H.R.358: Protect Life Act – U.S. Congress – OpenCongress.
Take a look at the actual bill. The hysterical pro-aborts are whining that women will die on hospital steps because some hospitals don’t grind up babies in utero, and suck out the chucks and juice. Rather they keep the kid in there as long as the mom can sustain it, deliver the kid early if the mom can’t, and try to keep both the mom and kid alive. Pro aborts seem to passionately hate any legitimate medical intervention that doesn’t result in the kid’s death. Otherwise why would it bother them that some people believe in preserving the mom’s life without PURPOSELY killing the kid?
NARAL finds it extremely offensive that some hospitals don’t grind up the kids instead of delivering them whole.
NARAL wants more dead kids, and wants you to pay for it.
Here’s the Non-descrimination language that has pro-aborts foaming at the mouth.
