Sometime in 2003 when Bob Filner was a Congressman the barbaric procedure of Partial Birth Abortion* was being debated. Filner was a supporter of the procedure working against the Partial Birth Abortion Ban Act S3.
I went with a handful of pro life ladies along with a couple of men to gather outside the downtown San Diego building where the "pro choice " leaders were meeting. Our peaceful picket was intended to educate the public on this horrible practice as well as draw attention to those who supported it.
After awhile, to our surprise the door opened and out stepped Bob Filner himself. He was alone. One of the group attempted to approach him to discuss the issue. Wide eyed, Filner took one look at us and turned. He took off down the other side of the building as fast as he could. No, he would not speak with us, much less explain his support for partial birth abortion.
San Diego is learning that a man that cannot be trusted to defend the most innocent and defenseless little lives, cannot be trusted - period.
Filner is the new face of the Democrat party along with Anthony Weiner and Eliot Spitzer. Although this is not really new considering the past behaviors of Ted Kennedy and Bill Clinton. Despite their rhetoric as champions for women, Democrats truly are the party waging war on women both born and unborn!
* " Partial-Birth Abortion is a procedure in which the abortionist pulls a living baby feet-first out of the womb and into the birth canal (vagina), except for the head, which the abortionist purposely keeps lodged just inside the cervix (the opening to the womb). The abortionist punctures the base of the baby’s skull with a surgical instrument, such as a long surgical scissors or a pointed hollow metal tube called a trochar. He then inserts a catheter (tube) into the wound, and removes the baby's brain with a powerful suction machine. This causes the skull to collapse, after which the abortionist completes the delivery of the now-dead baby."
