The tragedy that is Newtown is but a grain of sand on the blasted beach of abortion, and Fulton County Superior Court Judge Doris Downs did her part to ensure that the ghoulish tradition of massacring the unborn will continue in Georgia after 01Jan:

The law bans doctors from performing abortions five months after an egg is fertilized, except when doctors decide a fetus has a defect so severe it is unlikely to live. The law also makes an exception to protect the life or health of the mother, though that does not apply to a mother’s mental health.
The American Civil Liberties Union of Georgia filed a lawsuit on behalf of three obstetricians challenging the law’s constitutionality. The organization says the law violates the state’s privacy protections as provided for in the state constitution.

Oh, the sweetness of waging war on the unborn in the name of privacy! Would that my privacy mattered in, say, the case of ObamaCare. But I guess then that ‘fairness’ trumps privacy, and I’m a raaaaaacist for daring to raise impertinent issues.

God, please show more mercy on these blighted souls than they show on the unborn.

    I would have asked for justice, but even then He would be showing them more mercy than they show to the unborn.

    Justice would also tend to leave vast swaths of cinders.

    How come we know so much about all these things that are based on the right of privacy?

    If Roe is the law of the land, why can’t the left follow it? It allows the state the right to regulate and ban third trimester abortions.

    Evi L. BLoggerlady, the third trimester begins at 28 weeks, not 20 weeks.

    FYI, Roe permits states to ban *elective* abortion at any point after the 23rd week of gestation, which is generally considered the earliest gestational age at which a fetus might survive outside the womb. Most states have done this. The Georgia law violated Roe because it banned abortions three weeks earlier than Roe allows.

    Murdering children in a “clinic” with medical instruments is good but murdering children in school with firearms is bad?

    Both actions are a “choice.” Isn’t “choice” supposed to be all that matters to leftards?

    In cases of this nature the concept of “privacy” seems to have expanded to include the desire of abortionists for income.

    There is far more explicit language in the Constitution allowing me to have a full-auto gun equivalent to what an infantry soldier carries than there is allowing abortion.

    So you support restricting or banning abortion to “protect” the “unborn,” but you oppose restricting gun ownership or banning specific categories of guns to protect the born? Also, the Constitution says nothing about an individual right to own guns, just as it says nothing about an individual right to privacy. The Supreme Court has ruled that individuals have the right to own guns, just as it’s decided that individuals have the right to privacy. Exactly the same. No difference.

    Your equivalency works only if guns==murder. But that’s like saying cars==murder.

    The right to own guns is Constitutional, and existed when the Bill of Rights was ratified. The SCOTUS didn’t ‘rule’ the 2ndA itself, rather, cases attempting to restrict it.

    Alas, that’s just what they are going to get too. The book of Revelation tells a pretty hard story of what is coming in the near future. Justice is exactly what they are going to get and they will see as much mercy as they allowed those children they dissect in the womb.

    Another thing these people make clear. To them the constitution is a suicide pact. The ACLU is an unamerican subversive organization.

    It’s that O-5 lobotomy I told you about in an earlier thread. It makes minor cognitive tasks more major.

    That well regulated Militia is made up of individuals and each of them were expected to posses the arms required for Militia service. What is not widelty realized is that every able bodied male from 18 to 47 is liable to such service under Federal law, and it is often even longer under state law. In Ohio it is 18 to 67.

    The authorities can knock on your door and tell you when and where to report if you are needed.
