The United States has just entered very dark days.
Senate Democrats last night affirmed their position on allowing new born babies who survive abortion attempts be left to die.
Only three Democrats voted to protect the lives of babies born alive. All other Democrats voted to let them die.
The Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act, S. 311, failed, 53-44.
Father Frank Pavone, national director of Priests for Life rightly said, “The extremism of the Democrats can no longer be ignored or debated.”
“This bill merely recognizes that a newborn baby is a newborn baby, no matter what the circumstances were of her birth. For Democrats, a newborn slated for extermination before birth is fair game even after birth. This is infanticide,” said Father Pavone.
Shockingly, there is no existing federal law that requires medical care for infants born alive after an abortion attempt. This legislation would have ensured that any infant born alive after an abortion would be provided with the same medical care as any other newborn.
The bill stated that, “any health care practitioner present at the time of birth exercise the same degree of professional skill, care, and diligence to preserve the life and health of a child as a reasonably diligent and conscientious health care practitioner would render to any other child born alive at the same gestational age.”
The bill would have exempted the mother from any liability or prosecution.
Senator Mitch McConnell stated, “This isn’t about new restrictions on abortion. It isn’t about changing options available to women. It’s about recognizing a newborn baby is a newborn baby. Period.”
The Democrats voted against the bill on the same day a Marist Poll showed the number of pro-life Democrats jumped from 20 percent in January to 34 percent in February.
ALL 2020 Democratic hopefuls voted against protecting the newborns. Bernie Sanders, Kamala Harris, Cory Booker, Kirsten Gillibrand, Amy Kloboucher, and Elizabeth Warren were ALL NO.
President Trump said, The Democrat position on abortion is now so extreme that they don’t mind executing babies AFTER birth.”
We will regret this action.
Closing question for Democrats: What is the age that a person’s life should be protected? If it’s not an alive newborn, then what age do protections kick in?
