This is the first attack on the right of a woman and her family to choose and another way to force their beliefs on to others. The republicans are really going to go for this one! Clinton vetoed it every time.
As for the procedure itself, I personally find it absurd that an exceptionally rare procedure, usually performed with respect to non-viable fetuses anyway, would generate the furor and consume the time and energy that this one has. This is particularly so given how pathetically little concern so many of the people who are frothing at the mouth about this issue show towards the impoverished and less-fortunate members of our society once they are actually born. (Note, by the way, that I said "so many", and not "all".)
That being said, although I support the right to choose an abortion, I believe it should be performed in as humane a manner as possible. A D&X, while much better for the physical health of the woman, can hardly be considered "as humane as possible", at least as presently practiced, for the fetus.
