Of course it will be difficult

HT: The Corner The Guardian | Trust sued over twin born after abortion:
Stacy Dow had a termination at six weeks at Perth Royal infirmary after she found out she was pregnant with twins when she was 16. But 27 weeks later she discovered she was still carrying one of the twins.

"'I still don't know if, or what, I am going to tell Jayde when the time comes,' she added. 'Maybe when she is nine or 10 I will sit her down and explain it to her. I just hope that she understands what happened and why I did it. Of course it will be much harder to explain to her that she had a twin.' "

Yes, I would imagine that it would be difficult to explain. "You see, dear, I didn't want to have a baby, much less two. So I paid to have you and your sister killed. Unfortunately, you survived. You DO understand, dear?"

When God said that the sins of the parents are passed down to the seventh generation, He wasn't being vindictive or cruel.

He was just explaining how sin works.

The only legitimate grounds this woman should have for a lawsuit is that the doctor failed to determine that an abortion was indicated in her case. After all, if she really needed and abortion, she'd have still needed one after she found out one twin survived, and she'd have snuffed the second one, too.

Clearly she had a change of heart, or she would have snuffed the other one.

Philosophically, I'm pro-choice - but man, this case makes it tough. (it's a rather qualified pro-choice, though - if a woman is in the position to make that choice, she's obviously exersized poor judgement)

That's the problem with saying you're "pro-choice" - knowing that the "choice" is a dead baby. No wonder the "pro-choice" camp falls all over itself trying to deny the humanity of the little one.

They should just be honest and admit that they think a mother has the right to kill her children. Where are the "Free Susan Smith" bumper stickers?

Yikes - I forgot to thank you for the comment, Dan. One other thing - if the woman "needing" an abortion has exercised such poor judgement, what does that say about her ability to "choose" wisely?
