Brown takes exception to this exception and says,
Thus it is not a ban, but it does enshrine abortion into the law. Hope it fails to pass. And undoubtedly it will.
When are pro-lifers going to realize that we have to be either against child killing or join the ranks of the pro-choice-to-kill some babies crowd?
Before posting Judy might have want to actually take a look at the Colorado bill before passing judgement. One would hope the leader of a large prolife organization would actually read a bill on abortion before saying that she's hope it fails to pass.
If Brown had read the bill before passing judgement she would have known that it has basically the same exact wording regarding dangers to the mother's life as the South Dakota bill which she favored so heavily.
The Colorado bill says,
(3)(a) A licensed physician who performs a medical procedure designed or intended to prevent the death of a pregnant mother shall not be guilty of violating this section if the physician makes reasonable medical efforts to preserve both the life of the mother and the life of her unborn child in a manner consistent with conventional medical practice.while the South Dakota bill said,
No licensed physician who performs a medical procedure designed or intended to prevent the death of a pregnant mother is guilty of violating section 2 of this Act. However, the physician shall make reasonable medical efforts under the circumstances to preserve both the life of the mother and the life of her unborn child in a manner consistent with conventional medical practice.Open mouth, insert foot. It would really be nice if Brown did a little more than just insult the legislative efforts of other prolifers.
She's right about the bill not passing though. The bill won't pass. But not because of the language of its life of the mother exception but because the Colorado legislature has Democratic majorities in both chambers and has a pro-choice governor.
UPDATE:Judy Brown has responded to a comment I left at her blog. Her response - "Frst of all, I made no mention of the Colorado bill, but have read it and agree with you."
What??? You "made no mention" of the bill the entire second half of your post was about?
