What’s the agenda of those who are pro-abortion? (It isn’t pro-“choice” if the baby doesn’t have a choice.) The passage of a recent Arkansas’ law banning abortion at 12 weeks is telling. The so-called Arkansas Human Heartbeat Protection Act would ban abortions after about 12 weeks when the fetal heartbeat can be detected by ultrasound. By what moral insanity would that not be considered reasonable? If the unborn child has a beating heart, it’s alive and should have the right to live. Right? “NO!” if you are the Center for Reproductive Rights or the American Civil Liberties Union. They want the baby dead, if the mother chooses to kill you, and they have filed suit to stop the Arkansas’ ban. A U. S. District Judge has granted their injunction until a legal challenge can be tried in court.
You may wonder if the Arkansas’ law is unreasonably restrictive, but it’s a lot more liberal than I would countenance. It allows exceptions in a pregnancy resulting from rape or incest (I wouldn’t) and if the life of the mother is truly in danger (I would). It even allows abortion if fetal problems can be detected. And with those lenient guidelines, the pro-abortion crowd still isn’t happy. They want abortion any time, for any reason. So much for making it, in Bill Clinton-speak, “safe, legal, and rare.”
The Arkansas law makes it clear there is no compromise with the pro-abortion left, including the President and his administration. Now, North Dakota may be banning abortion as early as six weeks of pregnancy. Good. We must not let up the pressure until abortion is illegal at all times, everywhere, except when it is a true medical procedure to save the lives of mother and child and only the life of the mother may be saved.
