With the debacle between the White House and CNN White House Correspondent Jim Acosta taking the limelight in recent time, one piece of news that may have been largely ignored or hardly talked about was the great pro-life win that occurred last week when the Ohio House of Representatives voted in favor of banning abortions once a heartbeat has been detected in the fetus.
State House Bill 258 passed 58-35, moving on to the State Senate for consideration. Now, I don’t know each person within the State Senate, but Republicans have 23 votes to Democrats’ 9, so logic would dictate that the Senate Republicans will vote in favor of the bill, effectively passing the bill and sending it to the Governor’s desk.
And that’s really where the problem lies, considering Ohio’s current Governor John Kasich (DeWine will be inaugurated next year) vetoed a similar bill back in 2016, supposedly out of fear that “a legal challenge would overturn it”, according to the Daily Wire.
Such a fear is reasonable (though I would argue that it’s best to fight it in court than simply give up and veto it) since similar bills have been passed in North Dakota and Arkansas, but overturned by the courts, often citing the precedent set by the Supreme Court in the Roe v. Wade case of 1973.
According to LifeNews: “The controversial legislation would ban most abortions in Ohio if it becomes law. An unborn baby’s heart begins beating around six weeks, though new research suggests it may begin as early as 18 days after conception.”
Some of the comments from the House Republicans who supported and/or sponsored the bill are extremely endearing. State Rep. Christina Hagan said: “The point is: it’s time. It doesn’t matter if the governor is with us or against us,” referring to the possibility that Kasich may also veto this bill. “Motherhood isn’t easy but it’s necessary.”
State Rep. Candice Keller said: “(Abortion) is not a constitutional right. If you don’t know that, you need to read the Constitution.”
And my favorite comment comes from state Rep. Kristina Roegner, who said: “Today, let us stand up for the most innocent among us: the unborn.”
Now, predictably, House Democrats opposed the bill, suggesting that “abortion providers will be unjustly penalized”, according to the Daily Wire. This is in reference to the fact that the bill would also punish abortion providers, charging them with a felony for breaking the law by aborting a baby with a detected heartbeat.
However, I really must ask: what about the human beings inside the womb that are unjustly penalized for just existing? Why don’t they matter? Why is it Democrats care more about what happens to the abortionists that perform these heinous crimes of nature than they care about what happens to the unborn children that are mercilessly slaughtered for no other reason than the fact that they are there? But I’ll get back to this momentarily.
Now, back in 2016, the U.S. Supreme Court refused to hear an appeal for the case. But since now Justice Kavanaugh is on the court, should such an appeal come up, they might be more willing to hear it, perhaps even leading to the grander case of reviewing and perhaps even overturning Roe v. Wade. But that’s getting ahead of ourselves, and it depends on an awful lot of things, such as if the Ohio Senate passes the bill (which I expect), if Kasich decides not to veto it this time (which I don’t expect, knowing him), if it receives a challenge in the court (which I would expect if Kasich doesn’t veto) and if Kavanaugh would be willing to hear an appeal for it (which I would expect, but you really never know).
So an awful lot of variables are to be taken into consideration before we even get to the possibility of overturning Roe v. Wade.
But as it stands, this is a great victory for the unborn, at least in the state of Ohio.
Now, let’s once again touch upon the desire to protect the practice of abortion over protecting the life that is growing inside the womb.
To me, and likely to many other people, defending those who perform abortions is no different than defending a serial killer. Imagine living in a world where someone is on trial for murder, and you have a number of people there defending the guy’s supposed right to do that. Because at the end of the day, that’s what these people are supporting.
It’s not about choice, because God knows the Left hates it when you make the “wrong” choice. It’s about legal murder and, depending who you ask, population control based on the ludicrous idea that we are somehow running out of room on our vast planet and we have too many people alive today that will eat up all our food and resources, when the exact opposite actually happens.
It’s about committing unspeakable evil in the guise of justice. It’s about committing horrible sin in the guise of doing what’s right. It’s sickening.
The fact that these particular Ohio Democrats would vote against such a bill that most sensibly argues in favor of the FACT that it’s a human life that’s growing inside a woman is really all I need to know about the Democrat Party. Of course, I already knew many of these things, and I am not surprised in the least that the Democrats would oppose such a bill, but it does highlight the evil and hatred they harbor in their hearts to be willing to sacrifice a human life inside the uterus in the name of “justice” and “women’s liberation”, which would be laughable arguments if the overall topic weren’t so serious and dire.
Not a single Democrat can dare lecture me about justice when they turn around and support such evil. Regarding the migrant caravan, not one of them can convince me that it’s the right thing to do to let them in, knowing that these Democrats also support the death of humans inside the womb. Regarding transgenders, there isn’t a Democrat that can convince me it’s right to let them think they are the opposite gender of what they truly are, knowing that such people would not be considered people inside the womb.
Regarding anything the Democrat Party says is right and just, I cannot possibly believe any of them or their arguments. Beyond disagreeing on transgenderism, illegal immigration, gay rights, climate change, etc., what truly matters to me, at the end of the day, that tells me whether someone is conservative or a Leftist is whether or not they support abortion at any capacity.
The day I heard Mitt Romney defend abortion in cases of rape and incest, wrong as both things are, made me recognize he wasn’t conservative. Heck, it made me recognize he was one of them. A Democrat in disguise (it doesn’t help that the now-Senator-elect is calling for climate action as being a priority).
Hearing these Republican women made me smile, recognizing that these women are conservative, and that the Republicans who voted in favor of the bill are conservative. They are fighting for those who truly have no voice, and who abortionists make sure will never have a voice. Fighting for those who cannot fight back, and who abortionists dismember, so that they can never fight back.
If me mentioning that abortionists dismember these babies made you cringe, or made your heart ache, good for you. It’s what happens and you recognize that it’s evil. I wonder just how many people who say they are pro-choice even know that such horrors are taking place. And I wonder how many of them even care.
I hope, for the sake of our nation’s soul, that most of them are simply ignorant to the evil, and not aware and in favor of such evil.
