Smiling Federal Judge Richard Casey of New York, who asked some hard questions about the partial birth abortion procedure back when he was scrutinizing so-called doctors who commit the atrocity, nevertheless declared the ban unconstitutional last Thursday, because it didn’t make an exception to protect a woman’s health.
Judge Okays “Gruesome, Barbaric” Abortion Procedure
Judge Casey had himself referred to the procedure as “gruesome, brutal, barbaric and uncivilized,” but never mind all that — it’s just fine to commit “gruesome, brutal , barbaric uncivilized” — and we might add ” a horribly painful and totally unnecessary” form of killing. But just in case a doctor decides this would be the safest way for him to make sure the baby is dead, it’s ok to do it.
According to literally thousands of real doctors, the operation is never necessary for a woman’s health, but to the contrary, it is quite dangerous to her health. But ignorant Federal judges can be found easily, and the baby killers know who they are, and where to find them. So the barbarism continues unabated.
We were interviewed by CBS when the ruling came down and said that the law was good for getting the story on abortion out, but that ultimately all abortion must be outlawed. These mincing steps are good for publicity, but will never save the life of a baby scheduled for abortion.
Last June a pro-abortion District Judge in San Francisco declared the law unconstitutional, and we have one to go in Nebraska. Then the Supremes will get another crack at the ban, and they’ve already declared it unconstitutional once, so probably will again — but hope springs eternal.
Democrats for Life Hold on to Hope
We have always had a kind of soft spot in our heart for the poor Democrats for Life, and there they were, out in Boston being treated like dirt by most of the other Democrats, while Planned Parenthood was handing out pins and literature and acting like they ran the Democrat party, which they virtually do. But the Democrats for Life were there, all two or three dozen of them.
Asked if they see any signs of hope, former Ambassador to the Vatican, Ray Flynn said he does, and that they will just keep planting seeds. He says more Democrats are pro-life than anyone imagines. We hope he’s right.
