Court Upholds VA Partial-Birth Abortion Ban


In his concurring opinion, Circuit Judge J. Harvie Wilkinson wrote, “The fact is that we - civilized people - are retreating to the haven of our Constitution to justify dismembering a partly born child and crushing its skull. Surely centuries hence, people will look back on this gruesome practice done in the name of fundamental law by a society of high achievement. And they will shudder.”

Prophetic words.

This is an interesting decision, in light of Barack Obama's promise to push for more guarantees on abortion.

Who is going to step forward and say that stabbing a baby's head and sucking his brains out is a humane thing to do?

We wouldn't do it to born babies. Why should we do it to half-born babies?
