    "Abortion restrictions failing this year in court challenges"

    State legislatures trying to curtail abortions have suffered a 0-for-8 losing streak after court challenges to their new laws this year.


    You don't say?

    You don't suppose it's because they are UN-Constitutional?

    This "playbook" has a record of 0-8 right now.

    Any sports coach with a record that bad would have been fired already. ;-)

    @Chris -- When you get pregnant yourself, THEN you'll have a right to make flippant comments about wars on women. Until then, you don't.

    You are, of course, speaking about Savita Halappanavar, who died in Ireland because they denied her a termination of her pregnancy, eve though the fetus ha already self-terminated.

    There is no "pro-abortion lobby." Nobody is advocating for people to have abortions the advocacy is to allow women to control their own bodies and destines, and keep the government out of their uteri. There is no war on children. There is no "hate against unborn children". And I'd be curious to know why you value a parasitic life form that isn't a person or a child (and wouldn't be one until the pregnancy that is building the body is completed and the living human spirit joins the body at birth) over a living, breathing human being -- the pregnant woman.


    Advocate against abortion all you want -- I do that too -- but get your facts and terminology right. AND don't try to force your position on others. Persuade. Don't try to compel.

    Reasonable Justices and woman's rights are at the forefront.

    My question is how long the pro-abortion lobby, particularly within the Democratic Party, will continue their war on children?

    They've been at it for at least 50 years now and have gotten very good at camouflaging their campaign of hate against unborn children during that entire time.

    I can't think of a greater war on women than the decision to end the life of a female without her consent.
