In a single day, America showed just how divided it really is over the value of life. This is sickening.
On Friday July 29, Louisiana government appealed a block on an abortion ban in order to help save babies from their mass execution. On the same day, Massachusetts Gov. Charlie Baker (R) signed a bill to provide abortion access up to birth.
Following Roe’s demise back in June, states have been passing, signing, advocating and promoting both pro-life and pro-death laws. It’s been a time of hope, but also a time of great despair for the states that lean on the side of aborting innocent babies.
On the side of life, however, an appeals court in Louisiana ruled in favor of abortion bans. The “ban can take effect and save babies from abortions while a pro-abortion lawsuit against it continues in court,” LifeNewsreported Friday.
Attorney General Jeff Landry requested a ban on the abortion procedures at Louisiana's three final abortion clinics. The bill still has to pass higher courts in the state, but the appeal prohibits a previous judge’s decision to block enforcement of said abortion bans.
Yippee for the side of life!
Sadly, bad news also erupted Friday. Baker signed legislation to legalize abortions for “basically any reason up to birth" in Massachusetts, as noted by our friends over at LifeNews.
Baker is in a unique position. He's for abortion, but also claims he's a Republican. Baker seems to think that abortion should be considered “reproductive health care,” even though abortion ends the life of at least one person. How is that “care?”
Baker was boastful in his statement released Friday.
This new legislation signed today builds on that action by protecting patients and providers from legal interference from more restrictive laws in other states. We are grateful for the compromise and dedication to the issue that our legislative colleagues demonstrated to make this important, bipartisan law a reality.
LifeNews provided a list from the Massachusetts Citizens for Life about the negative impacts of Baker’s order. Some of the most egregious effects were to “allow abortionists to do abortions in states that outlaw them,” enable chemical abortions to be provided "without a doctor's order," and allow abortionists to break the law and prevent “MA law enforcement from cooperating with out-of-state legal authorities.”
So the attitude is essentially to just let sh*t hit the fan and kill all the babies.
It’s a shame that we are still seeing states and leaders pass and affirm laws that end innocent life, but the win in Louisiana provides hope!
