Perhaps one of the most contentious issues in American politics is abortion. The fight to end the practice of aborting unborn children has been raging within our society for decades.
It comes as no surprise that this issue would divide the current presidential candidates. While Donald Trump is strongly opposed to abortion, promising to overturn Roe v. Wade, Hillary Clinton, like most liberals adamantly supports the termination of a pregnancy.
During the final presidential debate, she was outspoken about the need for late-term abortions, a process that leads to the death of a fully-developed child. She claimed it was needed because there were cases where the life of the mother was at stake.
However, actual people within the medical industry are calling her on this lie.
From Proud Conservatives:
“While discussing late-term abortions during Wednesday’s debate, Hillary Clinton said, “The kinds of cases that fall at the end of pregnancy are often the most heartbreaking, painful decisions for families to make. I have met with women who have, toward the end of their pregnancy, get the worst news one could get that their health is in jeopardy if they continue to carry to term …”
As a nurse with many years of labor and delivery experience, I must correct the bold lie being told and believed since Hillary’s response is being touted by not only liberal rag sites but other mainstream sources, showing their complete ignorance on the issue.
First, late-term abortions are sometimes referred to as post-viability abortions. That’s important because viability means the fetus is able to live outside the womb. So, at any time after 24 weeks gestation, which is considered the “point of viability,” a baby can be delivered to save the mother while also allowing the child a chance to live. During a late-term abortion, the child is still delivered, only it’s delivered dead rather than alive after the infant has been killed.
As a nurse, I want to be absolutely clear: If a mother’s life is in danger at any time after 24 weeks, let alone in the 9th month, the infant can be delivered via c-section to save the mother. The infant is given a chance at life. It does not need to be killed to save the mother. Never in the 9th month would that ever be a thought for most healthcare professionals. That’s not healthcare. That’s murder. But, there’s more.
The nurse then goes on to describe the brutal process of a late-term abortion, how it intentionally ends the life of a child and endangers the mother.
The left have been championing abortion rights as some kind of win for women. They want you to believe that a woman’s right to choose to end her pregnancy protects her own freedoms from an invasive government. But that couldn’t be further from the truth. In today’s day and age, there are many options for a woman who is pregnant that do not involve ending the life of a child.
But the left hold onto abortion as some kind of badge of honor. It is one of the corrupt tenants of feminism that they will refuse to relinquish without a bloody fight.
The fact remains, however, that it violates the rights of the unborn child. Millions of American lives have been taken over the decades, legally, by our own physicians.
It’s time that comes to an end.
