Republicans are fighting tooth and nail for the rights of abortion survivors. As I write this, I am shocked that we have come to this as a Nation. The amount of liberals calling to end the life of an innocent child who miraculously survived their attempts to murder them is sickening.
Republican lawmakers agree and are pushing to pass a bill(Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act) to have those babies receive the same medical care that doctors would give any child born under normal circumstances.
The Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act would require medical professionals to give the same medical care to a baby who survived an abortion as any other baby of the same age would receive, as well as take the baby to a hospital. If a child was intentionally killed, the abortionist would face fines or up to five years jail time, according to a press release from Scalise.
“I think it is disappointing that we have to use the discharge petition to get a vote on infanticide,” Rep. Warren Davidson, R-Ohio, told The Daily Signal Monday in a phone interview. “It is stunning to me that this discharge petition is a partisan issue, these babies are alive.”
Davidson, who said he “100 percent,” supports the effort, added that “it is stunning to me that this is not unanimous consent.
Sen. Ben Sasse, R-Neb., tried last week to hold a unanimous consent vote on the Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act in the Senate following New York legalizing abortion up to birth in January and the Virginia Legislature attempting to pass a similar bill. However, Sen. Patty Murray, D-Wash., objected.
Wherever you stand on abortion, how can you think it's anything other than murder to kill a baby after it's born alive during an abortion? Today I asked the House Democrat Majority Leader why they once again refused to even consider our bill to ban this disgusting practice. pic.twitter.com/OA7kYlo0E2
