To the Editor:

Democrats (218) voted in favor of H.R. 3755 (218 v. 211). All Republicans and just one Democrat voted against the bill. This pro-abortion bill was passed to codify abortion on demand throughout pregnancy.

The bill allows abortion for any health reason right up until birth. Nascent children living in the womb during the second or third trimester can feel pain. That doesn’t matter for these young humans that could be dismembered. Congressional testimony by Dr. Anthony Levatino shows the modern-day barbarism of late-term abortions.

Representative Dean Phillips and other congressional democrats voted in favor of this depraved bill. I received a form e-mail response to my e-mail that thanked me for my feedback and stated, “I believe that there is much more common ground on this subject…” Not sure where there is common ground. H.R. 3755 doesn’t allow for any restrictions.

Melissa Ohden, founder, of the Abortion Survivors Network, tells a compelling story of surviving a late-term saline abortion in her book “You carried me.” She testified before Congress. (1) Protecting the right to life of abortion survivors could be common ground but this was not included in the bill.

Former abortionist Bernard Nathanson, MD, was able to see the humanity of a fetus after seeing ultrasound images. “Nathanson`s conclusion was that the fetus is a person, a patient, as much a person and a patient as any pregnant woman lying on his examining table.” (2) He spoke about the morality of abortion ‘’The final question is, is that the kind of an act, the tearing apart of an unborn child, is that compatible with the declared moral certitudes of any civilized society?’’ (3)

Let’s remember the words of Mother Teresa when she spoke at the National Prayer Breakfast in Washington, DC. “Any country that accepts abortion is not teaching its people to love but to use any violence to get what they want. This is why the greatest destroyer of love and peace is abortion.”
