A note on the Amazon ads: I've chosen to display current events titles in the Amazon box. Unfortunately, Amazon appears to promote a disproportionate number of angry-left books. I have no power over it at this time. Rest assured, I'm still a conservative.

Good point: "Best of the Web Today" notes yesterday's vote in the House to approve the Unborn Victims of Violence Act (aka Laci and Conner's law). The law would recognize that an attack on a pregnant woman actually affects two individuals -- the woman and her child.

Pro-abortion zealots (their position on laws like this one put to the lie that they are "pro-choice" -- after all, the woman in question here has chosen to have the child) oppose the law because they feel that recognizing that there is a fetus -- and that it can be harmed separate from the woman -- is an attack on abortion rights.



Rep. Nita Lowey, D-N.Y., said it would be the first time in federal law that a fetus would be recognized as having the same rights as the born. The bill "is not about shielding pregnant women," she said. "It is and has always been about undermining freedom of choice."

The House, said Kate Michelman, president of NARAL Pro-Choice America, was "taking advantage of tragedy to promote the far-right agenda of trying to rob women of their right to choose."

Nita Lowey and Kate Michelman, standing tall for a murderer's right to choose. And in truth, they are the ones undermining the intellectual case for abortion rights. The pro-life argument has always been that abortion is murder; Lowey and Michelman's view is that murder is abortion.


Exactly.
