Anesthesia Jeopardizes Freedom of "Choice"

The Washington Times reports on Delegate Richard H. Black's proposal to require abortionists to provide anesthesia for a fetus at the "20-week stage."

In the words of protestors at the state Capitol, this is just an attempt by Virginia's legislators to make women's reproductive decisions for them.

No word yet on anyone protesting the USDA's Food Safety and Inspection Service's enforcement of Humane Methods of Slaughter Act as interfering with anyone's freedom of choice. Similarly no word on any protests against the policy of several states and the federal government to permit a condemned man a dose of a sedative before his execution.
