Senate Democrats Vote For Dead Baby Guarantee

Ben Sasse
Senate Democrats have again blocked a Republican bill that would have threatened prison for doctors who don't try saving the life of infants born alive during abortions.

The vote on S.311 (Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act) was the latest instance in which Democrats have voted against protecting the life of a baby that survives a late-term abortion.

"I want to ask each and every one of my colleagues whether or not we're OK with infanticide," said the measure's chief sponsor, Sen. Ben Sasse, (R-NE).

Senators voted 53-44 (see roll call vote) for Sasse's bill — seven votes short of the 60 needed to end Democratic delaying tactics aimed at derailing the measure.

As we see it, the bill presented Democrat lawmakers with a simple, moral choice: Protect the life of an infant born alive or guarantee a dead baby to any woman seeking an abortion.

Senate Democrats opted to vote for the dead baby guarantee.

According to Associated Press reports, several dozen House Republicans, led by Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, (CA-23), stood on the Senate floor during the vote, just as a contingent of House Democrats did last month during a crucial vote on ending the government shutdown. Republicans control the Senate by 53-47.

President Trump reacted to the vote while en route to his summit in Vietnam with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, tweeting: "This will be remembered as one of the most shocking votes in the history of Congress. If there is one thing we should all agree on, it's protecting the lives of innocent babies."

If an infant is born alive during an abortion, Sasse's bill would require doctors to render "the same degree" of care used for any birth. The baby would have to be immediately sent to a hospital.

Doctors who violate those requirements and other medical staffers who don't report violations could face fines and up to five years in prison. Doctors who intentionally kill a child born alive after an abortion would face prosecution under federal murder statutes — potentially a death penalty or life in prison.

According to Associated Press reports, Republicans in the Democratic-run House plan to try forcing a vote on a similar measure this spring using the seldom-used parliamentary tactic of a discharge petition, which would require at least 20 Democrats to buck their Party leadership to sign-on.

In their embrace of unrestricted abortion Democrats in New York, Virginia and the United States Congress have entered a realm of depravity not seen since Adolf Hitler began a program of eugenics and euthanasia to “cleanse” German society of people the Nazi elite deemed undesirable.

The Democrat Party’s support for what Virginia Democrat Del. Dawn Adams correctly calls “partial birth infanticide” is part of a national trend where Democrats hold unchecked legislative authority.

On Jan. 22, New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo signed the Reproductive Health Care Act (RHA) into law, which expands the circumstances under which a woman can legally obtain an abortion — including up until the moment of birth.

The Reproductive Health Act removed barriers for women seeking to get abortions in New York. But some Democrats wish it could have gone further and affirm a woman’s right to an abortion with no legal restrictions.

The new New York law already allows abortions to be performed by non-doctors up until the point of birth, and many Democrats see the bill as a step towards deregulating abortion entirely, making it like cosmetic surgery, a strictly elective procedure with no consideration of the unborn life that would be terminated.

For his part, Cuomo said it is all part of a push for "socially progressive" legislation in direct opposition of the Trump administration "that wants to roll back Roe v. Wade." He went further, saying not only would he like to put Roe v. Wade into law, but he'd "like to incorporate it into the constitution."

We agree with New York Archbishop Timothy Dolan that Cuomo's public celebration of the passage of his state's "partial birth infanticide" law was "ghoulish, grisly, and gruesome," but the Cardinal didn’t go nearly far enough in his condemnation of Cuomo and others who have made infanticide a central tenet of the Democratic Party’s platform.

New York may be gone, but the line against a rebirth of the moral corruption of eugenics and euthanasia can still be drawn by Congress and in other state legislatures across the country where lawmakers refuse to engage in the depravity of guaranteeing a dead baby to a woman seeking an abortion.
