Democrats’ Radical Abortion Agenda is Out of Step With the American People and an Outlier on the World Stage

As America awaits the final Supreme Court opinion for the Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization case, House Democrats held a hearing yesterday pushing their radical abortion until birth agenda. One witness, Dr. Yashica Robinson, could not even give an answer as to whether abortion up to the moment of birth should be legal or whether an unborn baby is a human being, even moments before birth. Another witness, Aimee Arrambide, answered affirmatively that men can have abortions.

THE FACTS ABOUT LIFE: 

  • An unborn child is a human life.
  • Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization is a case involving a Mississippi law that limits abortion after 15 weeks.
  • AT 6 WEEKS:
  • BY 10 WEEKS:
    • The unborn baby has arms and legs, fingers and toes.
    • The unborn baby is sucking his or her thumb.
    • The unborn baby can now sigh, stretch, move his or her head, mouth, and tongue.
    • The baby can kick and will jump if startled.
    • The unborn baby’s pain receptors have been developing for weeks (week 7).
  • BY 15 WEEKS:
    • All of the unborn baby’s major organs have formed.
    • The unborn baby has a fully developed heart that pumps 26 quarts of blood per day.
    • The unborn baby can feel pain.
    • Surgeries have been successfully performed on unborn babies at this age.

THE NUMBERS:

  • The U.S. is one of a small handful of nations, including China and North Korea, that allow late-term abortion on demand up to the moment of birth.
  • The American people overwhelmingly believe babies born alive should be protected.
  • According to a recent poll, 80% of Americans think abortion should be illegal in the third trimester.
  • According to a new Marist/Knights of Columbus poll, 61% of Americans say abortion should either be:
    • Illegal – 17%;
    • Left be up to the states – 44%.
  • The majority of Americans hold strong opposition to Congressional Democrats and the Biden administration’s support of taxpayer-funded abortions:
    • 58% oppose taxpayer dollars funding abortions in the U.S.
    • 77% oppose taxpayer dollars funding abortion in other countries.
    • 63% of Americans, including 42% of Democrats, oppose new federal rules that allow abortion pills to be sent through the mail without an in-person visit to a medical professional.
  • On the government forcing their radical agenda on Americans:
    • Three-quarters say healthcare professionals who have religious objections to abortion should not be forced to perform them.
    • 54% say organizations who have religious objections to abortion should not be legally required to provide insurance coverage for abortion.

MAKE NO MISTAKE: Far-Left Democrats will stop at nothing, including intimidating Supreme Court justices, to push an agenda that is wildly radical, out of step with the American people, and an outlier on the world stage.
