ACLU Fights to Keep The “Death Penalty” for Babies

Yesterday, Jeanne Hruska, Political Director for the ACLU of New Hampshire, testified in opposition to New Hampshire Bill HB625, which would restrict abortions in the third trimester, when babies are viable and can live outside the womb.

Why would ACLU-NH defend the right to an abortion in the third trimester when their mission is to defend our civil rights?

It is because they believe the right to an abortion through all nine months of pregnancy for any reason, or no reason at all is a constitutional right that must be vigorously defended.

It doesn’t matter to them that viable babies have natural rights, including the right to life. Those babies and their rights mean nothing to the ACLU-NH.

The ACLU-NH worked hard that year to repeal the death penalty for convicted criminals in New Hampshire and won.

But they continue to work hard to keep the death penalty in place for babies in New Hampshire – for the crime of being a few weeks shy of their due date.
