Tilting at Windmills

The North Dakota House has passed a measure giving a human fetus the same legal rights as an already-born individual. The bill is a direct challenge to Roe v. Wade.

"Critics of the measure say it will cost millions of dollars to defend. Ruby [the measure's sponsor] said the state has been willing to go to bat for other principles that were less important."

I absolutely love this. The 51 House Members who voted for this measure are courageous - perhaps heroic - for voting their consciences and challenging the huge, evil, money-coining business that abortion has become in this country.

"Good luck! And let us all beseech the blessing of Almighty God upon this great and noble undertaking."
