The War on babies being waged by the abortion industry and its puppets in Congress sank to new depths last week.
Let’s be clear.
Congressman Trent Franks is trying to save babies’ lives — lives like the late-term babies that convicted murderer Kermit Gosnell killed. One such baby, Gosnell once joked, was so big he could “walk me to the bus stop.”
Rather than have these babies murdered by abortionists such as Gosnell, Congressman Franks would have them live. For this he is being viciously attacked.
Congressman Franks stated that the incidence of rape resulting in pregnancies that are aborted in the sixth month of pregnancy or later is “very low.” How is this even controversial?
We know from studies on the subject that rape results in pregnancy from about 1 percent to 5 percent of the time, depending on the study.
According to one study citing the 5 percent stats, half of those pregnancies are aborted.
We don’t know what portion of those 2.5 percent of rapes result in abortion after 20 weeks of pregnancy or later, but government statistics tell us that 1.4 percent of all abortions occur in the 21st week or later.
So, is it outrageous to suggest that 1.4 percent of 2.5 percent (0.035 percent) is a very low number?
By the way, as a repentant and healed post abortive mother, I encourage Congress to save as many mothers and babies from abortion as possible; because mothers and babies do die from abortions.
Babies and sometimes mothers die painful abortion deaths at 20 weeks which is five months. I say save all the babies and their mothers; mothers like Tonya Reaves, Jennifer Morbelli, and Karnamaya Mongar. These three women and their babies died from painful late-term abortions.
Again, let's be clear. All abortions are bad and painful to someone's body, soul or spirit.
Where do we begin to make things better? Congressman Franks and his colleagues are on the right track. Where do we go from here?
The answer is obvious.
People, it's time to let their babies and their mothers off the abortion bus.
