As the Pain Capable Unborn Child Protection Act moves to the floor of the House for a vote, President Obama is already taking cues from feminist groups to veto the legislation and is again letting his true pro-abortion, pro-infanticide stances show. H.R. 1797 bans abortions after 20-weeks. Some babies have survived as young as 21-weeks. Babies can hear things from inside the womb as early as 16-weeks.
WH issues veto threat against "Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act," on grounds it's "an assault on a woman's right to choose."— Mark Knoller (@markknoller) June 17, 2013
WH calls the bill, HR 1797, "a direct challenge to Roe v. Wade" & says it "shows contempt for women's health & rights."— Mark Knoller (@markknoller) June 17, 2013
Late last night, National Organization for Women President Terry O'Neill sent an email to supporters asking for donations to fight the legislation.
As a reminder, President Obama once called a newborn baby a "fetus outside of the womb," and voted in Illinois multiple times against the Born Alive Infant Protection Act, legislation that requires doctors to give babies who survive abortions medical care and full protections under the law. In other words, by voting against the Born Alive Infant Protection Act Obama voted to support infanticide and for leaving babies who survive abortions to die.
Twenty-week abortions are late term abortions, something organizations like NOW and President Obama support. Obama still hasn't released a statement about abortion monster Kermit Gosnell, either.
