I’ll warn you up-front: this is going to be long, and if you’re given to being easily offended: offensive.
Last night the Texas Senate passed HB 2, a bill awaiting Governor Perry’s signature that will force all abortion facilities to adhere to ambulatory surgical center standards, outlaw abortions past 20 weeks and require providers to have privileges at a local hospital. You may read the entire bill for yourself here.
I generally say little about the abortion debate publicly, because in my mind it is a foregone conclusion that it is the most heinous act our society allows and participates in. I fully understand the arguments of the other side, but I cannot for a moment conceive how they can honestly argue for such monstrous behavior. There I go with the offense already.
