House to vote on 20-wk abortion ban ~May 13

Screenshot_2015-05-08-08-36-00On the heels of a second protest at Speaker Boehner’s office, the Weekly Standard announced this morning that the U.S. House will vote on the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act around the anniversary of the May 13, 2013, conviction of late-term abortionist Kermit Gosnell.

A source told me midway through the 3-1/2 month process of arriving at language that satisfied all contingents, “This is the most complicated bill I’ve ever worked on.”

Farthest apart were pro-lifers who wanted the rape/incest exception removed from the bill entirely and those who wanted the reporting requirement removed from the rape/incest exception.

  • Texas Senator Wendy Davis seems to think Kermit Gosnell and Douglas Karpen are the same abortionist. When asked by the Weekly Standard about Gosnell, she gave this response:

    I don’t know what happened in the Gosnell case. But I do know that it happened in an ambulatory surgical center. And in Texas changing our clinics to that standard obviously isn’t going to make a difference.

    Only Gosnellís clinic was obviously not an ambulatory surgical center. But you know whose is? Texas abortionist Douglas Karpen – the same abortionist who was exposed for killing infants who survive abortion (just like Kermit Gosnell) and has been called the Texas Gosnell. Either Davis got the two confused or she isn’t aware they’re different people.

Stanek weekend question: How do pro-choicers celebrate Mother’s Day?

I’ll answer that: with tasteless and tactless audacity, from the top down.

As the Weekly Standard noted, “The White House is marking Mother’s Day… by celebrating free birth control provided by Obamacare“….

Obama campaign: Women should vote with their “lady parts,” not brain

This is posted on an Obama campaign website: “Vote like your lady parts depend on it,” the text in the image says. Underneath, the text reads: “Because they kinda do.” UPDATE: The image has been removed from the Obama website. ~ The Weekly Standard, October 2

DNC platform supports abortion “regardless of ability to pay”

The Democratic Party strongly and unequivocally supports Roe v. Wade and a womanís right to make decisions regarding her pregnancy, including a safe and legal abortion, regardless of ability to pay. ~ Revised Democratic Party platform position, which essentially supports taxpayer-funded abortion, via the Weekly Standard, September 4 [HT: Laura Loo]

  • In the Weekly Standard, Meghan Clyne discusses the “War on Women” rhetoric:

    In the meantime, a perceptive observer may notice a curious thing about this “war on women.” It is based entirely on one set of policies: those pertaining to women’s reproductive systems. By the Democrats’ logic, to oppose abortion on demand and taxpayer-funded contraception is to be “anti-woman.” Womanhood is thus defined by the desire for unrestricted abortion and free birth control; women themselves are reducible to ovaries.

    It was once permissible in American politics to view women as incapable of concerns beyond childbearing ó but not in this century. And in addition to insulting women’s intelligence, this approach may well backfire. American women are active, thoughtful citizens; their political concerns are focused on the future of their nation, not the cheapest and easiest way to shut down their reproductive tracts.

Landmark: House to vote on DC fetal pain ban

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:

Neonatal doc: 20-week preemies feel pain

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 […]
