The prophet Isaiah wasn’t just waxing poetic when he gave that warning about those who called evil good and good evil. He would have railed against people in our day with the same voice.
Read what this ‘medical professional’ has to say about the moral virtue of ripping babies out of wombs like Assyrian armies of old and ask yourself whether Isaiah might have directed these same words to them:
Woe to those who call evil good, and good evil;
Who substitute darkness for light and light for darkness;
Who substitute bitter for sweet and sweet for bitter!
Woe to those who are wise in their own eyes
And clever in their own sight! — Isaiah 5:20,21 NASB
During a hearing in Nebraska, lawmakers decided whether to ban dismemberment abortions and dilation and evacuation (D&E) which are performed in the latter part of pregnancy when the baby can likely feel pain. The bill in question is LB814.
Some abortionists tried to make the moral case for performing an abortion, while former Planned Parenthood workers who have come over to the pro-life position made the moral case to oppose them.
“This bill is not about patient safety or about helping a physician provide quality medical care to a patient,” she said. “It is a ban on a very safe method of abortion.”
If the bill became law, it would make it a crime for doctors to use their best medical judgment in treating their patients, Steinauer said. She mentioned treating a patient that needed a second-trimester abortion because of a medical illness, so that she could be there to care for her other children. Another patient she treated that same day was 16 and hadn’t realized she was pregnant until after the first trimester because she had irregular periods.
“It would go against my medical oath to not be able to offer the safest possible method of abortion to my patients in the second trimester,” she said.
It should be up to patients and doctors, not dictated by lawmakers, she said. — JournalStar
The argument against the practice of that kind of abortion included:
However, Dr. Kathi Aultman, a former Planned Parenthood abortionist who now is pro-life, disputed Steinauer’s claims.
“I support this bill because it prevents the infliction of needless pain and suffering on innocent human beings, and preserves the integrity of the medical profession,” Aultman said. “There’s no medical reason that the baby has to be alive at the time this procedure is done, unless you’re trying to get fresh fetal tissue for research or something.”
Growing evidence indicates that unborn babies are capable of feeling intense pain by 20 weeks, if not before. This means unborn babies likely are suffering excruciating pain when they are aborted by dismemberment.
“This practice truly has no place in modern medicine and should not be happening in our society,” said state Sen. Suzanne Geist of Lincoln, the sponsor of the bill.
According to the Nebraska Department of Health and Human Services, 32 dismemberment abortions were done in 2018 in Nebraska on unborn babies at least 13 weeks of pregnancy. — LifeNews
Keep that ‘up to patients and doctors’ argument handy.
If and when the government ever gets their grubby mitts on the health care they will realize they do not have infinite funding, and will start being selective on who exactly gets what care.
In the UK, Charlie Gard and Alfie were both refused the right to pursue treatment, even if parents sought it out of country at their own expense. Because a medical board and a judge had final say over whether mom and dad could take their baby out of the hospital to see a doctor with the training and tech to save his life.
And Bloomberg has said as much when he spoke frankly about telling older patients with cancer that they would have to go home untreated.
