As Christy Lee Parker of Mad World News points out: The logic in the ‘case’ she presented has some … flaws. (Following block quotes are from that original piece.)
“The kinds of cases that fall at the end of pregnancy are often the most heartbreaking, painful decisions for families to make. I have met with women who have, toward the end of their pregnancy, get the worst news one could get that their health is in jeopardy if they continue to carry to term …”
First, late-term abortions are sometimes referred to as post-viability abortions. That’s important because viability means the fetus is able to live outside the womb. So, at any time after 24 weeks gestation, which is considered the “point of viability,” a baby can be delivered to save the mother while also allowing the child a chance to live. During a late-term abortion, the child is still delivered, only it’s delivered dead rather than alive after the infant has been killed.
As a nurse, I want to be absolutely clear: If a mother’s life is in danger at any time after 24 weeks, let alone in the 9th month, the infant can be delivered via C-section to save the mother. The infant is given a chance at life. It does not need to be killed to save the mother. Never in the 9th month would that ever be a thought for most healthcare professionals. That’s not healthcare. That’s murder. But, there’s more.
As though that wouldn’t be enough to discount her argument for partial-birth abortion by itself.
In fact, in partial-birth abortions, the baby is delivered breech, which is difficult, painful, and puts the mother’s life at risk. So, when you hear that liberal talking point, where they like to ask, “What if the mother finds out that she could die during childbirth?” it’s important to know that a post-viability abortion isn’t going to prevent birth. In fact, birth is in the name — partial birth abortion. Only a c-section would prevent a vaginal birth, and the child doesn’t have to die for that. The child doesn’t have to die at all, and one look at the steps involved in the late-term abortion procedure clearly indicates this.
Besides any of these things, there’s the obvious corollary: You really don’t need special laws allowing abortion if your ‘real’ goal is the SAVING of lives. Do you need special laws governing conjoined twins? If the medical team can save both, they will. If only one life can be preserved, they don’t call it euthanasia, even if one life is forfeit. Because the real goal is MAXIMIZING the number of lives saved. There are no laws preventing the saving of maximum numbers of lives. Nor should there be.
If you are voluntarily ending a life (as with partial birth abortion) you are NOT saving the most lives possible. It is, in the truest and darkest sense, executing a choice.
So you can stop dressing partial birth abortion up as either ‘hard’ or ‘virtuous’. We see it for what it really is: the deliberate choice of someone’s death.

Trump vs. Khan. The media is abuzz about how (insert nasty adjective here) Donald Trump is for taking issue with the Khan family’s challenge of his character.
The usual talking heads cried foul. How dare anyone answer back to someone after they’ve been presented with a folded flag.
Right. Wikileaks showed us why they didn’t? The DNC signs off on their stories before they go to print. Here’s a recap of what they neglected to share:
When a Gold Star mother stands in public and says “I blame Hillary Clinton personally for the death of my son,” that’s a strong statement.
How did she respond? Hillary is on record in an interview with Chris Wallace. “I don’t hold any ill feeling for someone who in that moment may not fully recall everything that was or wasn’t said.”
Matt Vespa quipped: Oh, so Smith is not only wrong — her grief may have induced some amnesia? Vespa also linked to this handy flashback:
