The Constitutional Right to Kill

Today, a US District judge in San Francisco ruled the "partial birth" abortion ban, signed into law in November, unconstitutional.

According to Newsday, Judge Phyllis Hamilton "agreed with abortion rights activists that a woman's right to choose is paramount, and that it is therefore "irrelevant" whether a fetus suffers pain (emphasis mine), as abortion foes contend."

To get an understanding of the partial birth abortion procedure, look here.

In my view, we are watching entitlement in its purest and most sinister form, when a woman's right to choose is of greater value than an innocent life.

We are not talking about a fetus of a few weeks. Partial birth abortions occur, in the vast majority, during a period when the fetus can survive if fully delivered. This means that when it is pulled from the womb, into the birth canal, and it's brain is removed with a suction catheter until the head collapses, the fetus is literally one breath away from being someone's child.

You explain to me how that is ok.

Its really hard to justify this procedure except in the most extreme of circumstances. It makes me shudder to think about it.
