Blame the pre-teens.
I haven't been keeping track of the entire abortion thead, so I don't know if types of abortions were mentioned, this thread is about one particualr method conservatives managed to ban through legislation, only becuase they're ignorant, self-rightous, ego-inflated bigots.The ones who fought for this ban, in particular.
Partial birth abortion is administed in the third trimester of the pregnancy, I think, where the fetus is pretty far developed. The doctor delivers the fetus/baby partway, untill only the head is left in the womb, take am instument, reaches in, puctures the head of the fetus/baby, drain the brain, and delievers the now-dead baby. Brutal no? At first glance, this type of abortion should be banned beucase of brutality, but did these polititions know how or more importantly why this is done? Like these politicians had the experience and knoweldge of doctors to be making such decisions.
Initially this procedure is done when there is something wrong with the fetus/baby (a condition I don't remember the name to) or with the mother, and their lives are in danger. The mother' or the baby/fetus will be compromised. It's a last minute, desperate procedure, which is dangerous to administer itself becuase it's so late in the pregnancy. The decision essentially comes down to who gets to live, and politicians don't have the right to decide that.
