The abortion debate brought home He and his wife have always been pro-choice; recently, they were forced to make the Choice. By Dan Neil May 6, 2007
MY WIFE AND I just had an abortion. Two, actually. We walked into a doctor's office in downtown Los Angeles with four thriving fetuses two girls and two boys and walked out an hour later with just the girls, whom we will name, if we're lucky enough to keep them, Rosalind and Vivian. Rosalind is my mother's name.
We didn't want to. We didn't mean to. We didn't do anything wrong, which is to say, we did everything right. Four years ago, when Tina and I set out on this journey to have children, such a circumstance was unimaginable. And yet there I was, holding her hand, watching the ultrasound as a needle with potassium chloride found its mark, stopping the heart of one male fetus, then the other, hidden in my wife's suffering belly....

Not only did these animals do this, but then the guy brags about it. Lovely home influences the survivors are going to enjoy.

NY Governor Says Abortion and Gay Marriage Keys to Revitalize State
Democratic Governor Eliot Spitzer has proposed legislation that would eliminate gender from the legal definition of marriage and make denying a marriage license to homosexual couples illegal. He has also pledged to strengthen the states abortion laws, to ensure that New Yorkers access to abortion will not be infringed by the U.S. Supreme Courts recent errant decision to uphold the ban on partial birth abortion procedures.
Spitzer cited the anticipated fiscal benefits of these measures as a strong ancillary rationale for the legislation. Aside from the fact that sodomy and abortion are among the unalienable rights guaranteed by our nations Constitution, there are significant economic benefits to our state from this legislation, Spitzer asserted. Homosexuals tend to have above-average incomes. Attracting more of them to New York will help boost state tax-yields. In addition, the absence of children in same-sex marriages and the reduction in birth rates due to more freely available abortions will lessen fiscal pressures on our public schools.
The Governors Reproductive Health and Privacy Protection Act would expand the current health clause to permit abortions late in pregnancies. The bills re-in-vitro section would give women the right to abort fetuses up to 30 days after full emergence, provided dilation of the birth canal sufficient to allow reinsertion of the fetus head could be achieved.
Motherhood is not an easy job, Spitzer remarked. A woman shouldnt be forced into it by arbitrary deadlines. Allowing a test-drive is just common sense. Spitzer called the 30-day period in the bill a reasonable compromise, given current technology. Theres only so much modern medicine can do. Spitzer said he felt confident that a broader range of options on the timing would be available in the future,
In related news, Representative Jerrold Nadler (D-NY) and Senator Barbara Boxer (D-CA), are pushing the Freedom of Choice Act (FOCA), which they say would preserve a womans health by safeguarding her ability to make reproductive health care decisions free from interference. No right is more fundamental to a woman than the right to abortion, said Boxer. No court, no legislatureNOBODY—should be allowed to interfere with this right.
Awwwww, c'mon! What's the worst thing that a gun-toting antiabortion extremist could do? Kill someone? No big deal. (so I'm told)
“maybe not now, not today, but soon and for the rest of your life...”
they’ll regret this decision. every time they see boys playing, they’ll wonder how their two would have fared.
when aborters are so ‘proud’ that they write columns about their decision, that means that they’re seeking approval from others, a sort of plea for validation.
of course, they ain’t gonna get that here
You would think the guy would be a little worried about himself, since he is a male in that house.
“Motherhood is not an easy job, Spitzer remarked. A woman shouldnt be forced into it by arbitrary deadlines. Allowing a test-drive is just common sense.”
Thanks for reminding me of my status as a NY resident.
could someone please tell me what a test drive of motherhood is?
Prayers for the two boys and their sisters. So sad.
“You would think the guy would be a little worried about himself, since he is a male in that house.”
It does seem odd doesn’t it? Maybe the doctor based the decision on statistics...which ones had the best chance of survival.
I wonder if the LA Times would run the same story - except that the reason the "mother and father" aborted the babies is because two of them would have a higher chance of becoming homosexual...
Advances in technology have now made it possible to procreate apart from sexual relations through the meeting in vitro of the germ-cells previously taken from the man and the woman. But what is technically possible is not for that very reason morally admissible. Rational reflection on the fundamental values of life and of human procreation is therefore indispensable for formulating a moral evaluation of such technological interventions on a human being from the first stages of his development.

sorry about that :(
“Keys to Revitalize State”? That is hilarious. His revitalization plan involves policies that, if carried out completely, would entirely depopulate his state. Then who would vote for idiots like Spitzer?
When the girls are born the fact that the boys are not there will start to hit home. Have fun living with that.
Sick, satanic weasels.
Sin speaks to the sinner
in the depths of his heart.
There is no fear of God
before his eyes.
He so flatters himself in his mind
that he knows not his guilt.
In his mouth are mischief and deceit.
All wisdom is gone.
He plots the defeat of goodness
as he lies on his bed.
He has set his foot on evil ways,
he clings to what is evil.
It’s nothing :-).
“When the girls are born the fact that the boys are not there will start to hit home. Have fun living with that.”
And someday they will be old enough to understand what happened, and read this column.
They’ll understand their heads were on the chopping block, and that will certainly be a great bonding experience between parents and children.
