    Virginia and the lie at the heart of the pro-choice movement

    https://thecripplegate.com/virginia-...oice-movement/

    Yesterday Virginiaís senate narrowly repealed laws regulating abortion in the state. While only affecting Virginia, their action has nation-wide implications because it exposes the lie at the heart of the pro-choice movementónamely that being pro-choice is about being pro-woman. Consider:

    In 2011 Kermit Gosnell, an abortion doctor, was exposed as a murderer. As in, he literally murdered both women and children and is currently serving a life sentence without the possibility of parole for it. He ran an abortion clinic where teen-aged nurses did the abortions, there were no functioning ultrasound machines, and they used high-pressure tactics to brow-beat vulnerable women into their abortions.

    Many children were born alive because of this, only to have the doctor come in and simply snip their spine with scissors.

    Virginia responded by passing laws to ensure that someone getting an abortion saw an ultra-sound, waited 24 hours between their first visit and their abortion, and that the person doing the abortion was a doctor. In the Gosnell case, one mother had died after a botched abortion when paramedics could not fit their gurney through the hallways to get to her. So Virginia also passed a requirement mandating that abortion centers be compliant with medical building codes.

    These are the measures repealed yesterday by the Virginia Senate.


    Please read the rest of the article.


    So sad. Not surprising, but very tragic.

    Basically what they're saying is, if you're a woman you only have the right to go to what amounts to a back-alley clinic, and have your abortion done by a medical school dropout. Wait, wasn't that what making it legal was supposed to prevent? Hmmm...
    Curiosity never hurt anyone. It was stupidity that killed the cat.
