In the coming days, the U.S. Senate will hold votes on two pieces of pro-life legislation. One would ban abortions after 20 weeks of pregnancy. The other would require doctors or abortion practitioners to provide medical care to any baby surviving an attempted abortion.
Both bill will likely fail to attract 60 votes, which means they cannot proceed to a final vote. Even if they did, the legislation would never see the light of day in the House of Representatives.
What does it say about our culture and our politics that these bills cannot pass? Or that the media barely pay attention to a South Bend, Indiana, abortion provider who kept more than 2,000 fetal remains at his home?
We discuss these questions and much more with former Nebraska Attorney General Don Stenberg, who led the fight for a partial birth abortion ban all the way to the U.S. Supreme Court.
Stenberg also tells Greg Corombos about the critical case about to come before the Supreme Court, what he thinks of pro-life legislation like the heartbeat bills, and how he interprets presidential hopeful Pete Buttigieg reacting to the fetal remains story simply by saying he hopes the news won’t be politicized.
Finally, they discuss Stenberg’s new book, “Eavesdropping on Lucifer.”
