Gov. Walker signed legislation yesterday banning abortions in Wisconsin after 20 weeks of pregnancy. “At five months,” he said, “that’s the time when that unborn child can feel pain.”
When he was president, Bill Clinton said he wanted to keep abortions “safe, legal and rare.” His wife, Hillary, has seconded that position on many occasions.
We know that Hillary lied when she said she wants abortions to be rare. To be exact, she opposed the ban on partial-birth abortions: if she is okay with killing a baby who is 80 percent born, there are no instances left for her to register an objection.
Now we know that Hillary lied when she said she wants to keep abortions safe. As soon as Walker signed the law protecting unborn babies from feeling pain, Hillary labeled his decision “dangerous.”
Hillary needs to elaborate on this. Why is it not uncomfortable—forget about dangerous—for a sensate human being to be pierced with a surgical knife? Why, for example, do these babies put their fingers up to the knife in an attempt to shield them from more pain? The public has a right to know what’s going on in her mind.
