The pro-abortion movement is desperate — and shrill and frantic. As evidenced in Texas when the state legislature passed a law to ban late-term abortions, the rhetoric of the pro-abortion movement is now over the top.
Why is this happening? Because they know they are losing the battle for hearts and minds — and that new laws passed in Texas and Wisconsin make sense to the general public.
Right now, the focus is on a federal bill to ban abortions after five months when the baby can be scientifically proven to feel excruciating pain from the abortion. To the pro-abortionists, who continue to try to portray the baby as a “blob,” this proof of humanity totally undermines their main argument. So their mouthpieces shrilly parrot rhetoric that this measure is “extreme.” The legislation passed the House of Representatives and efforts are underway to get it to the floor of the U.S. Senate where pro-abortion Senators vow to defeat it, and President Obama promises to veto it.
Enter the pollsters. In a recent poll, the The Huffington Post found that Americans favor limiting abortion at five months or earlier by a 59 to 30% margin. And, a Washington Post/ABC News poll puts support at 64 to 27%. Drives the pro-aborts crazy. And fuels their shrill rhetoric.
