Mikilvæg áskorun á bandaríska þingmenn sem á eins við um íslenzka sem hugleiða hvort leyfa eigi fósturdráp til loka 22. viku: LEYFIÐ EKKI KVÖL HINNA ÓFÆDDU!

Eftirfarandi bréf var að berast mér (JVJ):

Dear Friend,

Your calls and emails WORKED! Leader McConnell has announced a vote on the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act as early as Monday, January 29. We need you to now turn your attention to your senators and make sure they are voting in favor of this crucial legislation.

Please call (202) 224-3121 and ask to speak to each of your two senators, and encourage them to vote in favor of the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act, S. 1922.

The Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act protects unborn children nationwide after 20-weeks’ gestation, based on the scientific fact that an unborn child can feel pain in utero.  This legislation also protects women who face a substantially higher risk of complications from a late-term abortion. As of this date, 20 states have passed similar legislation, and it is time for Congress to follow suit.

There is widespread scientific consensus that, by this point in fetal development, the unborn child has the capability to feel excruciating pain. At 20-weeks’ gestation, a human’s neural pain system is fully developed; however, the higher-level pain modifying system has not fully developed. This means, at 20 weeks, an unborn child has not yet developed the coping systems to deal with stimuli that a fully developed child has.

Therefore, babies at 20 weeks will not only feel pain from an abortion, but will feel pain more intensely than most adults would likely experience. The most common abortion for a child at this gestation is a D&E (dismemberment and evacuation) abortion, which literally tears the child apart. Abortion doctors have testified before Congress that this type of abortion requires a doctor to count limbs to ensure the entire body has been evacuated from the mother’s uterus.

A nationwide consensus on when an elective abortion should no longer be legal is not a radical policy. In fact, a January 2018 Marist poll showed 63% of Americans, including 56% of Americans who identify as pro-choice, support banning abortions after 20 weeks.  Currently, the United States joins only seven nations worldwide — including Vietnam, China, and North Korea — in allowing elective abortions as late as 23 weeks, and that is a radical policy.  The U.S. leads the world in standing for human rights. Causing an unborn child, who would otherwise receive the benefit of anesthesia if he/she was undergoing surgery in utero, to feel the pain of an elective, late-term abortion is hardly leading on this front.

The Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act is one of the most crucial pieces of human rights legislation in Congress today. It is time that our laws reflect the principles which have upheld our government, like that of life — life for the baby that feels pain when poked or prodded in the womb, and the life of the mother whose life is at risk when seeking a late-term abortion.

With your help, we can save lives.

Yours truly,

Tyrkneskt réttlæti: lífstíðarfang­elsi fyr­ir nauðgun og morð sýr­lenzkrar, óléttrar flóttakonu og dráp tíu mánaða barns hennar

Ætti engum að ofbjóða dómurinn yfir ger­end­unum tveimur, Tyrkjum sem ruddust inn í húsnæði konunnar og manns hennar, rændu mæðginunum og drápu þau úti í skógi. Sjálfur hefði hann kosið að þeir gyldu fyrir glæpina með lífi sínu.

Ljósir punktar eru þó á dómnum: skömmin og löng fangelsun virkar vel til fráfælingar frá slíkum höfuðglæpum; og ánægjulegt er, að þeim verður ekki boðið upp á sænska lúxus-fangelsisvist!
