Post-Vegas, Will Someone Please Help Ted Cruz Pass This Law?

Forget what you’re hearing from politicians in Washington about Las Vegas.  The fate of this upcoming bill will tell you far more than their words how broken they are over the loss of human life.

The biggest enemy to legal abortion in America has become medical science. Pretending what is conceived in the womb is anything but a living human being renders one a foolish anti-intellectual. But admitting that what is conceived in the womb is a living human being, while still promoting legal abortion renders one an advocate for murder.

Anyone who has put themselves through the emotional torture of watching the sonogram of an abortion and seen the baby recoil and attempt to evade the abortionist’s torture device that is attacking them knows that targeted innocent child is suffering.

Anyone who has watched the stomach-turning undercover videos that reveal Planned Parenthood officials laughing about twitching legs and admitting, “Let’s just give [pro-lifers] all the violence, it’s a person, it’s killing, let’s just give them all that,” knows those targeted innocent children are suffering.

So finally in an act worthy of their position of power, the U.S. House of Representatives has done something to defend these defenseless human beings. Passing the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act, which would ban abortions after 20 weeks (the time after which medical science knows that the living human being can feel and experience the pain associated with being ripped limb from limb), the legislation now moves onto the Senate where it faces a stiffer challenge.

The Democrat Party is completely beholden to Planned Parenthood and the abortion lobby. The idea that they will have any defectors is extremely unlikely, even those who despicably campaign as pro-life like Indiana Senator Joe Donnelly. And the Republican’s tenuous majority includes a handful of Senators who are cowards and historically complicit with appeasing the abortion death cult. To get the bill through to President Trump, it is going to take herculean leadership. And at least one Republican Senator is stepping up to offer it.

Texas Senator Ted Cruz has announced his intent to pressure the Senate to take up the legislation and pass it, as unlikely as that seems. In a series of tweets, Cruz stated what we all know, but our leaders are terrified to admit:

“Each life is a gift of God. Without life, there is no liberty, which is why I remain proudly and steadfastly dedicated to defending the lives of the unborn. Yesterday the House passed the Pain Capable Unborn Child Protection Act. It’s a measure that would ban abortions at the point that unborn babies can feel pain. This legislation is a crucial step to recognizing the sanctity of life. It is my hope the Senate will swiftly take action to pass this bill and send it to @POTUS’s desk to be signed into law. #Stand4Life”

Again, it’s hard to imagine that there are 60 votes in the Senate to overcome the Democrat Party’s filibuster of this common sense legislation. How sad is that? Babies futilely attempt to scurry away from the end of the abortionist’s suction tip and the United States Senate can’t find 60 members to help them.

In the wake of the Las Vegas massacre, the same activists and politicians who are falling all over themselves to tell everyone how much they care about protecting people will rise up to oppose this law that protects babies from being tortured to death.

If individuals are allowed to decide for themselves that life in the womb is not worth protecting, why wouldn’t other individuals feel entitled to decide for themselves that life out of the womb is not worth protecting? Life is valuable or it’s not. So for all the political posturing post-Vegas, watch what happens to this Pain-Capable law. It will tell you all you need to know about whether our leaders are serious about wanting to protect the innocent.

Godspeed, Ted.
