Does anyone in the Democratic Party care anymore?
We talked about Dems reaction to the new bill that the House passed yesterday that would require medical care for infants that survived an abortion:
But I felt the actual vote tally deserved its own writeup.
A whopping 210 Democrats voted against this bill to protect babies born alive.
From Fox News:
Nearly every House Democrat on Wednesday voted against legislation that would require immediate medical attention for babies who are born alive after an attempt was made to abort them.
The House passed the Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act, which says any infant born alive after an attempted abortion is a "legal person for all purposes under the laws of the United States." Doctors would be required to care for those infants as a "reasonably diligent and conscientious health care practitioner would render to any other child born alive."
The bill passed 220-210, and all 210 of the "no" votes came from Democrats. Only one Democrat voted for the bill — Rep. Henry Cuellar of Texas — and one other Democrat, Rep. Vicente Gonzalez of Texas, voted "present."
Only one Democrat!
What happened to "safe, legal, and rare"?
What happened to "common sense" and "compassion"?
The Democrats claim the bill is redundant and unnecessary (it won't pass in the Dem-controlled Senate, after all), but that's obviously a cover since they voted in favor of the anti-lynching bill that was actually completely pointless and redundant.
The difference is that lynching has been outlawed for a hundred years and never happens today, whereas babies are born alive after abortion every year.
"We all know in 2019, then-Gov. Northam of the state of Virginia stated this: 'The infant would be delivered, the infant would be kept comfortable, the infant would be resuscitated if that's what the mother and the family desired, and then a discussion would ensue between the physicians and the mother,'" said Rep. Jim Jordan, R-Ohio.
"The cavalier attitude he displayed towards human life is just wrong," Jordan said. "It is simple. Infants born alive following an abortion are kids, are children. All newborns deserve the same level of care."
Republicans are often portrayed as not caring for the whole individual.
But this isn't caring at all. It's viewing human life as disposable.
You're telling me conservatives should feel ashamed for not calling a grown man by female pronouns because it is "literally violence" when you won't even meet well over halfway into the "we shouldn't murder babies" camp??
