Pro-Choice Cause Finally Scores A Few Victories

This has been a rough year for reproductive rights in this country, and anti-choice legislators around the country won't be letting up anytime soon. But there have been at least a few pro-choice victories lately, as Rachel Maddow noted last night on MSNBC. A jury has found a North Carolina anti-choice leader guilty of stalking abortion providers in the state, and the man is now forbidden from, among other things, publishing any more "Wanted" signs. Also, in Topeka, Kansas, a federal judge blocked Sam Brownback from instituting new regulations that nearly shut down every abortion provider in the state. Also struck down was South Dakota's law that would've required a woman seeking an abortion to wait three days and be forced to sit through a lecture by an anti-abortion activist. This brought scorn from the judge who said forcing a woman to divulge to a stranger that's she's chosen to undergo an abortion humiliates and degrades her as it suggests she hasn't thought it through, but has made the wrong decision.

Where are all the anti-abortion activists after the child is born? Oh, that's right, once they've forced a woman to go through with the unwanted pregnancy, they move from the anti-choice demonstrations to the teabagger rallies where they bitch about their taxes helping pay for unwanted kids and single parents. These people are the worst representation of Christianity ever, and they should be ashamed of themselves.
