The House of Representatives today approved the bill H.R. 1797, that bans abortions from after 20-weeks of pregnancy up to the day of birth. The House approved the bill on a 229-195 vote with 7 Democrats voting for the bill and 6 Republicans voting against it.
I am currently carrying a 26 week old unborn baby girl named Tessa. She is viable. She feels pain and pleasure, she sleeps, she wakes, she dreams. She blinks and sees and touches and tastes and explores and even gets the hiccups. It deeply disturbs me that only 7 Democratic members of the House of Representatives are opposed to having her skull crushed and brains vacuumed out – after, of course, she’s been brutally dismembered while kicking and thrashing and silently screaming.
And keep in mind, this bill only addresses late-term abortions after 20 weeks post-fertilization, and still allows for abortion if the mother’s life is endangered, or in cases of rape and incest. The bill does not even protect children aged at the many stages of Tessa’s growth, shown above. Top left: Finding out I was pregnant, she already had a heartbeat and was wiggling around at this point in development. Top right: At my 10 week ultrasound, she was reacting to being poked and even threw a fit when I coughed. Bottom left: At 15 weeks we found out that she was a baby girl, even though that was determined at her conception. Bottom right: At 18 weeks, we saw her hiding her face, playing with her hands and sucking her fingers. The H.R. 1797 bill that just passed would not protect her from dismemberment at any of these pictured stages.
My question is, what is the mindset of these barbaric assholes that they will not only stand by complacently while men like Gosnell slaughter viable, pain capable children far older than my baby in the above pictures, but they actually cast a vote in favor of unlimited infant slaughter on demand? And what is wrong with registered Democrats that they are not concerned or dismayed at the voting habits of their elected officials?
This just sheds a great deal of light onto the true face of the pro-choice movement.
In the end, it doesn’t matter to them if a child who would survive outside of the womb is writhing at the end of an abortionist’s scalpel being pulled piecemeal into a sloshing bucket of blood and twitching human tissue. It doesn’t matter if the baby is viable. It doesn’t matter if the baby feels pain.
If pain was truly an issue, the bill would not start at just 20 weeks. During the hearing Dr. Maureen Condic, who is Associate Professor of Neurobiology and Adjunct Professor of Pediatrics at the University of Utah School of Medicine, testified that the unborn child is capable of reacting to pain as early as 8-10 weeks. This is when most abortions in America take place.
Surgeons entering the womb to perform corrective procedures on unborn children have seen those babies flinch, jerk and recoil from sharp objects and incisions. Ultrasound technology shows unborn babies react physically to outside stimuli such as sound, light and touch. Surgeons routinely administer anesthesia to unborn children in the womb before performing lifesaving surgeries.
And it doesn’t matter to the pro-choice movement whether the child is a living human being, because that has been solidly established scientifically for decades now. Under scientific taxonomy every single abortion kills a human being, a member of homo sapiens that is alive and growing. A human that is, and will only ever be, a human being. Elementary school biology states irrefutably at the moment of conception what Kingdom, Phylum, Class, Order, Family, Genus and Species the biological life form of a fertilized human egg is. Every conceived person is a member of Animalia, Chordata, Vertebrata, Mammalia, Primates, Homo, Sapien.
Denying humanity to a conceived human being is so anti-science it’s laughable. It is an ignorant, faith-based and solidly flat-earther view.
When you account for the humanity of the unborn, the pain of the unborn, and the viability of the unborn, and you still advocate the savage slaughter of human beings just because they are “unwanted”? That is the true face of the pro-choice movement. And it is PATHETIC.
