This is an interesting turn on injury or death to the unborn…read on from FoxNews.com:
‘Oklahoma state lawmakers passed the Use of Force for the Protection of the Unborn Act this week and if the Senate approves it in a final vote, as expected, it will be sent to the governor’s desk. This bill allows pregnant women to use deadly force to protect their unborn children.’
The article goes on to say – ‘Pregnant women who refuse to abort their child are too often attacked by their partner in an effort to force a miscarriage,” said state Rep. Mike Thompson, who co-authored the bill after Americans United for Life asked him. “Women put in this position should have the legal right to defend themselves, with lethal force if necessary.”
The bill came about after a Michigan woman who was carrying quads stabbed and killed her boyfriend after he hit her in the stomach. The woman lost the babies and was convicted of manslaughter.
“Unfortunately, the unborn child is often the primary target of domestic violence,” State Senator Glenn Coffee said in a statement. “Domestic violence has been acknowledged as a primary cause of stillbirths and miscarriages.”
And then there’s Kathleen Sebelius…again.
From the AP: Kansas Gov. Kathleen Sebelius stepped around potential land mines on abortion and her own tax errors Thursday as she testified at a hearing en route to her expected confirmation as health and human services secretary….Sebelius was not asked any questions about abortion, an issue that’s caused loud complaints from conservative groups angered about her vetoes of some abortion restrictions and the presence of a prominent abortion doctor, Dr. Tiller, at a reception at the governor’s residence.
Nor was Sebelius asked about what she has called “unintentional errors” related to charitable deductions, mortgage interest and business expenses on her most recent tax returns. She has paid nearly $8,000 in taxes and penalties.
Sebelius had the backing of both of Kansas’ Republican senators, Pat Roberts and Sam Brownback – the latter a strong anti-abortion figure – and no senator raised abortion on Thursday or during a hearing Tuesday before the Senate Health, Education, Labor and Pensions Committee.
How can any republican back an extreme EMILY’s List Democrat? Can you say ‘personal gain’?
