In their eagerness to promote abortion and capture liberal votes, Democrat politicians talk about “reproductive rights” and Roe v. Wade (read: killing babies in abortion) in glowing terms. But when you replace the dehumanizing euphemisms with the knowledge that abortion truly is the destruction of tiny, defenseless babies, the phrases and sentences reveal the true horror of what is promoted.
Take Elizabeth Warren for example.
She wants a national law literally making Roe v. Wade and abortions up to birth the law in every single state. No limits on late-term abortions. No limits on taxpayer-funded abortions. No rights for women to be given informed consent or protected from shoddy abortionists and dangerous abortion clinics. Nothing.
Promoting that conception, she told a crowd at a rally yesterday: “Let’s make democracy work and make Roe the rule of this land in every state.”
So democracy somehow “works” when abortions up to birth is the law of the land in every state.
In more realistic terms… killing viable babies in abortions is what makes democracy work. That’s literally what Warren is saying — and its a scary proposition most Americans oppose.
Warren has urged Congress to pass laws that require states to allow unrestricted abortions. She said she believes the legislation is necessary because the U.S. Supreme Court may overturn Roe v. Wade in the near future.
Her plan would prohibit states from “interfering in the ability of a patient to access medical care, including abortion services, from a provider that offers them.” This leaves no allowances for restrictions on abortions after unborn babies are viable or even partial-birth abortions, which could become legal again under her plan.
Warren’s plan also calls for taxpayer-funded abortions. She wants to end the Hyde Amendment, which prohibits taxpayer funding of elective abortions through Medicaid, the AP reports. Additionally, it her plan would require that all health plans “– including Medicare for All — [include] contraception and abortion coverage.”
CNN reports she also would end Trump administration policies that defund Planned Parenthood, including the new “Protect Life” rule for Title X and the Mexico City Policy.
Her plan would make laws like the ones passed in Alabama and Georgia invalid, and would prevent other states from making even moderate restrictions on abortions, such as after viability.
“These extremist Republican lawmakers know what the law is — but they don’t care,” Warren said. “They want to turn back the clock, outlaw abortion and deny women access to reproductive health care. And they are hoping the Supreme Court will back their radical play. I’ll be blunt: It just might work.”
However, polls indicate that Warren is the real “extremist” in voters’ eyes. A new Hill-HarrisX survey found that 55 percent of voters said they do not think laws banning abortions after six weeks – when an unborn baby’s heartbeat is detectable – are too restrictive, according to The Hill.
The findings are not unique. Gallup polls consistently have found that a majority of Americans think all or most abortions should be illegal. In 2018, 53 percent of respondents said abortions should be legal in only a few (35 percent) or no circumstances (18 percent).
In February, a Rasmussen poll found that just 21 percent of voters support New York’s new late-term abortion law, which allows abortions for basically any reason up to birth. A full 66 percent oppose the law, including 44 percent who identify as “pro-choice” on abortion.
According to a national poll by Marist University, three in four Americans (75 percent) say abortion should be limited to – at most – the first three months of pregnancy. This includes most of those who identify as Republicans (92 percent), Independents (78 percent) and a majority of Democrats (60 percent). It also includes more than six in 10 (61 percent) who identify as “pro-choice” on abortion.
The U.S. is one of only seven countries in the world that allows elective abortions after 20 weeks of pregnancy. Even most European countries prohibit or heavily restrict abortions after the first trimester.
