Abortion hit hard

This week has been a great week for human life. Abortion has been hit hard in the United States of America. Just a few hours ago, the House passed a bill that will ban late-term abortions 228-196.  During the debate, fetal pain was discussed.  Pain has always been used to prove sentience or person hood in human beings and even non-human animals.  This is discussed heavily in philosophy.

Prior to the House vote, Governor Cuomo of New York tried to pass a bill geared towards "woman's equality" but tainted with abortion rhetoric.  The bill was thrown out.  This is being interpreted as a big loss for Cuomo who has been getting his way since he entered office.  The Catholic Church and others have protested the bill because it would have lifted almost all restrictions on abortion and would increase abortion in a state where over 40% of children are killed in abortion.

While the bill the House passed will most likely not pass the Senate, and if it did, Obama has promised to vetoed it; it still sends a strong message.  Human life is sacred and needs to be protected.  The pro-life movement will not back down and will continue to fight abortion until it is aborted from society for good.
