Our Dark Day

A federal judge in San Francisco has ruled that the partial birth abortion ban act is unconstitutional because the measure infringes on a woman's right to choose.

Choose what? This isn't an abortion. This is the cutting up and killing of a baby as it is being born. Have these people no shame, no morals, no sense? Apparently not.

President Bush signed the measure in November, saying "a terrible form of violence has been directed against children who are inches away from birth while the law looked the other way."

The American Medical Association has said there is never a medical necessity for this procedure, known medically as intact dilation and extraction. Sounds so clinical and impersonal, doesn't it?

If a gruesome, horrible procedure like this can't be stopped, will we stop at anything?

Apparently we will not. Whatever our corrupt minds can conceive we are prepared to do. Whatever our corrupt bodies can conceive we are prepared to kill.

Wouldn't it be nice if judges like this would be impeached? Not likely in our dark day.
