Although I’m new posting here, as one who has lurked for years, I must advise you that you will receive little sympathy for your apparent views, something I suspect you have already realized.
Liberals have controlled the courts in the U.S. for years now and the courts rule by judicial fiat; legislating from the bench and ruling by decree. If the Burger Court had stayed out of the issue and allowed the majority of 200 million or so (at the time) Americans to decide this issue, as opposed to their unmitigated arrogance in taking it upon themselves on a majority of nine basis, then there would have been far less dissension, let alone violence, regarding the issue.
In most other Western democracies, abortion was legalized by legislative initiative. None has seen anything like the dissension we have seen over the issue in America.
In that light, the courts in Kansas have “interpreted” the Kansas legislation restricting third trimester abortions to reasons of the impairment of a major bodily function in regard to the mother as including the mental health of the mother, rendering abortion on demand up to almost the point of birth as de fato legal there as any woman can simply claim she is seriously depressed because of her pregnancy.
I would like to ask all something of a factual nature. Is there any evidence that Dr. Tiller, for reasons of conscience as opposed to financial reasons, ever refused to perform a requested abortion at his clinic? (I am not implying that he refused because the woman couldn’t foot his fee. I don’t know if he had done such or not. If he had, I simply want to exclude that reason.)
Thanks to all.
