Sheer Brilliance

If you're anything like me, you check out the forums at democraticunderground.com from time to time. Why? To lose whatever scintilla of faith in humanity that you might have left.

I just came across a remarkable suggestion in a thread discussing partial birth abortion and a recent government witness. The witness was a doctor testifying that. according to his research, a fetus at 20 weeks could feel pain. Naturally, this witness was viewed by most of the DUers as a crazy right wing threat to the fundamental human right to have profligate sex with no consequences. But then...the brilliance...one poster had a simple solution. If a fetus can feel pain, we'll just simply anaesthetize the fetus before we abort it. Something tells me he's missing the broader point.

And some people think that liberals live on another planet...where do they get that idea?
