Considering the recent signing of the “Texas Heartbeat Act” I wanted to take this time amidst the cheering, back patting, joyful tears, and fist pumping to be “that guy.” As many may be aware, this is not the first bill of this nature to pass. The Ohio legislature passed the first one in 2019 much to the apparent chagrin of the Pro-Death Movement and the delight of the Pro-Life Industry and yet, the number of babies murdered in the womb in the state of Ohio was only marginally affected.
“Yeah, but if it saves only one life…” I hear you and I’m with you. When states like New York, Virginia, California and several of the usual offenders have chosen to take the gloves off entirely and allow mothers and fathers to hire hitmen in lab coats to slaughter their offspring up until the moment of natural birth, any limitation on the butchery seems like a victory. But we ought to know better by now. How many times do we need to do the same thing while expecting a different result before we get committed to the psyche ward?
