Protecting the Unborn

CAL THOMAS COMMENTARY FEBRUARY 17, 2020

     SENATE MAJORITY LEADER MITCH MCCONNELL HAS ANNOUNCED THE SENATE WILL CONSIDER TWO PIECES OF PRO-LIFE LEGISLATION BY THE END OF THE MONTH.

         ONE IS THE “BORN-ALIVE ABORTION SURVIVORS PROTECTION ACT,” WHICH RECEIVED A HEARING IN THE SENATE JUDICIARY COMMITTEE LAST WEEK. THE BORN-ALIVE BILL REQUIRES DOCTORS TO PROVIDE MEDICAL CARE TO ANY INFANT WHO SURVIVES AN ATTEMPTED ABORTION PROCEDURE.

         THE SECOND BILL IS THE “PAIN CAPABLE UNBORN CHILD PROTECTION ACT.” IT WOULD PROHIBIT ABORTION AFTER 20 WEEKS’ GESTATION BASED ON SCIENTIFIC RESEARCH THAT FETUSES ARE CAPABLE OF FEELING PAIN BY THAT POINT IN PREGNANCY. LAST MONTH A NEW REPORT SUGGESTED THAT FETAL PAIN IS IN FACT POSSIBLE EVEN EARLIER IN PREGNANCY THAN 20 WEEKS.

         DEMOCRATS, OF COURSE, WILL VOTE AGAINST BOTH BILLS AND IT WILL NEVER PASS THE DEMOCRAT-MAJORITY HOUSE. THAT’S BECAUSE DEMOCRATS ARE THE ABORTION PARTY, REFUSING IN SOME CASES TO SAVE THE LIVES OF CHILDREN WHO SURVIVE ABORTION.

         THIS IS WHY ELECTIONS MATTER AND HAVE CONSEQUENCES. VOTE ACCORDINGLY THIS YEAR. I’M CAL THOMAS.
