On Monday, Senator Ben Sasse (R-NE) introduced the “Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act (S. 130), designed to protect babies who survive abortions by providing reasonable medical care and transport for the child to a hospital! The Born-Alive Act states that Congress acknowledges an “infant” born alive during a failed abortion…

“is a legal person for all purposes under the laws of the United States, and entitled to all the protections of such laws. Any infant born alive after an abortion or within a hospital, clinic, or other facility has the same claim to the protection of the law that would arise for any newborn, or for any person who comes to a hospital, clinic, or other facility for screening and treatment or otherwise becomes a patient within its care.”

Under the legislation, health care providers would be required to provide medical treatment to the newborn, and those who fail to provide medical care to an infant born alive after abortion can be fined or imprisoned for up to five years, or both. Therefore, under the bill, it states that the intentional killing of an infant born alive after abortion…

“shall be punished as … intentionally killing or attempting to kill a human being.”

It was co-sponsored by Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX). Currently, there have been numerous incidents where those babies were murdered, also called infanticide, after being born, due to their surviving, late-term, and full-term abortions.

As recently as last week, Democrat legislation to allow full term abortions of babies that are ready to be delivered has made headlines, as Democrats in New York, California, Virginia and a number of other Progressive States has come under scrutiny. Especially as the Democrats are shifting from pushing for the abortion of newly fertilized embryos to now fully developed and many times delivered human babies! In fact, Sasse went on the Senate floor to ask his colleagues to pass the bill by unanimous consent. However, a unanimous decision turned out to be difficult to reach, as Democrats voted to block the legislation!

Sadly, under the leadership of Senator Patty Murray (D-WA), Democrats officially blocked the bill. Senator Sasse, who was left in shock and bewilderment, as he stated…

“I don’t care what party you’re from! If you can’t say that it’s wrong to leave babies to die after birth, get the hell out of public office!”

Senator Ben Sasse (R-NE)

Sasse referred back to the Virginia bill known as the Repeal Act, introduced by Democrat Delegate Kathy Tran and supported by Democrat Gov. Ralph Northam, and said

This place fancies itself the world’s greatest deliberative body, but we would be deceiving ourselves if we ignored the biggest debate that’s been happening in America over the last 36 hours. A public elected official — the Governor of one of the 50 states — has been defending a practice that is morally repugnant. The Governor of Virginia has been defending a practice that is repugnant to civilized people across the entire world.

Susan B Anthony List’s (SBA List) President Marjorie Dannenfelser said…

“Senate Democrats had the chance today to prove they are not the party of infanticide, and instead they doubled down on extremism. The Democratic Party’s agenda of abortion on demand through birth and even beyond is radically out of step with the standards of decency the overwhelming majority of Americans expect from their leaders. We urge the Senate to bring the bill to the floor for a recorded vote so Americans can know where each senator stands, and we urge its passage. It’s time to get this bill swiftly to the President’s desk for his signature.”

Democrats failed to give reasons for their refusal to support the “Born-Alive Act”, or how they could support the needless slaughter and murder of infant babies who are born alive after a botched late-term!

A former nurse who witnessed late-term abortion babies who survived the procedure described the event as appalling! She said that the infants are born-alive, and then left to die! She added that…

“It is appalling to watch Democrat senators argue against this compassionate bill. Pleading ignorance is not an option especially in the wake of efforts in New York and Virginia to legalize infanticide. Everyone should be able to agree on equal protection under the law for these children.”

The following video shows and describes aborted babies, born alive, then killed for organ procurement…

Sadly, how a society can devolve into such utter hate and evil, as to endorse the needless slaughter of innocent children who miraculously survive an abortion, are able to breathe and have a heartbeat, says something pretty unconscionable about our society! Therefore, what does it say about the Democrat Party of today?

Just prior to the controversy over the Virginia bill – which would allow abortion even moments before birth – New York Democrat Gov. Andrew Cuomo signed a bill into law that denies “personhood” to unborn babies. Under the law, violence against an unborn child during a homicide is no longer criminally punishable.

Now, Democrats in Rhode Island and Vermont have also proposed bills that would strip most restrictions on abortion and declare the procedure a “fundamental right.”

“These late-term abortion bills do more than reveal Democratic radicalism. They draw back the veil of euphemism to expose abortion for what it is: At every stage of pregnancy, it is the taking of a human life.” @xan_desanctis in her first at The Atlantic:https://www.theatlantic.com/ideas/archive/2019/02/new-york-and-virginia-push-expand-abortion-rights/581959/

Democrats Overplay Their Hand on Abortion

In New York and Virginia, state governments are working to loosen restrictions on late-term abortion—and giving the anti-abortion movement an opportunity.

Tom McClusky, president of March for Life Action, said that in Sasse’s appeal for unanimous consent for the Born-Alive Act, Murray, representing Senate Democrats, “chose to stand up in favor of infanticide and the abortion lobby.”

“This pro-death mentality is the same one that has recently moved some lawmakers to propose extremely permissive late term abortion bills in states like New York and Virginia,” he said.

A recent Marist poll found 75 percent of Americans want substantial restrictions on abortion, including 60 percent of Democrats and 61 percent of those who identify as “pro-choice.”

“We call on Senate Majority Leader McConnell to bring the Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act to a floor vote so that constituents know exactly where their elected officials stand on protecting the fundamental right to life,” McClusky added

Democrats have already passed laws in California and New York that allows for last-minute abortions in the babies ninth month of pregnancy, and up to the moment of birth!

Sadly, Governor Andrew Cuomo (D-NY) even celebrated the late-term abortion law, which constitutes infanticide by lighting up government buildings, including the World Trade Center in pink, setting Christians back, as they couldn’t believe anyone would celebrate infanticide! Cuomo responded by stating…

“The Catholic Church doesn’t believe in a woman’s right to choose. Yes, I understand their religious view. But I’m not here to legislate religion.”

Similar laws that expand abortion access and give protections to fully developed babies have already been stripped away in New Mexico, Massachusetts, Rhode Island, and Washington State! Even the legislation in Virginia on Wednesday nearly passed, which would have allowed women to abort fully developed babies that could live outside of the womb, within seconds of their being born into the world and taking their first breath!

Fortunately, Republicans were able to block its passage…BUT BARELY! In fact, it failed along a straight party-line vote with every Democrat voting for the bill, and every Republican voting against the bill! Then, the Democrat lawmaker who proposed the bill stood up and lectured the Virginia House of Delegates on why Infanticide should be legal…

Meanwhile, Governor Ralph Northam (D-VA) endorsed killing the baby post-delivery, stating allowing the baby to live, is up to the mother and her doctor!

What does it say about our nation and our society that we have allowed our elected leaders to exterminate the babies in our nation? What does it say about our humanity, that we allow infanticide to become the emerging trend in our nation?
