Ted Cruz Wants to Make Sure You Didnít Miss Brit Humeís Epic Anti-Abortion Rant Tonight
The Blaze ^ | January 23, 2014 | Jason Howerton

Posted on 01/23/2014 2:56:42 AM PST by Cincinatus' Wife

Fox News political analyst Brit Hume made a passionate moral argument against abortion on “Special Report” on Wednesday that just may go viral after Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) uploaded it on his YouTube channel.

Referencing the 41st anniversary of Roe v. Wade, Hume said the Supreme Court decided that a “generalized right to privacy that they basically invented meant that a woman has a constitutional right to snuff out an unborn life — a human being with a beating heart.”

“That’s what a fetus as young as six weeks is,” he added.

Hume expressed shock that, by some estimates, as many as 55 million abortions have occurred since the landmark ruling.

Since 1973, he continued, “science has given us an ever clearer picture of just how much of a baby a fetus is.”

“At 20 weeks, we know now, these tiny creatures can hear, even recognize a mother’s voice. Their toenails are growing and their hearts beat loud enough to be heard by a stethoscope,” Hume said. “The moral case for allowing such beings to be killed grows ever weaker, and it’s advocates resort to evermore absurd euphemisms to describe what they support.”

He mocked pro-abortion advocates for claiming they are just “pro-choice,” that it’s not about killing unborn babies, it’s about “reproductive health.”

Hume praised the “March for Life” protesters who descended upon Washington D.C. on Wednesday, saying they come back every year to remind the country that there is “something deeply false and wrong about all this.”

When Bret Baier asked him where the abortion debate goes from here, Hume said he looks to science to prove more conclusively that fetuses can feel pain, if possible, from the beginning. That would “change everything,” he concluded.

Many of those 50 million would have had children by now.

The number of persons lost is likely more than 65 million.

Economically 65 million more Americans would have kept Social Security solvent and prevented a population vacuum that has brought more than 20 million illegal persons to the USA from south of the border. The consequences of abortion extend beyond the immorality and conviction of conscience, they also create an aging population.

Brit was very good - I was a little taken aback to hear such passion on the issue.

If an abortion isn’t snuffing out a little life, why bother having the procedure?

A baby’s heart starts beating 18 days after conception. A baby is fully formed by 12 weeks and spends the next approx. 6 months growing. The culture of death does not care. I think abortion was the first step toward the Soviet style of country........where religion will be required to go underground in favor of worshiping the Government. Progressive? No. Unconscionable? Yes.

Great job Mr.Hume. We all know how true these statements are when Democrats keep voting against pre abortion counseling and sonograms so the mother can see the actual child they plan on aborting.
Just those two small acts would cut the abortion rate to nothing. The only possible reason to not allow these procedures is sanctioned genocide.

That argument is rather invalid. It assumes that most of the women who have abortions would have gotten pregnant anyway if abortion were not available. There is no evidence of that. Most women who have abortions do so because they made a deliberate decision not to use birth control (for whatever reason). If the Guttmacher Institute is to be believed, 60% to 75% of abortions are committed on women who did not use contraceptives. The number is probably far higher, since Guttmacher Institute has a strong financial interest in abortion rates remaining high (people condemn abortion less if the mother got pregnant as a result of contraceptive failure than if abortion is her primary choice of birth control).

The bottom line is that most babies killed by abortion would never have existed in the first place if abortion were not legal.

I think you’re right. We are so far down the road, pain wouldn’t mean a thing to these ghouls. Did it matter to pro-abortionists that Gosnell’s female patients were in agony?

Sadly, you are correct.

I've seen many pro-aborts on message boards expressing their love of pain and death in abortion. If a woman is forced into an abortion, they are gleeful. The fact that the fetus feels pain brings them joy. They revel in the wanton destruction of human life. If a woman expresses regret over having an abortion, they'll say something callous like, "I bet you were glad you were able to have it at the time, weren't you?"

Where we can make in-roads is by educating young women. Hammer into their heads that the abortion industry loves when they decide to use abortion for birth control, because it means significant industry profit at their expense. Hammer into their heads that no abortionist cares about them or their health--the fact that abortion causes future pregnancy loss, premature birth, sterility, and increase in the rate of breast cancer is never disclosed by any abortionist. Hammer into their heads that any abortionist who tells them that the fetus is not alive or that it cannot feel is flat-out lying to them--the brain starts to develop 3 weeks after conception, and by the time the mother learns she is pregnant, all organs are formed and the brain is functioning in its role of master controller of the body. Hammer into their heads that they empower themselves by exercising their right to choose to not get pregnant.

Talk about invalid.

Your conclusion is so faulty, that is based on your first premise {supposition} that MOST women would not have gotten pregnant if legal abortion were not available.

Unknowable.

There will always be abortion, legal or not, in America or not, in state by state or not.

The great unknown, unknown.

While I find abortion abhorrent (each life a once in a universe event), these statistics may illuminate the reasons for continued governmental legality.

    52            18                 9

Our government has a vested interest in keeping the abortion mills grinding out there grim product.

Speculation on your part but real anecdotal evidence on my part. I have two half-sisters born in ‘57 and ‘60 that were put up for adoption just after they were born. Both had 3 children all now out of the nest.

Roe was heard in ‘73. Likely my two half-sisters would have been aborted if Roe had preceded them.

I am glad they are in the world. And I am glad to have six more nieces and nephews.

This is a good commentary by Mr. Hume. He says near the end, "...if it could be shown that a fetus experiences pain [then] support for abortion would crumble..." in this nation.

Well, even according to this paper, much less others cited by pro-life groups, there is clear, undeniable evidence that at least after 26 weeks gestation and probably down to 24, and possibly as low as 18, the baby feels pain.

So we already have such evidence Mr. Hume, but I don't see support for abortion "crumbling" anytime soon.

We truly live in an evil world, and quite frankly an evil country anymore. Where evil is good and good evil. Pray hard, it's our greatest weapon and probably our only one now.

Good for Brit.

I guess he means that the pro-life position would have a more compelling psychological appeal, and not that it's OK to kill people who can't feel pain.

May God bless the faithful souls who freeze in the January icy weather in D.C. every year to witness to the world that the Supreme Court of the United States of America approved the killing of 55 million people, far more than Stalin and Hitler combined.

When the members of this court, and all who support this murder of God’s children, appear before God, the true Supreme Judge, what excuse will they give? Everyone knows the product of conception is a live human being. Giving it the term “fetus” doesn’t change the sin involved in the murder of the unborn.

I'm going to get flamed for this, but...here we go again. Brit was one of the ones just recently looking askance at Tea Party conservatives. Elections are coming up, and the GOPe types who are up for election, and their supporters, are going to start grandstanding about basic conservative issues, upon which they never do anything once they get re-elected. But they do push fast and furiously for things like amnesty, which comservatives don't want. They bore down on Ted Cruz when he stood up for conservatives, instead of backing him and not funding CommieCare. It's like, listen to what the mouth says, ignore what we've actually done (and in some cases, like McCain, actually said, against conservatives).

Someone else needs to take up the banner and speak the truth about those who most vehemently support abortion -

not the “pro-aborts”, but the “HAD-aborts”.

I think you’ll find that the more vehement someone is about “pro-choice”, the more likely they are to have had an abortion or to have urged someone close to them to have one.

This truth needs the veil ripped right off of it and exposed.

At the same time, deliver the message that there is divine forgiveness for those who are repentant, but nothing but wrath for those who seek to justify themselves.

I have no problem with declaring abortion to be what it is: murder and infanticide.

One thing that I've never understood about this opinion is the conservative hostility against a right to privacy. Where the hell else does a right to be "secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects" if not from a right to privacy? The Federalists argued against the adoption of the bill of rights because (among other things) they feared that by listing several specific enumerated rights, that others that naturally accrue to you by virtue of your having been born human would be effectively destroyed because "they aren't enumerated". This is the primary driver for the 9th and 10th amendments, which as we've seen from history might as well not exist. It seems their fear was justified.

Of course, the Anti-Federalists were right as well. We've seen what has happened in other english-speaking nations that do not have written constitutions to back up their rights. Does anyone really believe we'd be able to acquire firearms at all if it weren't for the 2nd amendment?

I have no problem whatsoever with a "right to privacy", because the fact of it seems self evident. It is the extension of infantacide to be encompassed by this right that I object to.

It’s not as if most of them are “true believers” in conservatism, the way a good many on the left are true believers in their leftism of whatever flavor. As soon as they thought the winds were blowing from the left, thanks to Obozo’s election and re-election, they jettisoned any “conservative principles” like so much extra weight dragging them down. They don’t even fight the corruption in our elections, which ought to show them that this leftism hasn’t swept the entire country. Instead they just go along and get along-they’re getting theirs, why stick their necks out? Unless it’s to join the left in excoriating a real conservative in their ranks, rocking their comfortable little rowboats?

There can’t be any doubt that abortion availability has caused more “couplings,” thus more pregnancies, than might have occurred without such abortion availability. But is that the point? The FACT is that, because of abortion availability, 1) an actual number (55 million?) of human lives were terminated, and 2) some extrapolation of that number (15 million, or even 110 million or more) in succeeding generations is more than logical.

But, to be more precise, it isn’t merely abortion-availability that raises the number of abortions; it’s the availability of contraception and the culture of materialism and consequence-free sex that led to the inevitability and eventual availability of abortion.

And I don’t think “new technology” is going to change that.

I think it’s because ‘right to privacy’ has been used as an excuse to justify abortion, forcing same-sex marriage on the populace, and other smaller issues. While meanwhile, the people touting a ‘right to privacy’ are eagerly supporting the NSA and its massive domestic spying program.

Well, sort of......

Sosh Security was NOT POSSIBLE to keep solvent, it was always a ponzi scheme and would have eventually gone belly up. It was just a matter of how long it would last. Yes, it would have lasted longer.

Ditto the illegals. They come because they are allowed to, plus they undercut our normal labor prices and live like kings compared to what they had. Abortion had little to do with them coming.

I disagree. When social security started there were 14 workers to every pensioner. Now there are only 2 to 3 workers for every social security recipient. 65 million Americans that are missing would surely have helped this ratio.

Ditto the illegals. They come because they are allowed to, plus they undercut our normal labor prices and live like kings compared to what they had. Abortion had little to do with them coming.

I disagree also on this. It is true that there have always been illegals present in the USA. The question is not one of whether illegals exist but to what degree. For example, which is tolerable? 500,000 illegals or 20,000,000 illegals?

Illegals take up a lot of jobs, construction jobs, landscaping jobs, restaurant jobs, janitorial jobs as well as agricultural jobs, meatpacking jobs, light assembly and manufacturing jobs and packaging jobs.

Many of the jobs that illegals take would not be available to them if 65 million American lives had not been discarded like trash.

Fact: In 2010 more Mexicans were returning to Mexico than were coming in because the job market had fallen so severely.
