The Party of Death

What is the difference between a baby born at 11:01 and a full term fetus in the womb at 10:59?   Simple, 2 minutes and a dehumanized term.  Even the term “born alive” is miss leading.  Is an unborn fetus not a living ‘thing’?  A jury found Dr. Grosnell guilty of murder for ending the life of a ‘fetus’ (determined to be a living baby by a jury) that was “born alive.”   And here we are, 2019, with politicians supporting and pushing bills to allow exactly what Dr. Grosnell was found guilty of murder for.In Virginia, a bill proposed by Democrats was tabled in committee.   During a legislative hearing, Del. Kathy Tran (D-Fairfax) admitted that her bill would allow a doctor to perform an abortion after the mother had gone into labor.  A full term baby, would be allowed to be killed with this bill.  The governor of Virginia (D) supporting this bill. [1]

In New York, Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo signed into law an abortion bill that was pushed through by Democrats who now control both legislative houses in New York.  This bill allows for abortion up till birth. [2]

In Vermont, Bill H-0057, states “Every individual who becomes pregnant has the fundamental right to choose to carry a pregnancy to term, give birth to a child, or to have an abortion.”  Then states:   “A fertilized egg, embryo, or fetus shall not have independent rights under Vermont law.”  No one finds it interesting that a government body can arbitrarily declare that a certain “term” can not have rights?  Sounds historically familiar. [3]

The governor of Rhode Island, Gina Raimondo, supports abortion up to birth.  Rhode Island’s bill states:  “Restrict an individual person from preventing, commencing, continuing, or terminating that individual’s pregnancy prior to fetal viability.”  Included in the bill, is this:  “Spousal Notice for Abortion” is hereby repealed in its entirety.”  So now, a wife who wants to get an abortion does not even have to tell her husband.”  A Husband and father as NO right to say anything in this bill.  What is even more shocking this this:  “Partial Birth Abortion” is hereby repealed in its entirety.”  What are they exactly repealing, glad you asked, here is their definition that was repealed:  “partial birth abortion” means an abortion in which the person performing the abortion vaginally delivers a living human fetus before killing the infant and completing the delivery.”  Now that THIS is repealed, the “killing” of “a living human” that has been “vaginally delivered”  is no longer against the law in this bill.  If that isn’t disgusting enough, their “Homicide” section is also repealed which stated:  “The willful killing of an unborn quick child…” and the definition of a “unborn quick child” was this:  “quick child” means an unborn child whose heart is beating, who is experiencing electronically measurable brain waves, who is discernibly moving, and who is so far developed and matured as to be capable of surviving the trauma of birth with the aid of usual medical care and facilities available in this state.” THAT MEANS, “a living human” also known as a “unborn quick child” who has a beating heart, with brain activity, moving, and is capable of surviving a birth… can NOW be aborted…[4]

With just these four examples, we see politicians of the same party, from different states pushing the same thing.

The Washtington Post posed two important questions:  “What medical conditions require crushing an infant’s skull rather than delivering it via Caesarean section? And if killing a baby that way would never happen, as the defenders claim, then why does it need to be legal?” and then poses the question:  “But this raises uncomfortable questions, most obviously: What sort of political party is willing to cheerfully advocate destroying infants even as they’re getting ready to be born?”  It is clear, there is one major party that supports this…

What we keep hearing is “fetal viability.”  What does that even mean?  The medical dictionary states “The ability of a fetus to survive outside of the womb.  Historically, a fetus was considered to be capable of living at the end of gestational week 20 when the mother had felt fetal movement (quickening) and the fetal heart tones could be auscultated with a fetoscope.“[5]

A 21 week baby born, is now a healthy toddler [6].  Of course Newsweek has to include the statement “A baby born before 25 weeks is considered extremely preterm and often comes into the world with complicated medical problems, according to Mayo Clinic.”  AND?  So what?  So “complicated medical problems” justify preventing that person from living?  What about this little girls rights to life?  The mother who chose to fight for life stated “She’s a little smaller in stature next to the other kids, but otherwise, she has no mental or health disabilities, or issues whatsoever,” Stensrud said of her “miracle” daughter. “She is just normal.”  This little toddler is loving life, being a kid!

But, a certain political party, would advocate for aborting that little girl instead of fighting for her life.

Of course the published Democrat Party Platform on abortion is very general and vague,  only stating “We believe unequivocally, like the majority of Americans, that every woman should have access to quality reproductive health care services, including safe and legal abortion” [7].  But, abortion is legal, so what exactly are they talking about?  Well, we can only guess they are talking about the type of abortions that aren’t legal currently- later term, full term, and partial birth abortions (as seen by Democrat bills from New York, Vermont, Rhode Island, and Virginia.)

In a televised debate between Donald Trump and Hilary Clinton; he said:

“With what Hillary is saying, in the ninth month, you can take the baby and rip the baby out of the womb of the mother just prior to the birth of the baby,” Trump said. “Now you can say that that’s okay, and Hillary can say that that’s okay, but it’s not okay with me.”

He continued: “Because based on what she’s saying, and based on where she’s going and where she’s been, you can take the baby and rip the baby out of the womb in the ninth month, on the final day. And that’s not acceptable.”

Clinton accused Trump of using “scare” tactics in response.

“Well, that is not what happens in these cases and using that kind of scare rhetoric is just terribly unfortunate,” she rebutted. “This is one of the worst possible choices that any woman and her family has to make, and I do not believe the government should be making it.”

And here we are, with government laws making it legal to do just that.  Anti-Trump people will cringe at this but, guess what, he was right.  That party is, in fact, advocating for just that; proven by the bills they, themselves, have drafted.

IT IS these kinds of supportive laws that led to Doctors and nurses refusal to treat a premature baby born at 21 weeks.  Instead, despite THE PLEAS FROM THE MOTHER, they let the baby, who was born alive, die.[8]  But, as shown above, a 21 week born baby COULD survive if given medical care.

It is not necessarily THE Democrat Party, but it is THE ideal they adhere to; that makes THEM the party of death.

*UPDATE 5 February 2019, State of the Union Address.*

It is interesting to point out that the women of Congress, who wore all white cloths (supposedly in remembrance of the continuance of woman’s suffrage), did not show support but remained seated when The President condemned later-term and post-birth abortion.  Then, they ALL sat silently, without clapping, after The President pointed out the arrests made, and efforts made, in fighting sex trafficking.   Another, more unified proof of their ANTI-LIFE stance; in public display.
