We established some time ago that whether or not a child is wanted is what determines whether what a woman is carrying in her womb is or is not human. Warm fuzzy feeling = human. Not warm fuzzy = not human. Recently, it was made clear that the sex of the child carried is one of the sub-criteria that determines humanity. Such things would be laughable if the end result of this wasn't so disastrous for the child being chopped to pieces and sucked into the garbage. After all, as a juror I would have to determine guilt beyond a shadow of a doubt in order to convict. No pro-abort can prove that what is being aborted is not a human being - and the conviction of not human carries the death penalty. But it's real scary to not be a part of the "I'm scared to step out 'cause choice sounds so good" crowd, so many will still go galloping after deadly absurdity. You don't need real facts in order to hold a position - just ask Al Gore.
But sometimes the mental twistedness of "choice" reaches new heights, as it did in Spain recently. Try to kill a child, manage to NOT chop it into pieces and suck it out, child gets born, and now the abortionist gets socked with a lawsuit. Poor guy. He thought he killed the damned thing. And there it is, somehow having morphed into a human being - the one who lived, er, got away. And I assume that their socialized medicine will also pay for the mental health care the accidentally-alive child will need when they get old enough to find all this out.
The consequences of socialist medicine are rearing their ugly head in Spain. Spain recently fully legalized abortion in 2010 under a socialist government. Shortly thereafter, a Spanish woman, 7 weeks pregnant, decided to have a “vacuum aspiration” abortion, a surgical procedure where the baby is literally sucked up out of the womb into a jar. The procedure went well according to the surgeon, who even had the patient come back for a follow-up ultra-sound two weeks later and confirmed the “success” of the surgery.
Only one problem: the patient felt pregnancy symptoms 3 month later and was quite surprised to hear from her OBGYN that she was 5 months pregnant.
The extremely generous and competent abortion clinic decided to reimburse its patient for the failed surgery and graciously offered another abortion free of charge -- past the 22-week legal limit. The patient decided to keep the child instead, and sued the clinic.
This week, the Spanish legal system awarded the patient 150,000 Euros in moral damages, and sentenced the clinic to pay her a monthly 1,000 Euros child support for helping raise the child. Where is the father? Who knows? But, of course, the clinic is paid by the state, not by the patient. Welcome to the world of socialized, liberal medicine, where you – the taxpayer -- can now be forced to pay full alimony, not for a doctor killing a patient, but for failing to kill an unborn child.Um, would somebody please remind me why I'm an evil conservative because I oppose this?
