Posted on 01/12/2014 7:34:03 AM PST by Kaslin
A group of Vermont state senators have introduced an unfortunate bill that would affirm a womans right to abortion, in an effort to nullify provisions still on the books in the Green Mountain State that criminalize the procedure.
From the proposed legislation:
This bill proposes to repeal Vermont statutes that criminalize: (1) assisting in the performance of an abortion; and (2) advertising about the provision of abortion services. An act relating to decriminalizing the performance of abortions in Vermont and recognizing the right to have an abortion.
As for why the senators put the bill forward, their explanation is painfully misleading:
It should be a public policy goal to enhance the health of all citizens, including women of all ages, and to strengthen individuals and families by encouraging and promoting access to comprehensive reproductive health services, to prenatal support services that help ensure that planned pregnancies remain healthy throughout their entire term, and to safe and legal abortion.
Nothing about abortion enhances health or strengthens families. Quite the opposite. Abortion destroys not just the life of the unborn child, but often affects the physical and mental health of the mother as well.
The anti-abortion statutes that predate Roe v. Wade are unenforceable, yet the pro-choice state senators insist their new bill would serve as an important legislative action in support of a womans reproductive rights as well as help a health care provider to perform an abortion without fear of criminal liability.
Here is the list of Vermont legislators who would rather reinforce Roe v. Wade than focus on more worthy causes:
Tim Ashe (D/P-Chittenden), Christopher Bray (D-Addison), Sally Fox (D-Chittenden), Virginia Lyons (D-Chittenden), Dick McCormack (D-Windsor) and David Zuckerman (P-Chittenden).
A certain election is coming you know what to do.
I thought it was against the law to murder? They’re wanting to make it a right.
"Woe to those who call evil good and good evil,
who put darkness for light
and light for darkness,
who put bitter for sweet
and sweet for bitter.
"Woe to those who are wise in their own eyes
and clever in their own sight." Isaiah 5:20-21
But of course they cannot say that.
So much for the inalienable ... right to life ...
Next to go ... liberty and pursuit of happiness?
How about very-very-very-very-late term abortions for the protestors? They want it for OTHER human beings, why not for themselves?
Put your money where your taped-up mouth is, Girlies!!
If any of them are still being supported by their mothers, their mothers should get to “choose”
Sounds perfect to me
GOD will punish them... HIS way and in HIS time.
Abortion is child murder. Nothing else need be or can be said.
I’m finally beginning to understand it. It’s all about MEEEEE! and the votes they can get today. The burdensome glob of cells can’t can’t throw money into senators’ coffers and by the time the burdensome glob of cells turns voting age, those senators will have retired.
