Ten Reasons to Vote for Ben Cardin, at least according to his supporters, Part 1

Clicking around the local blogosphere today, I came upon the Jousting for Justice blog. This was a new blog to me, and interesting in that it is the first that I have come upon with a liberal slant. The main feature on the blog, today, is 10 Reasons to Vote for Ben Cardin. Being a proud Steele supporter, I decided to read these "10 reasons" to see if anything good could be gleaned from them. Was there? You decide.

Reason #1 to support Ben Cardin (according to his supporters):

"Cardin Supports a Woman's Right to Choose. For this important reason alone, Ben Cardin deserves your vote."

Really? Are you sure? Well, then, let's see what that "choice" is, shall we?

Just in case you can't read the diagram, here is what it says:

A. A speculum is inserted in the vagina, a tenaculum is clamped to the lip of the cervix and a cannula is inserted into the uterus.

B.The amniotic fluid, placenta, and fetus are suctioned through the cannula into a collection jar. The fetus and placenta are torn apart in the process.

C.The uterine cavity is scraped with a curette to determine whether any significant amount of tissue remains.

D.The contents of the collection jar are examined that all fetal parts and an adequate amount of tissue commensurate with estimated gestational age are present.

This is the procedure for which his supporters say that you should vote for Ben Cardin. This is the most common abortion procedure performed in the United States today.

Ben Cardin also voted AGAINST the partial-birth abortion ban. He wanted every woman, at ANY TIME DURING PREGNANCY, to have the right to choose this:

1.Guided by ultrasound, the abortionist grabs the baby's leg with forceps.

2.The baby's leg is pulled out into the birth canal.

3.The abortionist delivers the baby's entire body, except for the head.

4.The abortionist jams scissors into the baby's skull. The scissors are then opened to enlarge the hole...

5.The scissors are removed and a suction catheter is inserted. The child's brains are sucked out, causing the skull to collapse. The dead baby is then removed.

And for this reason alone we should vote for Ben Cardin, according to his supporters.

Part 2, tomorrow.

HW, I can't decide if you are serious, or if you are trying to be "witty".

In the event that you are seriously comparing "bad plastic surgery" to an abortion, I can only say, Get Real!

While no one would argue that a botched plastic surgery operation is anything other than bad (btw, I'm not morally opposed to plastic surgery), it's not the same as deliberately murdering another human being (who did not ask for this operation). To suggest so is ridiculous.

I hope this is your...brand..of humor.

its not humor, its cynicism. abortion is a neccessary evil. deal with it. posting up here with your nice tidy graphics is good and all, but this crap is a cry from you. and why not compare abortion to bad plastic surgery? hmmmm they are both operations to be rid of something you dont want. one is falbby boobs and the other is a lifetime responsibility. I think your problem is you have no problem killing grown ups but consider babies innocent until they are like what 4 or 5? then chuck them on the pile of life.oh well thats just how you guys think, all about the fetus and jesus.

by they way, i always wondered how people like you feel about baseball players name jesus. whats your take on that.

A baby is a person, not a "lifetime responsibility".

Abortion is in no way necessary, though it is evil.

And while I do think a lot about Jesus (though probably not as much as I should), that isn't the reason that I am against abortion. I'm against abortion because killing babies is wrong. Period. Or do you think that groups like "Athiests for Life", "Feminists for Life", and "The Prolife Alliance of Gays and Lesbians" also spend all their time thinking of Jesus?

People like me? Do you mean, people who want to live and allow babies to live?

HW: "I think your problem is you have no problem killing grown ups but consider babies innocent until they are like what 4 or 5? then chuck them on the pile of life."

First, no one was talking about killing grown-ups. Second, even if we were, that is another issue and doesn't have any application to whether or not killing babies is acceptable. Third, perhaps YOUR life stinks, and that is why you use expressions like "pile of life" - but that doesn't mean that other peoples' lives are equally rotten. And even if they were, that doesn't give you the right to decide that they shouldn't live.

I just can't get over how people like you can be so fine and dandy with killing innocent babies.

Perhaps your own life is rotten and that is the reason? I sure can't imagine any other reason that someone would argue so much for the right to kill babies.

4000 babies were murdered today in the United States while you went about your day. Did you even give them a thought?
