Amen. I pray, fervently, every day for such an outcome.

How people can continue to support such barbarity is beyond me.

To All:

This is a well-thought-out response, so please, no flames. Any flames will be ignored, because I have no desire to fight.

I have previously posted on FR (and been roundly spanked for it) that it was my belief that abortion should be outlawed beyond the point of fetal viability. Meaning, that once the baby has a 50% chance of surviving on its own outside the womb, that abortion should be illegal.

Many folks posted to me that my stance was unreasonable, because, "Why was the baby any less a baby one day before my magical time limit?" They also asked if that time limit should be moved backward as medical technology progressed to where we could save younger and younger babies (I said "yes" to that).

I thought that it was a reasonable compromise that would have the immediate effect of preventing at least some abortions.

Okay, now to the point ...

After seeing these pictures, I cannot justify my previous position. These babies are much younger than anything that current medical technology could save, yet, they're clearly babies.

If these pictures can change my mind, they can change other minds. Maybe just living in the world we live in will make abortion unacceptable, whether illegal or not.

It's unacceptable for me now, in any case. Y'all were right and I was wrong.

Flame me all you want for my past beliefs, but I won't respond.
