49. To answer your question ...
"Why is it that a majority of Americans oppose this treatment?"

Because they have no idea what it is or why it's done. They've been brainwashed by the propaganda. They think "partial birth abortion" is a actual medical procedure, which it is not. It is nothing more than a propaganda term - it doesn't appear in any medical text book.

As we all know, the fact is that it's a rare medical procedure done only in extreme cases - it is not an "elective" procedure. A woman doesn't walk into a doctor's office when she's 8 months pregnant and demand an abortion because she's changed her mind. :eyes:

They'll ban the procedure with no exception for the health of the woman which is absolutley ridiculous because if the woman dies, so does the fetus - and if the fetus was healthy to begin with, the woman's life would not be in danger, so there would be no need for the procedure. Besides, if the fetus is so badly deformed that it endangers the life of the woman carrying it, it won't survive anyway - so what the hell's the point of risking the woman's life? :mad:

My head's spinning from that statement! :crazy:

We know what's going to happen ... a woman's going to die because she couldn't have the procedure done and all hell is going to break loose! All this bill does is make a fetus more important than an actual living, breathing human being. It makes a fetus so "sacred" that it's life is worth more than the woman carrying it. In other words, it makes a woman worthless. :grr:
