On Abortion

It is my understanding that American progressives (and liberals) have it as one of their highest ideals to fight for the interests of the most marginalized and downtrodden of groups. For that reason they fight for the right for women to abort their unborn babies without fear of legal reprisal by governments. I support this fight. However, there is another group more marginalized and downtrodden than women affected by abortion: their unborn babies. Why are progressives fighting for the interests of the stronger and more powerful group of the two, women verses unborn babies? Which group is more disadvantaged in this fight, desperately needing a champion to save them? It makes no goddamned sense. And that’s today’s two cents.

I just never could understand why people have to use the power of the state against the woman and her doctor in a private medical matter. I understand they believe a murder would be committed, the question, which the Supreme Court avoided, is when is Constitutional protection extended to Humans? I think it is before birth, but when? With medical technology progressing, will it go to the point of a few days after conception?I don’t think it’s right to use the State to FORCE women to go through pregnancy, women, even today, die during childbirth. Transoption, anyone? Sci-Fi reference there!
