Leave it to the left to object to the terminology but not the hideous action the words describe.  Form over substance.

So where does this slippery slope stop?  How long is someone a "newborn" who can be after-birth aborted?  Suppose that there is some condition that, if discovered before birth, would have "justified" an abortion, but that isn't discovered until significantly after birth?  Suppose that condition doesn't manifest itself until 6 months after birth?  Can a six-month old infant be after-birth aborted?  Furthermore, since undue hardship on the mother is a criteria for "justifying" an abortion, wouldn't these two be logically committed to the conclusion that a parent who falls into economic distress can after-birth abort that child at any point prior to the time the child moves out of the parents' house and starts supporting her/himself?  Suppose a formerly self-supporting child moves home and starts to rely on her/his parents for support?  Could such a child be after-birth aborted if the parents then found themselves in dire financial straits?
