…Death-Penalty States Return to Electric Chair and Hanging.”
As a death penalty opponent, I wouldn’t find much to celebrate in that headline. Similarly, as an abortion opponent, I’m not particularly excited that the partial-birth abortion ban was upheld. I understand the propaganda value of publicizing the gruesomeness of this form of abortion, but all the law means is that people wishing to do abortions past 20 weeks will have to use a different gruesome method. For this, years of effort have been spent?
