what do you think? personally i think abortion in general is wrong, but do you think we should ban partial birth abortion?
Partial birth abortion is one of the most disgusting procedures ever invented. For those that don’t know. The cervix is dialated, and the Dr extracts the baby feet first until only the head remains inside the mother. This is important because otherwise the baby would take a breath and start screaming. At which point it really looks like the murder that it is, so that awfulness is avoid.
Anyway, with the babies head still in the mother. The “Doctor” (yeah right!) inserts a long pointy object (scissors) into the babies neck and jabs up into the brain many times until the baby dies. At that point the corpse’s head is removed from the mother, and the dead baby is thrown away in the medical trash heap.
Ain’t that lovely to think about? Yes there is a rare condition of fetal deformity (I forget the latin name) where the baby’s brain fails to form, and the head grows to an abnormally large size. In this case, I agree that the pregnacy should be terminated because the mother’s life is truly in danger. However, partial birth abortions occur at an alarming rate. Much higher than the occurance of this one condition. Regardless, isn’t there a more respectiful way such deformed children could be euthanized?
