The most precious "sound"

Rate this post

What a joy parents must experience when they hear their child’s heartbeat for the first time via modern technology!  Witness this couple below.

But alas, that “sound” just might discourage a couple, or a woman, from a “needed action” aka abortion.  So says Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee…

Jackson Lee: Abortion A ‘Needed Action’; Refers to Babies’ Heartbeats As ‘Sounds’

Via CNS News: During the House floor debate on the Protect Life Act last week, Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee (D- Texas) defended abortion as a “needed action” and referred to the heartbeat of a fetus as a “sound”.  
Voicing her opposition to the measure on Thursday, Jackson Lee referenced a previous Texas law, “Just as the courts ruled unconstitutional and upheld the provision of the Texas law that required a doctor to talk first to a woman seeking an abortion and to allow or force them both to listen, uh, to sounds that, uh, might discourage this needed action, this is going to be held unconstitutional. This is not a law that can pass,” Jackson said.
The ‘sounds’ Jackson Lee refers to are heartbeats that doctors and women hear during a sonogram. Despite the Texas congresswoman’s efforts the Protect Life Act did pass the house as 15 House Democrats joined 236 House Republicans to pass the measure.
The legislation amends the Democrats’ Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act to prohibit federal funds from being spent on any health plan that includes coverage of abortion services.  The bill also provides conscience protections for health care workers who oppose abortion.
I know liberals are all about a woman’s “reproductive rights” and individual choice.  They claim conservatives and republicans have double standards when they want less government yet then have government intrude on the issue of abortion.
Well if government won’t step in to protect the innocent with no voice, who will?  We need to protect the innocent that makes “sounds” through a living heartbeat. Because it certainly won’t be representatives that define abortion as a “needed action”.

  1. Fantastic! This is great news indeed! Even if one life is spared it is worth it! 🙂
    Now if I may, I have one thing to add about Rep. S. Jackson Lee….
    She can, uh, kiss my @rse… 😉

  2. A heartbeat means LIFE. And a heartbeat inside a person who has her own heartbeat means the first heartbeat is another person.
    The pro-abortion crowd, like Congresswoman Lee, just do NOT want pregnant women to regard what’s growing in their wombs as even alive, even less that that life is human.

    Next week my wife and I travel to Texas to see our newest grandchild, Sean,now only 12 days old. It will be with deep gratitude. For, not only did his mother, our youngest daughter, lose her last child early in pregnancy (hypothyroidism), also a son, but I will baptize Sean and share a Hope with him and his parents and siblings that goes way beyond Lee’s reach and disdain for life. Sheila: There’s more to Life than your disdain for it. Hopefully you will know this before your last breath.

  4. There is ADOPTION.

      You wrote: “Maybe I should have asked how to impart some self esteem into these girls so that they don’t go from tragedy to tragedy, or continue self destruction, complicated by pregnancy”
      1. No one can “impart” self-esteem to anyone else. Self-esteem is earned — by working hard, by using well the gifts God had given us, by being good, by realizing that God had created us in His own image and knew us even we were a mere zygote, so He must see something worthwhile in us. As sage said so well: They don’t need self-esteem, they need God-esteem.
      2. Abortion not only won’t help their “self-esteem,” it’ll make it worse. As sage said, they’ll feel guilty about it all their lives, a guilt that only repentance and confession can erase.

    Thanks to Eowyn and sage-brush for the congratulations. Having seen multiple deliveries, and provided some form of anesthesia to many a mom, the lifeless child haunts me the most, even when everything has been done “right”. I refused to give anesthesia for elective abortions. Tragically, there was always a willing peer. In some cases, the mandate to save the mom’s life first left an even more ugly sense of failure within me when the baby didn’t make it. This was rare. I find it way too hard to praise God and give thanks in this kind of setting. In the end, I trust that He cared for them much better than I.
