Democrat goes off on late-term abortion ban: ‘This bill is an abomination!’ (Video)
WASHINGTON, D.C., June 19, 2013 (LifeSiteNews.com) – Although religious rhetoric is usually associated with the pro-life movement, one Democrat sounded like a hellfire and brimstone preacher while defending late-term abortion on the floor of the House of Representatives on Tuesday.
“This bill is an abomination!” said Rep. Gwen Moore, D-WI. “Plain and simple, at its foundation, at its heart, is utter disrespect for the dignity and health of women.”
Arizona Congressman Trent Franks introduced the “Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act” (H.R. 1797) to prevent atrocities like those committed by Kermit Gosnell and Douglas Karpen, who are accused (and in the case of Gosnell, found guilty) of performing illegal late-term abortions, as well as delivering living babies, and killing them after birth. As well, two women died during botched abortions in Gosnell's care.
“Boy, I tell you, the House GOP has truly pushed the limits this time by offering this unconstitutional bill,” Moore stated.
If adopted, the bill would ban most third-trimester abortions, a view supported by 80 percent of the American people. Rep. Moore said that “would callously and cavalierly limit access to abortion for women across the country.”
“Now we have a bill that is born of ignorance and disregard for medical science in every way, shape, and form – no concern for the biology, physiology, sociology of the woman,” she said.
To bolster her case that Republicans were motivated by ignorance, she cited the recent and now-infamous words of Miss Utah, “however inarticulate,” on the need to “create education better.”
“I think Miss Utah is on to something,” Moore said, claiming that “we once again see men taking leadership roles” to deny “women's right to a medically safe abortion.”
“Denying women the care they need is hazardous, cruel, and it's simply the wrong thing to do,” she concluded.

Moore, who regularly earns a 100 percent voting record from NARAL Pro-Choice America, said during a 2011 debate, “Planned Parenthood is healthy for women, it’s healthy for children, and it’s healthy for our society.”
The alternative to abortion, she warned, was that children would live in poverty and have to eat Ramen noodles.
