Forgive me for saying so, but it’s like we’re talking about pigs here. Instead of killing a child by stopping his or her heart from beating, we assuage our consciences with stopping a “fetal heart” and inducing labor to deliver the then-lifeless “fetus.”

Can the pursuit of death yield worse results?

As if these things weren’t repugnant enough, literally describes their intervention to stop a “fetal heart beat” as both “compassionate” and a “much needed service.”

There is nothing compassionate about killing another human being in cold blood (nor is such killing a “much needed service”). Instead, such mad ramblings are proof anew that the pursuit of death warps the mind and the heart until it eventually consumes those bent on growing rich via the death of the unborn.
