LGF (and C&L, linking to LGF) tell me horrible things are afoot in Nebraska, with a woman being forced to give birth to a baby she knew would die, and then to watch said baby die. All because Nebraskan law on abortions provides no exemptions for abortions to occur after the 20th week, even when the fetus is non-viable outside the womb.
People who support this kind of thing disgust me.
Julie Schmit-Albin, who heads Nebraska Right to Life, told the AP in a Sunday interview that the tragic outcome was better than an abortion:
“We acknowledge the tragedy that occurs with a poor prenatal diagnosis for the baby. But isn’t it more humane for the baby to die in a loving manner with comfort care and in the arms of her parents than by the intentional painful death through abortion?”
Answer: Clearly not, when a non-viable child gets to slowly suffocate in its mothers arms, before having any capacity to appreciate that contact. It is also abundantly clear that this horrible, evil woman doesn’t once stop to think about the woman being forced to give birth to a dying fetus. How anyone could even consider, let alone accept that it is humane to force someone to give birth to a non-viable fetus is boggling.
