The Great (?) State of Hawaii Proves Santyana Right
"Those who cannot remember the past...", you know the rest

If this wasn't so sick, it would just be sad. But this is beyond that... this is satanic.

Stick with me now... read this all the way to the end.

"Slaves (Negros) are a subordinate and inferior class of beings" ~ 1857, the Supreme Court of the United States. Dred Scott v. Sandford Decision

"In reckoning the numbers of the people of the Commonwealth, or of a State or other part of the Commonwealth, Aboriginal natives shall not be counted." ~ 1901 Constitution of Australia. Until 1967, Aborigines were counted on the official census as "fauna" (animals).

"Women are not persons" ~ 1928, the Supreme Court of Canada. The Persons Case.

"Those who are mentally retarded, mentally ill, epileptic, blind, deaf or physically deformed... will be euthanized" ~ 1939, Nazi Germany's T-4 Euthanasia Program (Tiergartenstra├če 4)

"Unborn children are not human beings" ~ Nov 30, 2005. The Supreme Court of the State of Hawaii

Interesting side note I found while researching this... "In the United Kingdom, Home Secretary Winston Churchill introduced a bill that included forced sterilization. Writer G.K. Chesterton led a successful effort to defeat that clause of the 1913 Mental Deficiency Act."

Is this a guy great, or what?

A sick decision, to be sure. As is the decision of Hawaii's legislature not to seek a change in the law to protect the unborn.

But, unfortunately, not surprising.

In the end, however, as shown by your other examples of those who were once deemed by the law as "non-persons", the realities of science and justice will eventually force a recognition of fetal personhood.

At least one would hope. And pray.

I just stumbled across this article myself. Though no longer a resident, I still have the majority of friends residing in Hawaii along with some family.

I am outraged at this decision by the Supreme Court of Hawaii.

I'm still pondering what I can do, but alas my only solice is prayer.
