Christian medical doctors condemn late-term abortion legislation, call it ‘morally bankrupt’

The Christian Medical Association, the nation's largest faith-based association of doctors, has condemned New York's new law allowing abortions up until delivery, and Virginia's similar legislation, as "medically unnecessary" and "morally bankrupt."
CMA Executive Vice President Dr. Mike Chupp said in a statement, "This is where the deceptive devaluing of human life leads.”
Chupp believes that abortion advocates’ argument that “a developing baby is just a ‘blob of tissue’” is a gross mischaracterization of the truth.
He noted that, they are “Ignoring the scientific evidence of ultrasound images that show us babies with beating hearts, moving in the womb.”
Even though abortion advocates claim the new law is about giving women the right to control their own bodies, Chupp makes the point that, a woman that chooses this heartless option is “ignoring the inalienable right to life of the second little body in her care.”
CMA Senior Vice President, Dr. Gene Rudd, an Obstetrician-Gynecologist, asks, "Has our society become so heartless that we will condone the killing of babies capable of living apart from their mothers?"
In 2003, millionaire abortionist, Kermit Gosnell, was convicted and sent to prison for the very thing that is now legal — late-term abortions.
He was found guilty of first-degree murder in the deaths of three infants born alive, though employees testified to more than 100 baby-killings. Gosnell was sentenced to three life terms in prison.
But now, what was once viewed as a heinous crime is celebrated. How far we have fallen morally in America.
With exuberant cheers and celebration, last month, the Reproductive Health Act was signed into law by Gov. Andrew Cuomo, allowing late-term abortions—up until a baby’s due date if a woman’s health is at risk. The Democrat-led Senate and Assembly passed the bill on the 46th anniversary of the Roe decision. The previous law only permitted abortions after 24 weeks of pregnancy if a woman’s life was at risk.
CMA VP for Government Relations, Jonathan Imbody, chimes in also, blaming the influence of Planned Parenthood — “a billion-dollar business that rakes in over half a billion tax dollars while performing nearly a third of a million abortions every year.”
Imbody further accuses Planned Parenthood of “radicalizing legislatures across the country,” by “using their immense profits from immoral actions to elect and control politicians nationwide.”
According to Imbody, “Those politicians are so beholden to and entrenched in the abortion lobby that they will support and even celebrate legislation that a huge majority of Americans find gut-wrenchingly abhorrent.”
