To my utter disgust (but not to my surprise) Massachusetts is joining the ranks of states anxious to allow woman to abort a child up to the day of birth.
Also to my utter disgust (but also not to my surprise) my state Rep Stephen Hay is a co-sponsor of this bill.
Given the veto proof majorities for Democrats in the house and senate I’d say the chances of stopping this bill are nil even if Governor Baker was inclined to veto it. (If he signs it then under no circumstances should any believing Christian vote for him again, even if it means a Democrat in office forever) however given that this bills passage is almost a certainty I would like to propose an amendment, one that might shock my fellow pro-life supporters.
I propose that an amendment to this bill be included that requires doctors to inform women in labor of their option to abort their child at any time before birth.
Given that the left insists that a woman’s has a right to choose abortion at any time and that said right should be protected at all costs such an amendment would guarantee that every woman who potentially wants to abort a child will be aware of their rights and choice to do so.
Why would I suggest such an amendment? For the same reason why the left would do all it could to stop it. Because it shows abortion for what it is.
We keep hearing the argument that the unborn child isn’t really a child in fact it isn’t really human or a human life, that it doesn’t matter at all unless the mother says so. Nothing would illustrate this lie more than a woman, on the verge of birth being informed that as far as the state of Massachusetts is concerned the child she has carried for months is something disposable.
This bill is legalized murder but my feeling is if you are going to legalize infanticide let it be done so that every single woman understands exactly what this law means.
