The United States is losing it's soul...

Surely, a woman gets to do with her own body as she pleases; the problem is what she is doing to the body of another which is to deprive it of life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.   When will the madness end?  History will remember the savagery that abortion is in this generation just as we look back in horror at those who would throw a newborn infant into the river in biblical times.  This isn't freedom for women; it's slavery to insanity and self-centeredness.  There are so many organizations today willing to pay the cost for a woman to bring a baby to term, then give it up for adoption.  There is simply no reason to murder persons unborn.

Obama Nominee for Judge Says Abortion Frees Women From “Conscription Into Maternity”

The United States Senate Judiciary Committee will vote this week on President Obama’s nomination of Cornelia Pillard to the court that many consider the second-most powerful and important in the land, the Court of Appeals of the D.C. Circuit. Of President Obama’s judicial nominees who have exhibited hostility towards unborn children, perhaps none is as flagrant, or as out-of-touch, as Cornelia Pillard. 
In a 2007 law review article, Pillard wrote that “[r]eproductive rights, including the rights to contraception and abortion, play a central role in freeing women from historically routine conscription into maternity” (emphasis added). She believes there is an “equal protection” right to abortion—a position never adopted by the United States Supreme Court. 

And who will free the unborn persons -- and all of us really -- from shallow-thinking, morally bankrupt judges?
In other words, she believes that women cannot be equal citizens unless they have an unlimited right to abortion, and rather than suggest that the Constitution be amended if her views win favor with the American people, she asserts that the Constitution already protects abortion by forbidding states to deny anyone the equal protection of the laws. 
Given Pillard’s views on equal protection and abortion, she would likely find most laws enacted to protect unborn children and their mothers invalid, including such widely-supported measures as late-term abortion restrictions, parental involvement and informed consent requirements, and clinic regulations.

Pillard has also ridiculed the dissemination of scientific facts regarding, and images of, fetal development, inexplicably characterizing these efforts as popularizing “deceptive images of fetus-as-autonomous-being.” What can she possibly think is “deceptive” about this?
