On abortion in America

The current issue of The Weekly Standard has a powerful commentary on abortion. Reading it made my blood run cold.

I am convinced that medical personnel—the doctors and nurses—that persist in doing abortions posses a seriously degraded humanity.

But, I hold the highest condemnation for those that push it, those that coerce hapless women to undergo it, but maintain their distance from it out on the sidewalk with their pro-choice signs or in the administrative offices.

I am of the belief that anyone that holds Roe v. Wade to be settled law ought to be compelled personally to witness an abortion; especially a late-term abortion. That goes for Supreme Court justices, politicians and right-to-choose-ers.

Postscript: The Weekly Standard article is entitled Mugged By Ultrasound.

I agree that they should be FORCED to watch an abortion. A person cannot say that they are personally against it, but they won't stop someone else from doing it.

I am personally against murder! That means no one should do it. Period. Abortion used to be a crime except under special circumstances. We now have the proof that these are babies, children, human beings.

Not that we needed the proof...the Latin word 'fetus' translated means 'baby'.
