Rep. Nadler: Post-Five Month Abortion Ban ‘Morally Outrageous’
Cybercast News Service ^ | June 18, 2013 - 3:45 PM | Elizabeth Harrington

Posted on 06/19/2013 3:48:35 AM PDT by Olog-hai

Rep. Jerrold Nadler (D-N.Y.) said Tuesday it is “morally outrageous” to ban abortions after five months of pregnancy.

“It is morally outrageous, frankly,” Nadler said about the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act (H.R. 1797), a bill that would ban abortions 20 weeks post-fertilization, or five months into pregnancy.

“Here we go again,” he said. “Every single year we have to go through the same nonsense with the same morally presumptuous, morally arrogant attitude that we know better. ‘We know better than women and their doctors. We know better about their health care. We know better about their moral choices in very personal decisions.’” …

Nadler said Republicans pushing the bill are “morally arrogant people” who have “decided that their moral outlooks are more important” than a woman’s health. …

Dismembering a baby...the moral, constitutional thing to do.

Isiah 5:20 Woe to you that call evil good, and good evil: that put darkness for light, and light for darkness: that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter.

Does he support abortion up until the child is old enough to attend public school?

Now what Nadler’s moral high ground actually is, he certainly never makes clear.

His 'high ground' supports Kermit Gosnell and his late term abortions.

Now that is truly 'outrageous'.

I doubt Nadler knows the meaning of moral.

He certainly doesn’t know the meaning of gluttony.

He considers Gosnell and his ilk as “doctors”
I guess Mengele also was a “doctor” so who are we to judge his work

THAT is a moral void

I suppose Nadler would support abortion up until the time the fetus’ brain is fully developed, since the fetus can’t possibly be considered human before then.

By that standard, abortion should be legal up until about 309 months after conception.

I agree.

Abortion at any time during human gestation is outrageous.

IamConservative said politicians pushing *fill in the blank* are “arrogant people” who have “decided that their outlooks are more important”

Taken out of context, what Nadler said is how I feel about everything extra-constitutional that goes on in DC. In context, I would agree as well. Government/Politicians should not be involved in medical care. If an individual chooses to get an abortion and a Doctor provides it, they will have to answer their maker on judgment day.

Nadler somehow believes that as soon as someone becomes pregnant their judgement is automatically beyond reproach and their morality is automatically pure. Which makes his existence all the more baffling.

Nadler must not have heard his idol Obama say, “If we could only save one child.” Oh, wait. I guess that only applies to guns and not abortion.

“morally presumptuous, morally arrogant attitude that we know better”

How dare anybody say that it’s wrong to kill your baby.
Who are we to say anything negative about reaching up inside a woman and cutting her little baby into pieces?
I mean if that’s what she wants we should be cool with it, right?
/s

I don’t understand people who are actually offended that someone has a problem with baby killing.
And you know what?
I’m glad I don’t.
I would have to be pretty empty inside to even begin to understand that level of craziness.

If carving-up unborn babies because they’re inconvenient is not wrong, then nothing is wrong.

Think of all the people who could be adequately nourished on the calories that he needs to consume to maintain his weight.

A young woman I’ve known since she was a child had a difficult pregnancy. At 19 weeks, complications occurred. In order to save the baby, she was placed in a hospital bed where she remained for two weeks. The baby was okay, but had not formed the spinal column totally when she went in. Progress reports on her were all 50%. Her and the baby were physically ok, but the problem was that her body wanted to go into labor. I’m no doctor so don’t know all the details.

Long story short, they had to allow her to have the baby...no more waiting. The baby was born at 22 weeks at 1.8 lbs. That baby is now close to 5 lbs and doing great.

The bull$hit we hear from these culture of death politicians disgusts me. A baby is a baby is a baby...ALWAYS...from conception to death ITS A HUMAN PERSON. Neither a mother, father or any other entity has the right to murder that baby.

This culture we live in here in the USA is now PAYING for its crimes. If the prevailing culture can easily accept murdering innocent helpless babies in the womb, it can allow for any IMMORAL crimes.

The IMMORALLITY, mister fat body, is coming from you and your entire Democrat party.

Nadler is the same kind of Democrat who, 160 years ago, would have bloviated that whether or not to own slaves was between a man and his accountant, and any sort of restriction on that “right” was “morally repugnant”.

Mister Nadler, it’s still the killing of a human being. It’s murder at any age. What’s moral about killing?

“Morally” outrageous? Really? I thought liberals were the ones who said we shouldn’t “legislate morality.” Now he wants to make moral arguments about laws? I guess liberals just hate science now.

It’s quite encouraging that Mr. Nadler doesn’t want legislators to assume that “government knows best,” though. As a result, I’m sure we can count on his vote to dismantle, for example, Obamacare.

On a purely pragmatic side, we're told that we absolutely need those millions of (illegal) immigrants to bolster our economy.

Well, then, what about those millions of children that Democrats have butchered to death?

The reason so many Americans endorse, even applaud, abortion is that they see it as the “price” for “sexual freedom”.

Because a rape victim typically waits 5 months before she is repulsed at the idea of carrying her attacker’s baby, right?

These pigs play on emotion but don’t care at all for the victims of rape and abuse.

Obama is running guns to narco-terrorists in Mexico and to Al Qaeda “rebels” in Syria and we are supposed to believe that he gives a damn about gun violence.

Now, now. We’re not allowed to make fun of Nadler’s girth because he is a good Democrat.

We can make fun of Chris Christie in that regard, because he’s an evil Republican, in spite of his cozying up to Obama and the Clintons. Obama and the Clintons are just using him, whether he knows it or not.

Slaughtering a baby is morally outrageous.

Jerrold "The Hutt" Nadler is also morally outrageous.

‘We know better than women and their doctors. We know better about their health care. We know better about their moral choices in very personal decisions.’” …

Isn’t this the ACTUAL mission statement of Obamacare? With Obamacare, their entire argument regarding abortion is null and void. The government now owns our physical beings and can now dictate whatever it deems to be “for the common good” at any given time. The government can MANDATE abortions (that baby with downs is too expensive) or they can OUTLAW abortion (we need more SSIP payers) with the stroke of a pen.

In addition, Obamacare MANDATES a federal database for all medical records, therefore “pricacy between a patient and doctor” has been eliminated. Roe didn’t “legalize abortion,” instead it established that “privacy.” Obamacare legislatively nullifies Roe!

Idiot dems gave me a tool to hammer their preferred method of making sacrifices to their government god.

Or later if they register as a Dem. Clearly, given their lack of intellectual effort their brains take much longer to develop, if ever.
