Right Up to the Point of Delivery

Feb 1, 2020

Democrat-led pro-abortion legislation that passed in New York last year allows unborn babies to be legally killed for basically any reason up to the moment of birth.

Similar kill-up-to-delivery legislation has been considered in Virginia, Rhode Island and other states—and for basically any reason. And now, Virginia’s new pro-abortion legislative majority is even trying to insert abortion as a “right” in the commonwealth’s Constitution! That would undercut all the pro-life protections and laws that have been laboriously built up in Virginia over the years following Roe v. Wade.

Vice President Mike Pence decried such laws saying, "The Democratic Party platform [now] supports forcing taxpayers to fund elective abortions and legalizing abortions for basically any reason through all nine months of pregnancy... This shameless embrace of a culture of death is startling to every American who cherishes life."

See my important update below – Mat.

The so-called "Reproductive Health Act" signed into law last year by New York Governor Andrew Cuomo authorized the murder of unborn babies up to the point of birth for any reason and revokes mandatory medical care for babies who are born alive after a botched abortion.

A child can be tortured and killed seconds before it is born in New York simply because it is seen as an “inconvenience" to some and a moneymaker for others. If the child happens to be born alive during an attempted abortion, it can be left to suffer and die. New York has dehumanized the child in the womb, including those born alive after a failed abortion. This is infanticide.

Preborn life has been devalued in many societies throughout history – including, lamentably, our own. The promotion of abortion as a personal "right" is one of our nation's greatest failings.

+ + Liberty Counsel is tirelessly working to move our nation back to the pro-life side of the issue.

The United States is one of only seven nations that allows elective abortions after 20 weeks of pregnancy, the point at which the scientific community widely agrees that the preborn child can feel pain. America is on the wrong side of this issue!

Liberty Counsel affirms that life begins at conception. We believe that preborn children are in fact children, not merely fetuses. Life is NOT expendable. It is an inherent, God-given right, and Liberty Counsel will continue to fight for its protection!

Your support and strategic investment in our efforts bolster our resolve to advance pro-life initiatives. You equip us to fight for the restoration of those values that declare every life has meaning and a purpose.

Please consider a special gift today to help Liberty Counsel in our ongoing efforts to defend life and the rights of the preborn. Every gift, no matter the size, will help us declare that life has value!

+ + Gosnell all over again...

The infanticide that New York legalized is akin to the atrocities committed by Kermit Gosnell, the now-imprisoned abortionist.

Gosnell, operating under the cover of providing "reproductive health services," brutally executed hundreds of live babies by stabbing them in their necks and severing their spinal cords with scissors and knives.

In May 2013, Gosnell was convicted of first-degree murder, conspiracy to kill, and involuntary manslaughter and was sentenced to life imprisonment. He was convicted of the murders of three infants and involuntary manslaughter after a botched abortion attempt killed a woman from an inhumanely administered drug overdose.

The most innocent among us are being savagely murdered in the womb. It's time to stop committing human genocide in this nation and make the womb a safe place again!

Liberty Counsel's legal teams are engaged in several key battles defending the rights of pro-life citizens. Chief among them, as you know, is the defense of Sandra Merritt, the whistle blower who exposed Planned Parenthood.

With your help, advancing the sanctity of human life is one of our core missions. Please give to help defend and protect innocent, human life!

Thank you, as always, for your support!

May God richly bless you,
