There is a lie being spread, of course by the party of liars, that the overturn of Roe v Wade would make abortion instantly illegal.
I wish it were so but it is not. It simply puts the matter back in in the hands of the legislators, where it belonged in the first place. There is, naturally, a reason those in favor of the death of babies fear the legislators. In spite of the claim that one and are in favor of abortion, they do realize that the vast majority are not in favor of it as a form of birth control or gender selection.
Moreover, many states just might come up with some real logical restrictions. For instance:
- Time restrictions, as only in the first trimester.
- Safety restrictions. Today there are virtually no requirements for clinics. There are no follow-up requirements. In some cases, parents only find out about a daughter’s abortion after complications.
- Maybe a week or so delay should be in order. It is an important decision that will likely change things forever. It is not like taking the wrong exit from the interstate.
- A true conversation should take place with the one having the abortion. She should be well aware of possible complications and possibly life long problems.
- Some say a sonogram should be reqired. Is it so wrong to require the patient to realize just what she is about to take part in.
- Would it be so bad to require at least one parent’s permission or at least notice. First, post op problems can occur. Second, all other medicines and procedures require patient’s consent.
- Finally, the abotionists should be subject to malpractice lawsuits as any other doctor.
Currently, none of the above requirements are in effect. Perhaps, maybe, just possibly, some good can come out of this, even though the killing will likely continue.
Maybe parents will not be blind sided by a botched abortion. Is that so horrible?
