Federal Court Strikes Down Abortion Ban after 20 Weeks
Faith and Freedom with Liberty Counsel’s Mat Staver and BarbWire’s Matt Barber… An 11-minute weekday radio program discussing hot topics in the area of religious liberty, the sanctity of human life and the family.
A federal court has struck down the Idaho law that bans abortion after 20 weeks, and Congress is considering a ban of abortion after 20 weeks as well.
Mat Staver: Matt, this law in Idaho would have banned abortions after 20 weeks, and now a federal court of appeals has ruled that it is “unconstitutional.” I put that in quotes because it”s so absurd that such a law would be unconstitutional. Obviously not, there’s nothing in the Constitution that grants the right for states or for the federal government to engage in human genocide. It’s absolutely absurd to even suggest so.
But this ruling of this federal court of appeals is another one of these absurd rulings of the judiciary with regards to something that is very straight forward, and that is life. And in this particular case, this court of appeals said that it sets an arbitrary time limit on when women can obtain abortions. Arbitrary? 20 weeks? Give me a break!
Matt Barber: There’s nothing arbitrary about the scientific fact that pain even to a heightened level because of their nerve endings being so fresh and sensitive…at 20 weeks these babies feel excruciating pain when they are literally ripped limb from limb alive, Mat. They’re tortured alive.
And the legislature in the state of Idaho and the Idaho governor, Butch Otter, noted how horrific and Nazi-esque this kind of live torturing of these babies, our most innocent human citizens, is. This is absolutely appalling that any civilized society would allow such barbarism to occur.
So they decided to put a stop to it. and now we have, again, a rogue federal court here saying ‘no…there’s a constitutional right to torture your babies to death, even though they can feel pain.’
