Bearing false witness
Another "Pro Life News" headline about an effort to save babies, with the snarky, "And then you can kill the baby."
Yes, for all practical purposes, she still can kill the baby. But that's not the intent of the law and you know it.
The idea is that the more time she has to think about it, the less likely she is to kill the baby. And you know full well this is the intent. The prolifers who are working for these laws are being wise as serpents, rescuing as many as they can of those who are being led to slaughter.
Laws that stand directly between the woman and the abortionist can't possibly pass, and if they did, they'd never be enforced. The Born Alive Infants Protection Act isn't even being enforced! A country that doesn't enforce a law saying you can't kill a baby once it's born alive isn't going to enforce a law saying you can't kill them before they're born. It's NOT GOING TO HAPPEN. So we have to do the best we can to save as many babies as we can.
YES, go out and do your own thing. Push for an overturn of Roe. Push for a total ban. GO FOR IT! But in the mean time, STOP WITH THIS BEARING OF FALSE WITNESS, of deliberately misrepresenting the motives of people who are managing the best they can to save as many children as they can.
