My post from yesterday (Liberals want to save rats - but it’s OK to kill children) generated overwhelmingly positive reaction, however there were a few who disagreed with my premise and thus they believe that a living rat has more value than a 9 month fetus/baby even minutes prior to birth. Aside from challenging my intelligence and knowledge of the issue using colorful language, the main arguments of those who opposed my position was that I was wrong because…
- “Rats are sentient. They have their right to life. They were born, experienced pain”
- Abortion is OK because “Fetuses aren’t born. Nor are they sentient.”
- A fetus is not a baby, therefore “no children or babies are involved” (in abortions)
Apparently, “sentient” is the new word that Planned Parenthood and the far-left is teaching its little foot-soldiers to use in their arguments defending any and all abortion practices. A definition of the word is: “responsive to or conscious of sense impressions”. It has been demonstrated that a fetus in the womb is responsive and does in fact feel pain. According to WebMD:
- At 20 weeks (5 months): “the nervous system is starting to function. The external genitalia can be used as a means for you to see if it’s a boy or a girl.” If the nervous systems is functioning, then the fetus can feel pain.
- At 24 weeks (6 months): “the Baby responds to sounds by moving or increasing its pulse.” Notice how WebMD is referring to it as a “baby”. Maybe the doctors at WebMD are ignorant too, and don’t know the difference between a baby or a fetus, just like me.
- at 28 weeks (7 months): “There’s a good chance the baby would survive if born prematurely now.” In other words, it’s a potentially viable human child.
Those who disagreed on the grounds that a fetus is not the same as a baby or a child clearly missed a key sentence in my original post… that the left will fight to the death defending the right “to violently murder children - human babies - whether those babies are in the womb, or partly out of the womb, or even if they manage to make it out of the womb before being killed.”
The morality of abortion with a fetus in early stages can be debated forever. For certain, in later stages (2nd & 3rd trimester) it is morally reprehensible for reasons I mention above. However, Democrats and the Left, led by Obama, have fiercely supported even the most monstrous act of Partial-Birth Abortion. This procedure involves pulling the fetus through the woman’s birth canal feet first until only the head remains inside. Then, using scissors or a sharp instrument, the head is punctured, and the skull compressed (i.e. the brain is sucked out), and finally the dead baby’s crushed head is pulled out.
In 1995, the GOP led Congress passed laws banning “partial-birth abortion”, but it was vetoed by Pres. Bill Clinton. Again, in 1997 Congress passed another law banning this procedure, and again Bill Clinton Vetoed it. Countless Democrat Senators and Representatives have defended this monstrous practice which is advocated by the far-left.
Now to take this another inconceivable step further, on occasions when a “doctor” is performing this horrible procedure, some babies which were already partially outside the birth canal have exited completely and been fully delivered before the “doctor” could finish killing them. In these cases, the babies have been dumped in the soiled utility room, left to die alone because physically finishing the job would be murder at this point. Folks… this is infanticide!
While Barack Obama was Senator of Illinois, he opposed the “Born Alive Infant Protection Act”, thereby supporting and defending infanticide, allowing these fully delivered and struggling babies to die on their own like trash. As Obama stated:
there was “movement or some indication that, in fact, they’re not just coming out limp and dead.”
Not only did Obama verbally support this procedure, but he legislatively did so via the true coward’s way - neither voting for, or against it, but rather voting “present” to avoid a backlash from voters and from the extreme-left.
Finally, in 2003, the bill was signed by President George W. Bush to become law. However, the far-left immediately began to challenge the constitutionality of the law after the signing. In 2007, the U.S. Supreme Court in a 5-4 decision, Gonzales v. Carhart, held that the statute does not violate the Constitution.
Later, during a debate moderated by Rick Warren, then Presidential candidate Obama stated that issues of abortion were “above his pay-grade”. Again, a coward with no back-bone to tell Americans the truth… that he has supported and protected all forms of abortions, including infanticide. He later went on to lie and obfuscate about his positions to protect his presidential aspirations.
So don’t tell me that the Liberals, the far-left & Democrats don’t support the extermination of “babies”, whether they are in the womb, halfway out of the womb, or completely out of the womb! These people worship at the altar of abortion and infanticide.
“Do not give any of your children to be sacrificed to Molek, for you must not profane the name of your God. I am the LORD.”
