Obama to Veto Bill That Would Prevent Dismembering Babies Old Enough to Feel Pain

The reason the media conspicuously played down the lurid and highly newsworthy Kermit Gosnell baby abattoir trial is that it is heavily invested in the political success of Barack Obama. Don’t get the connection? Maybe this will help:

Despite passing the U.S. House of Representatives, a bill to prohibit abortions after 20 weeks of pregnancy faces an uncertain future as President Obama’s administration has suggested that he will veto it.

“(S)cience is on our side,” Representative Marsha Blackburn, (R- Tenn.) told MSNBC in an interview.

Blackburn joined other pro-life representatives, including Michelle Bachmann (R- Minn.) and Virginia Foxx (R- N.C.) in defending the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act, which would ban abortions 20 weeks into a pregnancy and later, based on science indicating that unborn children can feel pain by this point. Exceptions in cases of rape, incest or a risk to the mother’s life were included in the final House version of the legislation.

This moral no-brainer passed the House 228-196, but now has to get through Harry Reid’s Democrat-controlled Senate — and if it does:

The Obama Administration has said that should the legislation gain the approval of both the House and Senate, the president’s “senior advisors would recommend that he veto this bill.”

Why wouldn’t he? As State Senator, Obama repeatedly fought to deny medical attention to babies who survive botched attempts on their lives by abortionists.

Rep. Trent Franks (R-Ariz.), who introduced the legislation, argued in a June 13 statement that “(k)nowingly subjecting our innocent unborn children to dismemberment in the womb, particularly when they have developed to the point that they can feel excruciating pain every terrible moment leading up to their undeserved deaths, belies everything America was called to be.”

Franks should have said, “everything the human race was called to be.”

Anyone who approves of tearing babies to pieces, even knowing they feel the pain and presumably the horror, will not hesitate to do the same to you when they have the political leverage. Losing to liberalism is not an option.
