Senate Democrats take down attempt to protect abortion survivors

One would like to think that protecting human life transcends political expediency, no contest.

But that’s apparently not the case, as Senate Democrats reaffirmed their commitment to politics over the sanctity of life this week after voting against legislation that would prevent the effective murder of children born alive after a failed abortion attempt, according to the National Catholic Register.ย 

The legislation, known as the Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act, was introduced by Sen. Ben Sasse (R-NE) and would have required physicians to attempt to provide life-saving care to newborns that survived an abortion attempt.

The Nebraska Republican attempted to insert it into a recent budget resolution but it was ultimately shot down by every sitting Democratic senator aside from Sen. Joe Manchin (D-WV) and Sen. Bob Casey (D-PA).

In order for the amendment to be included in the budget resolution, Sasse needed 60 votes. He fell shy of that by eight votes, in a 52-48 decision in the upper chamber.

Aside from everyday Americans who believe in providing emergency care to an infant who just survived an attempt on its life, pro-life groups expressed their frustration and anger that such a measure can’t get the proper support that it deserves.

“Appalled that this didn’t pass. Thank you @Sen_JoeManchin & @SenBobCasey for voting pro-life. There’s nothing Democratic about denying medical care to newborn survivors of abortion,” tweeted left-leaning pro-life group Democrats For Life.

According to the Washington Free Beacon, Sasse has attempted to bring the bill to life every year since 2015, but has never been able to take the bill all the way due to a lack of support from the left. In this year’s attempt, the bill received four votes of support less than last year.

It’s somewhat surprising that Sasse can’t garner more support from Democrats on the issue — which is markedly different than the typical abortion fights — as a poll on the issue revealed that some 70 percent of Democrats supported the idea, given the extreme circumstances involved.

  1. If a child survives an abortion in this country, that child is now a citizen of this country. To allow that child to be killed is to condone the killing of an innocent citizen. Democrats have definitely lost it. My senators will hear from me on this one.

    1. I agree Jim Harris. If a baby is born and let die that is murder. But then even killing a baby in the womb is also murder.

      1. One of GODS commandments is,” Thou shall not kill “. So if that is a commandment should we not OBEY IT? These people better watch who they are coming against. When they die they still have to answer to GOD because HE is the one that created them. God judges a nation by the decisions the leaders make for the people, of that nation, make. If they make wrong decisions it’s not the leaders that pay for it, it’s the nation pays. GOD might let wars come to us or viruses. He loves us but we have to obey HIS commandments.

          1. Yes He did, Democrats thinks that applies to real murders who are setting in prisons nice and warm with three meals a day. They will understand when they bow before God and answer to God.

        1. GOD JUDGES ”NO ONE”! WE ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR OUR OWN DECISIONS. WHAT GOES AROUND, COMES AROUND AND THAT IS GOD’S LAW, NOT A JUDGEMENT. ”WHAT GOES UP, COMES DOWN”, THAT SIMPLE!

        2. So will the firehouses now be required to shut down their unwanted infant drop-off facilities? How do the child murder proponents propose that child-mothers dispose of their unwanted babies? Garbage cans? Toilets? Public sewers? Roadside ditches?

    2. Yeah Democratic party a bunch of BS hypocrites trying to act like the party of saving our precious life from the virus….but don’t care about the life of a baby. They are supporting the average abortion rate of over 600,000 babies a year which is over 200,000 US deaths more than this Virus …

      1. Yah! Didn’t criminal Joe say he would end this virus asap?
        Now it looks like maybe 2 maybe 3 more years?
        And congrats to Kaamaaaaalaaah for getting your statue, say? Does it take batteries for the vibrator? Or is it solar?

    3. Why have you waited so long? Democrats have been pro murder ever since Roe vs Wade and it has been getting worse every year. I truth it started with the murder of one of their own K.F.Kennedy. Every one of them and all working for PP should be tried for premeditated murder and get the death penalty.

    4. Where are the laws to protect the innocents. Biden and his low life partners are not worthy of the positions they obtained though theft of the election process. All of you democratic politicians who allow this to happen are now agreeing to the murder of a child.

    5. Yes you do have this right, abortion is murder. We adopted a child from a Korea as we could not adopt a child from America, to many abortions. I guess after 42 years we are still on the America list, our daughter is 42 and we have no regrets, as she has given us 6 beautiful grandchildren. Our biological son has a girlfriend again but he says girls want guys with money. So we will see with the girl he has now. I married Mike for his 58 Chevy
      and 150.00. We have been married for 52 years.

    6. NANCY PELOSI AND JOE BIDEN ARE BOTH CATHOLICS AND THEY STAND BY FOR ABORTON. THERE BISHOP IN THE CATHOLIC CHURCHES THEY GO TO NEEDS TO EXACUMACATE THEM BOTH. NO DUVOU CATHOLIC BELIEVE IN ABORTON. THEY BOTH NEED TO BE THROWN OUT OF CATHOLIC CHURCHES NOW. BIDEN NEEDS TO BE IMPEACHED FOR WHAT HE HAS DONE IN THREE WEEKS OF HIS PRESIDENCY TO DISTROY OUR COUNTRY. HE IS INCOMPENT ABOUT THE RULES IN OUR COUNTRY.THE DR THAT EXAMED HIS FOOT SHOULD HAVE HAD HIM TAKE A MENTAL TEST TO SEE IF HE IS INCOMPENT. HIS BRAIN DOESNT WORK. HE HAS NO IDEA WHAT HE IS SIGNING SOMEBODY IS HIS SPEAKER TELLINGHIM WHAT TO SAY AND DO. HE READS HIS NOTES INFRONT OF HIM AND SPEAKS AT TH E TELEPROMTER.

    7. You’re right Jim. How they can live with their conscience and moral integrity, if they have any left, is beyond me. It just sickens me to think they can’t support the lives of innocent babies, but yet try to push through all their pork in Trump’s COVID relief bill. I sure hope those who voted for these frauds pay attention to their sick agendas.

    8. I have a very liberal acqaintance & we had this conversation. I asked ” so you don’t believe in the death penalty, right?” She responded in the affirmative. I then asked “you do believe in abortion, right?” Again she responded in the affirmative. I then asked what crime has an aborted baby committed to deserve the death penalty? Absolute silence. The dems don’t see or won’t see the inherent irony in those two statements. Sick!

    1. Democrats are murderers and anti Christ.
      Simply immoral and criminal to kill a God’s creation, obvious they are Satan’s subjects.

      1. Your indignation is great however, you might want to tell your state’s representatives (Senators) that what they are condoning is MURDER!!

    2. They will answer there for sure, but they are going to answer before that. God will not let EVIL win. HE has a plan. We just need to believe and trust HIM.. Be patient.

    1. They are the force behind the ‘culture of death.’ St. Mother Teresa of Calcutta said ‘A Nation That Kills Its Children Has No Hope.’

    2. It’s not just the child they care nothing for, it’s everyone but themselves.
      AOC is a prime example. Her lies about the fiasco in DC centralize around her, she even expressed racism when she said a “white cop” came and offered to usher her to safety. She refused because he was white. What does that say?

  2. well The Homicidal democrats could care less about the sanctity of life. They look at it this way every aborted child and every one allowed to die after an abortion gone wrong is one person that will not contribute to their GLOBAL WARMING HOAX !

  3. this is murder, pure and simple. They will burn in HELL for their part in the death of each child.

  4. Everyone should know by now a self satisfaction president and Senate are all just demacrat murderers. With no respect or sanctity for human life. They all need mental treatment. And don’t be me in that group of people are Republicans I’m independent the only one I answer to is Jesus Christ.

    1. They need to be in jail,the hell with mental treatment, they should have gotten that long ago. To late now, they are plotting to take over America. Put them in jail.

      1. Susan, GOD has a plan. HE will not let EVIL win. There day is going to come before judgement day. ๐Ÿ™‚

    2. Good post Martha. AMEN to that. God won’t give mercy to them for this. I also am an independent conservative and only answer to the creator, God almighty.

  5. The demonrats believe they are above ALL laws. The demonratic party should have been ended long ago. They are evil to the core.

    1. Hey, Hey, Hey!!!!
      The Democrats ARE above the law !!!
      There is NO DOJ with a backbone OR the balls to FORCE democrats to OBEY LAWS.
      The DOJ are the ones who SHOULD FORCE democrats to either OBEY the law OR GO TO JAIL!!
      Truth of the matter is simple:
      DOJ ISN’T DOING THEIR JOB; THEY ARE PAID OFF. HOPE THEY ARE BILLIONAIRES.
      QUESTION: Is betraying DEMOCRACY for Communism worth it??? For you, your kids, your grandkids, etc.???

  6. God is watching .Killing a baby who is the image of God is killing God.There is judgement coming to everyone on earth .Better repent

  7. I thought about this a lot, my conclusion is; it’s Murder, no one is more innocent, we have a responsibility to protect these Babies, however I do believe in birth control methods. Get Fixed, it’s reversible now.

  8. These congress people that believe in this could become late term abortions by their parents. When one starts killing after birth at what point does it stop being an abortion or plain murder.

  9. It is really a sad day when they can’t even administer help to an innocent baby that wasn’t asked to be born in the first place!!! Hopefully, they will get their just rewards when their time comes! I’ll keep praying for all those babies!!! AMEN ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ™

  10. Good donโ€™t publish it the people I want to have it have it. Iโ€™m tired of the nut cases out there

  11. I wonder if Biden felt that way when anyone of his kids were getting ready to be born!! SINCE HE SAY’S HE’S A DEVOUT CATHOLIC!! JUST SAYING!!!

  12. One of the ten commandments is “Thous shalt not kill”. How religiously “devout” are these people who can vote to against one of God’s commands? Are they ready for God’s judgment? They just are not believers in God, no matter what they say they are. Even if they don’t believe in God, how can they destroy human lives without feelings of remorse? I hope those who voted these people into office will have their eyes open to see exactly what is going on and never vote just blindly vote along party lines, but for what the person/s stand for.

  13. This is MURDER plain and simple. I feel all types of abortion (unless it’s needed to save a woman’s life) is Murder. Some young women use abortion as a means of birth control. How in the world do these people live with themselves. Would any of these emotionless members of Congress want their child or grandchild aborted? It appears if something is not personal to them, they don’t care about anybody else, born or unborn. Satanic!!!!

    th

  14. You’ll be fined or jailed if you destroy an American Eagle, but it’s ok to murder a newborn, even when it seems that after surviving attempted murder, it’s Spirit is meant to be born!!!!!! This is SO EVIL!

  15. Did anyone reading this THINK that the Democrats would do anything other than vote to KILL your children and grandchildren. Oh my, the stench of Concentration Camps.

  16. Any Human Being that supports Baby Murder Abortion and the murder of babies that survived the murder attempt will face God and will answer for every murder abortion.
    Men, women and the Nazi butchers that do this murderous act. They cannot be doctors or they wouldnโ€™t do these murders. Men and women grow up already get fixed if you donโ€™t want children. With all the products on the market to prevent pregnancy baby murder abortions should be unnecessary. It is amazing they never mention how many women die or have major health issues after they have a baby murder procedure done.
    Every politician will answer to God for this barbaric horrific act of murder. Who votes for these evil racist people????

  17. We were all created by God, in His Image. He knit us together in our mother’s wombs.(even the 62 plus million little preborn beings sadistically murdered in the womb).
    Has anyone considered that covid 19 may be a judgement from God for the egregious sin of abortion? Abortion is infanticide and those who advocate for that are serving satan.
    I know a lot of good democrats, but for the most part, their leadership is evil.

  18. Killing a helpless infant is Murder of the worst kind. Those that condone it deserve to go start to HELL. Why are the Democrats in favor of such horrible deeds? Those that condone the killing of infants Should be tried for murder.

  19. Simple solution: Prosecute the abortionists and mothers with first degree murder for every abortion survivor they terminate; doctors, mid-wives, abortionists, whatever. Prosecute them whether the child could easily have survived without special care or if the child was too premature to survive without heroic efforts to save the child. Prison time and gthe death penalty would be very effective deterrents.

  20. Call your Senator and Representative and let them know of your concerns. It may or may not help, but if it doesn;t help you know who not to vote for next time.

  21. What do you expect from criminals that don’t have to worry about getting elected anymore , Dominion “election ” equipment just “elects” according to software input manipulations ! Dominion CEO BRAGGED about it ! We are in a communist regime now .

  22. Abortion is premeditated murder, murderer for hire. If you have a newborn baby and abandoned it on the street or anywhere and they find the mother she is charged with neglect or murder if the baby does not survive. Isn’t it the same, shouldn’t doctors be held accountable for their death?? We need to stop this what is good for them is bad for others.

  23. any one woman that aborts her child is a ciminal!! why can she not give birth to this living ,breating,
    human being and put up for adoption ! intead of killing her own child????

    i would think our government instead of allowing killing of infants should shot down these killing mills.

  24. The democrats are here to do Satans work and nothing else Hope God steps up to the plate soon or we are doomed!

  25. Agree with all above posts! To all those who agree with โ€œ murder on demandโ€ the blood of those innocents is on YOUR hands! How will you answer to GOD for this? How dare you call yourselves humane? You are the tools of satan!

  26. Abortion is not planning a family. Abortion is the result of the failure to plan. Everyone of those Dems that voted to approve this should be charged with murder. Pro- life charge them!

  27. How do you KILL helpless babies, join the Democratic party they are the evil that want to kill starting with babies, next it will be us!!
