REAL Pro-Life Bill That Forces Conservatives To Put Up Or Shut Up

‘Pro-life?’ Meet the man who challenges the Texas legislature to abolish the death penalty before enacting their anti-abortion bill. Photo of Texas State Representative Harold Dutton Jr. from the Texas Tribune.

If you are like me, you may have often wondered how those who call themselves “pro-life” can claim to care deeply about unborn life on the one hand, yet approve of the death penalty on the other. It’s nice to know that we are not alone, especially after what the Texas legislature has done in the past week. One member of the Texas House has taken this to his Republican colleagues in the form of a new bill. State Rep. Harold Dutton, Jr. has introduced HB 45, which is a very simple bill:

BE IT ENACTED BY THE LEGISLATURE OF THE STATE OF TEXAS: SECTION 1.  Chapter 170, Health and Safety Code, is amended by adding Section 170.003 to read as follows: Sec. 170.003.  LIMITATION ON ADDITIONAL ABORTION RESTRICTIONS. Notwithstanding any other law, a law enacted on or after June 1, 2013, that restricts access to abortion or the availability of abortion does not take effect until 60 days after publication in the Texas Register of a finding of fact made by the attorney general that the state has abolished the use of the death penalty as a punishment available on final conviction of a criminal offense. SECTION 2.  This Act takes effect immediately if it receives a vote of two-thirds of all the members elected to each house, as provided by Section 39, Article III, Texas Constitution. If this Act does not receive the vote necessary for immediate effect, this Act takes effect on the 91st day after the last day of the legislative session.


Now, that’s what I call walking the talk. Well done, Mr. Dutton. Here is a man who understands what “pro-life” really means as opposed to the forced birthers who claim that they are “pro-life” yet they support a death penalty that has been proven to be unfair. Not only is it applied unfairly, the costs associated with executions are staggering: pursuing a death penalty case costs up to 20 times more than a life sentence. The death penalty is racist and there is no evidence that it acts as a deterrent.  The most damning fact, especially as applied to the pro-birth crowd, is that nearly every religion in America considers executions as being against their tenets. Oh sure, there are some passages in the Old Testament that are often used to justify the death penalty but most religious and interfaith organizationsregard it as immoral. Don’t take my word for it, read for yourself. I know my faith holds that executions are not in keeping with our belief system.

Texas accounts for 40% of all executions carried out in the United States. The state executed its 500th prisoner last month. Governor Rick Perry doesn’t seem to be bothered by this benchmark – he considers it a badge of honor that it occurred under his watch. To him, the Texas capital punishment system works “just fine” despite executing the mentally disabled, juveniles and even possibly innocent people.  But Perry doesn’t worry his pretty little head about that sort of thing, you see. He sleeps just fine knowing that his state is number one in executions because in Texas they are “going to support protecting life.” Folks, as they say down South, the boy just ain’t right.

As far as I’m concerned, Mr. Perry, if you don’t support caring for the poor, the sick, the elderly, if you don’t support contraception, childcare and education, if you don’t support health care for all then you are NOT pro-life. Pro-life means cherishing all life, not just giving lip service to it by holding a cluster of cells as having more rights than the woman who carries it. If you can’t commit to including all life in your heart, then please STFU. Because you are not pro-life when you continue to murder human beings in your death chambers. Here’s hoping that enough Texas legislators realize what pro-life really means and that Representative Dutton’s bill passes.

 I disagree. 

 Defunding Medicaid coverage for abortions did decrease abortions and is not shown to cause an increase in illegal abortions.  So, this does make it plausible that if abortion is banned, less women will seek.  Less human beings will die.

Quoting Meadowchik:

Laws restricting abortion can decrease abortion. 

A global collection of figures from different countries does not necessarily count for causal evidence.  More scientifically sound studies are those examining specific cases and specific laws.  For instance, the countries with lower rates also may have other things in common with each other which are the real cause for lower abortion rates.

The laws referred to here are specifically examined and the causal link less tenuous: http://www.thepublicdiscourse.com/2008/10/123/

Quoting Aestas:

First of all, even if one disagrees with the death penalty, it is not equivalent to abortion.  It is a penalty for murderes found guily in a court of law, while the unborn are completely innocent.

Well, except for those pesky little cases that pop up now and again where an inmate on death row is exonerated due to new evidence. Oops.

the demands for pro-lifers to do things like support paid maternity leave and contraception in order to be "truly pro-life" turn out being a cynical and contemptuous game of chicken

Except that people who genuinely value life want to do the things proven to preserve it. Banning abortion is not one of those things. Have you forgotten since the last thread that abortion is more common in countries where it is illegal, not less?

 Hogwash.

Second of all, I haven't seen Pro-Choice individuals or organisations like Planned Parenthood agree to ban abortions as long as other "pro-life' legislation (like healthcare and welfare programs) are advanced.  I haven't seen any promises of this sort, so the demands for pro-lifers to do things like support paid maternity leave and contraception in order to be "truly pro-life" turn out being a cynical and contemptuous game of chicken. 

 

 

 

Driving abortion underground doesn't decrease it.

It will certainly decrease the reporting.

It will certainly incease maimed and dead women.

It will certainly be an additional burden to the poor.

And, if young girls without means get pregnant and can't abort, we can be sure there will be an increase in dumpster babies, and babies born to mothers who were too afraid to tell their parents they were pregnant and therefore didn't get prenatal care.

Quite frankly for some, I am not even sure they care about any life- It's just a fixation- perhaps it elicits a buzz or fills some sort of void. 

Why would you force life, yet refuse to address the fact that many of those lives will require others' help for food, shelter, clothing, education?...makes no sense unless one is truly an evil, heartless azzhole. Unless, those pro feti are going to give dollars to match and reinforce their opinions...I won't hold my breath. Many were so happy with the Hyde amendment thinking it would save the government money- I doubt they'll be opening up their pocketbooks-

Irrelevant logic, Roma.  They only care about the fetus, not the woman and not the already-born baby.

Your logic is faulty.  We don't know how many of those people got non-Medicaid abortions.  We will never know when people get illegal abortions unless something goes awry.

And....if abortion is banned, more women will die.  Women who need abortion for their life and health, women who are desperate and will do something unsafe and illegal, and of course there will be children born to children who also will die, mostly from embarrassment (inability to tell their families of their plight).

We cannot make embryos equivalent to already born women without some women being endangered, when there are competing interests.

And at times, there are competing interests.

Killing the innocent versus killing persons proven in a court of law to be guilty of murder.  Those are not equivalent actions.

Quoting illogicalkat:

Both end with the loss of life, so how is it false?

Not liking something doesn't make it not true.

Quoting Meadowchik:

 Comparing capital punishment to abortion is a false comparison.

Quoting illogicalkat:

I never said I was pro-life, nor did I say there was anything wrong with a person being anti-abortion.

I disagree with the statement that pro-life only applies to abortion, and I will continue to call anyone identifying as pro-life yet supporting capital punishment, a hypocrite.

And I will always support the right to legal and safe abortion, because I would rather a women be medically cared for than get a back-alley coat-hanger job that could kill her. Whether I would ever make that choice for myself is another matter entirely, and not up for debate here.

Quoting Meadowchik:

 Pro-life is about speaking for those who cannot speak for themselves, and defending their lives. Deathrow inmates have had the chance to speak for themselves, they have had the chance to defend themselves in a court of law.

BTW, are you implying that IF the death penalty ends, you would agree to a ban of abortions-on-demand, and all other abortions except when the mothers life is in medical jeapardy?

Quoting illogicalkat:

Pro-life means exactly that. Pro-LIFE. As in, don't kill other people, no matter how small or how big.

If you're anti-abortion but pro-capital punishment, then you aren't pro-life. You're just anti-abortion.

 

Quoting yourspecialkid:

 I didn't finish the article.  Being pro-life has absolutely nothing to do with the death penalty.  The death penalty is a societal punishment for a heinous crime.  Most abortions are the mother's way of dealing with an inconvenience.  They are not even in the same ballpark.

We should never support the killing of a person who is known to be innocent, whether in the womb or on death row.

I actually have not stated my personal views on capital punishment, but certainly, objectively, it is not equivalent to abortion. No hypocrisy there.

 

Quoting cjsbmom:

And sometimes they are still wrongly convicted. So because they had the chance to speak, you think it's OK to kill an innocent man or woman? This is the hypocrisy many of us are talking about.

Are you referring to the killing of people without their consent?  Because that's murder.

If you're referring to assisted suicide that is a whole different thing and is legal is several states.  Generally those who understand how to treat patients with humanity and dignity.  HIPPA is about a person and their doctor having the ability to discuss medical options with the reasonable expectation of privacy from the prying eyes of the public, politicians, and capitalists.

When politicians, who generally have no clue about medicine, and the suits in charge of insurance, who also generally have no clue about medicine, start dictating who can have what medical procedure then there is a really big problem.

And that's what all this abortion nonsense is really about.  People who don't understand medicine (politicians, capitalists, lay people, etc) sticking their noses in where they shouldn't.  It's equivalent is telling people they can't have life saving surgery for cancer because those cells are alive.  The main difference is that cancer is truly a parasite that directly takes from the host.  A fetus is third in line for any nutrients that are consumed by the female in which is resides.


Quoting Meadowchik:

Hmmm, euthanasia is outlawed and we still have HIPPA. Banning some procedures does not render privacy irrelevant.

Quoting D-Town:

I think that if abortion is made illega HIPPAlaws should be repealed. If someone is going to stick their nose in my medical care then I should have full, unrestricted access to their medical records as well.

I know that prior to Roe v. Wade people got abortions.  Wealthier people got them safely, poor people got them unsafely.

You are more interested in saving embryos and I am more interested in saving the already born.  Women WILL die if we ban abortions.

Too bad Texans have their heads shoved so far up women's vaginas that they'll never see how this bill makes sense.
