Last week the House of Representatives decided to drop plans to vote on H.R. 36 named the “Pain Capable Unborn Child Protection Act” that would make most abortions illegal after 20 weeks. My Congressman, Jackie Walorski (R-IN2) played a key role in this decision. This quote from the Washington Post:

But Republican leaders dropped those plans after failing to win over a bloc of lawmakers, led by Reps. Rene Ellmers (R-N.C.) and Jackie Walorski (R-Ind.), who had raised concerns.


I expressed my extreme displeasure with this decision and you can see the response I recieved below. But first I would like to address her expressed concern that “I met with House Leadership to urge them to clarify the language regarding the rape reporting requirement because this provision could possibly be misunderstood in legal situations.” My response to her is I don’t care, for those that might be challenged by math 20 weeks is 5 months, if after that time a pregnant lady might change her mind, too bad, it’s not about you it’s about the baby that you’re carrying. Other than a woman’s serious and verified health threat I feel that all abortions should now be made illegal.

Feel free to disagree.

  3. I was raped by my biological father at Fourteen years of age. I gave birth to my son at age Fifthteen. Not only were my wishes to parent this child crushed but then later, I waited six months to sign over guardianship of that child to my biological mother because the courts legally had to notify my rapist father, in doing so, giving him rights to say over my child whether I could sign or not. Are you kidding me.?! Laws do not currently protect women, or children, unborn and born. Abortion was never an option. My son is an innocent and a blessing. His DNA put my father away, which would have never happened otherwise since no one believed me before the DNA results came back. This is a cruel a disgusting joke. My son has just as much right to live as any. Oh and if you look up the statistics of offenders who actually serve any time at all for thier crimes on the National Rape and Incest Network, 98% walk away Scott free. This letter for this governor just goes to show how ignorant and hypocritical ” political correctness ” has made our current judicial system. Really want to help women, end abortion on demand, respects teens rights to raise their kids and increase the access to open adoption. Also, punish sex crimes harshly and do not under any circumstances give the offender rights to the child conceived from thier crime. Thanks Mark for righting this. I hope you can use some of what I have told you to effectively persuade these scaredy, back tracking, wishy washy, half ass, pretending to care politicians to sign the pain capable bill now! Thanks, have a great day.
