Sharon Griggs, the editor of the Dallas News, writes about her position on the new Texas law. She’s for it. I don’t necessarily think her position makes a heap of sense – she mentions the heartbeat of her 11-week old in gestation, then says a 20-week limit is “reasonable”. Her mind has changed more and more over the years towards favouring life.
Oh, and it seems clear – to me at least – that to be okay with killing something on the basis of not feeling pain is simply arbitrary through and through (does anaesthetic make a difference? Why not?).
I guess anything that contributes towards a pro-life culture is good, even if the speed of change can seem slow.
