The Family Institute of Connecticut Action has learned from a reputable source that Connecticut’s senior senator, Richard Blumenthal, will join others to introduce a bill in Congress to federally override the intent of democratically elected officials in far off states like Wisconsin and Texas. To take away the right of a citizenry to govern themselves, especially over something as basic as “reproductive rights” – the states must be passing real doozies of abortion laws.

Let’s take a look . . .

Texas has passed a law preventing abortions after 20 weeks – the point at which neurobiologists, scientists and surgeons
agree an unborn baby can feel and react to pain (for the comfort of our pro-abortion readers. . . you may substitute with the word “fetus”). Whoa, ho, ho . . slow down there Texans! You may ban the torture of animals being de-limbed alive, but that procedure on humans is, as Blumenthal’s pal Nancy Pelosi would say . . . “sacred”.

In Colorado, Heather Surovik is leading a ballot-measure to have her 38 week son who was killed by a drunk driver, recognized as a person in that state:

“Brady was eight pounds, two ounces – he was a person! And Planned Parenthood and the media are trying to take the focus off of Brady, to ignore him to push their own agendas. Let me be clear: this amendment is about Brady, and his life, and justice for women who have suffered the tragedy that I have suffered. “

Crazy. Town.

Of course, reasonable people know that laws like these are common sense measures that moderate extreme and permissive abortion regimes.

No doubt, different regions of the country handle the sensitive issue of abortion differently.  For example, in Connecticut, a teen can have an abortion but can’t enter a tanning both without her parents knowing.  Ahem, gulp.

But to the voters of Texas, Colorado, New Mexico and numerous other states, whom our dear Senator must think very small and ignorant, his response is “can’t have that” and proposes to expunge their state laws. Extreme, indeed.

No doubt Senator Blumenthal is simply obeying his masters at NARAL and Planned Parenthood, I mean . .  . you do not earn a 100% rating from such organizations unless you really “work it”.   But we wonder what other important federal and state matters go untended as Senator Blumenthal continues his “me too” politicking in Washington DC.

Others may wish the Senator to direct his attention to immigration, insurance, defense, veteran affairs, Medicare and other important issues for Connecticut; but our Senator has a sweet tooth for abortion, so we humbly ask his support for the enforcement and enhancement of laws that prohibit the transportation of minors across state borders to procure abortions.  You see . . . Connecticut (his home state) has a problem.  Our lack of parental consent laws have made us an obvious haven for out-of-state minors seeking abortions with their over-age escorts.  A terrifying prospect for many New England parents and their children.  But we won’t be sitting by the phone.  Instead we’ll pray for conversions of heart, continue to work the democratic process, and wonder if senators in other far off states will look at CT laws and in turn, question their reasonableness.

Do you want to do more?  Contact Senators Blumenthal and Murphy and ask them to support a vote on the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act introduced by Senator Lindsey Graham and co-signed by at least 36 other senators.  A similar version has already passed in the House.

    Senator Blumenthal was elected by the people of CT to improve the economy and bring jobs back to our state. I doubt that providing unfettered access to abortion throughout all nine months of gestation was foremost in the voters minds. You are right, he is paying back the money NARAL invested in him.

    I’m with Leslie — Senators, open your ears please. There’s nothing remotely “pro-choice” about what you are doing.

    Thank you for talking sense in the discussion of legislation and human life. When appropriately passed legislation is hijacked and amended by those out of the legislative area, something has gone very much awry. The discussion of the availability of abortion to minors, unbeknownst to their parents, especially when compared with the inability to give access to advil and now apparently tanning (?!) to minors, though I support those policies, can never be exhausted until parental notification exists in all 50 states. What parent would not be heartbroken to discover a daughter died or was severely injured in a medical procedure (always a possibility) about which they had no knowledge, that was sought under personal distress or despiration, or peer pressure? What teen does not need some healthy adult support when grappling with difficult adult issues for the first time? And what parent does not belong in what pro-aborts rightly remind us is a sacred and private issue for their daughters? People understand that abortion brings up some of the most important and sacred issues – and that is why we are seeing more legislation to regulate the industry and limit access to abortion under varying circumstances. Legislators may not be very happy about this – and neither are the money-makers – the big-whigs at PP and NARAL, etc. But they may be coming to realize that their extreme positions are grossly out of step with the rest of the country. What we are seeing now is their despiration.

    Yeah, let’s see if we can get Blumy out of office! Probably not, but still worth the effort.

    In regards to this agenda (and speaking from the pov of someone that once truly believed abortion was a right that was fought for and won by our ancestors in order that we may be free) nothing that they do on a state or national level is going to close this Pandora’s box aside from a miracle, and for this I pray. It may hasten the scourges that America (& the rest of the world) is destine to endure but the bell has been rung and rung and rung so much that its impossible in my mind to unring it. Grassroots campaigns are really where the greatest change will occur and meeting mothers where there at is really how lives will be won. As far as politics, well I believe we’ve lost that battle.

    I believe we lost the political war a long time ago. Grassroots and meeting moms on the level of helping them where they are at is really the only hope we have for the next generation. This is a Pandora’s box that was opened a long time ago and it’s my opinion politically speaking hope for the babies of this world went out with the bath water with roe v wade.

    Thank you, Leslie, for continuing to expose the real story of what is happening with our government reps…

    Bravo to those states and government reps who are making heroic choices in today’s world to keep babies alive; and Senator, don’t you think there’s enough going on here in CT to concern yourself with than mucking around with other states’ legally-voted-into-office reps?

    Great essay, Leslie!
