Yesterday, Democrats defeated a Republican bill which would have made the most horrorific late term abortions illegal. And by "late term," we're largely referring to infants who could possibly survive outside the womb with proper medical care (22 weeks being the age cited by the NY Times referring to a new New England Journal of Medicine study).
Unlike the Cowardly Lion getting a haircut in Oz, a late term abortion is no simple "snip, snip here, snip, snip there" operation. Rather, it involves taking an infant and giving it the full ISIS treatment - ripping off arms and legs, slicing spinal cords, and decapitation. And in partial birth abortion, the child has largely already been delivered before the slaughtering begins.
Do Democrats believe there is any limit on when abortions should be allowed? Hillary Clinton says no, and Barack Obama is already on record as supporting post-natal abortion for babies who are born alive (repeatedly voting against the Illinois "Born-Alive Infants Protection Act.")
Of course, late term abortions are very, very, very rare - only happening about 18,000 times a year. Or perhaps more if the price of Lamborghinis goes up.
So what does this have to do with Ahmed the alleged clockmaker? Plenty - and not just the "parts is parts" comparison made in the cartoon above. Obama tweeted "Cool clock, Ahmed. Want to bring it to the White House? We should inspire more kids like you to like science. It's what makes America great."
Only you can't really "like science" and like late term abortion, because the science says that the young victims are fully capable of feeling every bit of the pain and agony of being dismembered alive. And the science says that mothers are 35 times more likely to die from late term abortions than abortions performed in the first trimester.
Ignoring science doesn't "make America great," Mr. Obama. But it does win a lot of bloodsoaked votes for Democrats from people who don't give a damn about human life.
