Abortion is in many ways the most divisive issue in American politics, even among those who identify themselves as belonging to one of the two main sides of the issue, the divisions are often as divisive and rancorous as they are between the two main rival positions. Last night the divisiveness of the issue was on full display in the Manassas City Council as the council debated, with citizens’ input, the merits of taking an aggressive stance (the Aveni Amendment) in preempting the possibility that the abortion industry might take advantage of Manassas’ outdated city zoning codes, or whether to hope that the abortion industry passes over the probable one to two-year window that will exist as the city undertakes a comprehensive revamping of its zoning codes. The Council voted 4-2 in favor of hoping the abortion industry, and its paid (with federal taxpayer money) lobbyists, passes over the city and spares the city the possibility of another abortion clinic opening up shop.

Time will tell, and I hope they’re right, but if the NARAL and Planned Parenthood attendees last night are any indication of what lies ahead I suspect councilmen Harrover, Randolph, Way and Wolfe may soon be invited to a ribbon cutting ceremony of a spanking brand new special use medical facility, as they should be, as honorary midwives of  Manassas’ newest Abortion clinic. What a proud moment that will be for Manassas.
