Minnesota Dems Don’t Really Care About Choice When It Comes to Abortion

There’s always been the argument of “my body, my choice” when it comes to abortion. And Democrats in Minnesota have voted against a ban on partial-birth abortions. They believe that it is a woman’s choice to choose based on the advice of her doctors and science…not a bunch of politicians.

That’s all well and great that women can listen to their doctors, but there should be rules.

A partial-birth abortion usually happens once the fetus is completely viable in the outside world. It is also a blurry line between abortion and infanticide.

Once the baby is ready to be delivered, there is no reason why the baby shouldn’t be allowed to live.

At this point, we have to ask ourselves who gets the right to choose. If the baby is capable of living and breathing in the world, then it should be considered its own body — and it most certainly wouldn’t want to be killed if it was capable of voicing its opinion.

A baby needs to be protected — and that’s when politicians absolutely should intervene.

And yet, the Democrats in Minnesota want to make it so that abortion is available to everyone, regardless of how far along they are in their pregnancy or whether the fetus is capable of living outside of the womb.

Several amendments have been offered up by Republicans to protect the baby. And yet, each and every one of those has been voted down. Representative Bernie Perryman tried to make a second and third-trimester abortion be conducted in a hospital with a violation resulting in a felony charge. And Representative Debra Kiel tried to ban partial-birth abortions.

The Democrats seem content to hide behind the fact that late-term abortions are extremely rare. And even though rare, they still want to allow them to happen. You know, just in case.
