HIGH COURT RULING BRINGS SANITY TO ABORTION ISSUE Mr. Herrera ignores the real underlying legal and factual issues in the recent abortion ruling by the Supreme Court [ "In abortion ruling, majority abdicated," April 20]. The legal issue is whether the Supreme Court, in Roe v. Wade, acted as a super legislature when it found, without precedence in history, law, culture or tradition, that an unborn child was not a person for purposes of the 14th Amendment. The ruling in Roe was obviously political in nature, having no basis whatsoever in the Constitution (unless one finds it radiating in the ultraviolet spectrum underlying the penumbra of one of the Bill of Rights � a favorite liberal fantasy). The factual issue concerns the procedure itself. Just describing the partial-birth abortion procedure should make any feeling and thinking person sick. A third trimester, completely viable fetus is pulled from its mother’s womb, leaving only one inch of the skull in the birth canal. A doctor than punctures its skull and mashes its brains, thereby killing it. Dr. Mengele would be so proud of the doctors who make lots of money performing this procedure. I don’t know how anyone in their right mind could support the use of this type of barbarism. It is obvious that Mr. Herrera has no care or concern for our unborn children � after all, they don’t vote. We should applaud the court for bringing some small degree of sanity and civility to the abortion issue.
