Democrats Want To Exempt Black Babies From Abortion Heartbeat Bill Making It Okay To Abort Black Babies
All one has to do is to do an internet search for the words, “Heartbeat Bill” and you immediately encounter people like actress Ashley Judd denouncing it. The measure, like the one signed in Ohio on Thursday, April 11, 2019, and last month in Georgia generally prohibits abortions after doctors can discern a fetal heartbeat, which occurs around six weeks of pregnancy. However, it seems that the mainstream media and Hollywood want to downplay this new law as much as they can.
In addition, a Democrat named Janine Boyd wanted to exclude black babies from the heartbeat bill. In other words, if a baby who was white had a heartbeat, they could not be aborted, but a baby who was black could.
As reported by LifeNews, Boyd’s bill “would have given an exemption to African American women to abort their unborn babies for any reason up to the state’s current abortion limit, 20 weeks.”
Ironically, Boyd “likened restrictions on abortion to slavery as she urged her fellow lawmakers to support the measure,” the outlet noted.
“Black slaves were once treated like cattle and put out to stud in order to create generations of more slaves,” argued the Democrat. “Our country is not far enough beyond our history to legislate as if it is.”
Thankfully, Amendment 0291 failed, and the heartbeat bill was signed by Republican Governor Mike DeWine on Friday.
Black babies story at the 7-minute mark:
Hollywood actress Ashley Judd has already taken to the media circuits to speak out against this new law in Ohio. The actress and advocate took part in Thursday’s Women in the World summit in NYC, where she spoke to moderator Katie Couric about joining the opposition against the heartbeat bill in Georgia last month. The measure, like the one signed in Ohio on Thursday, generally prohibits abortions after doctors can discern a fetal heartbeat, which occurs around six weeks of pregnancy.
CBS News called it “one of the most restrictive abortion laws in the country.” That’s a compliment CBS.
Columnist Del Duit had these words to say in support of the Bill:
“Most of the mainstream media have painted the picture that this is a horrible law because it did not contain exceptions for cases of rape or incest, which makes up less than one percent of all abortion justifications.
The main reason abortions take place is convenience, but this information was nowhere to be found in coverage by the left-leaning media.
News outlets also tried to describe a divide in the Republican Party because former Gov. John Kasich had vetoed the bill twice.
What is now called the Human Rights Protection Act is a major victory for the Pro-Life movement, in Ohio and across the nation.
The law states there will be criminal penalties for doctors who violate the law and perform abortions after a heartbeat has been detected in the unborn child.
Those who break the law could face a fifth- degree felony and up to a year in prison. The legislation also could allow the state medical board to impose a fine of up to $20,000 to those who offend.
The victim of the procedure never sees the light of day and cannot protect him or herself. That’s a bit skewed.
But even before the bill was singed into law by DeWine, the American Civil Liberties Union of Ohio stated it was already preparing a constitutional challenge.
“See you in court, ACLU!” appeared on the Twitter feed of Mike Gonidakis, the president of Ohio Right to Life, soon after the bill was signed. The ACLU had already pledged two hours before the bill was signed that they would take the bill to court.
Gonidakis called the passage of the bill the next incremental step in the strategy to overturn Roe v. Wade.
The director of NARAL Pro-Choice Ohio described the action taken by the legislature as a “dystopian nightmare where people are forced to continue pregnancies regardless of the harm that may come to them or their families.”
The only harm that will result from ensuring that children have the right to be born will be to the pocket books of the abortionists and their supporters.
After my wife and I witnessed the Ohio Senate pass the Heartbeat bill in mid-March, I posted that the entire debate about women’s health has been a complete lie fabricated by the pro-death movement.
Up to this point, since Roe v. Wade became law of the land in 1973, the left has been successful in misleading people to think the entire issue is about “choice” and “women’s health.”
This is not the case.
The abortion issue is based on two components.
1 – The destruction of the family unit.
2 – Money – and more money.
If you have seen the movie Unplanned, you were exposed to the only motivation behind the financial success of Planned Parenthood.”
Sadly, we live in times when truth, character, and integrity in reporting is at an all time low. Let’s pray the people will soon wake up to the immense evil that is being fostered by the political left all around us.
