    no doubt. but you put down dogs for reasons like that. not human beings.

    Not so rare that this law ignores that possibility. "Exceptions to the law are made ... if the woman is pregnant as a result of a sexual assault". These are real problems that a woman must face. Many times a sexual assault goes unreported as the victim does not have the wherewithal to come forward. This law further denudes a woman of her sense of self and dignity.

    I don't understand this comment. Are dogs more deserving of compassion than a severely deformed, suffering human being?

    Your response an uninformed one and clearly over the top. I am opposed to this law and think it was poorly drafted I do not see a definition which clearly delineates what a irreversible medical condition or abnormality for the purposes of this law.

    you have it in reverse. i have the right to kill my dog because it is my property. my grandchild is not my property, but a human being with inherent God-given rights, the same as my children, myself, or my wife. my father in law deals with constant pain. me randomly shoving a needle into his cranium before sawing his limbs off isn't the answer to that.

    actually, in many states your ass will get tossed in prison if you abuse your dog or mistreat it.

    I still don't understand why you would be kind enough to kill an animal in pain, but let a human being suffer an unnecessary hell.

    A young friend of mine and his wife found out that she was pregnant with craniopagus twins. He's Roman Catholic. The expenditure plus the post-op suffering recovery of the infants was too much to consider allowing them to be born. I know that head conjoined twins from Sudan were separated about 12 or so years ago. I haven't heard much about those boys since they were quite small and wearing helmets. I hope they are living normal lives. The many operations that they had were done pro bono to allow for the benefits of advanced medical operations.

    I think my friend and his wife made the right decision. The Sudanese couple might have made the same decision if they would have had proper prenatal care.
