This week, a very important ban on abortion failed, missing the deadline by just minutes. But wait, most social media will allow you to believe this was a huge fail! Yet that isn’t the whole story. This ban would have prevented all abortions after 20 weeks, when a baby feels pain, and would require doctors to have admitting privileges into hospitals.
This is what passed!
*Breaking news! Oh, what amazing grace of Jesus. We have won! The 5th Circuit Court of Appeals has temporarily overturned the injunction put on part of the Texas prolife bill! Now ALL FOUR parts are to be enacted immediately! More than a dozen abortion clinics will now not be able to operate! Final hearing will be in January. So today in Texas, a third of the abortion doors have closed. Women will have to reconsider their options and babies are being saved! What victory we have in this! (Updated November 1st, 2013)
In addition, it requires abortionists to follow FDA rules for administering abortion drugs. There was an estimation that nearly half of the state of Texas’s abortion clinics would have been closed due to holding up to these qualifications.
Let me speak this in layman’s terms for you since Planned Parenthood is solely interested in the health and care of women first and foremost.
(Don’t let that fool you. They are only concerned with doubling and increasing their abortions yearly for profit. Just ask Abby Johnson. http://www.abbyjohnson.org/). This bill that wasn’t passed, is continuing to allow doctors that ARE NOT allowed to practice in a hospital, to keep on performing high risk and dangerous abortions on young women. I don’t know about you, but I believe any doctor touching and working on my body better be highly trained, professional, and worthy of the job to keep me safe and protected.
“Blocking this law only puts vulnerable women in great danger,” said Anna Higgins, director of the Center for Human Dignity at the Family Research Council. “We are very disturbed that a judge would partially block a law that is grounded in the latest science and common sense.”
Wendy Davis. Texas State Senator. Known as a woman of strength in her back brace to help her stand comfortably during her 13 hour filibuster, “abortion barbie”, and fashion sense of her hot pink shoes. What a woman. So elegant. So graceful. So loving. What admiration I have for her to speak so long about
killing babies as a right, I mean Woman’s Rights. Wendy Davis spoke on and on and on for so long, that the clock ticked and time expired to pass the bill.
She even gained our President’s support. President Barack Obama tweeted Tuesday night: “Something special is happening in Austin tonight. #StandWithWendy”. Do you support Wendy’s fight for death and the support from our President that tweets about “something special”?
Yeah, this picture below sure is something special.
Then let me ask you Senator and President, why isn’t this picture so special?
But Pro-Killers, if that 24 week old baby aborted doesn’t excite you yet, maybe it will that it isn’t over yet. Texas Attorney General Greg Abbott is expected to appeal. Both for Texas and Pro-Life activists, the fight is far from over. Appealing in the 5th Circuit Court of Appeals could take months. The restrictions are on hold for now, but aren’t expected to stay that way.
As David Freddoso put it, Wendy Davis can now say, “When the moment came to stand up for smashing the life out of a baby 6 months into pregnancy, I was up to the task.” This is not an accomplishment of which she should be proud.
Texas isn’t alone. In less then a month, Albuquerque will be the first city in the country with the opportunity to vote to ban late-term abortions starting at 20 weeks of pregnancy. New Mexico is one of 15 states that uses taxpayer money to fully fund abortions. In 2011, taxpayers funded 1,786 abortions through state Medicaid to the tune of over 1.1 million dollars.
A recent undercover investigation was recorded due to the upcoming vote on late-term abortion. Watch here:
Also known as the “MOLD” Technique-Stands for the four products employed in the abortion process: Misoprostol, Oxytocin, Laminaria, and Digoxin.
Currently, this late-term abortion process is in use in pregnancies as late as 35 weeks at:
Southwestern Women’s Options in Albuquerque, New Mexico
Germantown Reproductive Health Services in Maryland
Boulder Abortion Clinic in Boulder, Colorado
Pro-Choice Medical Center in Los Angeles, California.
Other abortionists also use this process in the second and third trimesters but are less open about it.
The Induction abortion takes 3-4 days to complete. On the first day the woman is given an ultrasound to determine the gestational age of her baby. Then, with the aid of the ultrasound to guide the abortionist, a lethal dose of the heart medication Digoxin is injected into the baby’s heart or into the amniotic fluid directly through the woman’s abdomen. (Potassium chloride is infrequently substituted for Digoxin.) Digoxin gives the baby a fatal heart attack. This is an off-label application of the drug, which was originally developed and approved as a treatment for heart disease. In some cases, the injection can be made vaginally instead of through the abdomen.
This syringe to the left is one that is placed into a baby’s heart, possibly feeling like a heart attack.
Those who have experienced massive heart attacks, describe them as extremely painful and frightening. It is well documented that babies in the later stages of pregnancy can feel pain, and at least one study indicates that babies as young as 6-8 weeks gestation may experience pain.
After the Digoxin injection, the woman’s cervix is packed with laminaria, thin tampon-like sticks made of seaweed that expand the cervix gradually over the next day. The drug Misoprostol is also administered vaginally to “ripen” the cervix for the upcoming delivery of the dead baby.
Misoprostol is a drug that was originally manufactured to treat stomach ulcers. Its use in abortions is an off-label application not approved by the FDA. Misoprostol stimulates uterine contractions which are unpredictable and sometimes violent.
After the first day’s injection and cervical preparation, the patient is sent home or to a local hotel where she will remain unmonitored until her appointment at the clinic the following day.
On Day 2 of the procedure, the woman is repacked with larger laminaria sticks and given additional Misoprostol to prepare the woman for labor. The Misoprostol may be administered both vaginally or bucally (between the cheek and jaw), depending on whether delivery is expected on Day 3 or 4. If the woman is undergoing a later, 4 day process, she will return on Day 3 for additional laminaria and Misoprostol. Each day until delivery, she is sent back to her hotel where she remains unmonitored, even though active labor had begun or was in progress.
Sometimes, women cannot be able to get to the clinic in time and deliver their dead babies in the hotel, in vehicles, or other places were medical assistance is nonexistent. Tiller admitted so much in an video he produced for the purpose of introducing prospective abortion patients to the late-term abortion process.
“I left my baby alone in a toilet”…Don’t miss this young woman’s interview with Bill O’Reilly here about her experience with Dr. George Tiller, the creator of the induction abortion.
“I’m disgusted. I’m disgusted that women are told that they have a choice yet no one tells us what that choice is or what that choice is going to do to us or to the baby for that matter. Very few people, I think, know that this is what happens. It’s not just an easy solution. It’s not an answer to any problem, it just creates more problems.”
On the final day of the abortion, the woman is given the drug Oxytocin, which induces or augments contractions and the onset of labor. Women then are placed in a room where they endure the final stage of labor process. When it is determined that the labor has progressed to the point where the baby is about to be delivered, each woman is usually taken into a room with a toilet and told to lean on the nurse and push the baby into the toilet.
The toilet delivery method is used by a number of abortionists, including Florida abortionist James Pendergraft. Other abortionists may allow the woman to deliver on a delivery table. Still others, such as former Michigan abortionist Alberto Hodari, prefer to remove the dead baby through dismemberment.
Once the dead baby is delivered, the woman is given a procedure called Dilation and Curettage, or D&C. Here, a sharp edged spoon-shaped instrument is used to remove the remaining tissue, such as the afterbirth, from the uterus.
Complications from lethal fetal injections are well known. In Orlando, Florida, the misuse of Digoxin resulted in the live birth of Baby Rowan who died after abortion clinic workers denied him medical care. In Wichita, Kansas, Tiller’s needle slipped, and Baby Sarah was injected in the head with a toxic drug that was a precursor to digoxin. She survived and was later adopted, but suffered a malady of medical problems. She died five years later from complications to the injuries she received as a result of the injection.
“But frankly, debate over digoxin/dead baby abortions versus live baby abortions is absurd. The result is still a dead baby. Both procedures are barbaric and hold serious risks to women,” said Operation Rescue Senior Police Advisor Cheryl Sullenger. “The act of killing a pre-born baby is in itself immoral and until we can come to grips with that as a society, we never be able to value life as we should.”
Lord Jesus thank you for your victory! Thank you for the abortion clinics being closed one by one today in Texas. At this time Lord, I lift up the distraught faces of each woman that you have created with life inside of them, who now don’t know where to turn. I pray for the right people with loving hearts and open arms to welcome these women into their life, to learn who YOU are, through their actions. Lord Jesus this is all for your glory! I pray for changed hearts and minds and that your love shines onto these women wanting to kill and to the father’s of these unborn children. God in the beginning, you said, “Let there be light!” and there was. I pray today that they see your light.
