OB/GYN confirms awful truth to Congress: Babies left to die
Testifying in favor of the Born Alive Abortion Survivors Act, a physician told Congress that abortionists are letting babies who survive an abortion procedure die.
Dr. Kathi Aultman told CNSNews.com that, as a society, "we have been so blinded by the abortion rhetoric that now letting babies die after they are born doesn't seem bad either."
Democrats are blocking a House vote on the bill.
"The opposition is saying that it is an impediment to abortion, which it is not," Aultman said. "It only deals with a baby that has survived abortion and asks you to treat that baby like you would treat any baby of that same gestational age."...
...While the Lord is sovereign over such tragedies, these are outside His declarative will which informs us what is right and wrong from His word. Offenses will come, but woe be it to him by whom they come.
I'm not very swayed by medical descriptions and terminology from the internet. The medical establishment has proven often that they are not good sources for morality or necessarily good science. You would do better, Jim, to turn to your Bible after asking the Lord to lead you with it.
I have a problem with your characterization of life beginning at conception as RC definition rather than a Biblical one, Jim. That's not accurate. No Protestant worth his salt picks up a doctrine without a Biblical warrant, something John UK and I enjoy arguing about. If the RC happened to be right on this, good for them. May the Lord lead them further in right thinking and judgment to Himself. The general disagreement with the RCC is not an excuse to turn from this particular doctrine.
I also have a problem with you characterizing miscarriages as some sort of abortion. That kind of language is designed to make abortion seem somehow natural. A miscarriage is a miscarriage, not an abortion. We don't know why the Lord allows these to happen ,but He must have a purpose. He is the creator and sustainer of life. All the days of a man's life were written in His book before a single day came to pass. We recently attended the funeral of a young mother who left behind her husband and children. Yet her death was not untimely...it was right when the Lord said it was time for her to end her separation from Him. One could make the same argument for any miscarriage.
Abortion is the murder of a child who was not being miscarried at the time he or she was killed, While the Lord is sovereig
QC, unfortunately too many evangelicals accept the Catholic definition of when life begins gave them a political ally and of course support their religious stance https://tinyurl.com/hbtgqek (Politically Incorrect?)
So, instead of recognizing the biblical definition when life begins you are going to have to blame God for being the greatest abortionist of them all -- no
WebMD wrote: A miscarriage is the loss of a fetus before the 20th week of pregnancy. The medical term for a miscarriage is spontaneous abortion, but "spontaneous" is the key word here because the condition is not an abortion in the common definition of the term.
According to the March of Dimes, as many as 50% of all pregnancies end in miscarriage -- most often before a woman misses a menstrual period or even knows she is pregnant. About 15-25% of recognized pregnancies will end in a miscarriage.
More than 80% of miscarriages occur within the first three months of pregnancy. Miscarriages are less likely to occur after 20 weeks gestation; these are termed late miscarriages....
excerpt from, "Pregnancy and Miscarriage"
A person is not a human is created at the beginning of conception.
The problem for Jim and the rest of his Progressive cohort is a basic definition and how it gets applied. That definition in question is when life begins. If lofe begins at birth as the pro-murder crowd insists, and the object of abortion is to end life before it's life, then the easy slide from a life birth to infanticide seems obvious.
Perhaps, then, attorneys general and prosecutors should consider enforcing the laws on the books and prosecuting these killers? But who's to say when the law was broken? Murderous intent knows few boundaries. Of no one will say that a baby born alive was killed, how would the murderers be prosecuted?
Well, this is what fact check had to say about it, well, an excerpt from it anyway.
