Killing the living to save the unborn

See here.

I've been meaning to post about this, but I don't what to say that I haven't already said.  See my War on Women and "Personhood" for embryos:Unborn=person,woman=0

It's not getting better, it's getting worse.  :(

We need a case that does not rely on Roe v. Wade as precedent.

Given that Judaism COMPELS an abortion when a woman's life is endanger, any law that privileges a Fetus' life over the mother's constitutes state interference in the practice of religion, contrary to the plain meaning of the first amendment.

In fact, it seems to me that the Hobby Lobby case, predicated on the theory that the state cannot compel people to behave contrarily to their religious requirements, could be used as precedent here.

To be honest, Richard, I would really hate to have to rely on the Hobby Lobby case as a precedent, though it could be argued that a ruling permitting abortion because forbidding it would constitute state interference in the practice of a religion would be kind of sticking the Hobby Lobby's nose in it. :)
