The pro-infanticide U.S. Senators

First, the good news:

A picture is worth a thousand words. Click and check this:

And here are the physicians with the facts:
The survival rate for a baby born at 28 weeks is 84 percent,
and 89 percent of those babies are free of major handicap.

Now, the bad news:

You've heard the story about the wolf disguised as Grandma, but have you heard the one about the fascist disguised as a liberal? Don't ever trust a misogynist who says he's helping women by letting them kill their own babies. That is exactly what the misogynist Bill Clinton did when he was in the White House.

Below is the list of U.S. Senators who believed that a misogynist would protect the women of United States.

On Thursday, October 21, 1999, the following 34 members of the United States Senate voted in favor of infanticide:

Officially, the vote was a roll call vote on a ban of "partial-birth abortion." That term was created to refer to the intentional killing of a fully formed, live infant while most of its body is outside the mother's uterus but while the head remains inside. Relying on Roe v. Wade, the mother finds a willing physician. The procedure is gruesome, and any description of it sounds crude. However, the procedure is done by the physician reaching inside the mother's vagina, forcing open the mother's cervix, and grabbing hold of the infant's feet. Grabbing hold of the feet can require some manipulation. The physician then pulls the baby out feet first. When the baby's feet, legs, butt, torso, and shoulders are outside the mother's uterus (or even outside her body), the physician stops pulling the baby and prevents further deliver. The physician then jabs a sharp object (usually surgical scissors) into the base of the baby's skull. The physician then puts a plastic tube into the hole made in the back of the baby's skull, and the physician then attaches the tube to a small vacuum cleaner. Using the vacuum cleaner, the physician sucks out the baby's brains.

By law, this "procedure" may be used on babies right up until the moment of birth.

In recent times, babies born as much as three months premature usually survive those crucial first forty days after birth, and most will make it to their first birthdays.

The "procedure" is invasive of a woman's body and would NEVER save the life of a mother: If the baby has been delivered live to the point of only the head being inside the mother, allowing the head to be delivered while the baby still lived would in no way risk the mother's life.

In October 1999, 28 men and 6 women in the United States Senate voted in favor of infanticide.

It's not "pro-choice."
It's not "pro-reproductive-freedom."
It's not "pro-a-woman's-right-to-choose."
It's not "pro-abortion."
It's not "pro-partial-birth."

May God have mercy on their souls.
