I sent Democrat committee members an email today urging them to vote for HB 125, the Heartbeat Bill in Ohio. I touched on when life begins, when an unborn child’s heart beats for the first time, that abortion kills an unborn child, and that abortion hurts women. This is, in part, the response I got from one of the representatives:
“I understand your concerns and value your opinion on this important issue. As a health care attorney and former Vice Chair of the Health Committee in the Ohio House of Representatives, women’s health and privacy rights are very important to me. Recently, several pieces of legislation have been introduced regarding abortion.”
While I really appreciate a personal response, truly I do, but this is not exactly what I was hoping for. Although I do know that finding a prolife Democrat is harder than it looks, it would behoove all of us to know that while we have labels like conservative, liberal, moderate, republican and democrat, that somehow we can do the RIGHT THING to abolish abortion and abolish the selfishness of women that believe their right to privacy is more important than a child’s right to live.
A pregnant woman has a unique individual living within her body for a short period of time. At the time of conception, a child has been given it’s very own DNA blueprint and soon will have his/her own separate finger prints and blood type.
By 18 DAYS this unique person’s heart will beat for the first time. By the 9th week of gestation, he/she will be complete; all he/she will need is nourishment and time to grow until the time to be born.
In the state of Ohio, it is illegal to smoke in public places – PERIOD. Since it has been proven that second hand smoke does cause cancer and can KILL you, it has been determined that people may not smoke around others in a public place thereby keeping others from getting sick and possibly dying. That being said, we can conclude that the state of Ohio intervened on the behalf of others that do not want to die of lung cancer, in this particular case; those that work in restaurants, bars, clubs, etc. This surmises that the state of Ohio is protecting us from second hand smoke that can lead to cancer and perhaps death but a woman can go and kill her unborn child, at any time during gestation, for any reason because she has a RIGHT TO PRIVACY.
The issue of abortion has been brought before the committee regarding HB 125 in a clear manner that not only suggests but enforces one clear fact:
ABORTION KILLS A HUMAN BEING NOT YET BORN. Essentially, you can go to your local abortion clinic and have your unborn baby forcibly torn from your body but you can’t smoke there.
Privacy rights kill children, plain and simple. The only person in the equation that has any rights is the woman. The baby does not have a right to Life and the baby’s father does not have the right to stop the abortion, to stop the death of his own baby.
Privacy rights…privacy rights…KILL.
