To understand exactly what is now being justified by Democrats, in regards to abortion, the following definitions explain what a partial-birth abortion is, and why it is called partial birth…

What is Partial-Birth Abortion?
Partial-Birth Abortion is a procedure in which the
 abortionist pulls a living baby feet-first out of the womb and into the birth canal (vagina), except for the head, which the abortionist purposely keeps lodged just inside the cervix (the opening to the womb).  The abortionist punctures the base of the baby’s skull with a surgical instrument, such as long surgical scissors or a pointed hollow metal tube called a trochar.  He then inserts a catheter (tube) into the wound and removes the baby’s brain with a powerful suction machine.  This causes the skull to collapse, after which the abortionist completes the delivery of the now-dead baby.  

Why is it called “Partial-Birth”?
 
Under state laws, a “live birth” occurs when a baby is entirely expelled from the mother and shows any signs of life, however briefly — regardless of whether the baby is “viable,” i.e., developed enough to be sustained outside the womb with neo-natal medical assistance.  Even at 4½ months (20 weeks), perinatologists say that if a baby is expelled or removed completely from the uterus, she will usually gasp for breath and sometimes survive for hours, even though lung development is usually insufficient to permit successfully sustained respiration until 23 weeks.   Thus, the term “partial-birth” is perfectly
 descriptive.

Over the past few months, the Democrat Party has shifted from the so-called Party of women’s rights, to the Party of murder and death, as they have embraced abortion up to the final moment of the birth of a baby, and even post-delivery!

In fact, earlier this month, 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. Sadly, Democrats blocked its passage, citing it violated women’s right to choose!

Over the past month, 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 came under scrutiny. Especially as the Democrats are shifting from pushing for the abortion of newly fertilized embryos to now fully developed and many times already 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 @BenSasse did not mince words in response to comments from @GovernorVA today on

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 aborted 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…

“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. 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.”

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.”

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 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!

UPDATE (NEW INFORMATION)…

Now, Governor JB Pritzker promised to make Illinois the abortion capital as he has vowed to expand abortion access to unprecedented levels, as he pushes for abortion on demand, even post birth!

For example, the “Reproductive Health Act” legislation states that it

Provides that every individual has a fundamental right to make autonomous decisions about one’s own reproductive health. Provides that every individual who becomes pregnant has a fundamental right to continue the pregnancy and give birth or to have an abortion, and to make autonomous decisions about how to exercise that right. Provides that a fertilized egg, embryo, or fetus does not have independent rights under the law, of this State. Provides prohibited State actions. Provides that a party aggrieved by a violation of the Act may bring a civil lawsuit. Provides that a health care professional shall report each abortion performed to the Department of Public Health. Limits home rule powers. Repeals provisions regarding abortion in the Ambulatory Surgical Treatment Center Act, the Sexual Assault Survivors Emergency Treatment Act, and the Injunction Article of the Code of Civil Procedure.

Then, it goes on to enable the abortion of babies who are born, as it states that it…

Repeals the Illinois Abortion Law of 1975, the Partial-birth Abortion Ban Act, and the Abortion Performance Refusal Act.

In other words, abortion on demand, of embryos, fetuses, and born-alive babies!!! Therefore, abortion clinics will be free to LEGALLY KILL, SLAUGHTER, AND MURDER INFANT BABIES THAT ARE BORN ALIVE, AND NOT BE SUED, IMPRISONED, OR EVEN FINED! AKA…LEGALIZED MURDER!!!

It didn’t take long for a Clinton to chime in, as early criticisms of the new LEGALIZED MURDER laws kicked in. In fact, on SiriusXM’s “Signal Boost,” Chelsea Clinton touted that it would be ‘Unchristian’ to Return to Time Before Legal Abortion. She said…

“I look at my children and I have to quote Jim Yong Kim, ‘optimism is a moral choice.’ Every day I make the moral choice to be optimistic. That my efforts and my energies, particularly when I’m fortunate enough to be in partnership with kinda fellow travelers, hopefully, will make a difference. And when I think about all of the statistics that are painful of what women are confronting today in our country, and what even more women confronted pre-Roe and how many women died and how many more women were maimed because of unsafe abortion practices, we just can’t go back to that. Like that’s unconscionable to me, and also, I’m sure that this will unleash another wave of hate in my direction, but as a deeply religious person, it’s also unchristian to me.”

Perhaps Chelsea should look to the bible to understand the definition of what it means to be a “Christian”, in regards to abortion, and a woman’s ‘right to choose’. After all, the Bible says in Exodus 21:22-25 that…

“If men who are fighting hit a pregnant woman and she gives birth prematurely but there is no serious injury, the offender must be fined whatever the woman’s husband demands and the court allows. But if there is serious injury, you are to take life for life, eye for eye, tooth for tooth, hand for hand, foot for foot, burn for burn, wound for wound, bruise for bruise.”

Sadly, what does it say about our nation and our society, in that we have put more than 46 Million unborn babies to death since Roe v. Wade took effect? What does it say that today, our elected leaders are pushing to expand the slaughter of our innocent youth, to now include the mass extermination and genocide of babies fully born and delivered into our nation? What does it say about our humanity, that we allow infanticide to become the emerging trend in our nation? Sadly, it doesn’t mean that we are more “Christian”, as Chelsea Clinton and many within her Democrat Party seem to claim! Instead, it shows that they have become the Party of “Satan”, as they no longer fight for the youth of our nation, but instead for the innocent slaughter of ‘God’s most precious gift to mankind’, a precious human life and child!
