Democrats had a chance to prove they’re not Pro-infanticide after Gov Northam’s revolting statements supporting it. Instead, they doubled down.
Since the New Year began, Democrats have begun aggressively pushing their pro-abortion agenda, throwing off all restraint — quite literally.
Now that the Supreme Court is no longer a safe bet for Democrats, and fearing an overturning of Roe v. Wade, blue States have been fast-tracking State-level legislation to Max out those rights.
So eager to pass those bills that legislators find themselves surprised by just HOW much latitude those laws allow — including, to hear Governor Northam tell it — infanticide for born-alive babies.
If you missed it, you can find the story here:
That was the story that is ‘conveniently’ (from the Democrat’s perspective) eclipsed by the Racist photo that came to light just a day or two later.
In response to that shocking video, Republican Senators put forward a bill that should have been pretty straightfoward and non-controversial.
You know, what with those thoroughly American values of “Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness”. Sadly, no.
Sen. Ben Sasse(R-NE) spoke about Gov. Ralph Northam’s infanticide statements:
On the Senate floor this evening, Senator Ben Sasse (R., Neb.) called for unanimous consent on his Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act, which provides protections for any infants born alive after attempted abortion procedures.
Democratic senator Patty Murray of Washington objected to the bill on the floor, preventing it from receiving unanimous consent. Murray claimed that the legislation is unnecessary because there are already legal prohibitions on infanticide. Murray was the only Democratic senator to come to the Senate floor this evening and left immediately after objecting.
Earlier today, Senate majority leader Mitch McConnell affirmed his support for Sasse’s legislation and hinted that he’d be willing to bring it to the floor for a roll-call vote. “I hope that none of my colleagues on the other side of the aisle invent any reasons to block this request later today,” McConnell said. “That would make quite a disturbing statement. If they do inexplicably block Senator Sasse’s effort, I can assure them that this will not be the last time we try to ensure that all newborns are afforded this fundamental legal protection.”
In response to Murray’s objection, Sasse noted the recent abortion expansion in New York, which contradicted her claim by removing protections for newborn infants. And, in fact, only 26 states have affirmative protections for children born alive after attempted abortions. The Nebraska senator’s renewed effort to push the bill comes on the heels of Virginia governor Ralph Northam’s recent comments appearing to defend allowing some newborn infants to die, depending on the circumstances and their mother’s wishes.
“We are actually talking about babies that have been born. The only debate on the floor tonight is about infanticide. . . . This is about fourth-trimester abortion,” Sasse said on the floor this evening, after quoting Northam’s remarks. “Everyone in this Senate ought to be able to say that the little baby deserves life, that she has rights, and that killing her is wrong.”
So committed are they to the #Resist strategy they can’t even bring themselves to make infanticide illegal.
Does it have anything to do with being in the pocket of Big Abortion? Do we need to remind you where that money COMES from?
You remember those undercover Planned Parenthood videos, right? The ones about selling baby parts?
Looks like the President has the Democrats sized up pretty accurately:
Democrats are becoming the Party of late term abortion, high taxes, Open Borders and Crime!

It makes one wonder how tender Christians ‘too pure of soul’ to vote for a Republican during a Trump administration fell about the morality of that decision now?
Get Doug Giles’ new book:
Rules For Radical Christians is not a survival devotional designed to help the young Christian adult limp through life. Rather, it is a road-tested, dominion blueprint that will equip the young adult with leadership skills and sufficient motivation to rise to a place of influence in an overtly non-Christian culture. Rules For Radical Christians gives the reader the keys to become strategically equipped to move into an anti-theistic environment and effectively influence it for the glory of God.
