democrats voted to allow the murder of children. Of course, they won’t call it that.
Senate Democrats on Monday blocked a Republican bill that would have threatened prison time for doctors who don’t try saving the life of infants born alive during failed abortions, leading conservatives to wonder openly whether Democrats were embracing “infanticide” to appeal to left-wing voters.
All prominent Democratic 2020 presidential hopefuls in the Senate voted down the measure, including Bernie Sanders of Vermont, Kamala Harris of California, Cory Booker of New Jersey, Kirsten Gillibrand of New York, Amy Klobuchar of Minnesota and Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts. The final vote was 53-44 to end Democratic delaying tactics — seven votes short of the 60 needed.
Three Democrats joined Republicans to support the bill — Joe Manchin of West Virginia, Bob Casey of Pennsylvania and Doug Jones or Alabama. Three Republicans did not vote, apparently because of scheduling issues and plane flight delays — including Kevin Cramer of North Dakota, Lisa Murkowski of Alaska and Tim Scott of South Carolina.
The bill stipulated:
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.”
Here’s the thing. Born alive babies have Constitutional rights. I know that’s something which makes liberals wretch but it is true. The 14th Amendment:
“All persons born or naturalized in the United States, and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States and of the State wherein they reside. No State shall make or enforce any law which shall abridge the privileges or immunities of citizens of the United States; nor shall any State deprive any person of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws.”
“born in the United States”
“Nor shall any State deprive any person of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law”
That makes any baby born alive – attempted abortion or not- a citizen of the United States and has all the rights and privileges of a US citizen and afforded the above.
Withholding care to such a newborn is a violation of the Constitutional rights of the baby. It is murder.
If it is acceptable to withhold life support to born alive babies, could life support for babies born to illegal aliens be withheld?
If a fetus is not a person, why should anyone receive pre-natal care and why should it be covered by insurance?
By liberal standards, there should no care until AFTER a baby is born and maybe not even then. Imagine having to give birth outside of a hospital and receive care for a baby only after it is born, should someone decide to let the baby live.
democrats have become the party of infanticide. It’s just another day at the office.
And they call conservatives “Nazis.”
