On Monday, Senate Democrats blocked a Republican bill known as the Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Act, a piece of legislation that, among other things, would potentially send doctors to prison for refusing to save the lives of viable babies of botched abortion procedures. In terms of basic care, it simply requires that the child receive the same standard medical treatment of any other baby at the same gestational stage. In fact, despite what Democrats like Senator Elizabeth Warren claim, the legislation doesn’t even restrict access to abortion. It is not an attack on women. It is not, as the immoral degenerates of the NARAL said, an "extremist" or "anti choice" bill.
It merely posits the idea that a viable infant — outside the womb — should be treated with the same care whether it happens to be born in an abortion clinic or in a local hospital:
"If an abortion results in the live birth of an infant, the infant 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."
To say that this vote should have been a “no brainer” for every politician — regardless of party affiliation — would be the understatement of the century.
The fact that it failed to pass is indeed one of the saddest and most evil tragedies in this nation’s history. Forty-four American senators outright refused to condemn the slaughter of born-alive infants. Every Democrat, save for three who withheld, voted against the bill. President Trump took to Twitter to point out the inherent extremism in the Democratic position on abortion:
As you might remember, New York recently legalized abortion-on-demand through every stage of pregnancy with the “Reproductive Health Care Act.” Not long after, disgraced Virginia Governor Ralph Northam openly endorsed infanticide during an interview with a local radio station. Many of his fellow Democrats either applauded his stance or refused to address his comments. Few have distanced themselves from Northam altogether.
The time for euphemisms is over. Let’s speak bluntly and honestly: This is demonic, immoral, and reprehensible. It is wicked and depraved at levels unseen since ancient barbarism. It is Hitleresque evil. And no, I do not mean that exaggeratively or metaphorically. I mean it in the strictest and most literal sense possible. This is about basic humanity and basic decency. There are some moral lines in this universe — in the spiritual realm — that were not meant to be crossed.
Putting all bipartisanism, opinion, ideology, and politics aside, one thing has become unmistakably and inarguably clear: The Democratic Party is now the party of infanticide. They have unashamedly embraced child murder at every stage of pregnancy and every stage of viability, including fourth-trimester abortions. Liberal progressive politicians — such as Kamala Harris, Hillary Clinton, Bernie Sanders, and others — who once preached that abortions should be “safe, legal, and rare,” are now intentionally and cheerfully conflating abortion with infanticide, and making no apologies for it.
Fortunately, as a recent YouGov poll reveals, the vast majority of Americans — including many pro-choicers — not only see through this absurd charade, but stand opposed to it as well. Dems are literally alienating their own base all in the name of some mysterious and nonexistent right to murder babies, including those born alive during failed abortions. It’s truly a bewildering, horrific, and astounding political spectacle to behold. They are destroying their own Party in pursuit of a radical extremist ideology.
Ironically, this is the same Party that will champion human beings as being worthy of inherent respect when it comes to issues like sexual assault, immigration, and education. And yet, they refuse to treat the most innocent and defenseless among us with the same respect and care.
If Democrats are perfectly fine with leaving a living, breathing baby on a table as he cries, moves, struggles, and gasps for his very life, then they have not only openly advocated for infanticide, they have inched us ever closer to a society where human beings have no intrinsic worth or value at all. And when we arrive at that dark and hideous place, may God have mercy on us all, though we surely shall not deserve it.
