New Mexico Abortion Ban Voted Down

For many, the claim to be Pro-Life is somewhat hollow. They say that they oppose abortion, except under certain conditions. If the mother’s life is in danger abortion is okay. In cases of rape or incest abortion should be allowed. But this is no more than a compromise to convince people to stop the use of abortion as birth control.

This incremental attitude seems to have been the motive behind a recent New Mexico bill. The bill would have band late term abortions.

A legislative committee in New Mexico has killed a proposed bill that would have banned abortion after 20 weeks—five months gestation—if the abortionist believed that the child was viable.

Sen. Bill Sharer, R-Farmington, had introduced S.B. 243 to stop the murder of children past what he considers to be the point of viability.

The bill was struck down. The reason is that some felt that it was an attempt to tell a woman what she can or cannot do with her body. In other words, the woman’s choice take precedence over the life of the child.

What we should learn is that though the Liberal is wick, they are not stupid. They know at what this bill was aiming. It was a chipping away at the legality of abortion. The problem though is the bill and the premise from which such legislation is born.

It is working from the assumption that the Roe v. Wade decision legalized abortion. This thinking assumes that the Supreme Court has the power or the right constitutionally to legalize anything. But the constitution (Article I Section 1) tells us something entirely different.

Only the Congress can pass laws. So if states wish to stop abortion, all they need to do is publicly recognize the unborn as citizens and arrest and prosecute the clinics and mothers. Convict and punish them for conspiring to commit murder.

The problem is the same in the states as in presidential campaigns. The politician wishes to gain your vote based on a view but is unwilling to uphold the law. This bill nor any others will stop abortion until our people see it as murder and demand the punishment that that crime deserves.
