Freedom of Choice Act

Back in April, 2007, the Supreme Court decided that it was within the Constitutional authority of the State to make partial birth abortions illegal. Partial birth abortions are those in which a baby is partially removed from the mother’s body, and then killed! (Partial birth abortion is really just infanticide by another name).

The ink had hardly dried on this Supreme Court decision when the Democratic Congress drafted the “Freedom of Choice Act” (S1173, HR 1964) which says that “A government may not--(1) deny or interfere with a woman's right to choose-- (A) to bear a child; (B) to terminate a pregnancy prior to viability; or (C) to terminate a pregnancy after viability where termination is necessary to protect the life or health of the woman; or (2) discriminate against the exercise of the rights set forth in paragraph (1) in the regulation or provision of benefits, facilities, services, or information.”

Aside from the fact that this bill prohibits the government from preventing the killing of babies, another problem is that the bill seems to prohibit the government from even regulating the abortion industry. This is a serious problem because abortion providers have been accused of egregious health code violationssome women have died—and there are charges that child rapes (e.g. Connecticut, Ohio, California) are even being covered up.

Clearly if the killing of babies is going to continue, it must be regulated, if not for the life of the unborn baby, then at least for the safety of the mothers and for the protection of child rape victims.

So who in their right mind would sponsor such a bill? Well, one of the co-sponsors is none other than Hillary Clinton. Democrats would fight to the death to protect a known terrorist from waterboarding, but don't bat an eye about killing a helpless innocent baby like the one at the right.

(The picture on the right is a 3D image of a baby in the womb only 12 weeks after conception).

It seems quite nice to me that there are people in America that want to legalize murder of the TRULY most vulnerable people.
