Ted Cruz: Democrats are now so radicalized on abortion they can’t accept any limits on its brutality

Earlier this week, Senate Democrats cast a tragic vote. Before them was a piece of reasonable legislation, the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act. It sought to do one thing: to prevent late-term abortions that result in pain and suffering for the unborn child.
Medical research and science has shown that children in the womb develop remarkably fast. By the time the five-month mark passes, the unborn child’s fingers, toes, eyelids, eyebrows, nails, and even eyelashes have all formed. The child can suck its thumb and yawn. It has a heartbeat. And it can very much feel pain.
What the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act proposed was to update the law to reflect this scientific reality. The bill’s protections, I believe, reflect the moral instincts of any just and humane society.
Under its provisions, a doctor would have been barred from conducting late-term elective abortions on babies that were at 20-week gestation or older. The bill made an exception for when the mother’s life was at serious risk, but for the most part it eliminated as a category a procedure that not only ended an innocent life but ended it in such a way as to constitute torture.
I had hoped that my Democratic colleagues could see the merits of such legislation. I had hoped that they could recognize the barbarity of ripping apart a suffering child and put in place at least some limit of what we as a nation are willing to carry out in the aftermath of Roe v. Wade.
