    So the six-year-olds killed in Newton would be considered twenty-first trimester abortions? I bet the libs could get behind that. Of course, then they'd be arguing that only the government and spree killers should be allowed guns.

    First, I in no way agree with their original idea. it's wretched and shameful. However, I think the idea is that after the child is born it is determined that it is mentally or physically handicapped and the parents elect to not raise (or don't have the means to raise) a special needs child it can then be terminated. I suppose it would also cover premies.

    Either way, it's a horrid idea.

    This is exactly what many pro-life people have been worried about, and what the pro-choice people kept saying would never come up. That the idea was just to horrible. Ta-da, here it is.

    Works for me.

    How does one abort an afterbirth? I thought it exited naturally in most cases.

    You guys should read "Freakonomics" for an interesting angle on abortion.

    Correct me if I'm wrong, but haven't a lot of nobler societies practiced abandoning or killing their offspring if it was defective at birth? Several Native American groups come to mind. Cold as it may seem, it does reduce the number of viable mating candidates that carry bad genes.

    Its my opinion that the jack holes that thought this up should be aborted because obviously they aren't human beings either
