Right To Privacy

As an argument for abortion. LOL!

I'd like to think that if I were PRO-abortion, I could do better than that. I'll have to remember that one next time I want to snort an eight-ball, burn some magic potpourri, sell my body to the night, engage in a little domestic violence...shit, the possibilities are endless!

"That was a PRIVATE murder!," I will tell the cops, "It is none of YOUR beeswax!"

Having said that, I do not think there is Constitutional support to ban first trimester abortion. Nor is there Constitutional support to ban promiscuity. Nor is there Constitutional support to ban the act of gorging oneself on hot dogs for a stupid eating contest. But it still isn't a good idea.

We can't ban everything that isn't a good idea. The mere suggestion says: We, as a people, have no friggin discipline, we are unable to raise children with discipline, and therefore, all bad things should be banned.

Having said that, second and third trimester abortions will forever remain another story. As I've said before, it is one thing for a woman to insist that a child be removed from her uterus. It is quite another for her to insist that the child be killed on the way out. That is murder. And don't tell me about medical exceptions. Exceptions are not the topic here. We are discussing the rule.

When a child has reached the gestational maturity to live independently of the womb, that child has a Constitutional right to life. Period.

I hereby declare that the rule. The debating can stop now.

(Now can we turn the focus to reducing my taxes?)

Why is it that THIS post received much less commentary than the one about the pledge? Perhaps giving reverence to a cloth with painted lines deserves more time than clump of cells.

I, once again, agree with you on this Key.

Because, Dana, abortion, not Social Security, is the real third rail of politics. And the mens who read this site are not about to wade into that maelstrom. Well, that's MY thought, anyway.

Plus, I think most people agree with Key. And without argumentation, whatcha got?
