Democrats introduce House bill calling abortion a human right

Pro-lifers call abortion an abuse of human rights.

As an example, reacting to the recent news that new justice Brett Kavanaugh had cast the deciding vote against the Supreme Court taking up appeals from Kansas and Louisiana to remove Planned Parenthood from Medicaid funding, March for Life president Jeanne Mancini said: “Abortion is not healthcare, it is a human rights abuse. Until Planned Parenthood ceases to perform abortions they should not receive any money from taxpayers.”

But if Democrats have their way, killing tiny innocent human beings would be called a “human right” — a perversion of the English language which exceeds even George Orwell’s Newspeak.

On December 10, 2018, Human Rights Day, Massachusetts Democrat Rep. Katherine M. Clark introduced H.R. 7228: Reproductive Rights are Human Rights Act of 2018. Clark said: “Documenting and reporting human rights violations is a major part of eradicating their existence. This bill would ensure that our State Department maintains its vital role as an international watchdog and protector of women’s rights no matter the ideology of our White House.”

The bill has 51 co-sponsors, all Democrats. Rep. Lois Frankel (D-Florida) said in a statement: “Women’s rights are human rights. There is no greater right for women than to be in charge of their own bodies.”

HR 7228‘s purpose is “To amend the Foreign Assistance Act of 1961 to include in the Annual Country Reports on Human Rights Practices a section on reproductive rights”. “Reproductive rights,” in turn, are to include the right of “women and girls” across the world to “access…safe abortion services, in accordance with such country’s laws, including post-abortion care”.

Reporting for LifeNews on Dec. 11, Micaiah Bilger writes:

The pro-abortion bill, the Reproductive Rights are Human Rights Act, would require the U.S. State Department to include abortion on demand and other reproductive rights in its annual human rights report. It is a reaction to the Trump administration, which, earlier this year, prioritized real human rights issues by removing references to the so-called “right” to abort an unborn child from the report….

The report represents a significant change from pro-abortion President Barack Obama’s administration, which promoted the killing of unborn babies for any reason up to birth as a woman’s “right.”

In contrast, the Trump administration has been focusing on policies that protect both women and their unborn children.

Responding to criticism about the report, the State Department said it is not “downgrading coverage of … women’s issues.” Rather, it now will focus on ending the most “egregious” of human rights abuses against women and families in the world, including forced abortion and sterilization.

Under the pro-abortion Obama administration, one section of the report was called “Reproductive Rights.” The Trump administration removed that section and added a new one called “Coercion in Population Control.” ….

“This erasure puts real lives in danger,” said NARAL President Ilyse Hogue. “Using backdoor tactics to erase all mention of reproductive rights—including abortion, contraception, and maternal mortality—from vital reports and resources in order to push an extreme, ideological agenda is a true testament to just how dangerous and corrupt this administration is.”

Planned Parenthood, the Center for Reproductive Rights, NARAL and 42 other pro-abort oganizations endorsed HR 7228 and promoted it on social media in connection with Human Rights Day.

In a tweet, Planned Parenthood’s new president, Leana Wen, thanked the pro-abort House Democrats for introducing the bill.

Meanwhile, President Trump continues to keep his campaign promise to pro-lifers by:

“There is no greater right for women than to be in charge of their own bodies.”

Last night on 90 Day Fiance I saw a woman got pregnant again and she’s devastated. She can’t take birth control because she’s breastfeeding and her fiancé doesn’t like to use condoms. Yet she CHOSE to have sex with him anyway. Such a fine example of women “being in charge” of their bodies.

These libtards will manipulate language to suit their needs (think gender). Actions have consequences and changing the language doesn’t change the results (think dead babies).

These sick POSs are captives of Satan, most willingly. Next on their evil agenda will be “post-birth abortion” and elimination of the infirmed and elderly. Nobody will be safe in the coming global 1984 environment.

Fine. Just perform a vasectomy on every male child at birth. Then a woman would not be able to trap a man into marriage.

Dims always label products and services as some kind of right. One thing I notice though is that right always results in government taking money from one group of people to give another group of people a Right.

How is murder a human right, when all major religions forbid murder?

Wow! So, “government” can make a mortal sin a “right”? Does God know about this?

Look at the clever ploy of playing this off as a “Trump against everyone else” issue. Even by their own rhetoric, “women’s rights” are more important than human life? Really? Does God know about this?

What else can we expect from a political party that booed God during its last national convention? What else can I say but the Democratic National Party should be prosecuted under the RICO Statutes? This is what we got from the Kennedy family: A near-great President with vision, cut down in his prime, and a younger degenerate brother who gave us this Abortion Legacy. (Or he did everything to make the abomination permanent, at the very least). On the plus side, many people throughout America have been having second thoughts about abortion. Both the rate of abortion and the number… Read more »

That’s really twisted and sick if you think about it. A license to kill your own child.

So prostitution is OK with this Frankel I guess.

I don’t know much of anything about Katherine Clark except she was apparently hand picked as a communist to replace communist Ed Markey and previously had extensive far-left connections. We read about the communists (aka progressives or leftists) controlling public discourse through control of the msm and about our naïveté in accepting their language of “choice” and “rights,” because the latter concedes the argument before it begins. But it’s also the Republicans who from the get-go provide cover for the actual communists in government by giving them cover as “Democrats.” Imagine how different things would be today had the Republicans… Read more »

This is what the demon-Democrats want to kill off with every abortion of a human being, each & every one created by God Himself. You’d think they would WANT as many “brains” as possible to be born, to use their gifts for a better world… NOT! […] THE HUMAN BRAIN (Friday Church News Notes, October 19, 2018): –Christof Koch, chief scientist and president of the Allen Institute for Brian Science, says, “The brain is by far the most complex piece of highly excitable matter in the known universe by any measure. We don’t even understand the brain of a worm”… Read more »

The Demoncrats denigratingly refer to LIFE ITSELF as an “IDEOLOGICAL AGENDA.” I’d like to be a “fly on the wall” when they repeat that to Christ’s face when they stand before Him on Judgment Day.

And kudos to the Trump Admin for REMOVING the “Reproductive Rights” malarky section & replacing it with an anti-abortion section appropriately entitled “COERCION in [the name of the anti-life fraud known as] Population Control.”

While sex is fun, it is not recreation. It is procreation. Everybody has free birth control. Abstinance never results in pregnancy. Learn to control yourself.

The Left insist that abortion is somehow a guaranteed “human” right…as they tell us the US Constitution can’t guarantee the 2A! LOL! Imbeciles.

Yep. There’s another one floating around to make any attempt to divest from Israel or to not purchase their products a hate crime. There are several states that already have this. They have “loyalty oaths” that people must sign to work.
