The following comes from a May 13 story on LifeSiteNews.com.
On the one-year anniversary of Dr. Kermit Gosnell’s conviction of murdering newborn babies, Republican senators and pro-life experts pushed Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid to allow a vote on a national ban on abortion after 20 weeks.
Late-term abortion causes physical pain to unborn babies, increases the risks of harming women, and allies the United States with international pariahs like North Korea, they said in a press conference today to support the Pain Capable Unborn Child Protection Act (S. 1670).
The bill, introduced by Congressman Trent Franks of Arizona, passed the House of Representatives last summer. Sen. Lindsey Graham introduced the bill in the Democrat-controlled Senate last November, where it has stalled ever since.
Graham offered Reid a compromise: bring both his bill and Sen. Richard Blumenthal’s Women’s Health Protection Act, which would radically expand abortion-on-demand, before senators.
“Senator Blumenthal has a bill that’s really a top priority of the pro-choice community, so let’s have a vote on both,” he said. “I think the topic’s worthy of debate. … He said every senator needs to be on the record. I agree with that.”
Pro-life experts said abortions after 20 weeks cause unborn babies excruciating pain.
“I am standing here today to share with you what embryology textbooks and peer-reviewed scientific studies have unequivocally proven: babies at 20 weeks post-fertilization can perceive and experience pain. This is a matter of biology, not a matter of belief or wishful thinking,” said Arina Grossu, director of the Center for Human Dignity at the Family Research Council.
“Between 20 and 30 weeks post-fertilization, an unborn child has more pain receptors per square inch of skin than at any other time in his or her life, with only a very thin layer of skin for protection, leaving nerve fibers closer to the surface. Mechanisms that inhibit or moderate the experience of pain do not begin to develop until 32 to 34 weeks post-fertilization.”
….Today, Reid again dismissed the bill. “As we know [Graham has] got a difficult primary down there and he keeps moving further to the Right,” he said. “That’s what this is all about.” Sen. Patty Murray, D-WA, joined in a scathing speech on the floor Tuesday afternoon, saying that the bill “is not going anywhere here in the Senate, and they know it is a cheap political ploy….”

“Patty Murray (D-WA) and Harry Reid (D-NV) are really just two peas in the same Satan-seed pod. Senator Murray got lots of good press out of her budget partnership with Congressman Ryan (R-WI-1). But Ryan danced with the devil; Murray is joined at the hip — as is all the Democratic Party — with Planned Parenthood. No limitation on abortion, regardless how logical, or just, will ever be supported by the Ds, in that it will cost Planned Parenthood money. Of course, the pro-homosexual sexualists lobby is also strongly allied with Planned Parenthood. Wow — mothers that are Ds want the right to kill their pre-borns, while homosexuals — who can’t be mothers, except in CA, want to help them have stronger rights to do it! These are walking, talking monster-people, no less than the figures in the Bible: was Herod Antipas much different on the “go-to-Hell” scale than Harry Reid? Let’s see, OK’ing the killing of the Holy Innocents versus OK’ing the killing of all pre-borns after 20-weeks. Hey, don’t you hate these hard ones? How about “all of the above” on the “most beloved of Satan” question? Dang!
I wonder if Mr. Reid would consider a trade with Mr. Boehner. A free vote — where the member can vote as they wish on the legislation with no fear of Party discipline for a ‘wrong’ vote. — on the 20 week bill in the Senate for an identical House vote on the Senate Immigration Reform Bill. Agreed-to time limited debate, no filibuster, no amendments, no parliamentary games.
Reid is a baby-butchering minion of Satan, with the blood of millions of babies on his hands. He and his party, and those who vote for them, revel in the blood of the slaughtered.
Tell us what you reallly think, juergensen…don’t hold back. :o) Actually, I think you give the man too much credit…if he thinks of babies at all it is just a head count on the tally sheet. Perhaps the public personna of organized crime…murder, drugs and sexual slavery disguised in a suit and tie. (see smiling photo above. Feel the love) It wouldn’t surprise me in the least if PP is just a front for a syndicate of some kind…what better way to launder money? It’s win/win for criminals..they can profit from murdering human beings legally. I wonder if anyone checks those black plastic bags that leave the abortuaries?
Look what Senator Busyhead is up to now. What a guy. What a patriot. Las Vegas meets Attila the Hun in a suit. Note the immaculate white shirt, conservative attire…sort of a modern Uriah Heep.
Why won’t Senate bring 20-week ban to the floor? – Because the
PARTY of DEATH aka DEMOCRATIC PARTY
has been voted in as the majority.
Let us remember that the Democratic Party supports the KILLING and TORTURE of innocent unborn human beings in their National Platform, for the convenience of others.
(Not to mention sodomy marriage.)
PLease tell that to the Demoncrat “bishops”!
May God have mercy on an amoral Amerika !
Viva Cristo Rey!
Yours in Their Hearts,

By 8 weeks and 2 days –
” Touching the embryo elicits squinting, jaw movement, grasping motions, and toe pointing. ”
By 9 weeks and 3 days –
” The fetus can also grasp an object, move the head forward and back, open and close the jaw, move the tongue, sigh, and stretch.
Nerve receptors in the face, the palms of the hands, and the soles of the feet can sense light touch.
In response to a light touch on the sole of the foot, the fetus will bend the hip and knee and may curl the toes.”
Dismemberment, chemical burning, and poisoning these little human beings is murder and torture.
“Endowment for Human Development” – a non-religious, scientific site.
It doesn’t matter what Congress does, except it would be nice to see them stand up for innocent Human Beings – and against murder and torture.
( Obama will just ignore it anyway.)
Since 1973 approx. 54 MILLION human beings have been murdered (abortion) for the convenience of others.
They have been denied their right to life.
This is the biggest civil rights violation in the history of the USA. And the DEMOCRATS lead the charge.
POLITICS! He is scared about the mid-term election in November, as simple as that!
Any Bishop, Priest, or Nun who supports the pro-abortion Democratic Party,
and pro-abortion politicians is NOT Worthy to Receive Holy Communion.
(The same goes for the rest of us. )
WORTHINESS to RECEIVE HOLY COMMUNION, General Principles –
Unborn babies are human and have the right to life.
Canon 915 – ” Those who have been excommunicated or interdicted after the imposition or declaration of the penalty
and others obstinately persevering in manifest grave sin are not to be admitted to holy communion.”
” The Discipline Regarding the Denial of Holy Communion to Those Obstinately Persevering in Manifest Grave Sin”
When are ALL US Bishops and ALL Priests, and ALL Nuns going to take a public position against the Democratic Party Platform ?
There is NO “PROPORTIONATE REASON” to VOTE for a pro-abortion politician.
There is nothing proportionate in the USA to the INTENTIONAL murder of approx. 1 MILLION humans each year.
Actually, “proprotionate reason” would exist if, say, the only two candidates were Obama and Hitler. Since Obama has the blood of, say, 1.2 million babies per year on his hands, for a total of 9.6 million babies (8 x 1.2 million = 9.6 million), there would exist “proprotionate reason” to vote for Hitler, as he killed only 6 million. Such is the gravity of those “Catholics” who voted for baby-butchering Obama: they have sided with someone worse than Hitler.
People on the Left show copious amounts of outrage and concern with how much pain a ruthless and sadistic rapist-murderer experiences during his execution by IV. But hey, pull a baby apart or be the victim of one of those rapist-murderers………… :(
