It never ceases to amaze me that leftists can endure the cognitive dissonance of condemning waterboarding as too cruel, while demanding access to dismemberment as a right. But maybe this is one reason they seem to be such lunatics. Their brains are broken.
A former abortionist explains the dismemberment abortion procedure.
In June, Texas banned this gruesome and inhumane procedure. Abortionists have challenged the ban, which has now gone to trial in the District Court for the Western District of Texas.
Texas is vigorously defending its ban, pointing out that several abortion procedures which do not dismember the unborn child while still alive are still legal including fetal injection of intracardiac potassium chloride, transabdominal injection of digoxin, and cutting of the umbilical cord.
Similar bans have remained unchallenged in Mississippi and West Virginia, been temporarily or permanently stopped by court order in Arkansas, Kansas, Louisiana, and Oklahoma, and been overturned as unconstitutional in Alabama. The Kansas Supreme Court is expected to hand down a final decision sometime soon on its challenged ban.
Laws like this that get conflicting district court decisions usually end up being tried by the Supreme Court.
Is ending the life of a human fetus moral?
A recent Marist poll has shown that an overwhelming majority Americans are in favor of restricting abortion to the first trimester or to cases of rape, incest, and life of the mother.
Given that a ban on D&E does not eliminate the possibility of a second trimester abortion, one must wonder why abortion providers like Planned Parenthood are fighting in court for the right to continue tearing live fetuses to death.
