Best of Times/Worst of Times

Go ahead and argue that this 14-weeks-since-conception baby-in-his-mummy's-tummy isn't actually clapping to music. But try to deny that he's a living human being and you might as well have yourself committed. 
Juxtapose that bit of undeniable reality with this: The Kansas Supreme Court has today struck down Senate Bill 95, the "Kansas unborn child protection from dismemberment abortion act". The ban on the dismemberment ban was immediately hailed as a "victory for women's reproductive rights." 
That baby, happily clapping his way through the first week of his second trimester, is now eligible to be dismembered in his mother's womb by a medical professional and have his corpse delivered in pieces which could then hit the baby-parts market and help said professional improve his state in life, perhaps even buy a Lamborghini.
