Okay, I can see how this can get into a serious furball of an argument. My own position is that abortion is a waste of human potential, and I'd like to see a world where people can be responsible enough to not conceive a child in the first place, thus making abortion unnecessary.
Here's where I get angry at the decision:
U.S. District Judge Phyllis Hamilton's ruling came in one of three lawsuits challenging the legislation President Bush signed last year.She certainly wouldn't want prisoners on death row to suffer pain when they're executed (which is why lethal injection is in vogue), but a fetus? Their pain is irrelevant. Unimportant in the grand scheme of things.
She agreed with abortion rights activists that a woman's right to choose is paramount, and that it is therefore ''irrelevant'' whether a fetus suffers pain, as abortion foes contend.
Tell ya what, Judge Hamilton. Give these children a chance to prove themselves to society before deciding how much or how little pain they're supposed to endure.
