It was not like a surprise when the Vermont House of Representatives overwhelmingly voted 106-36 Thursday in favor in what Mary Hahn Beerworth, executive director of Vermont Right to Life, aptly described as “unlimited, unrestricted and unregulated abortion-on-demand throughout pregnancy.”After all, the state House, like the state Senate, is firmly under the control of militantly pro-abortion Democrats whose savagery has only picked up speed. And they have veto-proof majorities in both houses, although there is no indication the governor would veto H.57.

Beerworth told NRL News Today there was no amendment, no matter how commonsense to H.57 that stood a chance against the Democrat machine. All these went down to defeat: “to protect minor girls, to limit abortions on unborn babies in the later stages of development, to provide informed consent (including alternatives to abortion), to providing regulation and inspection of abortion clinics, and other amendments.”

But if ever there was a gauge just far how Democrats are willing to go, they shot down a proposed amendment to codify in Vermont state law a ban on the partial-birth abortion procedure. The federal ban on partial-birth abortion was upheld by the Supreme Court in 2007 in Gonzales v. Carhart.

In case you forgot this sickening “technique,” the abortionist pulls a living baby feet-first out of the womb and into the birth canal, except for the head, which the abortionist purposely keeps lodged just inside the cervix. The abortionist punctures the base of the baby’s skull with a surgical instrument, inserts a tube into the wound, and sucks the baby’s brains out.

“Pro-abortion legislators walked in lock step with Planned Parenthood and the ACLU as they read on the House floor the talking points that were rather obviously provided to them by both pro-abortion organizations, “Beerworth said. “The legislators who fought against H. 57 included both pro-life and pro-choice members of the Vermont House of Representatives. Rep. Bob Bancroft, of Westford, identifies himself as pro-choice. But the fact that H 57 lacked any concern for young girls and women, or any concern for a viable unborn baby, compelled him to offer over eight amendments to the abortion bill.”

Of course, “Abortion already is legal in Vermont throughout all nine months of pregnancy with no regulations or restrictions on its practice,” Beerworth explained. “ Not a single one.”

The significant change “in passing this legislation will not be in what is legal in Vermont,” Beerworth added. “The change is that the Vermont Legislature will move from passive acceptance of unrestricted abortion to intentional enactment” [].
