To live or die ‘on the floor’

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi sometimes sounds as if she has cast aside any attachment to reality. – Washington Examiner

Responding to a bill co-authored by Rep. Joe Pitts, R-Pa., that would prevent federal funds from going to pay for abortions under the slowly unraveling health care law critics call “Obamacare,” Pelosi said that if Republicans vote for the measure, “they will be voting to say that women can die on the floor and health care providers do not have to intervene.”

The Nov. 8 ballot in Mississippi will include Initiative 26, known as the Personhood Amendment, that says: “The term ‘person’ or ‘persons’ shall include every human being from the moment of fertilization, cloning, or the functional equivalent thereof.”

Perhaps an even greater counterattack on what former Surgeon General C. Everett Koop — in his seminal documentary on the issue “Whatever Happened to the Human Race?” — referred to as “the slaughter of the innocents” is a series of initiatives organized by a coalition of pro-life groups to put legislation on ballots in every state requiring an abortion-minded pregnant woman to see a sonogram image of her fetus prior to termination.

Mandating sonograms creates for “pro-choicers” an impossible intellectual, not to mention moral, dilemma. If they oppose women receiving information, they are censors.

The reason pro-choicers don’t want women to see what their babies look like in the womb is because, for too many of them, abortion has become a sacrament. They embrace a right to kill, while simultaneously denying the right to life.
