Many libs and feminists are mad that the ban on partial-birth abortions has been upheld as constitutional. Some subscribe to the theory that upholding this ban injects "rigid Catholicism" into the Constitution. Of course, that's pretty typical...if you take a moral stand against something, liberals turn it into a religious stand. There is a difference between having a moral base and a religious base.
This atrocious procedure is supported by people who believe that torturing terrorists for interrogation purposes is inhumane, but killing a partially-born infant is not. Even Democratic politicians have considered the procedure to be "close to infanticide"...but still support it as a political position.
Abortion is really not a "hot button" issue for me, although it is an issue for other conservatives. However, I believe that there is a place where a line has to be drawn, a place where the practices of abortion go to far. Partial-birth abortion is part of that line.
A woman has a right to choose...but I personally believe that there are so many options out there, abortion should be the exception and not the rule. There are other options, like giving the baby up for adoption, morning-after pills, giving the baby up for adoption, early-term abortions, giving the baby up for adoption...you see what I'm getting at?
Did I mention that they could give the baby up for adoption?
Of course, that would mean a complete overhaul of social services, but that's a subject all it's own...
Click here to see a video about celebrating a life that a partial-birth abortion would've taken away. This clip hits close-to-home with me, especially because I have a toddler at home, and he is the greatest thing I've ever done with my life.
h/t to Mason Conservative for the clip.
