USC student Holly Ashcraft goes 2-for-2 in performing self-administered late-term abortions. Rumor has it that Molly Yard and Faye Wattleton embraced and shed tears of joy upon hearing of Ashcraft’s bravery on behalf of women everywhere.
Police said the full-term boy was born alive before he was put in a cardboard box and placed in the trash bin near a popular USC hangout Ã¢â‚¬â€ and Ashcraft’s off-campus apartment Ã¢â‚¬â€ late Sunday. A homeless man searching the bin for recyclables discovered the child and called police, authorities said.
Normally, that would be enough for the National Organization of Women to put her name in the hopper for National Reproductive Rights Superstar of the Year. However, to NOW’s delight, Holly is now 2/3 of the way through a hat-trick. Independent Sources reports that Holly was a suspect in yet another late-term abortion a year ago, but since authorities never found the body, she wasn’t charged.
Independent Sources also points out that there are Safe Surrender laws in place for women in just such situations and that when Holly allegedly abandoned late-term-abortion-#2 by the dumpster, she was a mere 42-second drive from a Safe Surrender drop-off spot. Hmmmm… tough call… dumpster? Safe drop off? Dumpster? Safe drop off? Decisions, decisions….
So how exactly do we make excuses for a Ã¢â‚¬Å“motherÃ¢â‚¬Â who kills her child because she does not want to make the 42 second trip to a place where the child can be turned over and live. If one is screwed up enough that they canÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t make this decision (for whatever reason) then their moral compass is so skewed that they should not be walking among us (not to mention having their tubes tied).
Though she sits in jail waiting for a kind passer-by to post her $2 million bail, she can sleep well at night, knowing that she’s up for the joint NOW & NARAL Reproductive Rights Superstar of the Year award for 2005.
