Advocates for life captured a huge victory today in the 8th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals where judges ruled the state of South Dakota can require abortionists to provide specific warnings to patients about just exactly what an abortion is and does.
The much-fought case previously has been to the 8th Circuit for arguments over a preliminary injunction, and the ruling today affirmed part and overturned part of the district court's decision that eventually resulted.
The court found constitutional the state's decision to demand abortionists tell patients three things:
- That the abortion will terminate the life of a whole, separate, unique, living human being;
- That [the patient] has an existing relationship with that unborn human being and that the relationship enjoys protection under the United States Constitution and under the laws of South Dakota;
- That by having an abortion, her existing relationship and her existing constitutional rights with regards to that relationship will be terminated.
Point three: “Abortion will terminated the life of a whole, separate, unique, living human being”. The science has been there for a while now showing this to be the case. So what these judges are saying is that they know that abortion is flat out murder, but they still won't rule against it. And for you limp wristed pansies out there who think that violating states rights or legislating from the bench are a bigger deal than saving the lives of millions of children, your sick twisted ethics would not even be breached by outlawing of abortion from the bench. The Fourteenth Amendment states “nor shall any State deprive any person of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law;” By the laws already in the constitution, recognizing the humanity of an unborn child means that no abortions can be preformed without a trial first.
