Woman Forced to Carry Non-Viable Pregnancy to Term

I've read this from several different places, but the basis is summarized from here:

A Nebraska woman said she was denied the ability to end her non-viable pregnancy because of state law.
In Nebraska, abortions after 20 weeks are banned based on the disputed notion that fetuses can feel pain.
Danielle Deaver, of Grand Island, told The Associated Press that she was about 22 weeks when she learned that she wouldn't be able to carry the pregnancy to term and that her child would die soon after birth.

What is the point of that? Is this a case that falls through the holes of abortion regulations, or are some people that dead set on "protecting life"?

Well I'm back

Back from the unplanned hiatus. Wasn't much fun.

I leave this offering of Fundies Say the Darndest Things

If offers quotes like "My concern for level of pain of rape would be greater if it weren't for the fact that most American women deserve to raped because they oppose prostitution as a sexual outlet for men. Since they deserve to raped, I cannot concern myself with the pain rape causes them."


"Yes sex at six can cause psychological damage. But thats only in rare occasions. Most girls are fine. Thats a scientific fact."
