a step in the right direction

My husband share this news article with me, and I thought I'd share it with you. The Supreme Court passed the law to ban partial birth abortions. Although the article is clear that the number of abortions performed will not decrease because they are still allowed to use an alternative form of an abortion which is actually more common, it's still a step in the right direction. At least someone is taking a stand for the lives of babies. I am proud of whoever wrote that article because it actually explains what the abortions do to the babies... "The procedure at issue involves partially removing the fetus intact from a woman's uterus, then crushing or cutting its skull to complete the abortion. " "the law will not reduce the number of abortions performed because an alternate method — dismembering the fetus in the uterus — is available and, indeed, much more common." If only they would replace the word Fetus with baby. As I said, it's a step in the right direction.

:'( I look at my baby boy and think about how many like him, just a few weeks younger, were dismembered or had their heads crushed just as they were about to be born... it makes me cry.
