As the abortion fight continues to pervade the American political sphere, there is any number of important factors that both Republicans and Democrats fail to note, or even openly admit, in regards to the hot topic debate! In fact, the Congressional Budget Office announced that today, late-term abortions average ‘one every hour’ in the United States!
Although a child is developed enough to live on his or her own at approximately 23 weeks, Democrats, Planned Parenthood, and left-wing women’s groups are pushing for late-term abortions that occur between 14 and 24 weeks! In other words, they are pushing for the killing of a baby that can live outside the mother, with a functioning brain, heart, and all other organs!
Abortions before 20 weeks are typically performed as an outpatient procedure known as dilatation and evacuation. With dilatation and evacuation, it involves dilating the cervix, typically done with medication to soften the baby’s bodily tissue before extracting it from the womb in pieces! They typically begin with tearing the legs off of the baby with a long toothed clamp, then they tear off the arms for removal, and then they tear the body out in pieces! The head is a bit trickier, as they have to use the toothed clamp to crush the skull into pieces, remove the brown gooey substance (the baby’s brain), and then remove the pieces of skull, one by one! Then, the abortionist takes the pieces of the baby to what Planned Parenthood calls the ‘POC’ room (Pieces of Children) room, to reassemble the child, in order to make sure that they removed the entire baby! If they don’t, it can kill the mother!
After the 20 week period, abortions involve an injection of a medication into the amniotic fluid surrounding the baby, designed to kill the baby, and result in a stillbirth or miscarriage!
The CBO estimates released last week estimated that about 10,000 unborn babies are killed each year in the United States, and all during the late term (20 weeks or later) in pregnancy. That means that an average of 27.4 late-term abortions occurs per day!
Currently, 11 states prohibit late term abortions, after the 20 week period, and 31 more prohibit abortions at some point later than the 20 week period! However, still the CBO and Center for Disease Control (CDC) reveals that…
“Based on data compiled by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), CBO estimates that each year, about 10,000 abortions take place 20 weeks or more after fertilization.”
It is estimated that in the United States, 67% of abortion service providers, including Planned Parenthood performs abortions after 13 weeks, which is in the second trimester, while, 8% of abortions are done at 24 weeks.
Planned Parenthood and other abortion providers continually say that they are fighting for women’s safety, but as these organizations push for late-term abortions, they fail to inform the public and expectant mothers that the possibility of a woman’s death associated with abortion increases with the length of gestation. In fact, an abortion between 16 and 20 weeks’ gestation is 1 in 29,000, while the risk increases to one in 11,000 for abortions after 21 weeks.
BELOW, A FORMER ABORTIONIST DETAILS HOW AN ABORTION IS PERFORMED:
Today, in America and throughout the world, mankind is witnessing what has become a modern-day genocide of the innocents! In fact, while men and women should cherish and protect the innocent, the weak, and the young; instead, much of mankind has turned their backs on those who we are supposed to protect, our precious youthful and innocent babies!
Even a former Planned Parenthood Director Abbey Johnson, who oversaw thousands of abortions said that…
while working at Planned Parenthood, the question she heard thousands of times was “Will my baby feel pain?” Abby was coached by Planned Parenthood to tell the concerned women their child wouldn’t feel any pain until 28 weeks. Abby told the ladies this because she believed it herself.
Then, Abbey, explains the heart-wrenching moment that she knew in her heart, that she could no longer be pro-abortion…
Also, the pro-abortion industry, including Planned Parenthood, has taken another major blow, as new developments have struck a huge blow to claims by pro-abortionists that a fetus feels no pain. In fact, researchers have discovered that the sense of touch is developed by the prenatal brain. In fact, the Medical Express revealed in a new study that…
The development of a sense of touch has been studied by scientists for many years, but how it develops is still unclear. Prior research has shown that once it has developed, it exists as a sort of map imprinted on the cerebral cortex. Some have suggested that a basic map is created in the brain before birth and data points for it are added as newborns develop—sensory input from various body parts is simply added to the map. But now, that view might have to change, as the team in Spain reports evidence that suggests the map is already in place by the time a baby is born.
In their efforts, the researchers used mice to better understand how the sense of touch might develop because mice have what are known as cortical barrels—regions within the cortical layer that are visibly darker when stained. Prior research has shown that the map outlining the sense of touch in mice can actually be seen under a microscope by studying the cortical barrels. Prior research has also shown that brain function such as recognizing and responding to sensory information arises due to electrical signals that stimulate growth of neurons. Thus, to learn more about the development of the sense of touch in mice (at least concerning its whiskers) the researchers studied brain slices at various stages of development to monitor cortical barrel development, and also studied brain waves that have previously been identified as those associated with sensory processing.
In looking at their results, the researchers found that the sensory map created to process the sense of touch was built while the mice were still embryos. And it developed due to signals sent to the cerebral cortex by the thalamus, which also plays a major role in relaying synaptic information throughout the life of the mouse. The researchers suggest that it is likely the same process occurs in humans because “the organization of the cortex is conserved evolutionarily between species.”
In other words, these babies who are being aborted are not simply a blob of tissue, but living breathing human beings, with a beating heart, a well-developed brain, and certainly the ability to feel pain!
The Bible says that we have an obligation to preserve the body and life of other people, and those in danger…
Psalm 82:4 Rescue the weak and needy; Deliver them out of the hand of the wicked.
It even instructs us, that we have a duty to preserve the lives of those who are even trying to, or who are harming themselves…
Proverbs 24:11-12 Rescue those who are being taken away to death; hold back those who are stumbling to the slaughter. If you say, “Behold, we did not know this,” does not he who weighs the heart perceive it? Does not he who keeps watch over your soul know it, and will he not repay man according to his work?
In other words, we have an obligation to not only protect ourselves and our loved ones, but we have an obligation to fight for those who cannot fight for themselves! We have an obligation to fight for the unborn, as they are conceived in the image of God, and they have a right to life, just as those of us who are able to speak up for our own lives, our own safety, and the safety of those we love!
