On November 19, the citizens of Albuquerque, New Mexico will vote on the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Ordinance – a law forbidding abortions past 20 weeks' gestation in the city.
When you consider that Albuquerque is currently the late-term abortion capital of the USA, you can see how next Tuesday's vote is the good in this fight.
Meanwhile, a group of six senators and House representatives is proposing legislation to unravel every pro-life law passed throughout the nation. This is Roe v. Wade on steroids.
Proponents of the Orwellian-titled "Women's Health Protection Act of 2013" include Senators Richard Blumenthal (D-Conn.), Tammy Baldwin (D-Wis.), and Barbara Boxer (D-Calif.) – the last of whom said, "I think that when you bring your baby home, when your baby is born ... the baby belongs to your family and has all the rights."
So it should be pretty easy to see where the evil is.
Today, Live Action released a new video showcasing what goes on at Southwestern Women's Options – the notorious late-term abortion facility that senators like Blumenthal and Boxer would love to protect and promote.
Want to know how much money these so-called "doctors" make from poisoning 25-week babies to death? (Remember: 25 weeks is over six months.) Watch the video.
Want to know how sleazy abortionists use financial and emotional pressure to "sell" abortions to desperate mothers? Watch the video.
As Lila Rose, our president, put it, "this facility is only one of the worst examples of the abortion industry's complete disregard for basic human rights. Babies shot through the heart with poison, mothers left to deliver their dead children in an empty hotel room."
But Planned Parenthood, NARAL, and the politicians they've bought would eliminate every life-saving regulation that hurts Big Abortion's profits. So much for "Women's Safety" – this barbaric bill should be called the "All States Must Fund Destroying Children Act of 2013."
Lila noted that if Cecile Richards, Planned Parenthood's CEO, thought Albuquerque was a winning issue, then New Mexico would be plastered all over Planned Parenthood's fundraising e-mails. But Richards is holding her tongue on this one, because she knows what a PR disaster poisoning babies to death is.
(That won't stop Planned Parenthood from supporting poisoning babies to death, but it will keep Planned Parenthood from talking about it.)
