In New York, Democrats passed and cheered a law that allows abortion not just in the third trimester, but right up to moments before birth. To celebrate their ghastly achievement, Democrat Gov. Andrew Cuomo ordered One World Trade Center to be lit pink.
That tower was built to celebrate life — specifically the lives lost to terrorism on 9/11. It was never intended to be used as a partisan pawn, never mind to commemorate such a radically anti-life law.
As if to one-up New York’s radicalism, Virginia, under Democrat Gov. Ralph Northam, is now considering a law that would allow “abortion” even after a baby is born in some circumstances.
Northam now claims his remarks have been mischaracterized. Here is what he said.
So in this particular example if a mother is in labor, I can tell you exactly what would happen, the infant would be delivered. The infant would be kept comfortable. The infant would be resuscitated if that’s what the mother and the family desired, and then a discussion would ensue between the physicians and the mother.
This must horrify many Americans who consider themselves “pro-choice.” Such “abortions” cross the line into infanticide. Northam is now embroiled in a racism controversy his governorship may not survive, but the fact is that his comments supporting post-birth abortion — infant murder — ought to have been enough to drive him from office. Surely most Americans who are culturally pro-choice cannot support this.
However, Margaret Sanger would swell with pride because this is what she, the founder of Planned Parenthood, wanted. The radical eugenicist — a scientific term for codified racism — founded the organization precisely to provide as many abortions as possible and to push for anti-family policies. She wanted to use abortion to “exterminate” black Americans. That is the term she actually used: Exterminate.
Another word for that is “genocide.”
Today, Planned Parenthood is America’s largest and best known abortion provider. It hands out annual “Margaret Sanger Awards” to celebrate its founder. In the name of “women’s health” it has presided over the termination of millions of baby boys and girls. Planned Parenthood also now clearly owns the Democratic Party stem to stern. Whatever Planned Parenthood wants from the Democrats, it gets.
Pro-life advocates warned for decades that the antiseptic “pro-choice” terminology used by Sanger’s disciples, such as Cuomo, Northam, Hillary Clinton and many others, really masks a pro-abortion position. They have claimed for decades that while they personally oppose abortion, they support its legal existence, and even support forcing taxpayers to fund it. Democrats obfuscate and confuse by saying, as President Bill Clinton declared, abortion should be “safe, legal, and rare.” New York’s law and Virginia’s bill render all but one of those moot. There is nothing safe about killing a baby who has been born. Expanding legal abortion right up to birth will make it far less rare. If these laws stand, more and more coins will jangle in Planned Parenthood’s bloody coffers.
What Democrats who support these laws really want is abortion at any time, for any reason, with absolutely no restrictions. The New York law proves this by allowing non-doctors to legally perform some abortion procedures. How does this make abortion safe or protect women’s health?
It’s as if Kermit Gosnell, the convicted Pennsylvania serial killer who used his abortion mills as murder houses for decades, never happened. Democrats today would make many of his crimes legal, and celebrate them by lighting up American monuments, if they believed they would get away with it.
Whatever one wants to call Northam’s and Cuomo’s policies, they are not about health and cannot reasonably be characterized as “pro-choice.” These same people would remove your choice of self-defense, they would remove your choice of health insurance, and they would remove many other choices you wish to make to run your own life.
But they push abortion far beyond the limits of moral conscience. This is the stance of those who actually favor abortion, as eugenicist genocidal monster Margaret Sanger did.
