WHICH SUGGESTS A COMPROMISE...:

Abortion’s New Battle Lines (CHARLES M. BLOW, 5/01/10, NY Times)

While we’ve been distracted by Tea Party antics, the government’s efforts to sack Goldman Sachs and the tawdry drama of John Edwards and his baby’s mama, a rash of states has rushed to restrict access to abortion. [...]

It is a striking series of laws, enacted mostly by men, that seek legal control over women’s bodies. I happen to agree with Representative Janet Long of Florida, who said on Friday that you should “stand down if you don’t have ovaries.”


...using this standard we could only ban the abortion of babies with penises, since, obviously, women out not have control over them.
