Editorial: Democrats support abortion

A handful of Democrats in the U.S. Senate are dead set on maintaining abortion on demand – even though science has proven that killing a child in his mother’s womb involves excruciating pain.

A majority of senators voted for the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act, which would make it illegal for any person to perform, or attempt to perform, an abortion without first making a determination of the probable post-fertilization age of the unborn child.

If the post-fertilization age of the unborn child is determined to be 20 weeks or greater, an abortion shall not be performed, unless it is necessary to save the life of the pregnant woman or if the pregnancy is the result of rape or incest. But 42 Democrats blocked the bill on a motion to proceed to closure (it required 60 yes votes).

Despite reporting from the liberal media, like the Tulsa World, these politicians are pro-abortion – not “pro-choice.” They don’t believe a baby is a person until someone takes it home from the hospital. By 20 weeks, there is conclusive scientific evidence that a baby can feel pain, they can hear sounds, and they can react to sounds. They twist, they kick, they yawn and they stretch, and some even open their eyes and suck their thumbs. But most importantly, they feel pain.

But these heartless liberals want the legal right to kill a baby right up to the normal time of birth. They say the baby has no right to life but what is most important is the convenience of the mother.

This attitude is why we have killed 55,000,000 million babies in America since 1973. It is the American Holocaust.

Perhaps a new president – who is not a Democrat – will have the courage to lead and to rid America of legalized abortion.
