More DANCING for DOLLARS in DC: yesterday’s House vote on the “Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act” is nothing more than a cash cow. Have you had enough of this? I have.
There are millions of dollars worth of campaign contributions to be made by NOT resolving the issue of a woman’s right to choose when she will give birth. Both sides of the political drama benefit, but we, the people out here in reality land, become collateral damage.
Women who seek terminations at 20 weeks or beyond have serious medical conditions that are exacerbated to life threatening status by pregnancy. If an exception is actually given for such cases, all cases will end up as exceptions EXCEPT women without access to primary, let alone specialized, care. It should have been called the “Death to Poor Women With a Life Threatening Pregnancy Act.”
By the way, what about a Pain-Capable BORN Child Protection Act? No campaign contributions for that one? Didn’t think so.
