Things are heating up on the abortion front, but the battle is internecine:
In a highly visible rift in the anti-abortion movement, a coalition of evangelical Protestant and Roman Catholic groups is attacking a longtime ally, Focus on the Family founder James C. Dobson.
Using rhetoric that they have reserved in the past for abortion clinics, some of the coalition's leaders accuse Dobson and other national antiabortion leaders of building an "industry" around relentless fundraising and misleading information.
At the center of the dispute is the Supreme Court's April 18 decision upholding the Partial-Birth Abortion Ban Act, a federal law against a procedure in which a doctor partially delivers a late-term fetus before crushing its skull.
While I would love to see abortion outlawed and Roe v. Wade overturned (in part because it's simply a horrible decision constitutionally), I don't believe that abortion will ever be universally outlawed in the US. The best we can hope for are incremental changes that limit abortion, and perhaps outlaw it in some states.
Lest we forget what all this is about, the article tells us plainly what we're dealing with here:
...a procedure in which a doctor partially delivers a late-term fetus before crushing its skull...
Minnery added. "The old procedure, which is still legal, involves using forceps to pull the baby apart in utero..."
Lord, forgive us for doing this to our nation's children.
