One For The Pro-abortion Space Watchers
Today is a good day to be a pro-abortion sky watcher. There will be a penumbral lunar eclipse. The word penumbra became know to most people through Justice William O. Douglas and his opinion in the case of Griswold v. Connecticut. In that case, Douglas wrote that “specific guarantees in the Bill of Rights have penumbras, formed by emanations from those guarantees that help give them life and substance.”
Europe, Africa and the western third of Asia are in the best position to see this lunar eclipse, as it occurs high in their sky, as the night of March 14 transitions to March 15. Most of the Americas will be able to see it as well, although the eclipse will already be in progress on Tuesday evening as the Moon rises and ascends the eastern sky.
