The thing that really pisses me off about this is reading that the doctors who are prepared to perform this procedure, on a child that would not have lived outside the womb for any significant period of time, are risking their lives to do so. The article states that all of the people who work at this clinic are paid very well because they know that their lives are in jeopardy - that there are people out there who consider life to be so 'sacred' that they would be prepared to kill the workers at this clinic. The article further mentions that one doctor who performed this procedure has already been killed. Guess his right to life was not all that great, huh?
I am not trying to initiate a debate on abortion in general - we all have our own opinions about that and we're not going to change anyone else's by arguing about it. But to me this was not an abortion - this was preventing further suffering for an unborn child that was not going to live and suffering for its mother too. And there are people out there who would kill both her and the doctor who did this because of it.
Please - if you want to debate the rights and wrongs of abortion in general do so on your own wall. I am interested only in discussing this specific case and those like it.
