As I explained several times on my blog, abortion and euthanasia are closely related. Both abortion and euthanasia involve a woman deciding about her own body, but abortion also involves a women deciding about the body of the fetus. So always legalize euthanasia first.
How else do you explain this?
Last week in Texas, a Republican lawmaker proposed an amendment so outrageous, that even some of his own GOP colleagues were repulsed. Andrea Grimes, with RH Reality, reports:.
Rep. Matt Schaefer (R-Tyler) put forward an amendment that would make it illegal to terminate a pregnancy after 20 weeks, even if a fetus “has a severe and irreversible abnormality,” effectively forcing families with wanted, but unsustainable pregnancies to carry to term at the behest of the state and against the advice of their doctors or their own wishes.
What would cause a lawmaker to want the government to inflict more emotional pain onto an already grieving family, in addition to adding a major health risk to the mother? Does he not realize a woman can easily die of sepsis by carrying a nonviable fetus?
Carry your dead baby to term yourself, Mr Schaefer. You bloody lunatic.
