How rude of the child’s heart to start beating without telling its mother?
Georgia just passed a bill that would not permit abortions after a fetal heartbeat is detected. The heartbeat bill is being denounced by the pro-choice movement as an assault on the rights of women.
Nevermind the rights of the child.
The idea that an innocent human being with a heartbeat
shouldn’t be executed is lost on the party that refuses to execute convicted
murderers and would allow incarcerated felons to vote.
Strict adherence to the dogmas of pro-abortionism is not
limited to the bra-burning feminists of the 1970s.
Millennials like AOC are equally appalled that the unborn
are so inconsiderate that they refuse to differentiate themselves from a late
In a tweet, AOC said this:
There are two things that need to be discussed from this
The Tired Trope of
Evil Pro-Life Men
The left thinks that the only noble men are men who
self-identify as women or as feminists.
Any male who opposes abortion must be an incel who wants to subjugate
women. The replies to AOC’s tweet were
horrendous. There are so many instances
of individuals telling men that they are not permitted to have an opinion on
I’ll make three quick points.
- Worldly men are pro-choice because being pro-choice means they can be sexually immoral.
- Christian men are pro-life because protecting women and children from harm is a role that has been given to us. It is only by God’s grace that the desire to sin is suppressed and a desire for the noble fulfillment of God’s design is carried out.
- Women are pro-life too.
A Backdoor Ban of What?
My problem with the heartbeat bill is that abortion is still
permitted, albeit within a certain window.
It does nothing to stop the use of abortifacients. It is good to have real world restrictions,
but sometimes those restrictions dull the main point. Here’s what I mean… It is good that partial
birth abortion is out of bounds, we don’t want that happening. So we scale it back to viability. Then you have to ask, if a child isn’t viable
can it be aborted? So we get back to the
first sign of a heartbeat. So what if
there is no heartbeat? See the problem?
The pro-life movement runs the risk of ceding ground for practicality’s
sake. The morning-after-pill is still
AOC is wrong to say this is a backdoor ban of abortion since
there are still methods available.
However, her point raises another issue that ties back to my first point
regarding their outrage.
Perhaps it is perceived to be a backdoor ban on sexual
Why do I say this?
People have gotten so used to being able to have sex
whenever they please that abortion is a nice safety net. If they find out they are pregnant, they can
just off the kid. These are abortions
usually after a heartbeat is detected; otherwise, a women would have no reason
to believe she is pregnant (which is AOC’s point). But what committed pro-choice individuals who
are sexually immoral don’t acknowledge is that every sexual encounter comes
with some risk of pregnancy. Only
abstinence is 100%. If they acknowledged
that, they would be downing the morning-after-pill like candy.
If you ban abortions after a heartbeat is detected, you are
requiring individuals to commit to the prospect that their immorality is going
to come with real world consequences i.e. the creation of another human
being. No one likes being confronted with their sin

Sometimes Sin And Selfishness Win Out Anyway
According to Fox32
Chicago, “A newborn baby was found
abandoned on top of a trash can Tuesday in Hermosa on the Northwest Side.”
This is the evil of abortion when not masked by medical
pretense and women’s rights chicanery.
“This poor kid was
minutes away from having no chance at all,” Fitzmaurice said. “The baby was
cold as concrete. I wasn’t ready to lose this one, and neither were the

abandoned babies] don’t survive,”
And neither do aborted babies.
