Trying to whip up a little pro-abortion hysteria, the AP is reporting on 'restrictions' on abortion
since Bush has taken office.
- Last year, Congress passed a bill making it a separate crime to harm a fetus during an assault on a pregnant woman.
- Last year, Congress passed a different bill that denied federal funds to state and local agencies that act against health care providers and insurers because they don't provide or cover abortions.
- In 2003, Congress outlawed abortions - generally carried out in the second or third trimester - in which a fetus is partially delivered before being aborted.
- In 2002, lawmakers amended the legal definitions for person, human being, child and individual to include any fetus that survives an abortion procedure.
How is a law punishing the harming of a wanted fetus in any way a restriction on abortion?
How is refusing to pay for abortions an infringement of that right?
And, we have a word for 'abortions' committed when a fetus survives being born - that word is 'infanticide'
Over at the AP, it seems that getting one out of four right is considered 'accurate' reporting.
You think I am some kind of pro-life hack? I am pro-choice.
