A little over a year ago I posted about this -- the Supreme Court rulings on partial birth abortion. About a week ago, I did a meme about the books I have or haven't read. With the election fast approaching, there are a few things everyone should have read looking ahead to who will have the opportunity to nominate the next few justices to the Court:
2000 Supreme Court ruling on Partial Birth Abortion, aka Stenberg v. Carhart
Partial Birth Abortion Ban Act of 2003
As I said then, I'll say again: Strong warnings apply. Sit down. Hug your kids and be prepared to be nauseated.
And, when you're through with reading those, try reading:
PASTORAL CONSTITUTION ON THE CHURCH IN THE MODERN WORLD
GAUDIUM ET SPES
PROMULGATED BY HIS HOLINESS, POPE PAUL VI ON DECEMBER 7, 1965
that helps illustrate how abortion is intrinsically evil and tempers the other social and cultural issues of the day in light of the right to life. Then go read about the Born Alive Infant Protection Act that Senator Obaalma doesn't support, nor does he seem to really have any grasp on what the *&$$ it is he is against or what the legislation is about. (You can read about this at Kit's too)
And, if you still haven't had enough, go read Gianna Jessen's story.
