    would be viable outside the womb with a little care, and cutting off there legs, arms, removing them....Does anyone know if this is true? I googled it, and there's so much politics involved that its hard to know what's true and what's not. I know that partial birth abortions are illegal, but that's it.

              either are not viable or endanger the life of the mother or both. If you read the statistics, you will see they represent such a tiny number of overall abortions that the mere act of getting exercised over them shows that you are indeed a wingnut. So she showed herself to you today, which is good.
