Several notorious pro-abortion organizations -- the leader of one even referred to abortion as a "sacrament" -- have renewed their attacks on Pro-Life legislator Parker Space. The Sussex County Assemblyman is a sponsor of the "Babies in the Womb Feel Pain" bill that is the most important piece of legislation on the Pro-Life agenda.
Space's legislation, A-3452, would recognize the scientific fact that unborn babies are pain-sensitive at 20 weeks. Every other country on earth recognizes this fact except North Korea, China, Vietnam, Singapore, Canada, and the Netherlands. Similar legislation has been passed in 16 states and 2017 has been designated as the year of the big push to bring our laws into line with the rest of the civilized world.
In support of A-3452, an ecumenical movement has formed called the 20/20 Project. Its members represent many religious denominations. It is actively supported by a number of organizations including the Respect Life Office of the Archdiocese of Metuchen, the Respect Life Office of the Archdiocese of Newark, Project LEARN, the New Jersey Family Policy Council, New Jersey Right to Life, the Center for Garden State Families, Corazon Puro, LifeNet, the League of American Families, among others.
A Pro-Life activist stated: "This is a clear attempt to change the focus of the debate by the some of the most radical, anti-life elements of the Leftist coalition. They would do anything to maintain the barbaric practices that are illegal in most of the civilized world."
One campaign professional asked rhetorically if "these Democrats know what they are doing?" She noted that even the leftwing magazine, Mother Jones, acknowledged that Legislative District 24 was "one of the most Pro-Life districts in the country." She added, "And these idiots trot out a bunch of abortion lovers to make a point?"
