"I am pro-life. Hearing the strong heartbeat of my unborn daughter 14 years ago at 13 weeks gestation had a profound effect on me and my beliefs. The life of every human being is precious. We must work to reduce abortions in New Jersey through laws such as parental notification, a 24-hour waiting period and a ban on partial-birth abortion."

Go ahead and deny abortions. That's what dumpsters are for.

IF this happened--and I place no credibility in a site that pretends abortion rights are racist--then they should have been reprimanded for disposal of medical waste in that manner, IF it was illegal in that time and locale.

They're excellent candidates to emulate the Ilse Koch solution: make lampshades out of them.

"If this happened"? What a surprise: another "if I don't see it on a pro-choice site, I won't believe it" lame excuse.

"JUSTICE REHNQUIST, Circuit Justice. April 11, 1984

Appellants ask that I stay an order of the California Court of Appeals, Second Appellate District, which determines, under state law, the disposition of some 16,000 aborted fetuses presently in the custody of the Los Angeles County District Attorney."

Only if you are making lampshades for christmas tree lights. How big do you think a first-trimester fetus is?

As I said, I it happened--something I won't take on the basis of the idiotic site you linked to. If you have an objective source, great. And since it obviously has been taken care of, what's the point?

It was the legal actions of pro-lifers that resulted in states passing laws like the one in Minnesota, which ensures
that the bodies of aborted babies be buried, cremated or otherwise disposed of in a sanitary and dignified manner. Before laws like these, Big Abortion -- spiritual kin to Ilse Koch -- considered the babies "medical waste" and had nary a qualm about tossing them in dumpsters or whatever receptacle was handy.

Yeah. We have pet cemeteries too. If you morons took half your energy to help living, born children, there would be a lot better conditions in this world. But no, you worry about tiny corpses. That's because you don't give a damn about anything but fetuses and punishing women who have sex.

Congratulations. You've put more pro-choice red herrings into a few bromide-surfeited sentences than NARAL usually crams into an entire press release.

Better you should stop snacking on the red herrings and write a check to Planned Parenthood, who's having an awfully tough time staying solvent on the taxpayers' annual pittance of $349.6 million. Planned Parenthood's empire continues to shrink; 14 clinics have closed or have announced closings this year alone, bewailing a lack of public and private funding. Pro-life pregnancy resource centers (2,300 nationwide, many more than PP abortuaries) continue to thrive on volunteers' donations of money and time; 29 of every 30 people working at pregnancy centers are volunteers.

Pro-choicers, who spend endless hours spouting slogans on Topix, should start putting their time and money where their mouths are.

PP is a medical facility; many facilities are having a hard time. Your pregnancy centers just need a bible and an alcoholic hausfrau willing to pummel a woman with crap until they say they won't abort. Your only overhead is rent, lights, and cheap gin.

You people do NOTHING for the woman once she has given birth. Yo9u play on her emotions to achieve your end and she is stuck with a kid for 18+ years. How frigging christian. I bet each case gets you so aroused you let your husband get to second base.

And he is running for governor? Goodbye many nurses (as if there are enough!), teachers, day care workers and servers in restaurants.
