The Left-wing extremists who have taken over the Democrat Party will soon experience what they fear most: U.S. Supreme Court-imposed limitations on abortions.
You read that right. I’ll explain.
No doubt many readers still remember the nightmare circus created by Democrats during Brett Kavanaugh’s confirmation hearings. The wild, unsubstantiated accusations leveled against him by Sens. Dianne Feinstein, Kamala Harris, Dick Durbin, Cory Booker, and others that he was some serial rapist from high school who drugged women and helped his friends gang-rape them during parties shocked the consciences of most Americans who watched them.
So pathetic and outrageous was the behavior of Democrats that a usually even-tempered GOP Sen. Lindsey Graham of South Carolina was pushed beyond his limits.
These allegations, coupled with Leftist-inspired outbursts in the Senate Judiciary Committee’s chamber and overall Democratic behavior disregarding precedence and decorum was a new low, even for the Donkey Party. Why the outrage?
Because with the addition of constitutionalist Kavanaugh, who was appointed to replace ‘moderate’ Justice Anthony Kennedy, that solidifies the high court’s rightward shift. And with a rightward shift, for Democrats, comes the abject fear that SCOTUS could someday move to restrict or repeal abortion rights.
And when it comes to federal judges — especially Supreme Court justices — abortion is the litmus test for Democrats, who will preserve it at all costs.
That said, recent actions by Democrats at the state government level make it more likely that new abortion restrictions by the Supreme Court will become a self-fulfilling prophecy.
Earlier this month Democrats in New York State shocked the consciences of tens of millions of Americans when they passed, and Gov. Andrew Cuomo signed, legislation that, according to some experts whoâ€™ve read the measure, allows doctors to kill an unborn baby right up to term.
Worse,Â asÂ NewsTargetÂ reports, the legislation also permits non-physicians to perform abortions, thereby dramatically increasing the number of providers who could be available for the procedure.Â
The news site noted:
The bill, named the Reproductive Health Act, uses an overly broad â€œhealthâ€ exception for third-term abortions which many people find repugnant. Even health professionals within the field of obstetrics say thatÂ third-term abortions are never necessary; at that point, the child should just be delivered, not murdered.
Meanwhile,Â Virginia Democratic Gov. Ralph Northam, in a Wednesday morning interview, could not definitely answer whether he opposes a bill in his state that sanctions abortion right up until birth, even suggesting that an infant could be born while the mother and her doctor then discuss what should happen next, which would include killing the newborn,Â The National Review reported.
â€œIf a mother is in labor, I can tell you exactly what would happen. The infant would be delivered. The infant would be kept comfortable. The infant would be resuscitated if thatâ€™s what the mother and the family desired, and then a discussion would ensue between the physicians and the mother,â€ Northam said in aÂ WTOP interview.
Northamâ€™s comments come on the heels of legislation introduced byÂ Democratic Virginia Delegate Kathy Tran earlier this month. According to a description,Â HB 2491Â would repeal the stateâ€™s current restrictions on late-term abortions.
Northam defended Tranâ€™s bill.
â€œThis is why decisions such as this should be made by providers, physicians, and the mothers and fathers that are involved,â€ Northam said. â€œWhen we talk about third-trimester abortions, these are done with the consent of obviously the mother, with the consent of the physician â€” more than one physician, by the way â€” and itâ€™s done in cases where there may be severe deformities. There may be a fetus thatâ€™s non-viable.â€
As a society, we cannot sanction the murder of babies outside the womb and call it “abortion rights” or “healthcare” or “a woman’s right to choose” or a “doctor’s decision.” It’s murder — the purposeful, unjustified killing of another human being — period. And I expect that a pro-life organization or several will sue these states over the procedure in a case that will no doubt be appealed to the highest court in the land.
Here’s why I believe SCOTUS will act to restrict abortion for first time since 1973, when a divided court twisted the logic of the Constitution to ‘find’ a ‘right’ to kill unborn children.
The Supreme CourtÂ Roe v. WadeÂ decision allows women to have the procedure up to the point of fetal â€œviability,â€ a term which is now constantly under debate as neonatal care and technology dramatically improves chances for early birth survival.
Also, per federal statutes, ending a babyâ€™s life after it is born is unlawful. In fact, former abortion provider Dr.Â Kermit GosnellÂ wasÂ sentenced to life in prisonÂ forÂ killing babies either born or leaving them to die after they were born.Â AÂ recently-released filmÂ starring Dean Cain, famous for his role as â€œSuperman,â€ about Gosnellâ€™s practice and trial was largely ignored by the establishment media.
Because of their extremism and ghoulish pursuit of the ‘right’ to kill babies at full term and beyond, the Democrats, ironically, will push the Supreme Court into doing something the party fears most: Place new restrictions on abortions. It will have to happen, lest murder statutes be rendered moot.
And it could just be that Justice Kavanaugh will prove to be the deciding vote.
Let’s hope so. Otherwise, the next step in Democrats’ abortion playbook will be a push to legalizeÂ post-birth abortion, creating a so-called ‘fourth term’ of pregnancy. And that’s a bridge so far beyond how a civilized society ought to function we don’t ever want to cross it.
