Every day on the football field or the baseball diamond, kids and grownups give each other a high-five to celebrate the victory or a good play. But Democrats in the United States Senate used the fun move to celebrate camaraderie and a job well done on something dark and disgusting.

Well, for starters, the legislation is not radical. To take a page from liberals, let’s cite Europe, where most European countries, even those with well-established left wing politics, ban abortion after 20 weeks. In some nations, it’s 12 weeks. Also, almost everyone is against late-term abortion. Solid majorities, especially women, also support a 20-week ban.
