African American Representative Mia Love speaks out in favor of the later term abortion ban on the House floor in May of 2015.

On May 13,015 the House has approved the Pain Capable Unborn Child Protection Act, Wednesday on a 242-184 vote with four Democrats (Reps. Cuellar, Langevin, Lipinski, and Peterson) voting for the bill and five Republicans voting against it (Reps. Dent, Dold, Hanna, Frelinghuysen) or voting present (Hice).

Abortion advocates like Planned Parenthood oppose 20 week abortion ban

Planned Parenthood, NARAL, Cecile Richards, Feminist Majority all oppose a ban on abortions after the 20th week of pregnancy.

Abortion rights advocates like to pretend that late term abortions only happen in cases of so-called “medical necessity” but a quick look at the way they advertise says otherwise.

Planned Parenthood 20 week abortion ad

This Planned Parenthood Center’s website makes no distinction on why you can get a 20 week abortion:

    An in-clinic abortion is performed using gentle suction and medical instruments to remove the pregnancy from the uterus. In clinic abortions are performed up to 20 weeks post-fertilization at our Houston location.

Planned Parenthood 20 weeks abortion

And this California Planned Parenthood tells girls:

    In-clinic abortion is offered up to 23 weeks and 6 days after the start of your last menstrual period. If your last period was after 23 weeks and 6 days, we can still help. Call us for a referral list of health care providers in your area that offer other abortion services.

This price list below by another Planned Parenthood may show why the tax funded abortion giant opposes late term abortion bans:

Abortion giant Planned Parenthood brags on their action website that president Obama would veto a 20 week abortion ban:

Planned Parenthood Obama 20 week abortion ban

And they are correct, Obama is radically pro-abortion.

But, polls show that Americans are not comfortable and many oppose late term abortions, which occur legally within the US for any reason possible as demonstrated by these for profit abortion clinic advertisements:

On May 13, 2015 the second anniversary of the murder convictions of abortion doctor Kermit Gosnell for killing babies at his “house of horrors” abortion clinic in Philadelphia, the House of Representatives is set to vote on a 20 week abortion ban.

Pro-life leaders say that at 20 weeks the unborn child can feel pain, but is not the sole reason for banning all abortions.

A chart published by the CDC for 39 states that reported abortions by gestation (520,304 of the 730,322 abortions reported in 2011) show that in those 39 states:

    335,748 abortions were performed at less than 8 weeks
    139,775 abortions were performed at 9-13 weeks gestation
    17,952 abortions were performed at 14-15 weeks gestation
    9,795 abortions were performed at 16-17 weeks gestation
    9,709 abortions were performed at 18-20 weeks gestation
    7,325 abortions were performed at 21 weeks gestation or greater
    .

CDC-ABortion-stats-by-gestation-882x1024

A 2014 report published by the Lozier Institute found that the United States is one of only seven countries in the world that permit elective abortion past 20 weeks.

The vote in the House comes following new evidence that premature babies may have a greater chance of survival if hospitals intervene after birth.

According to Life News, the House has approved the Pain Capable Unborn Child Protection Act, Wednesday on a 242-184 vote with four Democrats (Reps. Cuellar, Langevin, Lipinski, and Peterson) voting for the bill and five Republicans voting against it (Reps. Dent, Dold, Hanna, Frelinghuysen) or voting present (Hice).

University of Iowa researchers Matthew Rysavy, a senior medical student, and Edward Bell, professor of pediatrics in the Stead Family Department of Pediatrics, studied the cases of nearly 5,000 infants born before 27 weeks gestation at 24 academic hospitals participating in the Neonatal Research Network between 2006 and 2011.

What they found was that much of the difference in outcomes could be explained by whether efforts were made to save the life of the youngest infants after they were born.

At most centers, active care was not provided for infants born before 22 weeks into pregnancy. Active care was provided for all infants born at or after 25 weeks of pregnancy at almost all hospitals. However, between these two extremes—for infants born 22, 23, or 24 weeks into pregnancy—there was substantial variation among hospitals in whether infants were actively treated.

Results of the study, have been published in The New England Journal of Medicine.

But real life success stories of premature babies surviving at younger ages are becoming public.

Like twins Hunter Ryan Ridley and Darcy Louise Ridley were born on April 24, 2006 nearly 123 days early, approximately 22 weeks gestation.

Twings bor 22 weeks hunter and darcy

Or, this baby boy, Jonathan Amos, born at a gestational age of 23 weeks:

Jonathan Amos born at 23 weeks here is 3 weeks old

And baby girl, Bella Davidson, who was born at 23 weeks weighing just 1lb 3oz.

Bella Born less than 24 weeks gestation

This new data and ongoing evidence makes it harder for Planned Parenthood and the rest of their abortion advocates to convince the American public that legalized abortion-on-demand for any reason and at any stage of development is morally right.

Pro-life leader calls Speaker Boehner’s response to abortion protest “absolute disgrace”

Posted in John Boehner, Late term abortion, Pro-Life with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on May 7, 2015 by saynsumthn

Today, several pro-life leaders from around the nation went to the officers of Speaker John Boehner with a message to GOP leaders: Pass the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act.

Even though the speaker knew the Free The Ban protest was scheduled well in advance, pro-lifers were disappointed when his staff was not available to speak with those who gathered at his office today.

The event follows a similar one in March where eight pro-life leaders were arrested during a sit-in outside Speaker John Boehner’s Office.

This time their numbers were much greater.

According to Operation Rescue, leaders present at the Speaker’s office today included Eric Scheidler of the Pro-Life Action League, Brian Gibson of Pro-Life Action Ministries, Walter and Lori Hoye of Issue 4 Life Foundation, Jeff While, Cheryl Conrad, and Jason Conrad of Survivors, Sarah Howell of CEC for Life, Bud Shaver and Pastor Manny Larzidabal, of Protest ABQ, and others.

House leaders originally planned to pass the late term abortion ban back in January until the vote was sabotaged by Rep. Renee Ellmers, who wanted to remove a rape reporting requirement in the legislation making it easier to get abortions after 20 weeks of pregnancy.

Pro-life leaders say that at 20 weeks the unborn child can feel pain, and they were growing impatient that Republicans had not passed the bill.

Their gathering May 7th was intended to further pressure House leadership to get the legislation through and to give the Speaker fetal models of unborn children whose lives hang in the balance each day the bill’s passage is delayed.

As the group of pro-lifers reached the Speaker’s office, they knocked on Speaker John Boehner’s Office door and no one answered.

Rev. Pat Mahoney, who helped organize the protest, along with African American pastor Rev. Walter Hoye and others, said the group was using the Biblical analogy of the woman who approached the unjust judge and would not relent.

I will say this,” Rev. Mahoney said after repeated attempts to knock at Speaker Boehner’s door, “it would be an absolute disgrace, is Speaker Boehner’s staff did not answer the door to the people who helped get him the largest Republican majority in this generation. It would be an absolute disgrace.”

Cheryl Sullenger, senior policy advisor for Operation Rescue, said that they believed that the Speaker was there but that his staff would not come to the door.

They knew we were coming,” Sullenger said.

Rev. Walter Hoye and and his wife Lori held the exact replica model of a 20 week pre-born child, outside of the Longworth building where Speaker Boehner’s office is.

My son was born at less than six months gestation.” Rev. Hoye said in advance of the protest.

I held him in my right hand when he weighed a mere 1.9 pounds. There is no way I will support legislation that includes an exception for rape and fails to end abortion in the United States after 20 weeks.”

“I want Speaker Boehner to know that not only do Black Lives Matter but all lives matter,” Rev. Hoye said.

Outside, the pro-life group Survivors of the Abortion holocaust report that Rev. James Conrad, a sibling survivor, and his mother, also a sibling survivor from an illegal abortion, spoke at a press conference urging Speaker Boehner and the GOP House to pass the 20 Week Pain Capable Protection Act.

Bud Shaver Executive Director of Protest ABQ, said that he made two attempts to deliver a petition from New Mexicans and voices from all across the nation calling for a Ban on Late-Term Abortion, but that, “House speaker Boehner refused to open his constituents office to hear the desire of people representing states all across the nation who want to see an end of Late-Term Abortion in our country.”

It’s a huge disappointment that House Speaker Boehner closed his public office in Washington D.C. to the organizations, Pastors, and leaders from all across the country. In New Mexico it is the Radical pro-abortion Democrats that refused to allow a vote to end Late-Term Abortion. Now it’s the Republican majority in D.C. who are apparently doing the same thing,” Shaver said.

Prayer outside Speaker Boehners office freetheban pat mahoney

A few of the pro-lifers went back to the Speaker’s office later in the afternoon but again, no one would answer the door.

“I felt like we were being told that we didn’t matter and neither did the babies that this bill would save,” said Sullenger.

It was disrespectful not to at lease send someone out so we could at least feel like we were heard. Instead, Boehner’s staff turned a blind eye and a deaf ear, not just to us, but also to plight of babies and their moms. It was disappointing, to say the least,” she concluded.

One day after the protest House majority leader Kevin McCarthy told THE WEEKLY STANDARD that the House of Representatives would vote on the bill next week.

According to House Republicans, the requirement that rapes be reported to law enforcement has been removed from the bill. Instead, the legislation requires abortion doctors to ensure that victims have received either medical treatment or licensed counseling at least 48 hours prior to the late-term procedure.

Steven Ertlet at Life News reports, that according to his sources, the rape exception language will be airtight by requiring some sort of documented medical treatment or counseling 48 hours prior to the abortion and provided by physicians or counselors that are outside of the abortion industry. In cases of rape or incest of a minor, the abuse must first be reported to either social service or law enforcement. In addition, abortionists are explicitly required to follow state mandatory reporting laws and state parental involvement laws.

LifeNews said that sources they are in contact with say that provisions of the bill include, “a born-alive infant protection requirement that requires a second doctor be present and prepared to provide care to the child if he or she is born alive and that the child must receive the same level of care as would any other premature infant. The baby must then be transported and admitted to a hospital. The woman is also empowered with a right to sue if the law is not followed, and is provided with an informed consent form that notifies her of the age of her baby and the requirements under the law.”

All late term abortions done under the exceptions, must be reported to the Center for Disease Control which will compile the data on a annual basis for public review, he said.

It is called the Free the Ban protest and pro-life leaders from several organizations are headed to the Capital Thursday to send a message to GOP leaders: Pass the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act.

Speaker Boehner and his fellow GOP leaders claim to be for the legislation and say they are working to draft the correct wording for the bill.

But, frustrated pro-life leaders like, Jill Stanek, who once held an aborted child in her arms, says that time is paramount and House leadership has delayed a vote for far too long.

Jill Stanek speaks about aborted baby she held free the ban

Stanek told the media at that March 25th sit-in that she wanted to apply pressure to GOP House leaders to get the late term abortion ban passed.

“I held a little aborted human being until he died, 21 weeks, that this bill would have saved had it been in place. This little abortion survivor was the impetus of a bill passed eventually in the state of Illinois called the Born Alive Infants Protection Act that Barack Obama, a state Senator voted against four times. We expect this sort of treatment of abortion from the Democrat side but we do not expect this treatment from the Republican side. And, that’s what we’ve seen here with the 20 week abortion ban,”
she said.

Almost 4 months have now passed. Innocent children are dying and women are being diminished because of the Republican leadership’s inaction,” pro-life organizers Troy Newman, Rev. Pat Mahoney, and Jill Stanek state on their events page.

The group of over 13 pro-life organizations plans to go to Speaker Boehner’s office on Thursday, May 7th, to, “be a voice for the innocent children who die every day in America from the violence of abortion.”

Among the protest leaders will be Black pastor, Walter Hoye who plans to present Speaker Boehner’s staff with the fetal model of a 20-week-old African-American baby.

My son was born at less than six months gestation. I held him in my right hand when he weighed a mere 1.9 pounds. There is no way I will support legislation that includes an exception for rape and fails to end abortion in the United States after 20 weeks.

I want Speaker Boehner to know that not only do Black Lives Matter but all lives matter,” Rev. Hoye said.

According to the latest stats from the Center for Disease Control (CDC) on abortion, 730,322 abortions were performed in 2011.

Of that number, the CDC reported 7.3% of unborn babies killed by abortion were between 14–20 weeks’ gestation and 1.4% were 21 weeks’ gestation or greater.

A chart published by the CDC for 39 states that reported abortions by gestation (520,304 of the 730,322 abortions reported in 2011) show that in those 39 states:

GOP leader says 20 week abortion ban vote nears while pro-lifers continue 2nd protest plans at Speaker’s office

Posted in John Boehner, Late term abortion with tags , , , , , , , , , , on April 13, 2015 by saynsumthn

On May 7th pro-lifers vow to descend on Speaker John Boehner’s offices for a second time to demand the GOP vote on a late term abortion ban.

Police at Freetheban protest

An interview with Republican House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy posted at Roll Call says the GOP leader intends to bring up three measures Republicans pulled from the floor earlier this Congress: a bill banning most abortions after 20 weeks of pregnancy, a border security bill that was pulled amid immigration concerns, and a No Child Left Behind rewrite that was put on hold during the Department of Homeland Security funding debacle.

That “abortion bill” is known as the Pain Capable Unborn Child Protection Act.

Sound Familiar?

It should. Republican leaders promised a vote on the bill back in January.

When the vote was sabotaged by Rep. Renee Ellmers, pro-lifers patiently waited for it to come up again.

Free the Ban Jill Troy Pat

By March 25th when no vote was announced, pro-life leaders, Pat Mahoney, Troy Newman, and Jill Stanek among others held a sit-in outside Speaker Boehner’s offices to demand the bill be brought up for a vote.

The group claimed that the Speaker and GOP leaders were delaying a vote on the bill and in a press release sent out April 2nd, the leaders announced eleven local and national pro-life groups had planned a second major demonstration for May 7th if, “by that time the U.S. House has not passed the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act.”

According to LifeNews, “new language is still in the works and those responsible for crafting a second version of the bill are taking their time to ensure it’s done right and another blowup from Ellmers or other lawmakers is avoided.

The pro-life news blog claimed that there is no purposeful delay in bringing the bill back to the floor.

Jill Stanek kneels with katie Mahoney Boehner abortion prolife

But not all pro-life leaders are so sure and Stanek and the others say that the Roll Call story has not deterred their plans for a second protest if the ban has not been passed by May 7th.

A post on Jill Stanek’s Blog shows that they mean business:

    As most know, House Republican leadership pulled the ban from a promised vote on January 22 after supposedly pro-life Republican women complained about the rape/incest reporting requirement.

    After two months had passed with no word on a rescheduled vote, I was one of eight pro-lifers who were arrested at Speaker Boehner’s office in a protest on March 25 to draw attention to the bill and the babies it would protect.

    The alliance of discontented pro-lifers has grown to 11 organizations now, which are planning another protest on May 7 at Speaker Boehner’s office if the 20-week abortion ban hasn’t been voted on by that date.

    To reiterate, unless the Pain Capable Unborn Child Protection Act has been passed in the House by May 7, we will be back.

To be continued…
