When abortion is tolerated by us

Yep, you read that correctly. When abortion is tolerated by us, the people of the pro-life movement. When is that, you might ask! Well, let me tell you. When certain pro-life groups support and promote legislation such as the Child Interstate Abortion Notification Act (CIANA) which makes it a crime to transport a minor across state lines for an abortion without her parents' permission.

Pro-life apologists for the bill claim it is a recognition of parental rights. They say nobody should be able to take a minor across state lines for an abortion if the parents are not aware that the abortion is going to occur. I guess that means that if the parents do the driving or OK the third party to do the driving, everything is fine.

So, if I get this right, a parent has to approve before their own child gets an abortion out of state, but if the kid wants an abortion in state, that is a different matter.

This is so confusing because I always thought that pro-lifers were dedicated to ending the killing, not making sure that grandparents were in sync with aborting a baby before the killing is done.

There is something wrong with this picture!
