The party of hate is also the party of death as we see more and more outlandish claims from the liberal left regarding abortion. Liberals claim that any restrictions on abortion, such as the recent slew of "heartbeat bills," being passed in a number of conservative run states, are somehow harming womens' "reproductive" rights, yet they turn a blind eye to the slew of bills being passed in liberally run states that allow the termination of a pregnancy right up until the point of birth, which basically ignores the right to life for the unborn baby.
Right now eight states, Alaska, Colorado, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New Mexico, New York, Oregon, and Vermont, along with Washington, D.C., have no gestational limits on abortion.
In plain-speak that means in those eight states and D.C., a fully formed child that can survive outside the womb, has a heartbeat, can move their limbs, and can feel pain, can be brutally murdered.
PUBLIC BEING MISINFORMED BY THE LIBERAL MEDIA ON LATE TERM ABORTION LAWS
Apparently many liberal pro-abortion activists are completely unaware of the debate that has been raging harder than ever since a video clip of a Virginia delegate went viral where she admits that her proposal would allow an abortion even as the pregnant woman was dilating and in the midst of giving birth.
For example, just today I ran across a discussion where conservative pundit Steven Crowder asked "Not a SINGLE DNC candidate has supported ANY type of restrictions on abortion up until birth. So I ask... who are the "extremists"? A response from a Twitter verified account for Nicolaj Leonardo, stated "Up until birth? Are you a special kind of stupid?" Another user reminded him "That is what is being condoned and actually said," and then Leonardo showed that he was actively supporting something he knew nothing about by stating "No actually it isn't, you don't have to say it...because it should be f*ckin clear you can't abort up until birth...jesus."
We would like to introduce Mr. Leonardo, to Delegate Tran from Virginia in the short clip below, who disagrees.
With the abortion battle being waged in the media, online on social media, in discussions boards all over the Internet, how is it that people like Leonardo, and believe me, they are all over social media, have no clue that eight states have no gestational limits, allowing abortion up until the point of birth, yet they know all about the "heartbeat bills," that bans doctors from performing the procedure after a fetal heartbeat can be detected?
There is a reason there are so many pro-abortion online and offline activists completely unaware of the radical and extreme laws being passed in states run by liberals, and that is directly related to how the media is portraying the issue, not only completely from the liberal viewpoints, but to the point where they are updating their guidelines to deliberately mislead the public on the types of procedures used by abortionists to perform late term abortions and partial birth abortions.
They also are not allowed to use the term "partial birth abortion," but rather want them to call it "intact dilation and extraction to describe the procedure, or a procedure known medically as intact dilation and extraction."
ABORTION PROCEDURES & TERMINOLOGY: Use the term intact dilation and extraction to describe the procedure, or a procedure known medically as intact dilation and extraction; opponents call it partial-birth abortion. On the latter, it is necessary to point out that the term partial-birth is used by those opposed to the procedure; simply using the phrase so-called partial birth abortion is not sufficient without explaining who's calling it that. Partial-birth is not a medical term and has no exact parallel in medical terminology; intact dilation and extraction is the closest description. Also, it is not correct to call these procedures RARE — it is not known how often they are performed. Nor is it accurate to use the phrase LATE TERM ABORTION. Though we initially believed this term carried less ideological baggage when compared with partial-birth, it still conveys the sense that the fetus is viable when the abortion is performed. It gives the impression that the abortion takes place in the 8th or 9th month. In fact, the procedure called intact dilation and extraction is performed most often in the 5th or 6th month — the second trimester — and the second trimester is not considered "late" pregnancy. Thus "late term" is not appropriate. As an alternative, call it a certain procedure performed after the first trimester of pregnancy and, subsequently, the procedure.... Also note:
NPR doesn't use the term "abortion clinics." We say instead, "medical or health clinics that perform abortions." The point is to not to use abortion before the word clinic. The clinics perform other procedures and not just abortions.
While many readers may find the next graphic upsetting, since the AP, NPR and others are adopting these types of guidelines, it is vitally important for pro-life advocates and activists to be able to show those being misled by the media, what exactly "dilation and extraction" aka late term abortion really is.
Partial birth abortion is even worse, hence the liberal media not wanting to use the term because it is exactly what it says. Killing a child by "flipping the fetus to a feet-first presentation, carefully pulling the body out intact in order to gradually increase the dilation of the patient’s cervix, and finally being able to remove even the fetal head in one piece," so places like Planned Parenthood can "obtain intact fetal body parts."
They added additional guidance:
The term "unborn" implies that there is a baby inside a pregnant woman, not a fetus. Babies are not babies until they are born. They're fetuses. Incorrectly calling a fetus a "baby" or "the unborn" is part of the strategy used by antiabortion groups to shift language/legality/public opinion. Use "unborn" only when referring to the title of the bill (and after President Bush signs it, the Unborn Victims of Violence Law). Or qualify the use of "unborn" by saying "what anti-abortion groups call the 'unborn' victims of violence." The most neutral language to refer to the death of a fetus during a crime is "fetal homicide."
On the air, we should use "abortion rights supporter(s)/advocate(s)" and "abortion rights opponent(s)" or derivations thereof (for example: "advocates of abortion rights"). It is acceptable to use the phrase "anti-abortion rights," but do not use the term "pro-abortion rights". Digital News will continue to use the AP style book for online content, which mirrors the revised NPR policy. Do not use "pro-life" and "pro-choice" in copy except when used in the name of a group. Of course, when the terms are used in an actuality they should remain.
Another thing liberal media outlets absolutely refuse to report is that by 20 weeks, an unborn baby can feel the pain of of both late term abortion and partial birth abortion.
Via Charlotte Lozier Institute, updated December 2018: "Embryological development shows presence of pain sensory mechanisms and neurophysiology. The basic anatomical organization of the human nervous system is established by 6 weeks. The earliest neurons in the cortical brain (the part responsible for thinking, memory, and other higher functions) are established starting at 6 weeks. Nerve synapses for spinal reflex are in place by 10 weeks. Sensory receptors for pain (nociception) develop first around the mouth at 7 weeks , and are present throughout the skin and mucosal surfaces by 20 weeks. Connections between the spinal cord and the thalamus (which functions in pain perception in fetuses as well as in adults are relatively complete by 20 weeks.
MAJORITY OF AMERICAN VOTERS AGAINST 2ND/3RD TRIMESTER ABORTIONS
Despite the media decision to deliberate mislead via terminology, and the online noise being made by liberals, Democrat politicians, and Hollywood characters, the majority of the public is against 2nd and 3rd trimester abortions, according to Gallup who has been periodically polling the question "Thinking more generally, do you think abortion should generally be legal or generally illegal during each of the following stages of pregnancy. How about -- [RANDOM ORDER]?," since 1996.
This shows that while the liberal media and pro-abortion activists may be the loudest of the crowd and get more media coverage, average Americans are not in favor of late term abortions.
Since that poll was conducted over a year ago, before these radical and extreme late term abortion laws have been passed, we may see a rise in those numbers against late term abortions, and a decrease in the amount of people that think abortion should be legal in the first trimester as well.
Interestingly, despite the 60 percent that said abortion should be legal in the first trimester, that same May 2018 poll showed that when asked "Regardless of whether or not you think it should be legal, for each one, please tell me whether you personally believe that in general it is morally acceptable or morally wrong. How about abortion?" - 48 percent said "morally wrong," with 43 percent saying "morally acceptable."
Since 1997 they have received incomplete results or no abortion statistics from various states including Maryland, California, and New Hampshire. The latest figures from the CDC were 638,169 abortions in 2015. A total of 44,651,889 abortions have been reported to the CDC from 1973 to 2015.
Using the Guttmacher Institute numbers, we estimate there have been more than 59 million abortions in the United States from 1973 through 2018.
According to the CDC, 43.6 percent of the women who had abortions in 2015. had obtained an abortion previously in their life. 19.3 percent of women who aborted had two or more previous abortions.
In 2015, 36 percent of abortions were performed on non-Hispanic Black women. Only 12.6 percent of the U.S. population is non-Hispanic Black according to the 2010 census.
Abortion is and always will be a hot button topic, but when Roe vs Wade was decided by the Supreme Court, the media reported "the decision to end the pregnancy during the first three months belongs to the woman and her doctor, not the government," but now we see that eight liberal states and D.C. are passing bills to allow the killing of babies in the 2nd and 3rd trimester of pregnancy.
That was not the intent of Roe vs Wade.
