Alabama law may help end ignorance about abortion

Contact him at www.jpepperbryars.com.They say that ignorance is bliss, but it's also the only thing that's keeping abortion-on-demand legal in our nation.Truth is, most people simply don't know – or don't want to know – what actually happens inside abortion clinics. Most gladly accept the lie that only a small, unidentifiable clump of cells are harmlessly flushed away every time a mother walks into an abortion clinic.It's easier to simply move right along, blissfully and willingly ignorant of the gruesome truth rather than face the facts ... and the uncomfortable moral obligation that comes with such knowledge.Thankfully, recent legislative efforts in Alabama and elsewhere are trying to move the debate away from theoretical arguments about "choice" and towards those that address the most pressing issue of our time: should our society condone – and even subsidize – the poisoning and dismemberment of our unborn children?Alabama Attorney General Luther Strange is currently defending a recently enacted state law that "prohibits dismemberment abortion – a form of abortion where a living fetus is killed by tearing it limb from limb," according to his filing in federal court.
