The fairytale is that the "pro-life" side is not planting another legislative landmine devised to provoke a court challenge that would put reconsideration of the U.S. Supreme Court's Roe vs. Wade decision into play. Lee flatly denies this motive, even though the stated strategy of the movement nationally (articulated last May in the National Review) is to use the issue of "partial-birth abortion" for this purpose.
The fairytale is that the bill's intricate definitions of the phrases "living infant," "partially born" and "born" represent an honest attempt to pinpoint the "intact dilation and extraction" procedure and nothing more.
Nothing could be further from the truth.
"This bill can easily be construed to prohibit the safest and most common first-trimester abortions, with no health exception and no provision for rape or incest," Bednar said. "These folks know what they're doing."
That they do. And telling the truth isn't part of the Infants Protection Act.
So thanks for your "defense" of women and their physicians, dear "pro-life" activists.
