Abortion lobby gets what absolutist misses
Yes, another smartass Pro Life News headline: INDIANA BILL REQUIRES ABORTION DOCTORS TO HAVE HOSPITAL PRIVILEGES (AND THEN YOU CAN KILL THE BABY)
Evidently the Pro Life News editor doesn't understand something that the abortion lobby is capable of understanding: Most abortionists are circuit-riding quacks who can't get local hospital privileges. So what the bill boils down to in practice is, "No, you can't kill the baby."
Does the Pro Life News editor object to areas being utterly without an abortionist, and the reduction of abortions that this invariably brings? If so, then he has common ground with the abortion lobby.
What would this bill do, that the Pro Life News editor objects to? Why, it gives approval to abortion, as long as the doctor jumps through certain hoops! (This despite the fact that the bill's "prochoice" opponents know full well that it'll reduce abortion, and that reducing abortion is part of the sponsors' agenda. The editor of Pro Life News can't seem to get that abortionists are smart enough to realize that prolifers disapprove of their practice, and that any legislation we're pushing for has that as an underlying motive, regardless of whatever other motives might come into play.)
Far better to actually kill the babies, perhaps maiming or killing some of the mothers while you're at it, than to not kill the babies at all, if you're going to be not-killing the babies while under the impression that we'd have been okay with you killing them as long as you had hospital privileges.
You see, far more important than whether or not the babies live or die is whether or not the people who might have killed them understand that we disapprove. It's our passing of moral judgment that matters, and not whether or not the baby is torn to pieces and thrown out in the biohazard waste.
Makes sense. Not to me...
