I Wish….

That someone who isn’t bogged down in assorted feces and trying to get a number of old pets and children adapt to new pets would go into detail about this.

Whatever the details, it sounds frightening to me.

War on Women

March is supposed to be Women’s History Month. You wouldn’t know that in the US Senate, which seems determined to do women harm. The Washington Post reports that senators rejected a proposal that would have expanded government health care for low-income pregnant women and would have forced private health-insurance companies to make contraceptives more widely available. Tuesday’s 49-47 vote — it was 11 short of the 60 needed — came during debate on legislation to ban a procedure that critics call partial-birth abortion. The same vote also turned back a proposal to make emergency contraceptives (the morning-after pill) available in hospital emergency rooms for victims of sexual assault.

While we’re busy trying to impeach the Shrub, we should seriously think about throwing some of the bastards on Capitol Hill out on their keisters.

Perhaps it is simply my age showing, but I find this totally medieval.

    “In a partial-birth abortion, the abortionist pulls a living baby feet-first out of the womb and into the birth canal (vagina), except for the head, which the abortionist purposely keeps lodged just inside the cervix (the opening to the womb). The abortionist punctures the base of the baby’s skull with a surgical instrument, such as a long surgical scissors or a pointed hollow metal tube called a trochar. He then inserts a catheter (tube) into the wound, and removes the baby’s brain with a powerful suction machine. This causes the skull to collapse, after which the abortionist completes the delivery of the now-dead baby.”

    As described above (source: http://www.nrlc.org/abortion/pba/keyfactsPBA.htm), it sounds real scary to me. But of course this comes from a pro life site. They even have drawings illustrating the procedure (http://www.nrlc.org/abortion/pba/PBA_Images/PBA_Images_Heathers_Place.htm).

    As far as abortion is concerned, I’m pro choise though. But I can’t imagine in what cases the decision to have an abortion would have to be taken after about 24 weeks. I’m talking e.g. about a pregnancy caused by rape.

    The only cases I can think of right now, are those where either the life of the mother is at stake, or the child having some serious health deficits.

    Ps. and the baby should have to be in a lot of pain. Otherwise: why not let nature have its way and let the baby die, either ‘on the way’ or after birth.
