Taking another slide down the slippery slope, on Jan. 22, 2019, Gov. Andrew Cuomo of New York signed a law legalizing abortion for the entire 40 weeks of a woman’s pregnancy — literally up until the moment of full-term delivery.
These are babies with fingernails, hair and a distinctive face. These are viable human babies that can survive outside the mother’s womb. The legislation also removes abortion from the criminal code and clarifies that a range of medical professionals, not just licensed physicians, can perform the procedure.
Days later on Jan. 30, Gov. Ralph Northam of Virginia endorsed a bill that would have broadened the ability of women to obtain an abortion up to the point of birth. Northam defended the bill, adding that if a baby were born alive during such an abortion — he assumed that the abortion would be due to “severe deformities” or “a fetus that’s not viable” — then the baby could be “kept comfortable” while the family and the doctor decide its fate.
“If a mother is in labor…the infant would be delivered. The infant would be kept comfortable. The infant would be resuscitated if that’s what the mother and the family desired, and then a discussion would ensue between the physicians and mother,” Northam said on WTOP’s “Ask The Governor” segment.
Folks, that’s INFANTICIDE.
Infanticide (or infant homicide) is the intentional killing of infants.
The mainstream media quickly went into action distracting the American public away from these disturbing developments; instead turning attention to a three-decades-old photograph showing a medical student in blackface and another man in a Ku Klux Klan outfit. Apparently the mainstream media wants you to believe an insensitive event 30 years ago is more important than the current day fact this Virginia governor endorses infanticide.
What’s next? My life? Your life?
It’s hard for me to imagine what is going on inside the hearts and minds of these people promoting abortion and infanticide. While some may interpret their actions as humane and caring for the health of the mother, I just can’t accept that murder is ever humane or caring. It is not only immoral but forbidden in the Ten Commandments. “Thou shalt not commit murder.”
Furthermore, just as they did not think it worthwhile to retain the knowledge of God, so God gave them over to a depraved mind, so that they do what ought not to be done. They have become filled with every kind of wickedness, evil, greed and depravity. They are full of envy, murder, strife, deceit and malice. – Romans 1:28-29
On Feb. 25, 2019, 44 Democrat senators voted down the Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act, which would have required doctors to provide medical care to infants that survive attempted abortion procedures, “to prohibit a health care practitioner from failing to exercise the proper degree of care in the case of a child who survives an abortion or attempted abortion“. These Senators do not want a living, breathing, human being vested with all the rights of a U.S. citizen to receive life saving medical help if the parents and doctors deem the life not worthy of saving. Apparently the pro-choice argument has now moved from the rights of a woman to choose about her own body to even choose the outcome of the fruit of her body. Only time will tell how far these depraved people will carry this argument. Will they someday want to decide the fate of their 1 year-old baby that becomes a burden to them?
While the actions of these people must be condemned by the Christian community, the individuals themselves need our prayer. We should pray that God opens their hearts and minds and that they would repent and enjoy the love of God.
No longer can anybody believe the slogan that abortion is “safe, legal and rare”.
The gruesome records from Kermit Gosnell’s now-shuttered “House of Horrors” abortion business in Philadelphia are readily available online, detailing how women lost their lives and babies were murdered. The evidence overwhelmingly shows that the morbidity and mortality rates of legal abortion are several times higher than that for carrying a pregnancy to term.
Abortion has been made legal since Roe v. Wade and now in New York and a few other states, abortion is legal up to the time of delivery. Pro-death voices are becoming louder and more mainstream from those who support the killing of unwanted babies even after they’re born.
While it’s impossible to get an accurate count, more than 60 million babies have been aborted in America since Roe v. Wade.
