It is time that we debunk the stupidity of many. and really see what is a fetal heartbeat or not.

https://www.livescience.com/65501-fetal-heartbeat-at-6-weeks-explained.html

 

That is what an embryo is at 6 weeks of any pregnancy. and I have seen the pictures that have been disseminated by the  idiots that want us to believe that we are killing babies.

Previously Unreleased Poll Shows Alabama Voters Disapprove of Extreme Abortion Ban

 

In 2012, Democrats expanded their majority in the Senate largely because two Republican candidates made comments about abortion and rape that were drastically out of step with the public opinion. In Missouri, Senate nominee Todd Akin claimed that rape doesn’t result in pregnancy because “if it’s a legitimate rape, the female body has ways to try to shut that whole thing down.” A few months later, the GOP nominee in Indiana, Richard Mourdock, described a pregnancy resulting from rape as a “gift from God.”

 

Akin and Mourdock lost their races in states that Mitt Romney won easily. Their comments not only doomed their own campaigns but became ammunition against every Republican running that year. For Democrats, if anything was a gift from God, it was these two men’s thoughts on abortion.

 

Today, after Republicans in Alabama passed a ban on abortions even in cases of rape or incest, Democrats have reason to hope that 2012 may be repeating itself.

 

Alabama is a conservative, pro-life state, but most voters there actually don’t support banning abortion in cases of rape and incest. A poll conducted last year but never before released showed that just 31 percent of voters in Alabama support banning abortion in all cases, while 65 percent of voters oppose banning abortion in cases of rape and incest.

 

Now that President Donald Trump has put two justices on the Supreme Court, Republicans and anti-abortion activists face the tantalizing possibility of finally getting the justices to strike down Roe v. Wade, the 1973 case guaranteeing the right to an abortion. If the court doesn’t want to go that far, it could still uphold increasingly onerous limits on abortion, drastically shrinking access to the procedure across much of the country. To this end, Republicans have rushed to pass a number of bills to limit abortions and challenge Roe. On Friday, Missouri lawmakers approved a ban on abortion after a fetal heartbeat is detected, about six weeks into a pregnancy. With the expected signature of the state’s GOP governor, Missouri will be the fifth state to enact such a ban this year. These heartbeat bills, which would ban abortion before most women realize they are pregnant, do not have exceptions for rape and incest.

 

This week, Alabama took it even a step further. Republicans there passed a draconian abortion ban outlawing all abortions except when the life of the mother is in danger. Again, there are no exceptions for victims of rape or incest.

Democrats need to capitalize on the extremeism of the neoRepublican Party by being more centerist. Yes, focus on the possibility of GOPers overturning Roe v Wade but NO, do NOT focus on eliminating private health insurance for one example.


Elizabeth Warren isn’t centrist. But she’s got a pro choice platform.  My vote is for her right now. Nobody is controlling my body.

As usual, government has no clue what their talking about by enacting heartbill laws .

An ultrasound will usually show electric activity in an embryo’s forming heart at about six weeks of pregnancy, said Jen Villavicencio, an OB/GYN and member of The American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists. She said although that activity is not the same as a heartbeat that pumps blood, she often uses the term “heartbeat” with her patients at that point because they are familiar... with that terminology.

Villavicencio said it technically is an inaccurate description.

“I think that when you are legislating biology in this way, you need to be really, really precise,” she said.

 

As usual, misinformation is what the Evangelists use in order to control their believers. They are the worse communicators of what real Chrisitanity means. and may have compare them with the Anti Crhist

I can not believe that this representative truly thinks this stuff....when is date rape acceptable...huh, maybe when you have a bunch of control freaks in charge.....rape from incest also not rape????

Are they willing to increase the budgets - both federal and states- to help raise these children?

I agree, Scout.  Th last thing the country needs is to swing far too Left.  The extremes have never served us well.  The country wants to go Left, we should go there incrementally and over several election cycles.
