Alvin Williams posted this article at Jewish World Review, recounting the terrible story that prompted Congress to draft the Child Interstate Abortion Notification Act. Click yourself and read the story -- excerpts could not do it justice. Also, here is Mrs. Carroll's testimony about what was done to her 14-year-old daughter by the champions of "choice."
Everybody with a daughter ought to be supporting Mrs. Carroll.
My question is this: Why is this law even necessary? Isn't it already kidnapping to take a child out of state without the parents' consent? Why aren't state AGs prosecuting people who do this? Why do we have to write another law making it illegal to kidnap a child for a specific purpose?
And you could argue that the child got in the car willingly -- but then, evidence is that Adam Walsh got into Otis Toole's car willingly. Children are not capable of making a wise, informed decision about which adults to go with. That's why there are laws against luring them away from their schools or their families.
