Filibustering for Infanticide



Text  



The pro choice movement is growing increasingly radical, to the point that it now emotionally supports the abortion of viable fetuses, aka babies–to the point that Texas State Sen. Wendy Davis filbustered for ten hours on behalf of infanticide–as Peggy Noonan put it. From the This Week transcript:

Here’s what — in the story of this young woman, she’s so spirited.  You know, she has such energy and she seems to have such commitment. But it seems to me — and I think it seems to many Americans — that what she is speaking for and standing for is something we would recognize as infanticide, late-term abortion, the taking of a little child’s life.  That is really, really serious.

If a woman’s health is adversely impacted by a late term pregnancy, or her life endangered, deliver–don’t abort–the baby. That’s consistent with Roe v. Wade, which is why I am increasingly convinced that pro abortion types would like to see it overturned in favor of something even more absolute.
