While a lot of people are happy yesterday because the House passed the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act to stop abortions after 20 weeks, I am saddened. Why am I heart-broken by the turn of events from today? Babies before 20 weeks can still be murdered, and those conceived in Rape/Incest and those with special needs are the exceptions, and they can still be murdered. I truly am starting to lose all respect for the Pro-Life Movement. You don’t pick and choose which babies you save and which ones you don’t. All life must be valued. We know that if the Senate passes the bill that the President says he will veto the bill and I would not put that past him. If he does veto it, we need to pray and vote for a pro-life President that takes a stand for Life and Hopefully we can get Personhood Legislation in the House and Senate and passed. Personhood believes that life begins at conception and that all life must be valued.
If the President doesn’t veto the bill, this will allow for more abortions, not less. Why? Without having to report the rape, women can just lie about being raped and get the counseling that would be required before having an abortion. That is what started this whole mess over 40 years ago was because a woman lied and said she was raped so she could have an abortion. I wonder how many people know that Mississippi was the first state to legalize abortions in cases of rape in 1966.
As for me, I will continue to take a stand and fight for the unborn until all life is valued.
