    Splitting headache today preventing too much wonderful originality, however I wanted to let you in on something good happening in Lansing.

    A Michigan legislator wants legislation that bans the murder of children who happen to be unfortunate enough to have been conceived and carried in Michigan.  "Unfortunate" at least till now.

    State Sen. Arlan Meekhof, is introducing (not yet enrolled)  SB 160 to ban the practice of partial birth abortion in Michigan.  The practice which has had other attempts to ban it by legislators only to be shot down by the former governatrix Jennifer Granholm. When presented with the opportunity as passed by the house 72 34 and senate 24 to 13 in 2008.

    This time its different.  Or at least one would think so.

    First off, the language is supposed to mirror already constitutionally vetted language by congress, because another attempt was through a citizen initiative, and was ruled unconstitutional by the 6th circuit court:

    Constitutionality: The U.S. 6th Circuit Court of Appeals, affirming the U.S. District Court's decision in Northland Family Planning v Cox (docket Nos. 05-2417 and 05-2418, published June 4, 2007), held that the Legal Birth Definition Act, an act initiated by citizen petition, is unconstitutional. The court held that "invalidation of the law is the only available course" since the act "imposed an undue burden on a woman's right to terminate her pregnancy by prohibiting the D and E procedure, because it failed to adequately protect the health of the woman, and because it was void for vagueness due to its confusing language."

    I would encourage the fast passage of this protection of our unborn.

    Life is kinda cool.. ya know?

    ... what says Gov. Snyder on this?  His neighbors in Ann Arbor would snub him for signing such a bill.
