A Small Victory for Life!
If courts and doctors acknowledge the life and potential of preborn babies, then the acknowledgment of preborn human rights are not far behind. The uncomfortable reality is that it’s more than just one woman’s choice involved here. There are two individuals involved in abortion, not just one.
Isn’t it ironic that a group calling itself “Planned Parenthood” would so completely deny the rights as well as the responsibilities of parenthood over a child?
Here’s hoping this sentiment continues to spread. This development in child’s rights is long overdue.
|From CRI: South Dakota Doctors Must Inform Patients “Abortion Ends Life”|
|In a key ruling, last week a federal judge upheld a South Dakota law requiring women be told that abortion ends a human life. The ruling came as a result of a lawsuit filed by Planned Parenthood Minnesota, North Dakota and South Dakota to challenge South Dakota’s informed consent law, passed in 2005.U.S. District Judge Karen Schreier decided that in conformance with the law, doctors must disclose “that the abortion will terminate the life of a whole, separate, unique, living human being.” However, Schreier did agree with Planned Parenthood that doctors should not be required to inform women they may suffer from suicidal thoughts or that they have an “existing relationship” with their preborn child.”This is the unraveling of Roe (v. Wade). This is a huge, fatal blow to them,” said Leslee Unruh, founder of the Alpha Center pregnancy counseling center in Sioux Falls.
Planned Parenthood is considering appealing the decision in hopes of preventing doctors from discussing the termination of human life through abortion.
“This is a monumental victory for the pro-life movement and for freedom of medical information,” explained Karen England, executive director of Capitol Resource Institute. “Abortion does end a human life and that undeniable fact will now be shared in South Dakota. Hopefully similar policies will spread throughout the country.”
