Senate Democrats block bill to protect babies born alive

February 26, 2019

  Since the 2016 election we have seen the Democratic take a hard left hand turn. This culminated with the 2018 election and also with the abortion bills we have seen come out of Virginia and New York.

  In response to the shocking comments made by Virginia Governor Ralph Northam, when he coldly described keeping a baby comfortable after birth until the mother and her doctor made a decision on whether or not to kill it, Republicans in the Senate tried to pass a bill which would protect babies which were born during a failed abortion. Democrats blocked the bill without even letting it get to the floor for a vote.

  Here is more:

Senate Democrats failed to protect babies from infanticide when they are born alive following botched abortions.

On Monday, the Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act, S. 311, failed, 53-44, with the requirement of a 60-vote supermajority for approval and only Democrats voting against it.

Introduced by Republican Sen. Ben Sasse of Nebraska, the legislation ensures any infant born alive after an abortion would be provided with medical care just as any other newborn.

  To be fair there were three Democrats who did vote in favor of the legislation and they were Bob Casey, Doug Jones, and Joe Manchin, the rest of them all voted to not even allow a vote on an anti-infanticide bill.

  That is how radical the Democratic party has become in a relatively short period of time and I have to say that at this point I am more saddened than anything else. I am also a little fearful of how radical the Democrats will become as they try to out-left each other as the 2020 election draws nearer.

    You have to say for the Dems, for the most part they stick together.
