Politically Incorrect Surgery

A report of surgery on an “unborn baby” to remove a tumor while still in the womb seems to have gone unnoticed by pro-choice fanatics. Where is the outcry? Wasn’t that just a waste of money and effort on a “blob of protoplasm”? Wasn’t this a job for Planned Parenthood?

The tumor was discovered during the 17th week of pregnancy when saving the “blob of protoplasm” should never have even been considered. Instead, Dr. Ruben Quintero and Dr. Eftichia Kontopoulous successfully performed a first of its kind, in-utero surgery.

This “blob of protoplasm”, now called Lynda Gonzales, is currently 20 months old and perfectly normal and healthy. When did the change from “blob” to “unborn baby” occur? At what point in pregnancy would such a surgery be considered a better option than abortion? Would Planned Parenthood have recommended this surgery or even consider its use? Is it considered an acceptable “choice” for a modern woman to make?

Perhaps this type of questioning is too deep for a purely “pro-choice” consideration. This level of complexity doesn’t fit on a bumper sticker and, therefore, does not register. Lynda Gonzales may be very lucky for that.
