    Same with buying beer. Or free speech. Or seeing an R-rated movie. These decisions should not be made on the spur of the moment. Wait 24 hours before responding to this post, please.

    Mmmm Kentucky Fried Fetus...nom nom nom...
    Kentucky Grilled Fetus, Jerry, get with the times. Dipping the fetus in boiling oil ruins the texture and has too much cholesterol.

    The problem with grilling is that it tends to fall through the grates.

    Why do you think the third trimester abortion was invented?

    Obviously. The drawback, of course, being that they are not as tender in the third trimester. It's a trade off, I suppose. I just usually go with a nice saute. Not too fatty, quick cooking, no grates. And if you leave the placental marinade on it never gets dry.

    Actually, they put on most of their weight during the third trimester, so that's when they are the meatiest. If you cook them earlier, it's like trying to eat quail. They're all bones and hardly any meat.

    For the record, I have no problem with waiting periods. It isn't like America is suffering from a overkill of thinking about decisions too much.

    Of course, technically, YES
    Maybe 100 years from now we will have a better people, but for now, abortion is the law.
    But to cut the unborn baby a little slack is not all bad; IMO, this law or change to the law is an improvement.
    Kudos to those man enough to back it...

    I'm not saying its a good or bad thing. I haven't really taken a stance on that aspect of the decision.

    I was simply pointing out that it is essentially a meaningless gesture that bases its rationale on the idea that the decision to have an abortion is a rash and quick decision in which no thought has gone into. That is almost never the case.

    The impact of the waiting period has little, if any effect on middle and upper class women, but could have a big financial effect on the poor.
