(Huffington Post) — Two abortion clinics on Thursday join the growing list of Texas providers shutting down because of restrictions passed by the state legislature last summer, the clinics’ owner said.
Whole Women’s Health, which operates five abortion clinics and one ambulatory surgical center in Texas, will close its rural clinics in Beaumont and McAllen, Amy Hagstrom Miller, CEO of Whole Women’s Health, told HuffPost. The McAllen clinic was the last center serving women in the Rio Grande Valley, and the Beaumont clinic was the only abortion provider between Houston and Louisiana.
In a small town, it’s “next to impossible” to comply with the new law, which requires that abortion providers have admitting privileges at a local hospital, and that all abortions take place in ambulatory surgical centers, Miller said in an interview.
“The majority of the rural providers in Texas are now closed,” Miller said. “I’m stubborn or stupid to have kept mine open this long, but I can’t keep my doors open when I can’t see any patients.”
The anti-abortion law signed by Gov. Rick Perry (R) last summer, known as HB 2, also bans abortions after 20 weeks of pregnancy and restricts how doctors can administer abortions with medication. Republican supporters of the bill said it was intended to protect women’s health.
The number of Texas abortion clinics has dropped by more than half since the state legislature began passing new restrictions on pregnancy termination in 2011. There were 44 clinics in 2011. With the closing of Miller’s two clinics, there are now 20. Only six of the remaining facilities are ambulatory surgical centers, which means that the remaining 14 will soon have to close unless they can comply with the new building requirements by the September 2014 deadline.
It would be immensely satisfying to watch Abbott crush Davis.
Via Texas Tribune:
After what are shaping up to be easy primary wins in March for the leading gubernatorial candidates, Republican Greg Abbott starts the general election race for governor with an 11-point lead over Democrat Wendy Davis, according to the latest University of Texas/Texas Tribune Poll.
Meanwhile, several statewide races on the Republican primary ballot – for lieutenant governor, attorney general and comptroller – appear headed for May runoffs. None of the leaders in those races looks close to the 50 percent support they would need to win next month’s primary outright.
In the governor’s race, Abbott would beat Davis 47 percent to 36 percent in a general election held today, with 17 percent of registered voters saying they have not made up their minds about which candidate to support, according to the poll.
“We’ve been talking since the beginning of this race about whether anything would be different, and we’re not seeing anything that’s different,” said Jim Henson, co-director of the poll and head of the Texas Politics Project at the University of Texas at Austin. “There was some talk about how Davis had done better in our last poll, and that was partially an artifact of her rise in the fall, and we’re seeing something of a reassertion of the normal pattern.”
In the October survey, Davis’ announcement and sudden political celebrity cut the Republican’s lead over her to 6 percentage points. Now, the distance between the two has widened a bit.
The Los Angeles Times and Belgium see eye to eye. In an editorial on Valentine’s Day, Times editorial writer Scott Martelle wrote“Extend assisted suicide to children? Belgium says yes; so should we.”
“The Times’ editorial board has gone on record supporting the right of terminally ill patients to end their lives on their own terms, and I hope state lawmakers — or voters — eventually agree,” Martelle wrote. So why not Euthanasia for Kiddies?
It is a distressing concept, and the idea of helping a child die sounds incredibly cold and morally and ethically unsound — until you dive into the issue. While it raises painful and conflicting emotions, and choices, the Belgians — who have pushed assisted suicide to the edge before — are on the right, groundbreaking track.
Groundbreaking? Yes, it is, but not in a positive way, not at all.
And that right should extend to children, in tightly controlled circumstances and with legal protections. I suggest a system, much like the Belgians approved, in which the child (first and foremost), the child’s parents or guardians, the attending physician and a court-appointed lawyer, medical doctor or psychologist acting as the child’s agent all agree that assisting the death is the humane thing to do.
It’s not an easy conclusion to reach. But if we believe that it is humane to give terminally ill adults the right to end their lives with medical help, how can we not extend that ability to terminally ill minors? Because of their age, they should be forced to suffer more than an adult?
…for a child facing death in the short term, and in agony, we as a society should enable the child’s right to die with the least amount of suffering — under the protocol (or a variation) suggested above.
Yes, it is “humane” you see. It is enabling, until the ever present unintended consequences start occurring, which they always do.
She is sarcastic, snarky, obnoxious, and like totally engrossed with letting us all know how smart she is. Of course in reality, she is about as smart as a stepped on roach, with all the intellectual depth of a dried up up mud puddle
On MSNBC’s “NOW w/Alex Wagner” on Thursday, comedian Sarah Silverman teamed up with MSNBC regular Lizz Winstead to attack the conservative position on abortion. In a video released earlier in the week, Silverman had appeared with a “profanity-spouting” Jesus to deliver a pro-abortion message.
“It’s total hypocrisy,” Silverman said. “I mean, these are people who are anti-big government. And yet they want to make laws about my vagina and what I do with my body. I don’t think that would be tolerated if we started legislating men’s bodies. I mean, the truth is sperm has a sense of smell. That’s just something scientist have known for a decade. That means that sperm is life. And so in my opinion, we’ve got to save those babies. If they’re going to masturbate into a shower drain or a gym sock, we’ve got to stop them.”
Sarah, you ignorant woman you. No one, anywhere wants to have anything to do with your vagina. Frankly, a gym sock is more attractive, and likely smarter, so get over your self will ya? Yes, I know, Sarah, I know, you think women are all about their sexual organs because you are an angry, embittered Feminut, and that is what angry, bitter Feminuts like you reduce women to.
Leftists like you love to point your finger at Conservatives and say we are “anti-science” yet, Sarah, it is you, and your ilk that turns a blind eye towards medical science where abortion is concerned. No wonder you are so damned angry and negative, your whole ideology is based on lies, and base denials of reality. Face it Sarah, you are no better than a doll with a string on the back. Pull the string and you utter some nonsensical blatherings like the mind-numbed useful idiot you are!
Tens of thousands of pro-life activists endured frigid temperatures and a snow storm Wednesday as they gathered at the National Mall in Washington, D.C., to mark the 41st anniversary of the landmark Roe v. Wade ruling that has prepared the way for an estimated 56 million abortions.
In past years the march has drawn crowds estimated between 400,000 and 650,000. However, the winter storm that blew through Washington on Tuesday led to cancellations of numerous buses and planes, creating a visible drop in numbers at this year’s rally and march. The Philadelphia archdiocese, for instance, canceled all of their buses.
Famed Christian singer and songwriter Matt Maher was scheduled to lead music for a half hour before the rally, but his slot was cancelled because of the weather. Instead he opened and closed the rally beginning at noon.
Taking the stage to welcome the marchers shortly after noon, March for Life organizers insisted pro-lifers wouldn’t be daunted by the frigid weather in D.C. “We may be freezing, but we’re freezing for the best cause in the world,” said Patrick Kelly, chairman of the March for Life Education and Defense Fund. “No sacrifice is too great for this cause,” said Jeanne Monahan, the group’s newly minted president.
Speakers at the rally included Dr. James Dobson, Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R-VA), Rep. Dan Lipinski (D-IL), Rep. Chris Smith (R-NJ), Rep. Vicky Hartzler (R-MO), and Washington State Democratic Legislator Roger Freeman.
“Your faces are cold but your hearts are on fire, right?” Dr. James Dobson, founder of Focus on the Family, asked the crowd. He related that in 1973 he was driving home on the freeway when he learned of the Roe v. Wade decision. “I grieved over it because I knew it meant millions of babies would die,” he said. “Who would’ve known it would be 56 million by this point 41 years later?”
Telling the story of a couple he counselled to choose life for their child, he told the crowd, “I say to you, if you’re facing a similar situation, …let your baby live!” He then marvelled at the youth of the crowd. “Look at the young people who are here!” he said. “You are the hope of the future and together we’re going to win this fight!”
Majority Leader Eric Cantor, R-VA, who changed his flight to Israel to attend the March, thanked those present for “braving these unbelievably cold temperatures” and “giving voice to our cause of protecting life.” “I believe that one day in the not too distance future our movement will be victorious because we will prevail in securing a culture of life,” he said.
“You are our movement’s not-so-secret weapon,” he added. “Those of us in public office are merely fortunate to stand on your shoulders.”
The majority leader also announced that next week, the House of Representatives “will vote once and for all to end taxpayer funding for abortions.”
Vicky Hartzler, R-MO, told marchers, “We are here today to remember the millions of lives devastated with abortion and to pledge ourselves anew to upholding the most fundamental” right, “the right to life.”
Noting there are 1.2 million abortion per year in the U.S., she said, “There are more babies who perish each year through abortion than people who live in an entire congressional district.”
An adoptive mother, Hartzler said, “Every life is valuable and has a god ordained purpose. All babies are wanted.”
Giovanna Romero of Latinas por la Vida told marchers that blacks and Hispanics are “systematically targeted by the culture of death.” “Who is with me to fight the good fight?” she asked. “We are the pro-life generation and we will make a mark in history… We will make an end to abortion!”
Donna Harrison, executive director of the American Association of Pro-Life Ob/Gyns, said the front lines of the abortion battle are changing. It’s no longer the clinic and the hospital, but the dorm room and campus clinic because of the promotion of emergency contraceptive drugs, which act as abortifacients. She told the youth, “you’ve now become the frontline in the battle against abortion.”
After the noon rally on the Mall, participants marched to the Supreme Court, where post-abortion men and women from the Silent No More Awareness Campaign shared their testimony.
The rally schedule was shortened today because of the cold, with temperatures hovering around zero, the marchers are undaunted.
In a homily at Washington’s National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception Tuesday evening, Cardinal Sean O’Malley said the cold weather is “just perfect, because the colder it is the better our witness. They will know we are serious. That is why we are here.”
“We absolutely will go on tomorrow. The March has never been canceled because of extreme temperatures, and it won’t be canceled tomorrow for that reason,” Jeanne Monahan, president of the March for Life Education and Defense Fund, told the Law of Life Summit on Tuesday.
March organizers highlighted the fact that members of both parties spoke, although Republicans made a stronger showing. The Republican National Committee has said they are delaying their annual winter meeting for the March this year and have chartered a bus to bring legislators to the Mall.
The theme for this year’s march is adoption, which Monahan called a “heroic decision” for women in crisis pregnancies. “We want to eliminate the stigma of adoption and encourage women to pursue this noble option,” she said in a press release.
The March for Life organizers are encouraging Twitter users to use the hashtags #whywemarch and #marchforlife throughout the day.

Eleanor Holmes Norton is a walking testament to the dangers of idiocy
Democratic Congressional Delegate Eleanor Holmes Norton (D-D.C.) appeared on MSNBC on Monday where she declared a new bill working its way through the House of Representatives amounts to a declaration of a “new war on women.” She said she was denied the chance to speak at an all-male congressional hearing on a bill which would limit the use of public funds to provide abortion in the District of Columbia. Denouncing the bill, Norton said that the GOP “lost the war” but seem eager to fight it again.
“I took special issue with the hearing because I wanted to testify on a very small part of the hearing that does real damage to the District of Columbia,” Norton said. “Part of a larger bill that was the kickoff to the new war on women.”
Just make it up there Eleanor, just make it up as you go. If you really want to see a war, consider the Left’s War on Honest Debate!
Stacy McCain has proof from Argentina, where radical nutcase supporters of abortion attacked Catholics who dare to be pro-life.
You may have seen this video earlier — Ed Morrissey featured it at Hot Air — but I didn’t see it until it was tweeted to me by Covenant College student Keifer Wynn and, because it was in Spanish, at first I wasn’t quite sure what I was looking at.
“Abortistas atacan a católicos que defendían la Catedral de San Juan,” is the headline, and the description: “Estas son las hordas de lesbianas y abortistas del Encuentro Nacional de Mujeres.”
So, translation via Google: “Abortionists attack Catholics defending the Cathedral of San Juan. These are the hordes of lesbians and abortionists of the National Conference of Women.” Keep in mind that when I watched this, I hadn’t even translated the titles yet:
Every year in Argentina, the National Conference of Women — sponsored by various non-profit NGOs — gathers in some city and, in recent years, the event has featured a protest against the Catholic Church. So when the radical feminists marched on the cathedral in San Juan de Cuyo on November 24, they were met by 1,500 Catholics who locked arms to form a human shield around the cathedral:
The women, many of them topless, spray-painted the men’s crotches and faces and swastikas on their chests and foreheads, using markers to paint their faces with Hitler-like mustaches. They also performed obscene sexual acts in front of them and pushed their breasts onto their faces, all the while shouting “get your rosaries out of our ovaries.” . . .
While the site of the protest was the front of the cathedral . . . “the whole city awoke to graffiti in favor of abortion.”
Inside the cathedral, 700 people were also in prayer accompanied by their bishop . . .
After unsuccessfully trying to get into the building, the women burned a human-sized effigy of Pope Francis. “If the pope were a woman, abortion would be legal,” they shouted . . .
The police reportedly told the media they were unable to intervene because “they are women.”
As usual with rabid abortion proponents, their deranged state of mind is pretty clear to see. they celebrate perverse sexual acts, and of course they celebrate killing babies in the womb as if it were some sacred “choice”.
Nuttier Than Nutty Nuttery it would seem. I have had debates with several hard core “choicers”, and let me tell you, they redefine the word fanatic. The Other McCain report on some of these whack jobs
This is crazy. In the comments on an earlier post, somebody linked an article at RH Realty Check, a site that is pro-abortion with the monomaniacal zeal of a Chinese Communist Party “family planning” commissar. I mean, Amanda Marcotte is moderate by comparison.
“RH” stands for “Reproductive Health,” which is progressive code for KILL YOUR BABY NOW and this is from their “About Us” page:
We enjoyed the support of the UN Foundation and the editorial independence entrusted to us for six years, from 2006-2012. In January 2012 we officially became our own independent 501c3 non-for-profit organization.
OK, now I understand: The UN Foundation was something zero-population-growth zealot Ted Turner donated a bunch of money to, back when Ted was banging Jane Fonda and before the Time/Warner/AOL merger devastated his fortune. So that makes sense.
Anyway, somebody linked an RH Reality Check article in the comments and, while the article itself wasn’t particularly interesting, I noticed that on the sidebar they had this link:
WTF? They’re campaigning against a reality TV show because of the Holocaust? I mean, Here Comes Honey Boo-Boo is a crime against humanity as far as I’m concerned, but why would anyone invoke the Holocaust to argue for the cancellation of the Duggars?
Go read it all folks. As I stated I used to try to talk sense to pro-abortion people on message boards, and the old Delphi forums. In fact I got to know Ed Daley on some of those forums. I really was a bit naive back then. I thought I could use medical facts to convince the “choicers” that abortion kills a baby. To me shock, and horror, I found out they too believe it is a baby, and they revel in the “right” to destroy it. To them, a woman is not whole unless she can have her baby executed in the womb. How depraved are they? Well, consider many of the regularly compared unborn babies to parasites, and cancerous tumors, yes really.
For years Auburn and Florida played every October, it was a great rivalry, so during those games, I always hated that other team that wears Blue and Orange. I would even scream “War Chicken” to mock Auburn fans. But following the rules of the SEC, Team First, Conference Second, Game Third, I have always Pulled for Auburn in bowl games, and out of conference games. But, on this story, I am a enthusiastic supporter of Auburn! So is Stacy McCain, and he is a Bama fan!
. . . but she almost didn’t have a name, because if not for a woman’s courageous decision, she never even would have had a life:
Auburn University selected its 100th Miss Homecoming in Molly Anne Dutton this weekend. . . .
The 22-year-old’s biological mother was faced with an extremely difficult situation. The victim of a sexual assault, the young woman became pregnant with Dutton and was given an ultimatum by her husband: Either abort the baby or get a divorce.
She chose to keep the baby, leading to a “ridiculously inspirational life story” for her daughter. Rather than aborting, she carried the baby to term and worked with Lifeline Children’s Services, a Christian adoption group in Birmingham, Ala., to ensure that the baby girl was given a good life.
Go read the whole amazing story and try not to cry too much.
God Bless Molly, and her mother for inspiring us all. Love that smile Molly!

Jodi Giddings at Victory Girls writes about Dr. Susan Robinson, one of only four . . . well, “doctors” is the word, but it seems somehow inappropriate to describe someone whose business is death:
Only four American doctors remain who perform third-trimester abortions. One of those “doctors” is Susan Robinson. Dr. Robinson, aside from her other duties in her practice, kills viable babies for a living, what she deems “abortion medicine.” And as if that isn’t troubling enough, it gets even worse: she takes photos of the dead babies for their mothers to take home in memorial. Yep, you read that right. Dr. Robinson, after “euthanizing” infants mere weeks from being born snaps photos of them for the mother to take home to remember the dead infant. . . .
As I said SICK! But that is not the most disturbing part. Poor, poor Dr. Robinson is sad because other doctors do not appreciate her acts of infanticide
“Being an abortion provider is very stigmatized. Other doctors look down on you and think of you as like the lowest of the low.”
Gee, I wonder why anyone, especially doctors who have devoted their lives to SAVING lives would frown upon you “Dr” Robinson? maybe because what you do is evil? Maybe that has something to do with it? Maybe it is due to the fact that real doctors know better than anyone how despicable your deeds really are?
Hey, this could be progress. About time last year, the Democratic National Convention booed when the platform committee tried to backtrack and add a mention of God that had been earlier removed. In Iowa, at least Democrats have gone back to openly praying, but perhaps they should be hoping that God isn’t listening:
They made the unusual decision, for Democrats, to begin the event with a prayer. This was likely in response to a prayer vigil being conducted by pro-life activists at the same time nearby.
Des Moines activist Midge Slater took the podium and spent five and a half minutes thanking God for abortion rights, abortion doctors and taxpayer funding for abortions. She also referred to the decision to have an abortion as “a blessing”.
During the entire prayer, State Senator Jack Hatch and Rep. Tyler Olson, both of whom are running for governor, kept their heads bowed and eyes closed, joining in the group prayer.
The Iowa Republican transcribed a bit of the prayer, which goes on for quite a while:
“We give thanks, oh Lord, for the doctors, both current and future, who provide quality abortion care.”
“We pray for increased financial support for low-income women to access contraception, abortion and childcare.”
“Today, we pray for women in developing nations, that they may know the power of self-determination. May they have access to employment, education, birth control and abortion.”
“Today we pray for the families who have chosen. May they know the blessing of choice.”
Here’s my favorite part, very obviously aimed at the pro-life demonstrators:
“We pray for women who have been made afraid by their paternalistic religion.”
Afraid? For feminists, they don’t seem to have much faith in women to decide for themselves whether to live as Christians and follow its tenets without fear forcing them into it. However, based on this prayer for blessings on abortions and the demand to spread it worldwide, I’d guess that they’re less interested in faith than they are in their own political agendas anyway.
1. Health Care
Nancy Pelosi described the Affordable Care Act (ACA) as something that “captures the spirit of our founders” and will “put money back in the pockets of America’s patients” (WSJ, House.gov). However, only 46% of Americans had a favorable view of the ACA when a Democrat-controlled Congress voted it into law. Since then, approval has decreased to 37%.
According to Pew Research, less than 1/3 of Americans are happy with our nation’s education system. However, instead of promoting an overhaul of the system, which the public wants, the President and legislators send the message that they don’t care by enrolling their kids in elite private schools and cutting initiatives like the D.C. Opportunity Scholarship Program (CNS News).
In his series of speeches on the economy this summer, President Obama insisted that “America has fought its way back” and has already “recovered” (LA Times). Yet, only 28% of the public feels that the U.S. economy is recovering.
Democrats’ 2012 election platforms saw a larger embrace of pro-choice stances than we’ve ever seen before. Their TV ads were filled with pro-choice messaging, abortion rights activists were main speakers at the DNC, and the head of Planned Parenthood even introduced President Obama at a campaign rally (Politico). In the real world, more Americans feel that having an abortion is “morally wrong” than those who don’t.
When George Zimmerman was deemed “not guilty” of the murder of Trayvon Martin, countless Democratic leaders echoed the President’s calls for an honest discussion on race. In fact, 62% of Democrats felt that the Zimmerman verdict raised issues about race than needed to be discussed, though only 36% of the total public agreed with them.
6. Trust in Government
In recent years, the Democratic party has been riddled with one scandal after another, from Benghazi to Weiner to the IRS. As a result, the public’s trust in government has plummeted since 2007 – it is now a measly 19%. Despite how “phony” Obama may believe the scandals to be, the American public definitely feels otherwise.
Even a blind monkey with half a brain could tell you that there’s a disconnect between the current administration and the public. Just how big is this disconnect? Surprisingly massive. On the major issues that dominate interviews and debates each year, Democratic leaders are increasingly distancing themselves from the views of the majority of American people.
The President is taking multi-million dollar vacations while regular Americans are decreasing their number of paid off days just to keep their jobs. Legislators are enrolling their children in elite private schools while the rest of us are volunteering personal time and money to help our local public school systems. The NSA is defending its right to access public phone records, though we are adamantly calling for it to stop.

Not Everyone Who Has an Abortion Is a Woman
The “War on Women” isn’t just a war on women. Trans men and gender-non-conforming people are losing their rights too, and we need to rework how we frame these “women’s issues.”
Trans Men have abortions? Not if they are still men. And whether or not someone chooses to “conform” to gender is irrelevant. Men do not get pregnant, but who am I to rain on the Gender Dysfunctional “I am a Victim Too” parade of self-pity. What a Cisexxist I am!
Abortion is so often framed as a women’s issue by both those who advocate for abortion rights and those who seek to dismiss abortion as frivolous. And for abortion rights, a movement that took root in the late 1960s and early 1970s, this makes sense. Prior to a deeper understanding and problematizing of gender and the way that it works, in our social construction, only women had abortions because only women could get pregnant. But in 2013, we should know better, and we need to do better.
At this crucial moment for reproductive freedom and abortion access, the abortion rights movement stands at yet another crossroads: How do we adequately address and include those who have abortions but are not women?
We must acknowledge and come to terms with the implicit cissexism in assuming that only women have abortions. Trans men have abortions. People who do not identify as women have abortions. They deserve to be represented in our advocacy and activist framework. Honestly, I am guilty of perpetuating that harmful myth, both in my rhetoric and framing. I often frame abortion restrictions as misogynistic attacks meant to control women’s reproductive lives, and that is true. But abortion restrictions also affect the lives of people who aren’t women, and they hinder trans men and gender-non-conforming people and others who were Designated Female at Birth (DFAB) from accessing abortion care, as well.
Oh great now I will get angry emails from the anti-Cissexism crowd, and, I suppose the DFAB community as well.
Planned Parenthood Gulf Coast, which serves southeast Texas and Louisiana, agreed this week to pay $1.4 million to the state of Texas, settling claims that one of the largest abortion providers in the Southeast had fraudulently overbilled the state’s Medicaid program.
Texas Attorney General Greg Abbott’s office stated that its investigation into the fraud allegations “revealed that Planned Parenthood Gulf Coast improperly billed the Texas Medicaid program for products and services that were never actually rendered, not medically necessary, and were not covered by the Medicaid program.”
The Texas Planned Parenthood allegedly “falsified material information in patients’ medical records” to bolster fraudulent claims for reimbursement.
Alliance Defending Freedom’s recent analysis of state and federal audits of family planning programs suggests that in 12 states, Planned Parenthood affiliates overbilled Medicaid for more than $8 million. One federal audit of New York’s Medicaid family planning program reported that certain providers, “especially Planned Parenthoods,” had engaged in improper practices resulting in overpayment.
Despite mounting accusations of fraud, the organization that performs roughly one out of every four abortions in the U.S. has continued to ride the waves of taxpayer funding to annual surpluses. During its last reporting year alone, Planned Parenthood received over half a billion dollars in taxpayer government funding, all the while performing a record 333,964 abortions. To solidify its place as the top abortion provider in the country, Planned Parenthood announced that all local affiliates would have to begin providing abortion services starting in 2013.
If allegations of fraud and its single-minded provision of abortion services isn’t enough to question a continual stream of taxpayer dollars, Planned Parenthood’s opposition to legal protections for infants born after botched abortions and the group’s apparent willingness to abet the sex trafficking of minor girls should at least raise scrutiny of the organization’s federal funding.
The organization also allegedly turned a blind eye to unsafe and unsanitary conditions in Pennsylvania and Virginia. State officials began investigating a Planned Parenthood in Delaware this spring after two of the clinic’s nurses quit, claiming that the clinic kept unsafe, unsanitary conditions while performing what one report called “meat-market style of assembly-line abortions.”
“Planned Parenthood is far less concerned with providing competent healthcare to women than it is with padding its bottom line with taxpayer dollars,” says Alliance Defending Freedom in its report.
Policymakers looking for organizations that are capable of self-funding more of their activities would do well to view Planned Parenthood’s subsidies with a critical eye.
Head over to Sentry Journal, and check out this piece by Right Hand Man. Here is a sample
I cannot get beyond the notion that the suffering of one trumps the life of an innocent. I also cannot think of any other situation where this is true outside of Christology (Christ’s death for sinners). Do we kill innocent people to lessen the suffering of others? This is certainly unethical, and framed properly, nearly all would agree. What each proponent of abortion in this circumstance is saying is that they would rather see a baby snuffed out rather than see a victim suffer more. The question that must be asked is what possible justice can be explained from the perspective of the unborn child?
