Columbine Dad and newly elected President of Colorado Right to Life, is challenging the wisdom of National Right to Life and Senator Sam Brownback's "Unborn Child Pain Awareness Act." Any law that ends with "and then you can kill the baby, is an inherently evil law."
While it is certainly laudable to inform women that dismemberment of pre-born children is barbaric and of course extremely painful, any legislation that violates God's law, "Thou shall not murder," should never be proposed nor passed by a civilized society. This law requires mothers be informed that their baby will feel extreme pain during the abortion and then gives her the option to offer pain medication to her baby if she chooses . . . "and then you can kill the baby."
According to Rohrbough, "Would any rational human being have felt better about what the Nazis did to the Jews, if they had offered them pain medication? Why, then, does National Right to Life think it appropriate to suggest that women sedate innocent, pre-born infants before they are murdered by abortionists?" This law clearly violates, "Thou shall not murder," and as such Colorado Right to Life opposes this act, which won't save a single baby, says Rohrbough.
"The American people deserve the opportunity to hear an honest debate with the nation's largest pro-life organization about why they propose legislation that merely promotes a kinder, gentler way of killing," said the father of Danny Rohrbough, who was murdered at Columbine.
