Needs More Horror!

(ht ABL)

Arizona is pushing it even further:

Personally I’d like to make a law that mandates a woman watch an abortion being performed prior to having a “surgical  procedure”. If it’s not a life it shouldn’t matter, if it doesn’t harm a woman then she shouldn’t care, and don’t we want more transparency and education in the medical profession anyway? We demand it everywhere else.

Until the dead child can tell me that she/he does not feel any pain – I have no intentions of clearing the conscience of the living – I will be voting YES.

That’s Terri Proud, a state legislator (and, mystifyingly, a woman) in Arizona, talking about laws she’d like to have. Actual laws.

These people won’t be happy until women have to hunt down and murder a living child to prove that they really want a legal, constitutionally guaranteed medical procedure.

    Watching surgical procedures is torture. I had to watch a video before my wisdom teeth were pulled out and it was horrifying. This proposal is absolutely hateful.

    “Until the dead child can tell me that she/he does not feel any pain…”
    Of course.
    It’s not a child. It’s not a baby. It’s a fetus- a collection of pre-’life’-cells that looks the same in a chicken as it does in a human. A fetus is an ‘it’, a child is a he or she.
