On Digg: BREAKING: Supreme Court Backs Ban on Partial Birth Abortion Procedure!!!

Featured Comment:

This procedure is done in less than 1% of 1% of all abortions. The only reason someone would have this done is to save the mother’s life (ie: she will actually DIE if she tries to continue the pregnancy) or because the life of the fetus would be so greatly affected by a birth defect of some kind that this is mercy. I’m talking about the kind of thing where the baby, if born, wouldn’t last an hour, or a day. Horrible deformities.

This is not a “method of birth control”. Doctors so rarely perform this procedure because it is hell on the mother, both mentally and physically.

“the woman didn’t want to deal with a kid.”

How many children have you adopted? It isn’t just “dealing with a kid”. There are physical ramifications, and financial ones, and mental ones. I know women who I would really prefer not be mothers, and I know women who would die if they were to get pregnant and try to carry the baby to term.

Walk in someone else’s shoes, and don’t judge what you don’t know.
