When a man murders his wife, we don’t say, “Mr. X rendered his wife unalive by efficiently evacuating her cranial cavity with an instrument customarily associated with construction.” We say, “He bashed her brains out in a brutal attack with a claw hammer.”
Likewise, let’s just call PBA what it is: sucking the brains out of a live, fully-formed baby’s head, or cutting off its head entirely.
Whatever legal battles lie ahead, Wednesday’s high court decision seems a civilizing step forward, affirming as it does that the state has a substantial interest in protecting and preserving life.
