Prop 5 opponents may claim this proposed amendment does create and perpetuate the worst kind of legal inferiority — by in effect defining the viable fetus a non-person whose life may be ended without legal recourse.
I rate VTDigger’s article by Colin Meyn as deliberately misleading. The bishop did not state that such abortion procedures were performed — he stated that they were legal, which they most evidently are. But Mr. Meyn’s straw man has caught fire — it appears from his own data that such procedures likely are performed here in Vermont, electively.

The House Judiciary Committee on Friday approved Vermont’s controversial abortion bill, H.57, after a week of review.
Why is it that with all the brain power and tools man has developed to accomplish amazing things, he is unable to admit that what he sees on that ultrasound picture right before him is a dependent human being just beginning life’s journey?

“The Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act prohibits exactly the kind of infanticide that Gov. Northam was endorsing. That’s it. That’s what the legislation is about.”
