Preventing Abortion?

Kerry Catholics claim that none of the pro-life legislation passed by the GOP Congress and signed into law by President Bush (e.g. PBA ban, UVVA) has nor will prevent any abortions. I have not seen specific data EITHER way, but it seems obvious to me that in time this legislation WILL have an affect on the abortion rate. And, after reading the story below and thinking about the PBA ban not defended in court by or enforced by a Kerry Justice Department, then surely it can be said that electing Kerry to the White House will ensure abortions like this will continue.

Nurse Brenda Pratt Shafer was "pro-choice" when her agency assigned her to work at an Ohio abortion clinic in 1993. What she saw shocked her to the core.

"I stood at the doctor's side and watched him perform a partial-birth abortion on a woman who was six months pregnant," Shafer testified in 1995. "The baby's heartbeat was clearly visible on the ultrasound screen. The doctor delivered the baby's body and arms, everything but his little head. The baby's body was moving. His little fingers were clasping together. He was kicking his feet. The doctor took a pair of scissors and inserted them into the back of the baby's head, and the baby's arms jerked out in a flinch, a startle reaction, like a baby does when he thinks that he might fall. Then the doctor opened the scissors up. Then he stuck the high-powered suction tube into the hole and sucked the baby's brains out. Now the baby was completely limp."

The nurse concluded, "I never went back to the clinic. But I am still haunted by the face of that little boy. It was the most perfect, angelic face I have ever seen." (Edwards Falls Deaf..., Douglas Johnson, National Review Online, 29 Jul 04)
