The "Abortion Sidestep"...

So much for being a guardian of the most vulnerable among us:
The DFL-controlled Minnesota Senate has side-stepped a showdown over abortion by stripping several measures out of its budget bill.

Lawmakers passed a $127 million supplemental spending measure Monday night on a vote of 64-3. The original bill involved much more state spending. But with several abortion-related amendments looming, DFL leaders pulled out nearly $80 million worth of health and human services provisions.
Ahh yes... The ol' Abortion sidestep--one of the dem's best dances:

(...to 'the Hokey Pokey')

...You do the sidestep here
And the double-speak there
And some laws get thwarted
And still babies get aborted..
You do the 'bortion sidestep
And you spin it round and round..

And that's what it's all about!

It would have been funny if there weren't actual innocent lives in the balance.
