I knew that having President Donald Trump in office would mean big things for America, but it seems like things just keep getting better and better.
Trump is not afraid to be politically incorrect and he often calls out people and situations who are in the wrong, but others are too afraid to say anything about it.
Now, the pro-life agenda is going to be propelled forward in a monumental way: no more late-term abortions. This isn’t exactly the law we are ultimately fighting for (which will outlaw abortions completely) but it is a huge step in the right direction.
Daily Wire reports:
Speaking to pro-life leader Susan B. Anthony List President Marjorie Dannenfelser, President Donald Trump said it is a “high priority” for him to sign a proposed bill banning abortions on babies after 20 weeks, who are capable of feeling pain.
The “Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act” will be voted on in the House on October 3, and is expected to pass. If the act can muster 60 votes in the Senate, where Republicans have a majority (52 seats), the important pro-life legislation will be codified by the president.
In 2015, this bill was shot down by Democrats in the Senate.
Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy said, “Not only will passing this legislation keep a promise we made, but all the work is for the same goal: ending suffering and helping people live.”
As noted by The Hill, the legislation is sponsored by Rep. Trent Franks (R-AZ) and would criminalize abortionists performing the procedure post 20 weeks. The women seeking the abortion will not be punished.
“We want to be there for the woman, and we know we need a law to protect the children,” said Dannenfelser.
The pro-life leader is not only optimistic that the bill will make it through the Senate and be signed by the POTUS, Dannenfelser believes the media will cover it.
“This will be a big issue in the 2018 Senate elections,” she explained.
Dannenfelser said, “The only way that media bias could really kill this is by not reporting it at all, which is, of course, one tactic that happens a lot. That would be something of concern,” she continued, “But I’m finding mainstream outlets with reporters that they understand why it resonates. They basically get most of the arguments out and frankly, without the pressure of really good outlets, I don’t think that would have happened.”
Life begins the moment that little heart starts beating. Why is it okay by Democrat standards to kill a living, human child, but not eat a cheeseburger or fish? It makes no sense.
