Donald Trump wants to “permanently” allow killing children conceived in rape.
As reported on 9-16-2016 by USA Today:
On Friday Trump reinforced his commitment to three anti-abortion platforms and announced he would also back making the Hyde Amendment permanent law, saying in a statement:
“Hillary Clinton’s unwavering commitment to advancing taxpayer-funded abortion on-demand stands in stark contrast to the commitments I’ve made to advance the rights of unborn children and their mothers when elected president. I am committed to:
· Nominating pro-life justices to the U.S. Supreme Court.
· Signing into law the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act, which would end painful late-term abortions nationwide.
· Defunding Planned Parenthood as long as they continue to perform abortions and reallocating their funding to community health centers that provide comprehensive health care for women.
· Making the Hyde Amendment permanent law to protect taxpayers from having to pay for abortions.”
The Hyde Amendment like so many other laws in the United States allows the innocent babies to be killed in the womb for being conceived in rape/incest. Trump says he has “evolved” on his pro life stance but he still has a long way to go. He stated when questioned on the Today Show:
[dropshadowbox align=”none” effect=”lifted-both” width=”auto” height=”” background_color=”#ffffff” border_width=”1″ border_color=”#dddddd” ]Q: Would you want to change the Republican platform so that exceptions would be made on abortions in the case of rape, incest or to save the life of the mother?
A: “Yes I would. Absolutely, for the three exceptions, I would,” he said. Trump was then pressed further and asked if he would make an exception to protect the “health” of the mother. “I would leave it for the life of the mother, but I would absolutely have the three exceptions.”[/dropshadowbox]
Another time Donald Trump said,
“I’m pro-life, but with the caveats. It’s: Life of the mother (very important), incest and rape.”
“Caveat” in Latin means let him beware and comes from the verb “cavēre” (“to be on guard”). So what Trump is saying is that the babies in the womb conceived in rape better beware or be on guard. But babies in the womb have NO defense. Their mothers who conceive in rape are also “on guard” because of the abuse and stigma that comes on them when they choose life for their babies.
People who proclaim to be “pro-life” speak with such passion about protecting life but turn on a dime about rape. Incrementalists continue to sacrifice the rape conceived. Lawmakers exclude them from protection thinking they’re doing something noble. History shows people have killed innocent people believing they are doing what is right. ISIS is a great example. They kill innocent people believing they must get rid of the “infidels.” Does Trump think that way about the rape conceived? He said, “we have to have it, we have to have it” when talking about killing rape conceived babies in the womb? But sadly there is little talk about punishment and prevention of rape itself. The criminals walk free while mothers and children of rape conception suffer humiliation and abuse. Just having to listen to the continued conversations of whether people like me should be killed or not is appalling and traumatizing to those affected.
“Public funding of abortion providers is an insult to people of conscience at the least
and an affront to good governance at best.”
Mr. Trump, is it not an insult to mothers of rape conceived children to hear that their children aren’t worthy of protecting? Is it not an affront to the people conceived in rape to discuss our destruction in the womb as absolutely necessary?
Megan wrote on a previous blog post:
“I was a very young 18yr old when I was assaulted and raped. I found I was pregnant about 3months later. I thought long and hard and decided to keep my child (who is the greatest person I have ever had the privilege to know) what I find a shame is I had to actually hide the rape and lie saying I had a one night stand and kept my baby because people and society are actually more comfortable with and excepting of that decision. I also feared if my family knew the truth they wouldn’t accept and love my child the same way then if they knew their conception and partial DNA is linked to such a horrific act.”
Why are women and children still being shamed?
The children conceived in rape living inside the womb have no more “choice” to be there than any other human being.
For one human outside the womb to kill another human inside the womb for any reason is reprehensible. But to kill someone because one biological parent is a criminal is illogical, immoral, and incomprehensible.Yet pro lifers pat each other on the back for laws that exclude rape conceived babies from protection. If it weren’t for whites who believed slavery was wrong we’d probably still have slaves. When non conceived in rape people stand up for mothers and children of rape conception we will have the same dignity and equality as other humans. Slavery was once legal in the US. Murder of certain people has been legal in the world, i.e: Jews, Native Americans, blacks, the poor, females. Yet the world still does not recognize the rape conceived as deserving of life. World organizations, such as Amnesty International raise millions of dollars, spending much effort to have children conceived in rape killed.But they tout the fight for “human rights.”
Calling oneself “pro-life” while allowing abortion for some babies is hypocritical to say the least.
Donald Trump has appointed like minded Marjorie Dannenfelser to head his “pro-life coalition.” Dannenfelser is also very guilty of using the rape conceived. She has no problem killing rape conceived to save others!
[dropshadowbox align=”none” effect=”lifted-both” width=”auto” height=”” background_color=”#ffffff” border_width=”1″ border_color=”#dddddd” ]”I agree I agree that the rape exception is abominable. I also know that with it we were able to move forward and we have the potential of saving 15,000 to 18,000 a year.”
Why is the struggle to protect the rights of the rape conceived seemingly insurmountable? It is because the Creator of the rape conceived is not acknowledged. No human has ever been “created” by another human. Even in test tubes our DNA can not be created by humans. We alter what the Creator has made. While Donald Trump wants to permanently keep a law to kill rape conceived children he fails to understand that rapists do not create children. We’re not “products of rape” to be thrown away. We are humans just like Trump and Dannenfelser and all other humans.
Rape conceived persons and our mothers deserve dignity and equality of life like any other. If you understand the problem and want to help please email firstname.lastname@example.org today.
It is one thing to offer my life to save another person. That is MY choice. No one should use anyone else as a pawn or sacrifice.
