As the media go ape over every state law that restricts abortion, they are noticeably quiet about new laws in blue states that loosen abortion restrictions to the point of endangering women’s health. Like this new law, just signed by the Governor of Maine.
This one allows abortions to be performed by people who aren’t even doctors, such as nurse practitioners, physician assistants and certified nurse-midwives. If this is the direction that the pro-abortion lobby wants to go, then could we at least drop the charade that they defend abortion rights in the name of “protecting women’s health”?
Allowing infanticide on a post-birth baby is not “protecting the mother’s health,” and letting people who aren’t even doctors perform potentially dangerous surgical procedures on women is not “protecting women’s health.” Such practices are either irrelevant or downright detrimental to the pregnant woman’s health. They serve one purpose only: promoting the widespread normalization of the killing of children, either in or out of the womb, in order to exalt the value of convenience over human life.
Please stop insulting our intelligence by claiming you’re protecting “women’s health” when you’re legalizing letting people who aren't even doctors perform surgery on women.
