Haven [the group in question] not only caters to women seeking late-term abortions, but also caters to underage girls seeking these late-term abortions. The article frankly admitted thus:
This year, Haven members have opened their homes to 125 of them (including a 10-year-old).
For emphasis: a ten-year-old.
Yes, Leon, for emphasis: A ten-year old.
Leon, I was going to quote lots of comments (there were 283 of them) following your RedState Diary, but I was so enamoured of your incorrect use of the word "thus" that I stopped myself. You are the most literate of RedStaters, and I feel it would be cruel to quote your peers.
Leon, you are a miracle of misplaced outrage. Horrible, horrible, most horrible, for New Yorkers (gasp!) to help a 10-year-old child 24-weeks-pregnant, hoping for sympathetic arms.
The fact is, Leon, dearest, you don't know this child, and neither do I. Given this, rather than passing universal DON'T YOU DARE WITHOUT PARENTAL CONSENT laws about minors and abortion, Leon, perhaps . . . this is just a "perhaps" . . . it's possible that the horrors experienced by 24-week-pregnant 10-year-old children can't be universilized into Federal Law.
It's just barely possible that you don't know this ten-year-old's story. It's just barely possible that she had good reasons to run.
You jackaninny. You lame excuse for a cerebral cortex on lunch-break. You intellectual gerbil. Give us a hug.
