Whether it’s a helpless baby that has miraculously survived an attempt on its life, also known as an abortion, or a Supreme Court Justice deciding an abortion case, violence, intimidation, and force will be deployed by the acolytes of Big Abortion.
Senate Minority Leader, Chuck Schumer, demonstrated his comfort with violence in his diatribe yesterday:
“I want to tell you, Gorsuch. I want to tell you, Kavanaugh. You have unleashed the whirlwind, and you will pay the price. You won’t know what hit you if you go forward with these awful decisions.”
Mr. Schumer’s threatened the jurists not to uphold a Louisiana law which requires abortion clinics to have admitting privileges to a hospital within thirty miles.
Schumer’s dishonest response
When upbraided by Chief Justice John Roberts, as well as politicians of all stripes, Mr Schumer responded disingenuously:
“I’m from Brooklyn. We speak in strong language, I shouldn’t have used the words I did, but in no way was I making a threat. Of course I didn’t intend to suggest anything other than political and public-opinion consequences for the Supreme Court, and it is a gross distortion to imply otherwise.”
No, it is not a gross distortion to imply otherwise, as he was specifically targeting the two jurists nominated by Schumer’s enemy, President Trump.
Chuck Schumer gets no pass. The violence and intimidation of abortion taints him. This is the same man who didn’t think the Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act was even worthy of a Senate debate.
More dishonesty on ‘born-alive’ protections
He was asked just last month:
“On the Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act, Senator Sasse argues that this is needed because, under the current law, while you can’t outright kill a baby breathing outside the womb you can neglect it. What is your response?”
His response was again disingenuous:
“We — we voted on this before. It was defeated and Senate — and there’s a law in 2002 that is on the books — current law that covers everything Sasse is talking about. It’s a play to the hard right base. The American people don’t support it.”
The 2000 law did not make it a crime to doctors to deny medical care to the unique human being who survived her abortion, nor does any federal law.
His assertion that the American people don’t support born alive protections is inaccurate at best, and dishonest at worst. According to a survey conducted by YouGov last year, 82% of Americans somewhat or strongly oppose removing medical care for a viable child after the child is born.
Abortion is violence. Chuck Schumer’s rhetoric was simply in keeping with the violent and dishonest legacy of a practice with 60 million American victims.
