Re: “N.C. eugenics survivors seek justice

"I personally would prefer we go back even further, to the days when even the very idea of performing an abortion would sicken and horrify all but the most depraved minds in our society"

You are woefully misinformed. Since the beginning of time, women have known how to prevent themselves from having babies. It didn't become a political issue until the past couple centuries, but abortion was a widely accepted and common activity. Prior to our focus on the fetus (which was brought on by the development of sonogram technology), it was actually the mother who was in control of the situation and who came first. She wasn't viewed merely as a vessel for the conjoining of egg and sperm--she was a conscious, thinking being in possession of her body and capable of deciding how to handle a pregnancy.

Also, this article is not about abortion. This article is about citizens of our country (and in some cases minors) having a life-impacting surgery performed upon them unlawfully, always without their consent and often without their knowledge. Take your "save them babies" talk elsewhere. I'm not sure if you're aware, but our planet is horrifically overpopulated, and it sure ain't getting better anytime soon. What will you tell a pregnant woman whose baby will have no access to clean water?

"But in the case of abortion, the woman is making life and death decisions for another human being"

I wonder what your stance on the death penalty is, Brent.
