Interesting Choice Of Words: “Cannot Survive, Hacksaw, Chipping Away”

Medical News Today – Nebraska Gov. Dave Heineman (R) on Tuesday signed a first-of-its kind bill (LB 1103) that bans abortion beginning at 20 weeks based on supporters’ claims that fetuses can feel pain at that point, the New York Times reports….

Nancy Northup, president of the Center for Reproductive Rights, said that the law is “flatly unconstitutional” and “absolutely cannot survive a challenge without a change to three decades of court rulings.” She added, “Courts have been chipping away at abortion rights, [and] this would be like taking a huge hacksaw to the rights” (Jenkins, AP/Yahoo! News, 4/13).
