They came with their chants of “hail Satan,” their containers of feces, bricks, and yes reportedly even used feminine hygiene products to hurl at those who simply want to protect babies who can feel the cruel pain of abortion. Yet, they did not prevail.
Pro-abortion protestors went to extreme lengths (and President Obama stood with them) in an attempt to prevent the will of the people from defending the defenseless, unborn babies.
In the end, abortion fanatics lost; babies won.
The Texas legislature, in the early morning hours Saturday, passed a bill to ban abortions after 20 weeks and enforce strict safety requirements on abortion clinics.
In short this is a Gosnell law – a law to prevent what abortionist Kermit Gosnell did to countless babies and their expectant mothers in Pennsylvania from ever happening in Texas. The bill, expected to be signed into law by Governor Perry, will prevent abortions from being committed after 20 weeks, make abortion clinics meet the same critical minimum safety standards as hospitals, including the ability to save the lives of babies born alive, and regulate abortionists to protect expectant mothers.
NARAL Pro-Choice America, Planned Parenthood, and other radical abortion promoters complain that this law will decimate abortion clinics in the state. The fact is it will save lives – babies’ lives and the health and lives of expectant mothers.
The debate (if you can call throwing feces and bricks a debate) over these laws marks a critical turning point, a watershed moment, for abortion.
For the first time the extreme anti-life agenda of the abortion industry, with its “abortion on demand without apology” mantra, is being displayed for all to see.
Try as they might, the mainstream media cannot cover the bill they detest without showing the outrageous actions of the pro-abortion extremists.
They cannot continue pushing their “War on Women” propaganda while at the same time fighting against laws that will protect women, that will stop future Gosnells from preying on them.
The abortion industry is losing its blinding lock on the American public, and it is searching for anything to latch on to. All it finds is the pure evil and extreme fanaticism upon which abortion and the abortion distortion (the way we treat abortion differently than anything else) rest.
It has been said that its ideological adherents worship at the altar of abortion. This is becoming more evident than ever. As one abortion worshiper tweeted me after this bill passed, “HAIL SATAN, Allah Hu Akbar [or] anything else that scares [you] people.”
The sad irony is that these individuals fight for a cause; our cause fights for individuals. We simply stand up for the human rights of babies – babies who can feel pain – babies who deserve the same opportunities as every other human being on this planet.
What happened this weekend in Texas isn’t just a win for pro-lifers; it isn’t just a victory for the rule of law and the will of the people; it is a win for babies.
And that is a victory worth fighting for.
Now as an important side note, the abortion industry isn’t just opposed to laws that prevent babies from being aborted, they are pushing laws that would shut down pro-life pregnancy centers that help women in their greatest time of need. Sign the petition to stop these pro-abortion laws as we defend pro-life centers in court.
The ACLJ today filed, jointly with the Houston Coalition for Life, an amicus curiae brief with the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit in the abortion regulation case of Whole Women’s Health v. Lakey . The state of Texas is appealing from a federal district court ruling that struck down (1)
The scandalously lax regulation of the abortion industry is a well-documented fact. From Dr. Gosnell’s “ House of Horrors ” to Steven Brigham’s decades long trail of quackery , the unique status of abortion as a politically protected procedure has resulted in countless tales of grotesque medical...
The abortion industry has gone all in this election. Big abortion knows that its bottom line is directly connected to the politics of abortion. Elect pro-abortion candidates who will deregulate dangerous abortion practices and their bottom line goes up. Elect pro-life candidates who will place even...
Today, the Supreme Court declined to weigh into a case that had the potential to cripple or even shut down pro-life pregnancy centers in New York City. Thankfully, the ruling of the Second Circuit Court of Appeals in Evergreen Association v. City of New York , which now stands as the final arbiter...
