A HIGH COURT yanks a controversial social issue out of the democratic realm of politics and debate. Instead of leaving the matter for voters and legislators to wrestle with, the justices unilaterally impose a revolutionary legal change. Many people welcome the ruling -- but many more don't.

**The few journalists who investigated the abortion advocates' claims learned the same thing. David Brown, a reporter for the Washington Post and an M.D. , found "that the majority of these abortions are performed on normal fetuses" and that "in most cases where the procedure is used, the physical health of the woman . . . is not in jeopardy."**

What?????

From the WP??????

**Ruth Padawer of the Bergen Record exploded the claim that partial-birth abortions are performed at most only a few hundred times a year. In just one New Jersey clinic, she wrote, 1, 500 such abortions are performed annually. "Most are for elective, not medical reasons," one doctor told her.**

BTTT!

assume, if you will, that W appoints a bunch of SC justices, and Roe is overturned...so it goes to the state legislatures...where, maybe, 40 states ban abortion, and 10 allow it...NY, Cal, Mass...so women in those 40 travel to the other 10 states...

What makes people people is our DNA. Fetuses have unique DNA. Therefore every fetus is a unique potential person. No person has the right to terminate the life of another Innocent person. No person has the right to terminate the innocent life of anybody that has unique DNA. No person has the right to kill innocent people, terminate fetuses, have abortions or preform abortions.

If you disagree, you will have to refute this. You should be charged for being an accomplice to first degree murder, conspiring to preform genocide and should be punished to the full extent of the law for crimes against humanity.

We should not consider our civilization advanced. We should grieve for the 30+ million lives that have been permitted to be burnt out, this is a modern day holocaust. To every person that advocates abortion I ask them if they would of rather had their mother abort them when they were a fetus. I ask everyone that reads this to think of how you can reverse this horrid trend.

Frederick Douglass once said "Find out just what any people will quietly submit to and you have found out the exact measure of injustice and wrong which will be imposed upon them and these will continue until they are resisted." I ask what have people come to that they can not recognize what is right and wrong.
