Well, ya know, I think Bush's partial birth abortion ban would have stood, if they had done just one little tiny thing.....like acknowledge the fact
that there just might be a few people out there in the country that might have needed it to live, like many doctors claim!!!
And, then, well, we began seeing women having charges pressed against them for refusing to have c-sections that doctors had insisted.....one left the
hospital and went to another....and well, before she delivered her nice healthy baby, the first hospital went to a court, and got an order that she be
forced to have the c-section. There are alot of unnecessary c-sections being done in this country, because well let's face it, doctors are human,
and well, us humans aren't all perfect....and it pays more to do a c-section!
But, I think the intention was made clear.....and some want the rights of the baby to be above the rights of the mother. And, well, if the mother
dies in childbirth, or is totally incompacitated throughout most of it, oh well, tough luck, or if there is any doubt whatsoever that the pregnacy is
dangerous to her, well oh well, if she can't prove it to us, too bad!!
If there is any possiblity whatsoever that there is an undue risk of the women suffering severe consequences by delivering the baby, well, then it
should be her to decide weather or not she is willing to give up her life and health for her child....no one else!
Bush chose not to offer her that choice....
Maybe Bush should try to present another law, one that at least puts some concern on the mother's health also.
