Life Links 7/25/07

Ryan Anderson in First Things on Amnesty International's continuing bumbles on abortion.
Cox himself wrote that Amnesty International "opposes the specific provisions of the federal law upheld by the U.S. Supreme Court in Gonzales v. Carhart that criminalize doctors who perform particular types of abortions." In other words, according to Amnesty International, when the government of the United States attempts to protect partially born Americans from death at the hands of abortionists, it is violating human rights.....

Amnesty International frequently claims to take "no position as to when life begins." But what reason can they give for taking no position on a question settled long ago by science? Does Amnesty International deny that the entity being "aborted" in partial-birth abortion is a human being? Are those feet the abortionist is holding when he jams a pair of scissors into the base of child's skull anything other than human feet? Is the blood that streams out something other than human blood? That a child in the womb is a living human being is a matter of scientific fact. Does Amnesty International deny it?

The problem with copying and pasting a bunch of pro-choice talking points instead of trying to make an actual argument is sometimes you copy and paste something using a pseudonym and other times you do it when you're using your real name. I wonder if West doesn't use his real name at Daily Kos because of his past comments comparing Planned Parenthood to Wal-Mart.

Here's a Los Angeles Times article entitled, "Democrats shift approach on abortion." On the second page the article even notes:
From a practical standpoint, increasing access to contraception will not eliminate abortion. Roughly half of all women who seek abortion said they were using some form of birth control, albeit inconsistently, the month they conceived. Some of the states, such as California, that have spent the most to improve access to family planning still have among the nation's highest abortion rates.
