Stop wringing your hands and get to work. It's time to start thinking about the next election cycle in Virginia or your own state. Overturning Roe v. Wade is NOT the only priority. Doing everything possible at the state level to protect the mother and encourage her to seriously consider her actions is imperative!
So what can you do? Pray and then act. Get involved in your state.Write a letter to the editor exposing the Democrats across the country and their murderous agenda. New York isn't the only state to have an extreme law and Virginia isn't the only state without one where Democrats are trying to remove all protections for the mother as well as the baby. So write that letter. Send a donation to a pro-life legislator who's speaking out. Volunteer to campaign for him. Share Gilbert's interview on your Facebook page. Hammer the message of Democrat murderous extremism every chance you get. Silence is not an option if you truly care about God's law and the future of our country (the literal future, our children).
Pro-lifers predicted atrocities in 1973 when seven Supreme Court justices legislated from the bench with Roe v. Wade. We are seeing all the horror stories come to pass...and more: euthanasia, assisted suicide, infanticide.... The culture of death is in blitzkrieg mode. How will you respond?
Consider what the governor of Virginia, a pediatric neurologist, actually said:
“If a mother is in labor, I can tell you exactly what would happen. 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 and the mother.” Governor Ralph NorthamThink about that! Think of the "discussion" that "would ensue." Mom and the doctor look at the living newborn and decide whether or not the infant is worthy of continued life or should be neglected until death. After all, if you withhold care, the baby dies (as would any helpless person refused care) and I doubt a hungry baby would be "comfortable."
In his press conference yesterday Northam doubled down on his statements and accused the Republicans in Virginia of "playing politics" over women's "reproductive rights." He claimed that killing third trimester babies is only done in rare cases for grievous reasons. As I documented yesterday that is a damnable lie. Thousands of late term abortions are done every year on healthy babies for reasons that have NOTHING to do with fetal abnormality or the life of the mother. Listen to this conversation between a woman calling for an abortion at 30 weeks and the conversation with the employees.
So this doctor and facility are willing to kill a 30-week infant because the family has financial problems. That is not an unusual scenario.
There is absolutely NO MEDICAL REASON to do an abortion in the third trimester. (Actually, the vast majority of abortions at any point are done for social reasons.) Babies in the third trimester can be delivered early and live if the mom has a serious medical condition. A friend of my daughter just delivered her little son at less than 24 weeks and he is doing well in the NICU at a North Carolina hospital. Listen to this Ob/Gyn describe the New York bill:
Defend Life! And pray for the conversion of the modern Aztecs. We cannot continue on this barbaric path without consequences. God will not be mocked!
