Skirting Morality

In an effort to keep women’s rights above those of their child in the womb and in response to the recent Supreme Court decision upholding the Partial-Birth Abortion Ban Act, abortionists have turned to a previously infrequent technique that kills the child before it leaves the womb using a lethal injection. Then the doctor completes the abortion…which isn’t really an abortion anymore since the child is already dead.

This comes as no surprise since, to liberals, unborn children are no more than a fetus, and undeserving of equal rights.

In response to the Supreme Court decision upholding the Partial-Birth Abortion Ban Act, many abortion providers in Boston and around the country have adopted a defensive tactic. To avoid any chance of partially delivering a live fetus, they are injecting fetuses with lethal drugs before procedures.

That clinical shift in late-term abortions goes deeply against the grain, some doctors say: It poses a slight risk to the woman and offers her no medical benefit.

“We do not believe that our patients should take a risk for which the only clear benefit is a legal one to the physician,” Dr. Philip D. Darney, chief of obstetrics at San Francisco General Hospital, wrote in e-mail. He has chosen not to use the injections.

But others, although they do not perform the banned procedure, feel compelled to do all they can to protect themselves and their staff from the possibility of being accused. Upheld in April, the federal ban is broadly written, does not specify an age for the fetus, and carries a two-year prison sentence.

Leave it to liberals to find any and every way possible to skirt morality. Of course, can we realistically expect anything more from a group that has thrived on turning this moral issue into a political one 34 years ago. To liberals therefore, since the issue is a political one, finding loopholes are the only way to survive when one of your staple issues takes a moral turn for the worse.
