Are you wondering how you might articulate your utter outrage at what just happened in the U.S. Senate? Here’s what one friend of mine sent.
Dear Senator ________,
I was disappointed but not surprised that you voted against the bill that would have protected live babies born after attempted abortion. If a baby survives an attempted abortion, it is depraved, sick and diabolical to refuse care to a living human being. Democrats claim they want “healthcare for all” but won’t even protect the most innocent and vulnerable.
I am pro-choice up to 3 months, but I cannot fathom how anyone can proudly support murdering a child after birth. At what age does post-birth “abortion” become illegal? If a mother has postpartum depression and kills her six month old baby, will that be OK, too? I’ve heard numerous OBGYN’s convincingly argue that there is no medical necessity for a late term abortion. An emergency C-section could save both baby and mother. If the mother doesn’t want the child after carrying it for 9 months, let someone adopt it. There are MANY people who would love to have a child but cannot. Are you pro-eugenics or pro-infanticide?
Once a child is born, it’s alive. Some people argue that life begins at conception, but if you cannot at least agree that life begins at birth, then where is your moral compass? Where are your priorities? Planned Parenthood got caught trafficking aborted baby parts. Is this really about commanding a higher price for a live baby? Is this about all the products that use fetal tissue? Do you get pay outs from these companies?
Please explain your reasoning, because I do not see how a birthed child, no longer in its mother’s body would still be considered part of that woman’s body. How is murdering a separate being –a living child– the same as “women’s healthcare”? I am very curious to read your response.
