Indiana Governor Eric Holcomb signed into law a bill that would ban dismemberment abortions last week.

The Kansas Supreme Court has discovered a right to abortion in the state’s constitution in a decision striking down a ban on a brutal second-trimester abortion technique.

A bill to legalize assisted suicide in Maryland went down to the narrowest of defeats in the state Senate this week.

It was bound to happen. Abortion supporters have made babies fair game for nearly half of a century — the original disposal of the unwanted, the burdensome, the parasite, the financial headache.
