04/18 Morning Report

The “partial birth abortion” ban has been up held. And, I have to admit I am excited to see that type of ruling come from SCOTUS. Of course, the liberals are all lining up with the usual rhetoric. It’s “amazing” how the media all use the same quotes from liberal sources, don’t you think? The BBC, MSNBC, and the New York Times (paraphrasing), all used the same quotes like:

Ginsberg says: “In candour, the Partial Birth Abortion Act and the court’s defence of it cannot be understood as anything other than an effort to chip away at a right declared again and again by this court – and with increasing comprehension of its centrality to women’s lives,” she said.

“This ruling flies in the face of 30 years of Supreme Court precedent and the best interest of women’s health and safety,” said Eve Gartner of Planned Parenthood Federation of America.

No real surprises in their rhetoric. Many liberals are still very much in denial of the life of a “fetus”…uumm…baby…sorry got caught up that ridiculous PC stuff.

But, the important question is what is going to change? In other words, will this ruling really make a difference? Before you get mad at me for that thought, give it some serious consideration. You should also probably go read this. According to Mark Crutcher, president of Life Dynamics:

“We need to temper our excitement over something like this by the fact that this ban won’t save one single baby,” the pro-lifer cautions. “Every baby that would have been killed with a partial-birth abortion or a D&X, whichever you want to call it, will simply be killed with a D&E or hysterotomy or some other abortion method.”

That is a chilling perspective from someone on the Pro-Life side of things. Despite the legal victory, and the possibility it may signal a change, Clutcher’s peek behind the curtain indicates there isn’t may not be much real dispelling of the darkness, yet.
(…hearts have to change, not just laws…and, so far, we are the same self-centered culture we were before the ruling…)

Meanwhile, still on the subject of “not what it seems”, there was this BBC report that Ethanol cars may not be healthier. Can I be surprised? If I use an ethanol mixture then my gas mileage goes WAY down. Should I be surprised that it has other health problems?

A computer model set up to simulate air quality in 2020 found that in some areas ozone levels would increase if all cars were run on bioethanol.

Of course, this is just a continuation of the same statements made back in January of 2006.

(…ranks up there with Al Gore’s electric bill…doesn’t it…a little hypocrisy…mix in good PR…say…sounds like what the left says about Bush…doesn’t it?…hhhmmmm…)
