With the growing evils of today’s Left, the term “pro-life Democrat” almost seems like an oxymoron at this point. But recently, southern Democrats have shown their respect for life inside the womb in a very unexpected way: with a 15-week abortion ban being signed into law.
Breitbart News explains that the bill, which was authored by Democrat state Senator John Milkovich, “was signed by [Louisiana Governor John Bel Edwards] Wednesday afternoon.”
What is also interesting is that Edwards is the Democrat governor of Louisiana.
“The legislation creates criminal penalties for anyone performing an abortion beyond 15 weeks. Mothers of unborn babies would not be charged,” according to Breitbart News.
Milkovich spoke during hearings of the bill, saying: “The farther along the pregnancies the more risks to the mother and the more tortuous it is for the babies.”
May I remind you that this IS A DEMOCRAT REFERRING TO PEOPLE IN THE WOMB AS “BABIES”! It’s honestly a sad, sad world when something like that seems almost unbelievable.
The News-Star reported on this story, having Dr. Wayne Gravois testifying in favor of the bill, saying: “They can yawn, smile, grimace (at 15 weeks). It’s a baby.”
The measure wound up being overwhelmingly popular, passing in the state House by a vote of 70-9, and passing in the state Senate by a vote of 24-1.
Now, despite these good news, there also are some bad news regarding this. Babies can’t simply be allowed to remain safe, if Leftists have anything to say about it.
Back in March, Mississippi passed a similar law and became the first state to ban all abortions after the 15th week of pregnancy. According to Breitbart: “The state’s only abortion clinic immediately challenged the law in court, and a federal judge granted a temporary restraining order to keep it from going into effect. The Louisiana law will go into effect if the Mississippi law is upheld by the courts.”
And back in May, Iowa Governor Kim Reynolds signed a bill that bans most abortions once a fetal heartbeat can be detected. The biggest child-killing organization in the world simply couldn’t stand idly by and joined forces with ACLU (American Civil Liberties Union) to file a lawsuit against the state over the law.
In case you are unfamiliar with ACLU, don’t let their official name mislead you. The acronym may as well mean “American Communist Liberal Union” with how Leftist they are.
Returning to Louisiana, a Leftist group called Lift Louisiana is “launching a social media campaign against the law, claiming it prevents women from accessing abortion.”
The director for the pro-abortion group stated: “It is painfully clear that anti-abortion state legislators will stop at nothing to push their radical agenda, despite growing evidence that these laws hurt women. It must stop. With this campaign, we’re aiming to raise awareness about our state’s dangerous abortion restrictions and how Louisianans can fight back.”
First, the only ones with a radical agenda is the Left. Killing children inside the womb in the name of healthcare and women’s liberation can’t be described as anything other than a radical agenda… well, except maybe “murder” but that’s beside the point. It’s not a radical agenda to want to save as many babies as possible from women who feel as though it is their only option and choose to make a horrible mistake. It’s a radical agenda to want to allow people to indiscriminately kill the unborn, which even they know is wrong, otherwise they would not hide behind “healthcare” and “women’s liberation”.
If they honestly didn’t think it was wrong, they wouldn’t try to convince people it was anything other than murder. (Whether they care if it is wrong or not is a different matter. Chances are they do know it’s wrong and still don’t care).
Second, what evidence suggesting these laws hurt women? She doesn’t offer any, of course. Why? Because there honestly isn’t any. To say that such a law hurts women is to defy logic. How could it possibly hurt women? Most women have a feeling that they are pregnant about a week after conception, when the embryo implants itself in the uterus. They can confirm their pregnancy to a pretty accurate degree soon after.
If they don’t want the baby or feel they can’t afford to have one and choose abortion for some reason, they still have roughly 14 weeks, or about 3 months to come to such an evil decision and perform it. So time restraints are not what supposedly “hurts” women.
So in what other regard could it possible “hurt” women? It doesn’t. It only hurts Planned Parenthood’s bottom line and the Left’s dream to see the African-American race go extinct (since African-Americans are the biggest victims to abortion and Margaret Sanger was a noted racist who founded what would eventually be Planned Parenthood to exterminate what she considered as “weeds” of the world).
Finally, given the overwhelming support for the bill, which was CREATED BY A DEMOCRAT AND SIGNED INTO LAW BY A DEMOCRAT, I don’t think very many Louisianans will look to “fight back” against what they consider to be “oppression”.
By stark contrast, Susan B. Anthony List president Marjorie Dannenfelser said that all the pro-life lawmakers of Louisiana, including the Democrat ones, ought to be applauded for this accomplishment.
“They followed through on their pro-life principles and united across party lines to protect unborn children. Louisiana is leading the way in their bipartisan effort to bring our nation’s laws into line with basic human decency.”
The key there is “basic human decency” of which the Left severely lacks. The Left only believes in basic human decency when it is to protect rapist illegal immigrant gang members.
Alas, that is a different conversation for another time. For now, I will simply commend Governor Edwards and Louisiana State Senator John Milkovich for their part in the creation and signing of the bill to protect the most innocent of us all.
I simply hope and pray that it will be allowed to take effect soon and that the evil organizations who are against this child-saving policy will fail in their efforts.
“For you formed my inward parts; you knitted me together in my mother’s womb. I praise you, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made.”
We bring you the TRUTH that the Left denies you. You'll live a more joyful and victorious life, because the Truth will set you free...
