The abortion lobby, spearheaded by the nemesis of unborn children, Planned Parenthood, is a formidable enemy, considering that it is backed wholeheartedly by the Democrat Party. Any politician that is able to muster the chutzpah to stand up against them has a lot of integrity and courage.
Illinois Congressmen Dan Lipinski and Minnesota Representative Collin Peterson are two of the last of the pro-life Democrats in Congress. They are standing firm against the pressure exerted against them by the abortion lobby.
This past Thursday, they and more than 200 Republican lawmakers called on the Supreme Court to examine the possibility of overturning Roe v. Wade. They asked the Court to uphold a Louisiana clinic regulation that protects women who experience emergency complications.
Though most Democrat leaders have grown increasingly pro-abortion, Lipinski faithfully defends the rights of babies in the womb. His signature on the amicus brief quickly drew flak from abortion activists, including his political challenger Marie Newman, Newsweek reports.
Activist and filmmaker Adam Best blasted Lipinski’s and Peterson’s decision to support the rights of unborn babies as “completely f—— unacceptable,” according to the report. He urged the Democratic Party to reject pro-lifers.
“There should be no room for anti-women’s rights radicals in the Democratic Party,” Best wrote on Twitter.
The Illinois branch of Planned Parenthood, the nation’s largest abortion chain, also denounced the pro-life Democrat on Thursday, according to CBS Chicago. Earlier this year, the billion-dollar abortion chain endorsed his opponent.
Lipinski and Peterson joined 39 U.S. Senators and 166 U.S. House lawmakers in signing the amicus brief. The Louisiana case challenges the U.S. Supreme Court “undue burden” precedent, which has allowed unrestricted abortions for basically any reason up to birth. Roe v. Wade made America one of only seven countries in the world that allows elective abortions after 20 weeks of pregnancy.
The law in question requires abortion facilities to meet similar standards to other medical clinics by requiring that abortionists have hospital admitting privileges for patient emergencies. Abortion activists claim the law is an “undue burden” on women’s access to abortion.
The question I always have to ask is, how long is it going to be before more people wake up to the fact that abortion is a politically correct term that the likes of Planned Parenthood hide behind to disguise that what they’re doing is no less than premeditated second-degree murder for hire?
Does that definition sound too harsh? I couldn’t disagree more. The infant in the womb has his or her body destroyed by whatever means, whether mechanical or chemical, and our modern science now has the tools to be able to watch them recoil and silently scream in pain as their tiny bodies are ripped limb from limb.
This issue (abortion on demand) is the most important plank in the upcoming election. The ONLY candidate in the running who supports pro-LIFE is Donald J. Trump. Any other choice from the Left will facilitate another endless stream of babies being destroyed. I’m convinced that the casual attitude with which so many babies are disposed of as trash will doom our country if we don’t turn away from the practice. President Trump has given his best effort to turn that tide, and we can’t let this opportunity get past us. He MUST be elected, and the Congress must be returned to conservative Republicans if we expect the USA to survive as a nation.
