According to reports, Massachusetts Democrats are trying to amend legislation that would allow late-term abortions. In other words, it would be legal to kill a baby minutes before birth.
Massachusetts State Representative Claire Cronin has filed an amendment to the state budget that would enshrine as law the ability to abort a full-term fetus up until the moment of birth. Cronin and her fellow Democrats, who hold staggering majorities in both the State House of Representatives (127-31) and State Senate (36-4), are attempting to pass the controversial legislation after seeing Amy Coney Barrett confirmed to the Supreme Court in October.
The pro-life Massachusetts Citizens for Life objects to the parliamentary move to shortchange the legislative process and enact such a provocative law.
Despite overwhelming support by Democrat lawmakers, a poll conducted by the Susan B. Anthony List in 2019 revealed that 62% of Massachusetts citizens opposed legalizing late-term abortions.
Though the Democrats hold both the state House of Representative and the Senate, Massachusetts Republican Governor, Charlie Baker, has indicated he might veto the bill if it reaches his desk.
If, you want to read the heart rendering story on how doctors found out that babies can experience pain in the womb read “The First Ache.” In the early 1980s, doctors were actually performing surgery on pre-term babies (some as young as 22 weeks) without anaesthesia because it was believed they could not feel pain. This included open-heart surgery. READ: The First Ache: New York Times
Some medical experts believe babies as young as 18 weeks can feel pain and because of this pro-life groups have been pushing with limited success to at the very least have babies anaesthetized before abortions.
The Silent Scream
Perhaps one of the most disturbing videos you will see is one entitled The Silent Scream, that was narrated by former abortionist Dr. Bernard Nathanson. It was this video that caused him to quit performing abortions.
Filmed in 1984 using ultrasound, it showed a baby in the first trimester being aborted using a high speed suction that rips its body apart. Moments before the tube is inserted into the womb, the baby is peacefully sucking her thumb.
As soon as the device enters the baby immediately senses its presence and desperately tries to pull away. The baby’s heart rate raced to 200 beats a second from 140 beats as the abortion started. In other words the baby knew what was happening and was terrified.
The video was titled The Silent Scream because you can see the baby’s mouth open as she is ripped apart.
