When word came down the night of January 21 that House GOP leaders were reneging on their promise to hold a vote on the 20-week abortion ban the next day – the haunting 42nd anniversary of the Supreme Court’s Roe v Wade decision – [WARNING: vulgarity alert], I was pissed off to the height of pisstivity. Sorry, that’s the most accurate way I can describe it.

I was frankly shocked to see Albuquerque’s 20-week abortion ban initiative go down. In early September the ban got overwhelming public support, according to an Albuquerque Journal poll, right.
But the initiative did go down, losing by 9,144 votes: 55%-45%, 48,042 to 38,898.
Early voting is where our side lost. There were 50,000 early and absentee ballots cast, and they went 56% against and 44% for.
Objectively speaking, how barbaric is a society that votes in favor of murdering preborn babies five months old and up, particularly who are known to feel the pain of it all? How barbaric are people to jump, clap, and shout for joy when that happens (photo above)?
Albuquerque voters will today decide the fate of an initiative that would ban abortions past 20 weeks in their city.
Should the ban pass, a lawsuit to block it is certain. What happens after that is anything but. New ground in the fight to stop abortion is being broken.
What sets ABQ’s 20-week abortion ban apart, of course, is it’s a local, not state ban. Thirteen states have now passed similar bans. Three are currently enjoined as they work their way through the courts.
How would you like to stay at a hotel where in the room next door an aborting mother was delivering her dead baby into the toilet, and where the abortionist came to complete the abortion and wrap and remove the dead baby?
Worse, how would you like to stay in a hotel room where a late-term abortion was committed the night before? Where a mother delivered her dead baby on your toilet, in your bathroom, with all the blood and body secretions that come with it? Where the abortionist had the mother lie on your bed to finish it? Do you trust a hotel to sanitize a room as a hospital would?
If you have stayed at the Plaza Inn in Albuquerque, New Mexico, both scenarios are possible.
Something pretty scary is happening in Albuquerque right now. Voters will cast ballots on November 19th on an initiative that would ban abortions after 20 weeks with virtually zero exceptions. This is a serious attack on women – and it’s a deliberate attempt by extreme interest groups to test their latest anti-women strategy…. The groups […]
Early voting on the first local ban in the country on abortions past 20 weeks began in Albuquerque, New Mexico, on October 30. It will run until November 15, with Election Day on November 19.
Albuquerque is currently a late-term abortion magnet, as it is home to abortionist Curtis Boyd’s Southwestern Women’s Options, where elective abortions are committed “through 28 weeks” and “later” for maternal/fetal indications.
This ban would set a dangerous precedent for abortion supporters. They are already fighting a losing battle in their attempts to extinguish pro-life fires among the states, but their troubles would grow exponentially were they also forced to deal with hundreds or thousands of local municipalities.
Perhaps this is why Barack Obama’s Organizing for Action has gotten involved:
All the nation knows about Wendy Davis is that she is ignorant of the horrors of Kermit Gosnell, wears pink shoes, and filibustered legislation to save the innocent in Texas. She joined the long line of Democrats before her to oppose legislation to protect other people while using property rights arguments to do so. The […]
5:35p: I read with alarm a story at CNS News today that the Colorado Supreme Court is allowing an injunction to stand that prohibits pro-lifers from publicly displaying graphic images of aborted babies at a Denver church.
The Court’s reasoning demonstrated the height of judicial hypocrisy. It ruled signs such as Exhibits 43 and 9, right, “cause ‘psychological harm’ to children under 12,” according to CBN.
This from the same legal system that authorized the murders of the photographed children.
This obvious free speech violation is serious in and of itself, but the injunction also carries ramifications for other pro-life activists around the country.
You have got to look at these matters in a commonsense way. I looked at it from the really important stance of the impact on women and children…. What we are trying to do here is not to put obstacles in people’s way but to reflect the way medical science has moved on. ~ Maria […]
For almost 40 years, the law has been that you cannot ban previability abortions, and that’s exactly what Arizona did. ~ ACLU attorney Alexa Kolbi-Molinas, on a new Arizona law set to take affect Thursday that will ban abortions past 18 weeks gestation (counted as 20 weeks of pregnancy) except to save the life of […]
I wrote July 19 that the District of Columbia Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act (HR 3803) was in danger of not getting a vote in the House in the final days of session.
But now word comes from National Right to Life that a vote will indeed be held July 31:
There is ample biologic, physiologic, hormonal, and behavioral evidence for fetal and neonatal pain…. [Infants born at 20 weeks and beyond] are the patients that I perform procedures on every day and I can guarantee you that when I put a test tube in and I incubate a patient or put an IV in, they […]

Yesterday the U.S. House Judiciary Committee approved a late term abortion ban in the nation’s capital, where abortion is legal for any reason until the moment of birth. The vote was 18-14, split on party lines.
Now we have only two weeks to pass this legislation in the full House.
On February 21 pro-abortion advocates including District of Columbia Mayor Vincent Gray, Planned Parenthood African American Leadership and Engagement Director Ludwig Gaines, and District Congresswoman Eleanor Holmes Norton (pictured right) held a press conference to decry the introduction of the District of Columbia Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act in the U.S. House.
Yesterday, as the March for Life was taking place, pro-life Arizona Congressman Trent Franks (pictured right) introduced the District of Columbia Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act. The backdrop, according to the National Right to Life Committee: Article I of the U.S. Constitution established that the national seat of government would be placed forever not within […]
Despite the fact that actual science states that a fetus likely cannot feel pain until after birth, anti-choice legislators push for twenty week bans not to protect children, but to restrict abortion. Although fetuses cannot feel pain in the sense that we understand it, fetuses who are delivered and then die can feel physical pain. […]
The here.) This would be interesting, a sign of weakness, although if I were a betting woman I’d say the other side will decide it must sue. But here is the other side of the argument, per the AP: … [E]xperts say attempts by abortion-rights groups to block [the fetal pain law]… from going on […]

Yesterday, Tim posted thoughts by Justin Taylor on the JAMA fetal pain controversy. As you know, I also wrote of the fetal pain controversy in my WorldNetDaily.com column today. I have additional thoughts on John’s commentary, specifically on his following points: I have a hard time getting emotionally invested in the issue of fetal pain…. […]
