    I was actually happy to see it. But unfortunately we cant ban abortion all together but since the judges are rather stubborn into reading a right that doesnt exist in the constitution only an ammendment will change that and while i think a majority support the pro life movement, there arent enough for an ammendment. You would think that in a society as advanced as ours we would have overcome something as barbaric as infanticide by now. I mean its one of the few things worse then slavery thats existed in the United States.

    This is a gigantic step towards prosecuting those who would harm the unborn. I do not believe that it will be the death knell for abortion as that's voluntary rather than involuntary.

    And, yes, I meant the pun.

    ...Human life does not "begin" at conception. From a purely practical standpoint, it doesn't really begin until the fetus is viable outside the womb.

    Until the blastocyst (an undifferentiated mass of cells) implants itself in the uterine wall, it isn't even considered a fetus. And until well into the first trimester, it doesn't even resemble anything human.

    The so called "right-to-life" movement confuses the potential with the actual. The life that already exists (the mother) trumps the potential life (the blastocyst or the fetus).

    And, face it, the "right-to-life" movement isn't about life, it's about power...political power...the power to dictate how a woman will lead her life. Is she an entity with free-will? Or merely chattel, to do as she's told. That view coincides nicely with the Taliban and Wahabi view of the world...doncha think? Just goes to show ya...religious extremists are all dangerous loonies, doesn't matter what religious flavor they like.

    Life exists if cells divide.

    Sorry to burst YOUR bubble, but read the new legislation. Must suck to always be on the losing end.
