Pro-lifers opposing the partial birth abortion ban say it will force abortionists to commit more torturous abortions, and this may be true.
Whereas the ban prohibits breech abortions of babies delivered past the navel and head-first abortions of babies delivered past the chin, some pro-lifers say abortionists will now simply deliver a baby’s legs and rip them off before proceeding, or deliver the baby almost to the navel and disembowel the baby, etc.
One pro-life group opposing the partial birth abortion ban wrote in an Open Letter to Dr. James Dobson two weeks ago (emphasis theirs):

The [Supreme Court] Justices raise the likelihood that with this [PBA ban] ruling, the fetus faces greater brutality. On page 30, the Justices note the objection “that the standard D&E is in some respects as brutal, if not more, than the intact D&E [PBA].” That is, standard late-term D&E abortion appears to be more cruel than PBA… [N]ow these kids will suffer more horrifically with this ruling than before, as we congratulate ourselves.

However, the very pro-lifers making this argument oppose fetal pain legislation, so their argument is disingenuous. Stated one member of this group, Brian Rohrbaugh, president of Colorado Right to Life, in an interview:

… What was wrong with that [fetal pain consent] bill is it’s very good to warn women that their child is going to
suffer intense pain. But its evil to offer a solution and then to allow the abortion to continue…

I can only call it ruthless to withhold pain relief from someone you know is about to be tortured to death, which you can’t stop…
Should Jesus’ friends have knocked the sponge of wine vinegar away from Him while He was being legally but wrongfully killed?…
