Democrats filibuster life-saving bill

February 27, 2020

Democrats and the media (pardon my redundancy) routinely claim that President Trump has dragged the Republican Party away from its traditional principles and to the far-right. But a recent analysis found that the major positions of the GOP have remained pretty consistent going back to Reagan, while the Democrats have moved sharply to the left.

I can think of no more disgusting example of that than yesterday’s vote in the Senate, where 56 Senators, including all the Republicans and three Democrats, voted to pass the Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act, but it was blocked from final passage by a filibuster, thanks to 41 Democratic Senators opposing it. The three Senators running for President (Sanders, Warren and Klobuchar) weren’t there, but all three have previously opposed the bill.

All that this bill does is codify that if a baby is born alive during a “botched” abortion (“botched” meaning that the patient lived), it must receive the same medical care that any other baby would receive. This should not be a partisan issue. It’s a blindingly obvious example of basic human decency. At that point, the baby (and yes, it is a baby) is a separate, living human being. Like every other US citizen, from children to homeless drug addicts, he or she is entitled by law to receive emergency medical care.

But 41 Democrats (plus three more who were off running for President) are so beholden to the abortion lobby and its chief pusher, Planned Parenthood, that they actually voted to deny emergency medical care to that child rather than do anything that might theoretically place any limits at all on their radical “abortion up to and beyond the moment of birth” agenda. Didn’t Elizabeth Warren just rant about how horrible it was to say "Kill it" to a pregnant woman? Didn't Bernie Sanders just insist that “health care is a human right”? To oppose this law, they not only have to contradict their own statements, they have to deny the reality that a baby is a human.

To quote another long-ago Senate proceeding, “At long last, have you left no sense of decency?”

    The question here is who votes for these killers.

    Not only do we need to insure President Trump is re-elected, we MUST get the house and Senate as well. These radicals have got to be thrown out or our country and our grandchildren's future is doomed. I believe Trump will succeed but if the dem get either the other 2, it will only be 4 years of nothing but impeach, lies, hatred and stagnation.

    Thank you for sharing the obvious, but these days it seems difficult for so many people to find the obvious. Glad to find your sharing of this sad truth. I’ll share this with somebody else who’s willing to receive the truth. Those who are willing to receive the truth are becoming fewer, sadly, these days. Thank you, Mike, for your service....

    How reprehensible the left has become. If you can't have mercy on the most helpless of life I don't want you to represent me or this United States. May God use your own words and actions to bring judgement on all of you.

    Governor, this is disgusting and shameful.
    Can it come up for vote again?

    It is greatly frustrating for normal, everyday, middle-class Republicans as ourselves who have worked hard all our lives and do not have an abundance of funds at our fingertips to be able to find ways to fight this continual idiocy! It becomes incapacitating after a while!

    We moved from NYC to the "suburbs" in 1975 & never regretted the move. We looked for a better way of life & better education for our children. About 99% of our childhood friends have moved from NYC and many have moved out of NY State. It's time to get rid of people like Governor Cuomo, Mayor DeBlasio, and others like Bloomberg!

    Thanks for keeping us up to date. I assume none of these people that voted against this bill are God fearing! This, as well as "assisted suicide" is nothing more than murder.

    It sickens me that Democrats would actually murder newborns. I have friends who are Democrats and I don't think they believe that newborns should be allowed to die. Obviously, many of them have turned from God and are focusing on their own agendas. We must continue to pray, pray, pray....

    Isn't it about time that Robert Frost article that saved the children of England entitled "Modest Proposal" be reprinted?

    The Democrat party is no longer recognizable
    to me. Disgusting that they don't view a baby as a human being. Disgusting!!

    Common Sense (foreign concept to Marxist-Democrats) should tell you that if a baby is born alive it is then MURDER to kill the child.

    These dem Senators need to hang their heads in shame, and they will answer for this when they stand before the Great White Throne. Also, if a pregnant woman is murdered, the criminal is charged with the murder of 2 human beings, So this double standard needs to be straighten out by SCOTUS, by reversing Roe v. Wade.

    So, the Democrats stopped a bill that would give a baby that survived an abortion the right to medical care as a survivor of an attempted murder. The Democrats have become a party of evil. They promote death of an innocent baby, they promote Socialism in America, they promote open borders that totally allows anyone in the world to come to our country without knowing anything about them. They care NOTHING about our country nor its citizens nor the illegals (they support the illegals only to get more votes). They would do ANYTHING to get votes because all they live for is POWER, CONTROL and MONEY!

    It is disgusting that those 41 Dems opposed this bill. It is equally disgusting that the three Democrat Senators running for President..shirk their duty and obligation to vote on such an important bill. The whole ugly mess of abortion should be a given..no abortion. I am ashamed of my country and those "running" it for their unGodly support of killing babies and the killing of this bill. No government funding for Planned Parenthood!

    These leftist/socialists are such hypocrites.

    Praying that God intervenes and this law is passed. The scantily of life is one thing that depresses the people of God from the world.

    If the Democrat Senators who filibustered the life-saving
    bill that would save the life of a baby can't get re-elected
    without the votes of abortionists, Planned Parenthood
    and the women who support them by having abortions,
    then the Senators should find a new line of work, and
    seek the forgiveness of Almighty God who gives us life.

    These people really are doing their father's business. Satan is alive and apparently very active in the Democratic party. May God bring it down on their heads!

    I have asked President Trump, how can we ever
    make America great again if we don't stop killing
    babies in the womb? I think the single biggest
    mistake the U.S. Supreme Court made was
    approval of Roe v. Wade. I cannot understand
    why anyone in America thinks killing babies is
    not a criminal act? Every woman in the United
    States knows about birth control pills and/or
    abstinence to avoid pregnancy. Abortion is not
    a woman's right and should not be legal.
    How long must we wait for the Supreme Court
    to reverse their deadly mistake?

    We might get something done in America if we could quarantine the DemocRats to a lonely deserted island in the pacific to cannibalize each other.

    Dear Governor,The second sentence of the Declaration of Independence declares “We hold these truths to be self-evident,that all men are created equal,that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among those are Life,Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. Science tells us that Fertilized egg, Embryo, fetus,babies are all alive and thus are examples of Life!!THEREFORE according to the Declaration All have a Right to LIFE!!

    It is impossible for me to understand how any woman of any age could agree that a baby born alive during a "botched" abortion should then be killed. Yes "killed". I am 84 years old and have two sons and one daughter. I still morn for the baby that I lost early in my 4th (my last) pregnancy. What is wrong with these women?
