disservice

By Diogenes (articles ) | Feb 06, 2005

Frances "Killing Me Softly" Kissling notes several major problems with Sen. Brownback's Unborn Child Pain Awareness Act, including the following:

The bill's single-minded focus on the fetus to be aborted is a disservice to other fetuses.

That's a quote.

    They do come up with some good ones! (not even Diogenes could make up stuff as good as this!)

    And this would be a disservice to those fetuses not about to be aborted...how? *scratching head*

    Holy Scripture, both in the Old and New Testament make it very clear that the "pronounced word" is a very powerful thing. Also that the whole nature of "naming" and "recognizing" a thing by that "name" also is powerful with far reaching consequences. Abortion is MURDER Diogenes... That's what it is... Justifying it is insanity.. But allowing REBELS to exist within the Church in an organized fashion... That is even worse.
