The Religious Left

Never heard of these guys, the Religious Coalition for Reproductive Choice, but they sound as much anti-Catholic as they do pro-anything-else:

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - A coalition of religious leaders took on the Catholic Church, the U.S. Supreme Court and the Bush administration on Tuesday with a plea to take religion out of health care in the United States.

They said last week's Supreme Court decision outlawing a certain type of abortion demonstrated that religious belief was interfering with personal rights and the U.S. health care system in general.
Sounds a little dishonest to me. It's a religious view if it is counter to the view of the Religious Coalition for Reproductive Choice, a religious organization. Isn't their view as religious as mine?

I don't think you need a religious foundation to oppose the insertion of scissors into an infant's brain. I'm going to go out on a limb and guess there are even some Wiccans who oppose the sucking out of babies' brains.

Anyway, the article made me wonder; Is there any form of abortion that these people would oppose? Would it be ok with these guys to dispatch newborns with clubs, like baby seals? I mean, if partial-birth abortion isn't too much for you, what is? Is anything ok, so long as there's no baby there when it's over?

So long as they don't have to watch? I don't think they care how the babies are killed. If it can't argue with them, kill it.
