Good Trump: White House supports 20-week abortion ban bill

Published

on

President Donald Trump is supporting the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act. Bob Goodlatte, Congressman out of Virginia is one of the primary sponsors.

“Science has proven that at 20 weeks, the baby is more than just tissue or a clump of cells,” Goodlatte said. “Scientific studies into the neurological development of babies have demonstrated that by the second trimester, an unborn child has developed organs and an advanced brain structure. These babies hear music, respond to human voices, and, most importantly, they can feel pain.”

In May, Trump reinstated the ban on the use of federal tax dollars for international abortion services. The ban was first instituted by President Reagan.

The statement says the bill “would promote a science-based approach to unborn life, as recent advancements have revealed that the physical structures necessary to experience pain are developed within 20 weeks of fertilization.”

However, it would criminalize abortions after 20 weeks and punish abortion providers with a maximum five-year jail sentence.

The landmark 1973 Supreme Court case Roe v. Wade protects women’s right to have an abortion. However, more than a dozen states now ban them after 20 weeks.

Reactions

Planned Parenthood’s ghouls are panicking.

Final Thoughts

While I applaud Goodlatte in what he said, we need to change our tune when it comes to fighting abortion. We should not let Roe Vs. Wade, the pro-abortion feminists, or even the women in our lives (not all of them) intimate us into trying to outlaw pre-born baby murder altogether. If you admit that the pre-born have bodily organs, hear music, responding to the human voices and especially if the mother sings, and above all feel pain; then we should make the argument that the unborn baby is a “Person.” If we fight and eventually give personhood back to the unborn child, then there is no need for these bills to restrict abortion, but leave “and then you can kill the baby” option.

It is time to change the abortion strategy and speak out against abortion and actually do something that will make it a criminal act. The Christian Church (they must lead the charge for others to follow) must do more than speak out with their signs (like “Abortion Kills Children”), support Pro-Life Pregnancy Centers and/or organizations like Save The Storks. Make no mistake, we should continue to do the above things, but its only half of the battle. The other half of the abortion battle is individual Christians rising up and demanding that our Government stop murdering babies in womb, and demand that they give the preborn their personhood back.

When a government strips a group of people of their personhood, it gives them a phony license (at least in the eyes of God) to abuse and eventually murder that group of people. Justice Harry Blackmun did get Roe v. Wade wrong, but he left a loophole in that decision that could dismantle his decision altogether–that being Blackmun’s own doubts about the personhood of the unborn child.

Israel appoints first Christian ambassador

Israel appoints first Christian ambassador

Most appointed bureaucrats and representatives in Israel are Jewish. Cultural diversity has been on the rise in the Jewish state and is starting to be reflected in government as they appointed their first Christian Arab ambassador.

George Deek will soon be Israel’s ambassador to Azerbaijan. It is an important relationship for Israel as the Muslim majority nation is one of Israel’s largest arms markets. They also supply about 40% of Israel’s oil.

“We are proud of his appointment, which perfectly symbolizes the integration of Israelis from different backgrounds in the representation of the state,” said Foreign Ministry spokesman Emmanuel Nahshon.

Deek is currently a senior adviser to Director-General Yuval Rotem. His diplomatic experience is wide with stints serving the ministry in Norway and Nigeria.

Joni Ernst warns of challenges to push President Trump’s agenda after losing the House

Joni Ernst warns of challenges to push President Trumps agenda after losing the House

Senator Joni Ernst (R-IA), the newly elected Republican Senate Conference vice chairman, pointed out two things that are going to be big challenges over the next two years: border security and making the tax cuts permanent. Both centerpieces of President Trump’s agenda will be difficult to achieve now that Democrats control the House of Representatives.

Republicans were able to get the tax cuts they wanted, but without control of the House it will be nearly impossible to make them permanent in the next two years.

They were unable to get border security pushed forward in the first two years of the administration despite having control of the House and the Senate during that stretch. Most notably, they failed to make significant progress towards building a border wall between Mexico and the United States.

With Democrats controlling the House, getting it done now will be nearly impossible.

My Take

It’s indefensible that Republicans didn’t do more for border security when they had the chance. Two years is plenty of time to push through legislation, but their focus on three failed Obamacare repeals drew their attention away.

Don’t get me wrong. Obamacare repeal is extremely important and arguably the reason they were able to win in 2010-2016. But it’s failure is no excuse for delaying border security measures. Now, they’re delayed indefinitely.

In those rare periods when a party controls the House, Senate, and White House, they need to pack all the legislation they believe America needs. Republicans ignored the border and now Americans will pay the price.

Florida update: Rick Scott almost certain to win

Florida update Rick Scott almost certain to win

By now, Rick Scott should be transitioning into the Senate and Bill Nelson should be looking for a new job. Instead, we’re having to wait a few more days until it all gets sorted out in the election-challenged state of Florida.

The good news for Scott, the current Republican governor, is that when the dust settles, he will be declared the winner.

Over 4,000 ballots are in bad-signature limbo, meaning they are currently being rejected over signatures that do not match what’s on record in 45 Florida county election offices. No word on how many ballots were rejected in the 22 other Florida counties.

Currently, Nelson trails Scott by around 12,500 votes.

With half a dozen lawsuits crossing the state over every voting issue imaginable right now, there will be legal proceedings that go well beyond the election’s final results. As it stands now, we won’t get those final results until a manual recount. The state’s threshold following a machine recount is .25%. Scott’s lead is currently at .14%.

My Take

It’s better to get elections results right than to get them swiftly. Both sides have used legal maneuvers to promote their causes, and while this can be an annoyance to voters while forcing the rest of the nation to collectively scratch our heads, it’s imperative that they see this all the way through to the end.

Republicans are wrong to be in a hurry to certify results because in such a close race, we as Americans should hope every valid vote is counted and every invalid vote is rejected. They’re in a hurry because there’s nothing to gain for the party by prolonging a race they’ve won. It’s understandable, but misguided.

Democrats are wrong on multiple levels. First, it’s becoming more and more clear that someone, whether it be election officials like Brenda Snipes, secret groups with ballot access trying to cheat, or a combination of the two, is trying to tip the scales in favor of Democrats. Second, some of their delay techniques and legal maneuvers won’t do anything to change the election results but are intended to taint the GOP wins. Third, their attacks through the media on Republicans, including Scott and governor-elect Ron DeSantis, have been unnecessarily brutal.

While it’s very likely Rick Scott will be declared the winner… someday… this latest series of incidents highlights two things: Florida’s election incompetence and forces working on behalf of Democrats to steal elections any way they can.
