SAN DIEGO, August 13 /Christian Newswire/ -- Most will hail the ban on Partial Birth abortion which could potentially save thousands of pre-born children from having their brains sucked out and their skulls crushed; but sadly the weakness in the law is revealing itself in glaring brutality.
In a startling article in the Boston Globe entitled, 'Shots assist in aborting fetuses' it explains how "In response to the Supreme Court decision upholding the Partial-Birth Abortion Ban Act, many abortion providers in Boston and around the country have adopted a defensive tactic. To avoid any chance of partially delivering a live fetus, they are injecting fetuses with lethal drugs before procedures."
The article continued by saying, "In Boston, three major Harvard-affiliated hospitals -- Massachusetts General, Brigham and Women's, and Beth Israel Deaconess -- have responded to the ban by making the injections the new standard operating procedure for abortions beginning at around 20 weeks' gestation, said Dr. Michael F. Greene, director of obstetrics at Mass. General."
Phil Magnan, President of Biblical Family Advocates responded by saying, "American medicine has reached a new low in which once again doctors are utilizing their God given skills to take the life of a small child. What should always give us pause is the fact that at one end of the hospital they are fighting to save a small 20 week preemie baby from dying, offering them excellent lifesaving procedures; and yet at the other end of the hospital they are giving children lethal doses of drugs to kill them in an attempt to shield themselves from botched abortions. Their actions are screaming medical hypocrisy."
Magnan continued, "The majority of Americans signed onto the partial birth abortion ban because we at least had a collective agreement that pre born children should not be killed, especially when they can survive outside of the womb. But it is apparent that this is a weak position; so it has become even clearer that unless this country passes an outright ban on abortion, we will not save one human life from being callously thrown into the bloody trash heap of 'choice'.
It is truly reprehensible that doctors will continue to skirt the intent of the law because they lack the compassion and moral capacity to protect the very patients they are supposed to care for.
Many of us, who indeed stand for life, continue to wonder when this country will have the kind of compassionate leadership to actually believe that the 13th and 14th amendment of the US Constitution applies to children in the womb and will honor their oath of office by actually enforcing the U.S. Constitution to protect them."
