Trent Lott: Womb Invader
Tuesday’s stunning victories for Republicans in the House and Senate are good news for pro-family issues.
The new Senate Majority Leader, Trent Lott of Mississippi, says with Republicans now in control of the White House and both houses of Congress, the logjam of bills is going to be broken. Lott says not only will important legislation dealing with homeland security and the economy be moved along quickly, but also a key issue of importance to Christians: a ban on partial-birth abortion.
“We will move the partial-birth abortion bill through [the Senate],” Lott says. “The House did it this year — [but] once again, [outgoing Majority Leader] Tom Daschle would not call it up [in the Senate].
“I will call it up, we will pass it, and the president will sign it. I’m making that commitment — you can write it down.”
Why this is of any concern to Lott eludes me. When Trent can have a baby, then he can talk. Until that time, he should leave it in the hands of the woman and her doctor.
And, as if that wasn’t chilly enough, the Republicans drive to interfere with a woman’s right to choose may lead to the birth of more horribly disfigured children like this one.
