While Conservatives Rally For Life, Leftists Choose Death

Death

As conservative states continue to enact laws protecting America’s unborn, Democrat-led states are racing to do the opposite. In the last two months, radical abortion-related bills have been introduced in the two Democrat states of California and Maryland. If passed, each bill would defend an array of atrocities. Shockingly, each bill includes protections for “perinatal death.” The term is loosely defined, with some organizations defining “perinatal death” as the death of a baby up to seven days after being born, and other groups counting deaths up to one year after being born as perinatal deaths. Either way, there is absolutely no reason for said protections to be included in any legislation.

California’s A.B. 2223 would shield all entities from civil or criminal liability and penalties for any “pregnancy outcome.” This includes “miscarriage,” “stillbirth,” “abortion,” and “perinatal death.” This means that women who request abortions and those who perform them cannot be punished in any way, shape, or form. These protections also apply to instances of “perinatal death.” As previously mentioned, perinatal death extends days or even weeks beyond a child being born, meaning the legislation shields all parties involved in the death of a child after birth, commonly referred to as infanticide. The bill also amends sections of California’s Health and Safety Code relating to abortions to replace all references to the word “woman” with “pregnant person.” As if the legislation could not get any worse, the bill would protect those who commit self-induced or criminal abortions and ban coroners from investigating allegations of each. To quote the legislation, “This bill would delete the requirement that a coroner hold inquests for deaths related to or following known or suspected self-induced or criminal abortion, and would delete the requirement that an unattended fetal death be handled as a death without medical attendance. The bill would prohibit using the coroner’s statements on the certificate of fetal death to establish, bring, or support a criminal prosecution or civil cause of damages against any person.” A hearing in California’s State Assembly for A.B. 2223 is scheduled for April 5th, and further action will be taken on the bill at a later date in April. A.B. 2223 has been deemed a legislative priority by the California Future of Abortion Council, which is promoted by many prominent Democrat California legislators. This further increases the likelihood of the dangerous bill becoming law. 

Maryland’s S.B. 669 and H.B. 626, titled “The Pregnant Person’s Freedom Act of 2022,” would ban both the investigation and criminal prosecution of all abortions, miscarriages, stillbirths, and perinatal deaths. According to the legislation, “This section may not be construed to authorize any form of investigation or penalty for a person: (1) Terminating or attempting to terminate the person’s own pregnancy; or (2) Experiencing a miscarriage, perinatal death related to a failure to act, or stillbirth.” This implies that instances of babies being born alive but dying days or weeks later can no longer be investigated, and criminal penalties cannot be enforced. The act even goes as far as authorizing anybody that is criminally investigated for a miscarriage, stillbirth, or perinatal death to bring civil lawsuits against the investigators. The legislation would also explicitly deny all rights to Maryland’s unborn and dehumanize them by claiming they are not people. To quote S.B. 669, “Nothing in this section shall be construed to confer personhood or any rights on the fetus.” Lastly, the bill would embrace the radical belief highlighted in California’s legislation that “people” get pregnant as opposed to just women. Maryland State Senator William Smith, the Democrat sponsor of S.B. 669, recently claimed he would remove protections for “perinatal death” from his bill. However, the protections still remain in H.B. 626. These protections are completely unnecessary since Maryland already has “safe haven” rules that protect mothers from criminal or civil penalties if they leave their baby with a “responsible adult” within ten days of giving birth.

The idea of protecting perinatal deaths circulating in California and Maryland sounds eerily similar to a statement that came from former Virginia Governor Ralph Northam in 2019 when he suggested that babies should be allowed to be killed or “aborted” after birth. According to Northam, “If a mother is in labor…the infant would be delivered. The infant would be kept comfortable. The infant would be resuscitated if that’s what the mother and the family desired, and then a discussion would ensue between the physicians & mother.” AMAC has also previously reported on a program at the University of Pittsburgh where researchers harvested organs from aborted newborns while their hearts were still beating. The alarming operations were able to occur due to over $3 million in taxpayer funds being given to the researchers by the National Institutes of Health. Comparable operations are still ongoing, with estimates suggesting that the NIH will spend a combined total of over $173 million on fetal experimentation between 2021 and 2022.

While California and Maryland are the only specific states currently seeking protections for perinatal death or infanticide, the six states of Alaska, Colorado, New Jersey, New Mexico, Oregon, and Vermont, as well as the District of Columbia, have no limits on the time when a woman may obtain an abortion. Therefore, nearly one in ten Americans live in an area that has absolutely zero protection for the unborn or restrictions on their slaughter.

Conversely, conservative-led states are taking a different approach from radical Democrats and are instead unifying to support legislation in favor of life. Throughout the last year, at least four states have enacted legislation that defends the sanctity of human life at its earliest and most precious stages. The two states of Idaho and Texas have instituted “heartbeat” laws barring most abortions after a heartbeat is detected, which typically occurs after six weeks of pregnancy. The two states of Arizona and Kentucky also recently passed bills that outlaw most abortions after 15 weeks of gestation, when the baby already has a heartbeat, brain activity, and gender, as well as all of his or her internal organs, muscles, bones, and limbs. Thus, approximately one in every eight Americans now resides in a state where most abortions are illegal after around six weeks or fifteen weeks. It should be noted that at least one chamber of the state legislature in the three conservative states of Florida, Oklahoma, and West Virginia has also passed legislation that would ban most abortions after 15 weeks. 

As conservatives rally in favor of life, leftists seem to be unifying around death. This is evident by the pattern of radical bills being introduced in Democrat-led states and sane legislation protecting the unborn being ratified in conservative states. To support conservatives in this critical battle, be sure to vote for pro-life candidates across the ballot in the primaries and the November election!

I assume the DemcRat Party has discovered it is easier and quicker to rig illegal immigrants than it is to wait on babies to grow up to voting age???? Ergo, the DemocRats, for that and other disgusting reasons, favor abortion-on-demand.

Leftists choose death, they might want to try choosing their own death. See how they like it. Right now, they seem to not see their own death in the near future for some of them due to age. I guess they think they will live forever. The Constitution is SUPPOSED to protect all lives, but change has happened over many years, especially in the last 60 years, and it’s almost as if there is no Constitution regarding the lives. What has happened to our Supreme Court that they have gotten so far away from our Constitution?

This is no different than the laws in other countries that let Down Syndrome of other children born with deformities die at birth! Dehumanization on the move! Babies, Women, are Seniors next? How about those that are disabled? When are they going to be slaughtered? This is NOT a slope we want to go down! God is shaking his head every day and I’m scared he is going to lift any protection he has from this great country! Sodom and Gomorrah here we come! EVIL!

God is going to hit this world so hard with the tribulation. People who don’t want His ways and seek His forgiveness will be separated from Him forever. He’s already judging us to get us to look up and ask to be saved by Christ Jesus. Picture living in a godless place, Seattle e.g. or worse for eternity. We only have one way to God and that is through Jesus who is “one with the Father”. Jesus says those who love Him obey His commandments. First, love God. Second, love your neighbor as yourself. He also said He didn’t come to do away with the law, the ten commandments, but to fullfill it. God is love, but He also judges. He doesn’t want any to perish, but will only accept those who come through His Son. A lot of people need to start looking up.

Years ago i heard an anti abortion spokeswoman refer to abortion as a sacrament to the left. I thought perhaps she was being inflammatory. No more. As a youngster i thought the Old Testament was irrelevant. Who would sacrifice their kids to molech? Well, now its right before our eyes. Im still struck by the irony, lost on the left, that at the same time infants are killed in utero, thousands of desperate couples try to get pregnant and endure infertility treatments. What a world we live in.

Everything DIMMs are for is pursuing death. Abortion, rampant crime, rampant drug use, ignored rioting, and the whole anti-science LGBTQ agenda. And we all know who loves death and is the father of lies!

Dear God in Heaven! Are we to tolerate the actual, real, out of the womb murder of babies? We are truly Hell on Earth! We must all pray to our Lord for help and relief. I am aghast, beyond aghast and even horrified does not cover it. .

We are in something that is bigger than any of us and which we cannot fight alone. This is about Good vs Evil and without God on our side, we cannot win. Evil is spreading like wildfire, in our schools, our cities, and against life in the womb and now even outside the womb to an innocent baby.

A society cannot survive without God’s grace. Eventually it will collapse. This collapse starts with moral decline.

To see this all happening is simply amazing, astonishing, and really quite unbelievable. This has now reached the level of a living human being offering a child on the altar as a burnt sacrifice. How this can stand up to scrutiny at a higher court is concerning to say the least.

The fall of a country founded as “one nation under God” which now considers itself one nation over God. The scrutiny of the higher court will be the final judgment.

The Constitution protects all persons with due process. Medical science has proven that life is viable and begins long before actual birth. Therefore the solution is to legally define when a “person” becomes one, and from that point on they become constitutionally protected and state laws cannot change that. It’s before birth, not after.

to all those demon rats out there who love this party, vote for this party or run with this party, remember life is a terminal illness. we all die and to all you so called Christians / Catholics you will have to pay dearly when you die for supporting the murder of children and to those who love to foster the lie of being born in the wrong body and support cutting up children’s bodies and drugging them than you will pay as well and dearly. I find it funny that you do not like the death sentence for adults who murder and you will not punish the rapist but you love punishing the innocence one, the child. and to all you blacks screaming about injustice yet you kill your own by this way. and to all you deacons or priest that give these abortion supporter leaders the BODY of CHRIST, than you will have to answer for this as well and it will not be pretty. Sometimes I think you feel all the pain that the baby felt has he/she was being murder over and over and over as the devils laugh away for eternity…….

Just to let you know, Irene, there are many Catholics like me who want Biden and Pelosi excommunicated as well as the Bishops who lined up to congratulate him. Its a disgrace and an abomination. The pope is the worst ever and should have thrown biden out as well. Nobody will listen to us.
