress trying to ban those! And we all know how many babies a year could have been born if all those goddamned men stopped having vasectomies.
So let me get this straight? It's OK for Washington Bureaucrats to be in control of a woman's medical decision but not everybody else's?
John Lennon was right, Woman is the nigger of the world.
