North Dakota’s Senate passed a pair of anti-abortion measures Friday that are considered to be the most restrictive in the nation, including one that would prevent women from having an abortion based on a genetic defect.
The bill is expected to be signed into law. The governor has not given any indication that it would be vetoed, and guess what? If he does happen to veto it, they have the votes needed to override the veto. The bill bans any abortion if a fetal heartbeat is detected.
The other one bans abortions for genetic defects. Over 80% of Downs syndrome babies are aborted in this country. Many times Down’s syndrome is not detected until 20 weeks. If an AFP test comes up negative they don’t usually do a ultrasound until 20 weeks. 20 weeks!! Do you know what a baby looks like at 20 weeks?
My opinion is this is a HUGE win for pro-life people. I know of a few people who had children with Downs Syndrome, and they adore their children. The children are happy, loving, high functioning joys to be around. They are incredibly easy to love. Aborting because you didn’t get the “baby you wanted” is evil to the point of frightening. I cannot imagine seeing my beautiful baby on an ultrasound and saying, “Yeah, I don’t want to be burdened with the extra care of a kid with problems. Lets just get rid of it.”
As for the fetal heartbeat law? YES!! Finally !! A state that sees that when a baby has a beating heart it is a little tiny person. I can’t for the life of me figure out why on earth no one has figured this out before. I am thrilled. Now if other states would start passing this type of regulation we would be in business. States have the right to pass laws of this nature. I am sure this means a long and costly legal battle for North Dakota. I personally would be glad to donate to the fund. Its about time someone woke up and at least TRIED to stop the mass slaughter.
In America we hear how bad genocide is. Rwanda, Darfur, etc…. Well its time America woke up to the fact that right here in good old America we are committing legal genocide on a daily basis, and Hell, we are even paying for it. I love all the anti-gun people crying about how guns cause deaths every year. ”Guns are dangerous!!” “Protect our Children” They cry with their mock outrage pasted all over their face, and dripping from every voice, their righteous indignation apparent in every line of type. Yet, the biggest killer of our children, is….. Doctors. Legally sanctioned, paid for , plain and simple murder. 1.2 Million Children are executed under the ridiculous notion of protecting the mothers rights. If they were really interested in saving our children they would stop this senseless murder.
WAY TO GO NORTH DAKOTA. YOU HAVE MY THANKS!!
