U.S. Sen. Mary Landrieu (D-Louisiana), who’s in a tough battle for re-election, says she opposes a recently passed late abortion ban in her home state (and a similar federal bill) because it bans abortions after 20 weeks of pregnancy.

Landrieu said she “personally” believes that life begins at conception, but that she opposes these measures because “20 weeks is not the norm for being able to live outside of a hospital.”
If the ability to survive outside of a hospital determines whether a human should be put to death, there are an awful lot of old and sick people who should be in the execution line.
We grabbed a video depicting a typical human fetus at the 20-week mark. After watching it, we believe even Sen. Landrieu (who is hopelessly caught between the conservative majority in her state and the leftist pro-abortion crowd in her party) would agree that 5-month fetuses are very human, very much alive, and certainly worth saving.
