    My, what a big baby

    The Partial Birth Abortion technique is so gruesome, that even in liberty loving America, only the fringe pro-abortion fanatics support it.
    And I must hand it to Amnesty International's Larry Cox. Whereas most untrained people will save the point of an article for the last paragraph, he has placed all that is important in his letter to Bishop Skylstad in the third from last paragraph.
    A little but of style makes tit-for-tat very much more interesting.
    Mr. Cox would be a formidable Poker player, yet if you stand up to the bluff, eventually one must show one's cards.
    Finally, I want to set the record straight on AI's position on laws against partial birth abortions. The bishops' statement misstated the facts. AI does not seek to define gestational limitations on abortion. We recognize instead that states may impose reasonable gestational limitations on access to abortion. However, because AI does oppose imprisonment and criminal sanctions for women and providers, AI opposes the specific provisions of the federal law upheld by the U.S. Supreme Court in Gonzales v. Carhart that criminalizes doctors who perform particular types of abortions.
    Amnesty International will allow no serious sanctions against this during birth abortion method.
    Thank You Mr. Cox. That's all I needed to know.
    The baby is half out of the womb. That would fit most people's definition of "reasonable gestational limitations". But for Amnesty International, applying serious consequences toward gestational linitations trumps everything.
    To me, disallowing consequences is not quite a neutral position, but rather liberty.
    And although I believe in maximum liberty for all things reasonable, abortion is not one of those reasonable things. Especially since the baby is likely to be staring the abortionist in the eyes.
