Every abortion is wrong, from start to finish

Recent news stories have told us about states passing legislation banning abortions after a certain period of time into a pregnancy. This seems curious to me.

How do they determine when it is OK and when it isn't OK to abort? Why is it OK prior to the six-week mark in North Dakota and not OK after? How are these lines being drawn? Is there some change that occurs in North Dakota babies at six weeks? Is a baby at five weeks and six days fundamentally different from one at six weeks? I don't think so.

What I do think is that such lines are imaginary, arbitrary, capricious and cruel. We have all been at the six-week stage. But luckily we didn't get aborted. But 50 million-plus of our brothers and sisters have not been so lucky.

Adolf Hitler drew a line between Aryans and Jews. On one side you live. On the other side you die.

Don't get me wrong. I am all in favor of anything that impedes abortion. The point is, every abortion is wrong, from start to finish, from beginning to end.
