#1 Ohhh, there'll be a lot of hootin' and hollerin' about how this somehow applies to ALL abortions. The SCOTUS will ignore the facts and details of the case law and strike it down. They're all in favor of an implied right to privacy, but itch to restrict Second Amendment rights, despite the plain text.

Fact is, although I'm pro-life and applaud this move at one level, I think this is over-reaching on the part of both the Congress, President, and the SCOTUS. Traditionally, issues of manslaughter and murder are the purview of the States, and issues of abortion should be decided at the state level, not the federal.

Another issue is that of regulation of Medical procedures. Do the feds and the states have a right to regulate what kinds of medical procedures are conducted within the state? If you consider the practice of medicine as a business, then I suppose, given the current environment, that you should. My preference would be that the state should butt out of any kind of business, providing the right to sue as a safeguard.

However, looking at the facts of the case, Abortion can be defined as malpractice: The claim is that the operation is on the Mother, but it can be demonstrated that the body parts extracted are NOT from the mother. I have no objection to a woman and a doctor agreeing that an amputation should take place, but would be highly annoyed if the doctor then cut MY leg off. The only reason why abortionists aren't sued is that the victims, being underage, dead, and sold out by their parents, can't bring suit. Exploitation? You betcha...

#4 Umm, Peshawar?

In Peshawar, they wait until the baby is much, much older, THEN kill it.

#5 I have a very, very long list of people well-deserving of post-partum abortions. Let's not go messing with a good thing.

That said, partial-birth abortions are nothing but a grotesque form of infanticide, and I wouldn't want any doctor that's every performed one within six city blocks of me or my family.
