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.”

http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2017/10/03/house-votes-on-20-week-abortion-ban-with-trump-white-house-support.htmlThe measure, if enacted into law, would allow the procedure after 20 weeks in the case of rape, incest or to save the life of the mother and would not penalize women. 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.

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.

Shafeeq Sheikh, doctor convicted of rape, should be in jail. He got probation instead.

Shafeeq Sheikh doctor convicted of rape should be in jail He got probation instead

Shafeeq Sheikh raped a heavily sedated patient while working at the Baylor College of Medicine. After a rape kit matched his DNA, the jury convicted him of 2nd degree sexual assault with a maximum punishment of 20 years in prison. For whatever reason, the jury decided to give him 10 years probation instead.

Indian-American Doctor Convicted For Raping Patient Won’t Serve Jail Time

https://www.ndtv.com/indians-abroad/indian-american-doctor-shafeeq-sheikh-convicted-for-raping-patient-wont-serve-jail-time-1903083Sheikh will have to register as a sex offender. Unlike most states and the federal government, Texas grants juries the power to set criminal punishments.

The punishment has surprised defense attorneys, disappointed law enforcement and raised concerns from a victims advocacy group, according to media reports.

The jurors had recommended the sentencing, to which visiting Senior District Judge Terry L Flenniken was required to follow by law, according to local media report.

Generally, I like the way Texas handles criminal sentencing. Every now and then, justice is not served and this is clearly one of those cases. Here is a victim who has been permanently changed, having been raped by someone she should have been able to trust in a place where she should have felt safe. He is a predator who the victim believes has committed similar crimes before.

Violent criminals must be punished. While the maximum term may have been too much, to not serve at least a decade in jail after what he did is sickening.

ICE gets media beating for taking illegal immigrant into custody over Mexican homicide warrant

ICE gets media beating for taking illegal immigrant into custody over Mexican homicide warrant

It’s the type of story the media craves. An illegal immigrant, Joel Arrona-Lara, who “hasn’t done anything wrong” was detained by ICE agents while transporting his pregnant wife to the hospital. She ended up having to drive herself the rest of the way before delivering their son.

The spin is predictable. They skim over the fact that he has an arrest warrant in Mexico for homicide while putting all the focus on his wife’s dilemma. They even attempt to cast doubt on the warrant because the lawyer for the family says he couldn’t find a record of the warrant. This last part is most peculiar because it would be simple for a major media outlet to confirm the existence of the warrant. They did, of course, but they won’t report that when they have a better quote from the lawyer denying its existence.

Eventually details will emerge about the warrant, but not until the media inflicts as much damage as possible on ICE and anyone in favor of legal immigration being the proper way to enter the country.

Here’s the story. If you click through, you’ll even get a link at the bottom to the family’s new GoFundMe page:

ICE Detains Man Driving Pregnant Wife To Deliver Baby, Says He Is Wanted For Homicide In Mexico

https://losangeles.cbslocal.com/2018/08/18/joel-arrona-detained-by-ice-san-bernardino-driving-wife-to-deliver-baby/Her husband Joel Arrona-Lara was driving his wife to the hospital for a scheduled Cesarean section Wednesday afternoon when they had to stop to get gas. That’s when their car was approached by two SUVs. Maria said they were officers with Immigration and Customs Enforcement.

The mother of five was then asked to show her identification and complied. When the agents asked Arrona-Lara, the couple said he didn’t have the ID on him, but that they lived nearby and could go get it for them. The agents then asked Arrona-Lara to exit the vehicle, searched the car for weapons, and put Arrona into custody, leaving Maria alone at the gas station.

My take

There’s no doubt the circumstances surrounding all of this are unfortunate. Pregnant wives should not have to drive themselves to the hospital for a scheduled C-section. On the other hand, suspected murderers shouldn’t be entering the country in the first place. That point won’t be mentioned by mainstream media.

ICE has a responsibility to take people like Arrona-Lara into custody so it can be determined whether or not they should be deported. There may have even been a certain degree of leeway given had there been no records other than his status as an illegal immigrant, but being a suspected murderer with an arrest warrant took away any chance at leeway. The ICE agents did the right thing.

As a legal immigrant, I have no sympathy for those who cheat the system and break our laws. Blaming the ICE agents for doing their job correctly in order to keep us safe is the type of insanity mainstream media loves to sell us.

The real reason Ocasio-Cortez is afraid of the press

The real reason Ocasio-Cortez is afraid of the press

For at least the second time, reporters were barred from covering an event featuring Socialist Democratic darling Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. The campaign’s reason: we want attendees to feel comfortable since there’s so much national press covering her.

This is an absolutely ridiculous excuse, of course. Nobody goes to a campaign event without knowing the press will (should) be there. It doesn’t make them less comfortable and may actually give some a sense of security knowing the answers to their questions will be judged by more than the audience at hand. That’s one of the reasons for the press in the first place, to give information about an event to people who cannot attend.

Instead, the press is getting another roadblock:

Ocasio-Cortez bans press from covering campaign event

http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2018/08/17/ocasio-cortez-bans-press-from-covering-campaign-event.htmlAlexandria Ocasio-Cortez, the Democratic socialist star running for New York’s 14th congressional district, is facing criticism after her campaign banned journalists from covering a town hall meeting with voters this week.

The Queens Chronicle, a local news outlet, reported that the campaign for the 28-year-old progressive prevented reporters from attending a campaign event in Corona on Sunday, even though it was open to the rest of the public. The campaign reportedly barred reporters from a prior event as well.

It’s conspicuous that a local publication was barred because it runs contrary to the narrative the campaign is trying to sell. So why is she being hidden from reporters at these types of events?

My Take

It’s clear that her exposure is her best friend and worst enemy. Being talked about is a politician’s best friend on the campaign trail, but it also offers a risk of failure. This is most common in events like the town hall meetings she is holding because she’ll be forced to think on her feet.

What if she can’t think on her feet? What if her answers when placed in an unscripted situation the type of answers many would expect from an inexperienced socialist?

Until she’s ready to handle the pressure of having press cover these events, she won’t be ready to hold public office at this level. The House of Representatives isn’t for people who need to be protected from their own answers.
