I don’t think I ever imagined this country would or could come to this. Never would I have believed the determination of the left to kill babies. Never would I have believed the determination of the left to eliminate all pregnancies. Never did I ever think pregnancy would become a disease that needed to be eradicated.

But it’s here.

As with most of the bizarre issues rendering the country today, it began in the obama era. Back in his pre-Presidential days, he lied about his vote for the Born Alive Infants Protection Act in 2003.

At issue is an Illinois bill in 2003 called the Born Alive Infants Protection Act that Mr. Obama voted against, which was modeled on federal legislation enacted the previous year declaring that in failed abortions resulting in a live birth, the baby must be given normal medical treatment. This was in response to a gruesome practice whereby abortions involving induced labor were resulting in unintended live births – and those infants were simply being left to die. It had passed the U.S. Senate without any dissent.
 
Mr. Obama contended that he “would have been completely in, fully in support of the federal bill that everybody supported,” but that he voted against the 2003 Illinois bill because “that was not the bill that was presented at the state level.” Except that it was.

He was all for killing babies and he brought that with him to the White House and the rest of the country. The state of New York jumped on board, passing a law allowing abortion for any reason whatsoever. Andrew Cuomo and leftists celebrated the law, which allows abortion right up the moment of birth.

Then democrats blocked a Republican bill that was largely modeled after the one obama blocked in Chicago which soiught to save babies born alive:

The Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act would have required that “any health care practitioner present” at the time of a birth “exercise the same degree of professional skill, care, and diligence to preserve the life and health of the child as a reasonably diligent and conscientious health care practitioner would render to any other child born alive at the same gestational age.”

In the same year in Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam casually described how a child born alive could be left to die– if Mom decided she didn’t want the baby after all:

In response, Northam said that a baby born alive could be “kept comfortable” and then “resuscitated if that’s what the mother and the family desired” – the implication being that the baby could be left to die if the family decided they did not want to keep their child.
 
“In this particular example, if a mother is in labor, I can tell you exactly what would happen,” Northam said. “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.”

Now it’s not just babies, it’s gotten to the point that pregnancy itself is a problem. Kamala Harris recently remarked

“Women are getting pregnant every day in America, and this is a real issue.”

As if it’s a disease, like cancer.

Joe Biden has become so rabidly anti-life that he plans to issue a rule demanding that doctors- even pro-life doctors- kill babies or face the loss of employment


Now, Joe Biden’s HHS department released a proposed rule that reinterprets federal law to prohibit discrimination based on the basis of “termination of pregnancy”—an action that could force physicians and hospitals to perform abortions and employers to cover abortions in their health insurance plans. Such a rule would be in direct violation of Title IX that explicitly says it cannot be used to require people to provide or pay for any service related to abortions.

There is no more discussion in this country. You either agree with the fringe left or you’re damned.

With the Supreme Court’s overturn of Roe v. Wade, it is no longer enough to be pro-choice. Indeed, the term “pro-choice” has been declared harmful by the now ironically named “Pro-Choice Caucus.” Today, it seems you must be anti-pro-life to be truly pro-choice — and, across the country, pro-life viewpoints are being declared virtual hate speech.

This one really got to me

On Sunday, almost half of the University of Michigan’s incoming medical school class walked out of a “White Coat Ceremony” to protest keynote speaker Dr. Kristin Collier. Collier was not planning to discuss abortion, but — because she holds pro-life views — students launched an unsuccessful campaign to block her from speaking.

She was boycotted not for the substance of her speech, but for her personal convictions. I wish I knew the names of those petty twits who walked out. Were it up to me I would deny them their MD degrees. Such intolerance of other opinions makes for a solitary minded practitioner- a dangerous one unwilling to seek the counsel of others, many more experienced. As a consumer you do not want any of them treating you or your family.

Jim Harbaugh declared his pro-life beliefs and the pro-death sect seized upon him

In addition to calls for his termination, Harbaugh was accused of being “full of deep seething hatred of women” and “publicly expressing his distaste for women’s rights.” The liberal Palmer Report posted (with thousands of “likes”) that “no one who actively attempts to deny women their most basic rights should ever be allowed to hold a position of influence at a public university … He’s a public employee. Fire his ass.”

Dozens of pregnancy centers across the country have been attacked. Sen. Elizabeth Warren wants them shut down. It gets even worse:

Michigan’s Gov. Gretchen Whitmer (D) vetoed $20 million in funding for groups and advertising offering non-abortion resources and counseling. Such counseling efforts were denounced as “deceptive” attempts to “prey” on women.

As Jonathan Turley says, “Today, it seems you must be anti-pro-life to be truly pro-choice — and, across the country, pro-life viewpoints are being declared virtual hate speech.” To that point, here’s Hakeem Jeffries:

 

If you’re pro-life you are an extreme threat to this country. How depraved does it get?

Life is being cheapened to the point of being worthless. If one can abort a child after birth, why not a month later or ten years later? Or 79 years later?

I sense Soros behind this. The elimination of all American babies and the import of illegals is not a coincidence. How far away are we from pregnancy becoming a crime?
