Ultrasound law plays weak pro-life hand, rejects abolition

On Dec. 9 pro-life organizations were heralding the ultrasound law in Kentucky not being struck down by the Supreme Court.

What you need to understand, however, is that such laws are why the slaughter of the preborn continues. Yes — you heard me right.  

The pro-life organizations have sustained the murder of the preborn for nearly 50 years now.

The ultrasound law is yet the latest example of bad law, bills, and strategy pursued by pro-life organizations.  

The pro-life movement spent countless hours and millions of dollars making sure women can give “INFORMED CONSENT” to the murder of their preborn children via the ultrasound bill.

Consider just these two quotes (among many others) by pro-life leaders in just one news story:

President of Susan B. Anthony, Marjorie Dannenfelser, said in a statement provided to The Western Journal. “The abortion industry has proven incapable of policing itself and will stop at nothing to keep vulnerable women in the dark for the sake of profit, which is why state laws protecting women’s right to INFORMED CONSENT are so important,” she continued.

In a statement to The Western Journal, Catherine Glenn Foster, president of Americans United for Life, also hailed the “legal victory today of Kentucky’s common-sense INFORMED CONSENT provision simply ensuring that abortion facilities offer women who are thinking about abortion visual, ultrasound confirmation of the humanity of the life in their womb.”

When these pro-life leaders are talking about women giving “informed consent” — they are talking about women consenting to the murder of their own sons or daughters.  

When will stop the nonsense of nearly 50 years now with such laws, bills, and strategy?  

The truth is we should work to see the preborn protected by law and those who murder them charged with the crime of homicide — and accept nothing less.

We need to quit thinking we need to bow to the Supreme Court and spending years and millions on this failed and foolish strategy. Rather, we need to demand of our state magistrates that they interpose and stop this bloodshed.

The blood of these children cries out from the ground and our duty is to demand it end — not pretend that we must wait for the Supreme Court to undo its tyranny. 

Let us begin to behave as Christian men and women, and repudiate the failed decadeslong strategy of the pro-life movement.
