A lot of people forgot about former Virginia Governor Ralph Northam’s (D) disgusting abortion bill when his old yearbook photos were released. Northam couldn’t remember if he had dressed up in blackface or a Klan hood, and that story sucked all the oxygen out of the room. But we should remember Northam’s comments about “making the baby comfortable” before killing it if it is born alive in a Planned Parenthood clinic.
Where will Democrats draw the line on this? Apparently, they don’t have one. Maryland Democrats have proposed a bill that would allow babies to be killed up to 28 days after they are born.
You’re probably already thinking, “This has to be some kind of sick joke. There’s no way anyone would propose a bill that allows people to murder a 28-day-old baby.”
But it’s true.
Maryland state Senator William Smith has sponsored the “Pregnant Person’s Freedom Act of 2022.” Pregnant PERSONS. Because in Democrat fantasyland, men can get pregnant too.
The bill is designated Senate Bill 669, and you can read the text of it on the Maryland government website HERE. The first hearing for the bill has been set for March 15th.
The bill would prevent law enforcement from investigating if a woman or an abortion doctor fails to act in a “perinatal death.”
The word “perinatal” is what elevates this from a just-plain-evil bill to a bill that is so over-the-top-evil that normal people should recoil in horror from it. The word “perinatal” is not defined in Smith’s legislation. However, a separate Maryland law defines the “perinatal” period as running between the 20th week of pregnancy, to “1 to 4 weeks” after the baby is born. Four weeks = 28 days.
Not only is this the most radical lurch toward evil that we’ve ever seen the Democrat Party make, but the bill would also rewrite Maryland’s laws on manslaughter and murder. It’s a sad fact that some women murder their newborns. With Joe Biden’s southern border fentanyl onslaught that is hammering America right now, the statistics on newborn murders would probably shock all of us (if anyone bothered to track it).
We see news stories about this sad phenomenon all the time. Women toss their newborns in dumpsters. Teenagers give birth in public toilets and leave the baby to die. A mom drives the car into a lake with the baby in the backseat and leaves her there to drown.
But whenever these stories happen, the cops always investigate, and the mothers are almost always charged with manslaughter or murder. As they should be. But under Senate Bill 669 in Maryland, state and local law enforcement would be completely prohibited from investigating if an abandoned baby is found dead beside the road. Too bad that the mother exhibited a “failure to care” for the baby under SB669. If the baby is under 28 days of age, she’ll face no charges and won’t be the subject of a criminal investigation.
A living, breathing, crying baby with her eyes open could be abandoned to freeze or starve to death, and this new Democrat bill says that’s okay. Nothing could be done to punish the person or persons who caused the baby’s death if SB669 becomes law.
The irony of this is that Maryland already has a “safe haven” law in place for newborns. There’s absolutely no reason to allow women to toss their babies in a dumpster. If a Maryland woman is unable or unwilling to care for a newborn, they can drop the baby off at a health clinic, hospital or police station – no questions asked! She doesn’t even have to tell them who she is, because the people receiving the baby on the spur of the moment aren’t allowed to ask her questions. The baby’s life becomes the priority.
But babies’ lives have no priority in the eyes of Democrats. If we won’t draw the line at murdering babies 28 days after they are born, how long will it be before Democrats extend that to include children up to 3 years of age? How about extending the abortion limits until the child is in kindergarten? Why not go all the way and extend it to the child’s 18th birthday?
Here’s the really scary thing about this bill. The Democrats control the Maryland House and Senate, and Republican Governor Larry Hogan is pro-abortion. This could actually become the law of the land in Maryland if the people don’t rise up to oppose it.
