  3. Woooo Hooo this is great news! And thank you Senator Manchin! Pro Life!!

  4. If a baby in the womb is considered a clump of cells and a woman's choice. Then a man leaving a woman while pregnant should bear no legal responsibility to help raise the child.

  5. Yea what dems showed is that the dems lied, saying that if you elect democrats you’ll get change, then a democrat voted against his party’s bill. They are useless

  6. Life and abortion.

    The dilemma of when can a new being be considered with full right to the unborn is very broad, and with various explanations; In order not to debate each one of them, I will go directly to one, which I will reason with a little. I understand that he is a person from the moment of his conception.

    We know that the unborn, since we can be aware of its presence, has already begun to form, and when its size allows us to see it, it already moves, therefore, it has life, although we cannot see its entire development process from its beginning, because if not, there would be no movement or growth. Since it is conceived, its cellular formation begins to compose its body, I consider that if we interrupt this development, we interrupt its growth, we interrupt the process of its formation, both physical first, and intellectual later, because it will not reach this stage of its evolution to which it has a right as a being already created, but still developing and growing.

    From its conception, it is already developing, as is a newborn that has to grow and finish forming its kidneys, its intestinal flora, its lumbar and cervical; as an adolescent is about to finish his physical development, that of his anatomy, and he still continues with his intellectual development knowing everything that surrounds him and learns from his environment, from his parents, from people and from schools, until reach maturity and be fit to use all their faculties and capacities to lead an individual life on their own, alone or with a partner.

    From the moment its development is interrupted, it is simply eliminated from the course of life, because it is already in it from the first stage of its formation phase, call it an embryo or whatever you want to call it; So much value and meaning does this elimination have if it is done at the moment after knowing her gestation, like the year of her birth, like ten years of her childhood, like 20 years of her youth, like 40 of her maturity or at 80 of his old age. It is the elimination of a life whose course has already begun, it is the death of a human being in formation.

    Because he is already a human being since he is being formed, or educating or studying or working or procreating or aging.

    Can one person decide over another whether he should continue to live or not? Because this whole process is to live although in different stages of the existence of each human being. Talking about abortion, is it talking about letting or not letting a human being continue to develop? This is the question I ask myself.

    A seed is a potential plant: if it were born it would give us fruit; if it were not born, we would have neither plant nor fruit. Similarly, a conception is already a planted and germinated seed; if we unearth it in this state, it is no longer useful for anything, that seed will not grow, nor will it become a plant, nor will it bear flowers or fruit. So it is also with all being aborted.

    For this reason, once it has been sown, it must be allowed to grow, because if we do not let it grow, it is as if we uprooted a plant, with more or less time, but uprooted, and its life and all its possibilities that could be very similar to that of any of our lives.

  7. Poor Dems. Surely Americans will rally behind them over infanticide, right?

  8. Those Democratic Senators voted to allow abortions in all 3 trimesters, that is extreme and they are all on the record.

  9. The Senate Majority voted down the abortion bill. 51 to 49.

  10. When a woman has a child inside her it's no longer just her body!

  11. This bill, which puts the federal government over the states, cannot pass without 60 votes. Even without Sen Manchin, the Democrats do not have the votes. This bill would give no notification of parents for abortions of their minor children, and it would allow abortions up to the moment of birth.

  12. Why are we so intent on endorsing and promoting murder?

  13. It's a barbaric mentality that justifys the unjustifiable nature of this violently heinous procedure.

  14. "her own body her own body her own body."
    If it was your body, you would be the one who dies during the abortion lol

  15. The only reasons abortion is a political issue: 1. Control of women
    2. VOTES. If men could get pregnant, there would be abortion clinics
    on every street corner.

  16. Given enough votes in congress, could Gorsuch, Kavanaugh, and Barrett be impeached for lying while under oath during there senate confirmation hearing? Could this give enough motivation for Dem voters to go and vote in 2022 and 2024?

  17. My body my choice. I will never get the vax. It’s my body. It’s my choice. Never wearing a mask. My body my choice

  18. About 39 years ago I was close to 13 weeks pregnant and had an abortion. Near the end of the abortion the nurse said 'Oh My God' and stared for about a minute then left the room. The doctor continued staring for about a minute or two longer. I saw they were in shock and knew they watched my baby die. My legs were draped so I could not see. Please read below of the extremely fast speed of fetal development.

    Heart pumping blood day 21, brain waves day 40. see "Baby Center- Fetal Development Week By Week" which states on WEEK 11 the baby can FEEL if the belly is gently poked on mom, is KICKING and STRETCHING, almost fully developed. Look at the pictures – the fetus looks like a developed baby. I was told at the appointment the fetus was just tissue – the same lie told today despite the advanced technology showing the truth.

    Many women do not discover they are pregnant until 6 weeks have already passed. – heartbeat and brain waves are present.

  19. America we can not say "In God we trust" but yet completely ignore his laws. If you have an abortion or if you perform an abortion you are guilty of murder in God's sight. This attempt to spit in God's face is one of the reasons his judgement is going to be poured out on America, and it will be brutal. We gotta repent America, each and every single one of us.

  20. Abortion is disgusting and is nothing but political. Nothing got to do with women and their bodies.

  21. Government is no longer for the people.

  22. God is giving America a chance to repent of her sins..

  23. Por el )*( no hay aborto

  24. Religious or not, read Ephesians 4:18, 19

  25. Great news! I'm glad people are finally putting an end to the infant*cide.

  26. Just have a national vote,and if you vote to stop,a woman's Right. REPUBLICAN'S ,just took bad fight,with the wrong women.

  27. "congratulations" The US moving towards Middle East countries against one of the most basic rights and Human Rights!!
    I can imagine some day these honorable senators sitting in their protected houses and saying, "suicide bommers" are OK and women need to cover their faces…..

  28. "The majority of the American people"? You couldn't even win in congress how can you claim you are the majority? 😁🤣

  29. GOP now is like Taliban. If GOP in power again, America will become Afghanistan.

  30. Republicans have to insist on controlling humans in inhumane ways

  31. America is going down the tubes at a rate of a decaying tooth

  32. For those of you who don’t understand the bill or what is going on. If kamila Harris is Sad 😔 then it’s a very good thing!!!!!!

  33. Hooray thank you God

  34. I think everyone who is against abortion should adopt a baby then. Even tho I vote red every election, I wonder how many of these Republicans have had abortions. At least it's easy to abort a baby yourself, just do it safely ladies.

  35. How about ban abortion and take care of the baby and provide health care and college for the baby? Just a thought.
