Boston Globe on"doctor work arounds" regarding partial birth abortions.
In response to the Supreme Court decision upholding the Partial-Birth Abortion Ban Act, many abortion providers in Boston and around the country have adopted a defensive tactic. To avoid any chance of partially delivering a live fetus, they are injecting fetuses with lethal drugs before procedures.
…The injections are generally done in abortions after 18 or 20 weeks gestation. (Massachusetts bans virtually all abortions at and beyond the 24th week, except to protect the life or health of the mother.) Medical staff inject either the heart drug digoxin or potassium chloride, a potentially poisonous salt also used in state executions.
NRO has an email from a lawyer who does criminal trails and is familiar with potassium chloride.
Wowsa. I have done some litigation in the area of lethal injection, and potassium chloride is typically the third drug used in the "three drug cocktail" most states use when they execution someone. It is a painful, painful drug that stops the heart. To mitigate that pain for prisoners, states give them sodium thiopental, which is a short-acting barbituate, then pancuronium bromide, which acts as a paralyzing agent, THEN they give the potassium chloride. It would be extremely painful for a prisoner to have an injection of potassium chloride alone. It stuns me that that’s what they’re using to kill these babies in utero.
This just shows how the creativity of the Culture of Death is of course all ordered towards death.
If only we had an appeals process for the unborn, especially one that lasted at least nine months.
This also shows the total inconsistencies of our laws since the method of how a baby was killed was outlawed, but another and even more painful method remains legal.
