Louisiana defends Life

Common Sense

I was talking with someone who described themselves as "pro-choice." More fittingly, however, they were "pro-popular." This particular person's moral dip-stick was nearly bone dry. They presumably held this opinion because it is the dominant theme in the secular media and culture. On a tangent, I find it amusing how the pop-culture preaches individuality and being your own person, but at the same time everyone has to be the same- everyone is the same collective MTV, GAP, etc. Poster-child.

Anyway, we were talking about the bill in South Dakota. The knee-jerk reaction was "it's too extreme". To which the response came, "how? To say that life begins at conception and demands protection under the law, that is common sense." The conclusion for this person was, "Well, I don't agree that babies should be protected under law, but I respect this law in South Dakota because at least it is consistent."

From the story in Louisiana, it seems that other people want consistency and common sense. If pro-life legislatures and lobbyist hold that life begins at conception and is sacred, how can they at the same breath say certain babies excluded or are an exception? It seems a revolution of common sense is about to sweep the nation.

BATON ROUGE, La. The Senate today approved a strict ban on abortion for Louisiana, rejecting a move to add any exceptions except to save the life of the mother.
