What About the UNwelcome Babies? 
It's getting tiresome. Pro-life leaders, commentators, and especially Republican politicians, repeat the same convenient mantra — they're looking for the day when "every child will be welcomed in life and protected in law." What's wrong with that? It sounds so good. Isn't that the goal we are seeking?

NO. The goal we are seeking is for every nascent child (a.k.a. - unborn baby) to be protected in law regardless of whether he is welcome or wanted! The UNwelcome babies are the very ones who most need our protection! If we're going to be satisfied with politicians who recite this mantra, telling us to wait until society is ready to "welcome" every baby from the moment of conception so that laws respecting and protecting their lives can finally be enacted, we're going to have a very long wait.

Florida Supreme Court Strikes Down Parental Notice Law 
Florida Supreme Court Senior Justice Leander Shaw, writing for the majority, said the court had based its decision to overturn the 1999 law requiring the notification of parents 48 hours prior to a minor's abortion on Florida's privacy guarantee, which is considered more extensive than rights provided by the U.S. Constitution. It was a 5-1 decision by the same court that favored Al Gore in the 2000 election; two new justices appointed by Governor Jeb Bush had not yet taken their seats.

Carole Griffin, president of the Capital Chapter of Florida Eagle Forum, comments in the July edition of her newsletter: "Everyone can talk about parental responsibility and yet here we have the court driving a wedge between parent and child. Other than in a life saving medical procedure emergency, there is no other medical surgical procedure that a minor can receive except an abortion without parental permission. Of course, if there is a complication to the abortion, then her privacy is no longer valid and the parents are handed the medical bill or the dead body of their daughter." [Emphasis added]
