Sitting here in my third trimester, chugging ice water and enjoying the blessing of air conditioning, our little one wiggles and jiggles in my womb. The bigger she gets, the more she makes my belly dance. It’s an incredible experience. So I have a particularly difficult time with Hillary’s argument; an argument mirrored by the pro-infanticide crowd.
Should she arrive early, Baby Love would be “viable” (since that seems to be an important distinction for pro-abort types), meaning she can survive outside of the womb. The instances of clinical abortion specifically for the health the mother are so few, it’s not even a meritorious discussion. Most are for the lifestyle of the mother, with no regard to the potential of the life in the womb. How women who have nurtured an unborn child through birth can honestly support such flimsy non arguments is not something I’ll ever understand.
“My view has always been, this is a choice, it is not a mandate. The unborn person doesn’t have Constitutional rights. So in the third trimester of pregnancy there is room for looking at the life and the health of the mother.”
Hillary went to visit the ladies on ABC’s ‘The View’ Monday, where she was asked when an unborn child has Constitutional rights.
Paula Faris: “And secretary, I want to ask you about some comments that you made over the weekend on Meet the Press regarding abortion. You said, quote, the unborn person doesn’t have Constitutional rights. My question is at what point does someone have Constitutional rights? And are you saying that a child, on its due date, just hours before delivery, still has no Constitutional rights?”
Hillary Clinton: “Under our law that is the case, Paula. I support Roe v. Wade because I think it is an important (Applause) — an important statement about the importance of a woman making this most difficult decision with consultation by whom she chooses: her doctor, her faith, her family. And under the law and under certainly that decision, that is the way we structure it.”
Her remarks aren’t new, and neither is the argument, but consider that at thirty-one weeks, all five senses are formed. Our baby girls can hear us, she knows the voices she hears the most (and goes wild every time she hears her Daddy), she can feel pain, she doesn’t like being poked by nurses, but responds with wiggles when I rub my belly. But in Hillary’s America, she has zero rights and zero protections, and an abortionist can shove a needle filled with poison into the baby’s heart, causing cardiac arrest and ultimately death. If the poison isn’t enough, then they’ll just pull the baby apart, piece by piece.
Abortions of any kind are gruesome, particularly in the third trimester. Induction abortions are most common in the third trimester:
Day 1: To help ensure the baby will be delivered dead and not alive, the abortionist uses a large needle to inject digoxin or potassium chloride through the woman’s abdomen or vagina, targeting the baby’s heart, torso, or head. When the digoxin takes effect, the lethal dose causes a fatal cardiac arrest, and the baby’s life will end. (Even if the needle misses the baby, digoxin can still kill the baby when released into the amniotic sack, but will usually take longer to kill the child.)
During the same visit, the abortionist inserts multiple laminaria sticks, or sterilized seaweed, to open up the woman’s cervix.
Day 2: The abortionist replaces the laminaria and may perform a second ultrasound to ensure that the baby is dead. If the child is still alive, the abortionist administers a second lethal dose of digoxin or potassium chloride. During this visit, the abortionist may administer labor-inducing drugs.
The woman goes back to where she is staying while her cervix continues to dilate. The woman will usually wait a period of two to four days for her cervix to dilate enough for her to deliver the dead baby.
Day 3 or 4: The woman returns to the clinic to deliver her dead baby. If she goes into labor before she can make it to the abortion clinic in time, she will deliver her baby at home or in a hotel room. During this time, a woman may be advised to sit on a bathroom toilet until the abortionist arrives. If she can make it to the clinic, she will do so during her most heavy and severe contractions and deliver the dead baby.
If the child does not come out whole, the procedure becomes a D&E, or a dilation and evacuation. The abortionist uses clamps and forceps to dismember and remove the baby piece by piece.
Hillary is careful to keep her supposed thoughts on baby rights a legal issue as opposed to a moral one. It might be smart politically, but it doesn’t change the reality of the abortion procedure or the fact that life full of promise has been ended prematurely.
