The Democrat politicians ghoulish response to born alive act
During President Trump’s State of the Union address earlier this month, Americans saw Democratic politicians for what they have truly become. People were shocked when the majority of the Democratic caucus, including most of the party’s women all dressed in white, couldn’t find it in their hearts to applaud when the president called for “a culture that cherishes innocent life.”One of their absurd responses to the bill is that it would harm women's health and reproductive rights. Since the baby is no longer in the womb that should be a moot issue. It also raises the question of how long after giving birth a mother can still refuse care for her child. Is it days, months years? It is such an absurd idea it would be laughable if the consequences were not so grim for a baby who survives an abortion.
We now know that wasn’t just a bad night for the Democrats, it was a genuine reflection of the craven ghoulishness underlying their attitudes and policy.
What normal, decent person could oppose providing care to a living baby struggling on a table? And yet that is exactly what 44 Democratic senators just did, effectively killing the Ben Sasse-sponsored “Born Alive” bill by keeping it from a floor vote.
Fox News reported, “The Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act would have required that ‘any health care practitioner present’ at the time of a birth ‘exercise the same degree of professional skill, care, and diligence to preserve the life and health of the child as a reasonably diligent and conscientious health care practitioner would render to any other child born alive at the same gestational age.’ “
While most of us would think this would be and remain the normal, sane thing to do, recent Democratic actions have disabused us of that notion.
New York passing a bill effectively allowing abortion on demand up to birth, and Virginia’s Democratic Gov. Ralph Northam’s shockingly banal support of the same even to the point of infanticide after birth, was a wake-up call and compelled Mr. Sasse to put forward the “Born Alive” bill.
Its failure to pass, while horrible, confirms an important revelation: The Democratic Party, the same people who keep telling us that politicians like them should be trusted to completely control our health care, refused to support a measure that would save the life of the most innocent among us.
