Okie Dokie... Filed somewhere under the heading of "Redundancy for the sake of duplication of effort and being sure" we find this story working
it's way up from the abyss of 'What the heck?!'
COLUMBIA, S.C. (CN) - Unborn children would receive constitutional rights beginning at conception under a "Stand Your Ground" law that allows
women in South Carolina to use lethal force against anyone threatening their fetuses.
The South Carolina Senate Judiciary Subcommittee voted 3-2 this month to expand the state's "Stand Your Ground" law to include protections for
Okay, what am I missing here? It must be something HUGE. See.. I imagine an unborn fetus. Then I imagine a pregnant woman. Everyone following so far?
Okay.. I figured.
So, unboard baby is onboard the mother, so to speak. One is the other and they are one...yes?
So...HOW in the name of common sense can the defense of the fetus be a separate issue to legislate?!
Was the mother simply going to stand there and be murdered without defense, if not for permission to act in defense of her unborn child??
There are a fwe bills apparenrly working their way through what passes for a State House in that state these days. The opinions against them aren't
"These bills like to define a human being as a 'person' at fertilization, which would create a variety of restrictions that would limit the
reproductive and family building choices of hundreds of thousands of South Carolina residents," said Dr. Michael Slowey, a reproductive
endocrinologist and founder of Coastal Fertility Specialists in Mount Pleasant. "Specifically, these bills would put an end to our ability to perform
in-vitro fertilization, provide contraception and effectively treat abnormal pregnancies, including life-threatening ectopic pregnancies."
I think I'm still hung up on that whole need for 'Stand Your Ground' to a fetus, as if Mom was suicidal to fail in defending HERSELF. If she
wouldn't, then this law won't add courage or backbone or just plain physical ability where it didn't exist before. So...
WHY ATS?! Just.....WHY?? This is a step beyond Political Madness. It's Political Ignorance worn like a badge of honor and kept shiny for display.
