The Pennsylvania Senate passed the Down Syndrome Protection Act on Wednesday, which would prevent parents from murdering children in the womb just because prenatal tests reveal Down Syndrome. The Democrat governor of the state, Tom Wolf, vetoed the bill so that murder of people with Down Syndrome would continue to be expedited.
Sen. Kristin Phillips-Hill of York, Pennsylvania, said it was appropriate to consider the bill on National Child Day, saying, “We believe you have the right to be born and the right to enjoy a full and productive life.”
Sen. Scott Martin of Lancaster, said, “Disability rights begin in the womb.”
The Democratic Party has a homicidal streak, however, and Governor Wolf wanted babies with Down Syndrome to be ruthlessly slaughtered in the womb.
Governor Wolf said, “[The bill is a] restriction on women and medical professionals [that] interferes with women’s health care and the crucial decision-making between patients and their physicians.”
In explaining his veto, Wolf continued, “[There is] no evidence that this bill is needed in Pennsylvania” and said he had, “significant concerns that enforcement of this legislation would upend the doctor-patient relationship and impede on patient confidentiality.”
Most homicides are confidential, a fact that Wolfe seems to have overlooked. The confidential nature of homicides doesn’t mean that the state doesn’t have a responsibility to protect the vulnerable and less fortunate.
Michael Geer of the Pennsylvania Family Institute said, “Governor Tom Wolf believes it’s just fine to kill babies in the womb solely because of a prenatal diagnosis of a disability. That is eugenics. That’s wrong,”
There might never have been a governor with a more suiting name than Tom Wolf.
