Democrats are the Party of Death, and Their Lies About Abortion Continue to Prove That – RedState

The opinions expressed by contributors are their own and do not necessarily represent the views of RedState.com.

Since the overturn of Roe v. Wade, red state governors and legislatures have taken seriously their commitment to protecting the life of the unborn, much to the vexation of the Democrats who are still upset that their national “protection” that allowed them to murder children at will is no longer a constitutional right.

These claims have no basis in truth. There is no reason to allow unrestricted abortion, to allow babies born alive after a botched abortion to not receive care and die, or to give people access to potentially lethal drugs without proper examination by and the supervision of a physician.

These are the same people who are still refusing to write and fill prescriptions for Ivermectin and Hydroxychloroquine to treat COVID, but want to make the abortion pill easily accessible to everyone. There is not a shred of truth or integrity in their agenda, so, they do what they know how to do: They lie.

This started with the conflation of miscarriage and abortion. Leftists scared many women into thinking that if abortion is overturned, that D&Cs (dilation and curettage) a common procedure used for decades in the aftermath of miscarriages and ectopic pregnancies would no longer be available to them. Who helped lead this charge? The Biden Administration, straight from The White House account:

In response to this blatant lie, Mark Hemingway wrote this:

Democrats have run hard on abortion this election cycle. Since the Supreme Court in June overturned the Roe v. Wade ruling finding a right to abortion in the U.S. Constitution, Democrats have spent $320 million on midterm campaign ads favoring abortion rights, 10 times the $31 million they’ve spent on ads related to inflation, which was consistently rated as voters’ top concern. 

They have used those ads and public appearances to advance a legal interpretation of abortion as including miscarriages and other problem pregnancies to suggest  misleadingly, abortion foes say  that under Republican restrictions women would run afoul of abortion law for the care they receive for common but serious and even life-threatening prenatal complications.  

[…]

Every state with laws restricting abortion has a clear exemption for treatments to save the life of the mother, and such exemptions cover ectopic pregnancies.

But by pushing for a more expansive definition of “abortion,” Democrats evidently hope to raise alarm and make it harder for Republican lawmakers to justify and win political support for abortion restrictions.

Because if they can change the definition of what an abortion is, they can expand and then demand these rights be enshrined. This is why you are hearing terms like, “Abortion is healthcare,” “reproductive rights,” and “reproductive justice,” now being bandied about. PolitiMath also decried the straight-up lies peddled by the Left on ectopic pregnancies.

The Left. The Media. The Medical Community. Lockstep in their lies and the drumbeat of women’s rights being taken away. All to justify the right to kill babies. It’s not just sickening, it’s dangerous and deadly.

They are using the same tactics with the usage of mifepristone, the abortion pill. Democrats, activist doctors, and the apparatchiks in the legacy media are painting a medieval plot by Republicans to outlaw the pill’s use. Two cases now on the federal docket are challenging state restrictions on the use of this pill, saying that they go against the federal guidelines established by the Food & Drug Administration (FDA).

From Axios:

A pair of lawsuits challenging abortion pill restrictions in North Carolina and West Virginia look to settle the question on whether states can regulate and restrict drugs that have been approved by the FDA.

Soon after the Supreme Court overturned Roe v. Wadethe Justice Department released guidance stating that states cannot ban mifepristone, which is used in medication abortions. But that hasn’t stopped red states from trying, and these two new lawsuits are now setting the stage for a fight over federal preemption.

Details: The North Carolina lawsuit challenges state curbs including a requirement the pills be dispensed in person by a physician in a certified surgical facility after a required counseling session and a 72-hour waiting period.

  • The lawsuit argues that a state “may not impose additional controls — including restrictions that FDA has specifically rejected — that upset the carefully balanced regulatory scheme established by federal law,” specifically referring to the Federal Food, Drug and Cosmetic Act.
  • The challenge was filed by Amy Bryant, a North Carolina physician, who said in a press release that abortion pills restrictions are “not supported by medicine or science.”

In West Virginia, GenBioPro — the maker of generic mifepristone — filed a lawsuit arguing that the state’s abortion ban “constricted the market for mifepristone statewide,” and has negatively impacted state residents’ access to the drug, as well as the company’s “ability to conduct business” in the state.

  • West Virginia’s abortion ban violates the U.S. Constitution’s Supremacy Clause and the Commerce Clause, the lawsuit alleges.
  • The state has restrictions on abortion drugs, specifically prohibiting the use of telemedicine and requiring a waiting period and counseling before they can be administered.

“We are prepared to defend West Virginia’s new abortion law to the fullest. While it may not sit well with manufacturers of abortion drugs, the U.S. Supreme Court has made it clear that regulating abortion is a state issue,” West Virginia Attorney General Patrick Morrisey said in a statement.

Here’s what Axios does not tell you. GenBioPro, who is suing the state of West Virginia, is probably funding the North Carolina lawsuit and no doubt have plans to fund even more of these “abortion rights protection” initiatives. As the manufacturer of the generic version of mifepristone, they know any limits on the drug’s use means less money in their coffers. They also don’t want a precedent to be set so that other states (especially the Purple/Blue ones) could establish limits that affect their bottom line. So, they are doing all they can to reinsert the federalization of abortion back into state laws via the FDA. This is more unelected bureaucrat overreach.

The doctor who is challenging the law in North Carolina is a known abortion activist. Dr. Amy Bryant is an associate professor and family planning assistant director of the fellowship in Family Planning at the University of North Carolina. In 2016, Dr. Bryant and other Planned Parenthood doctors successfully overturned the amendments to the 20-week abortion ban that the North Carolina legislature was attempting to enact. Obviously, the doctor is looking for lightning to strike twice so that her industry can continue to have the unfettered ability to facilitate child murder by whatever means they feel necessary.

These cases will set a precedent either way. If the court rules in favor of the FDA, then that means laws already in place in South Dakota, Missouri, and Ohio will be struck down. If the court rules in favor of the states, it will be more ground gained by the pro-life movement to continue true protection for women, their health, and the life of the unborn.

Expect the campaign of lies to be raised to a fever pitch over the next few weeks, especially since the judge overseeing one of the cases surrounding abortion rights happens to be Trump appointee Matthew Kacsmaryk.

Case in point, if you can spare the brain cells.
