Abortion has become a huge topic on the state and federal level.
States like New York have removed restrictions on late-term abortions, causing uproar among many Americans.
And you won’t believe what Chuck Schumer said to describe Republican efforts to pass an Anti-Infanticide Bill.
Pro-lifers know babies in the womb deserve the same safety and protection as a newborn would receive.
But the decision to save innocent newborns is in jeopardy thanks to Chuck Schumer’s and Nancy Pelosi’s efforts.
After a slew of Democrat lawmakers defended the gruesome process of letting babies die after they survived a botched abortion, Republicans in the House, led by Steve Scalise and Ann Wagner, sought to push a bill that guaranteed the safety of newborn children.
The Born Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act is a bill to ensure babies born alive during an abortion are given the same medical care as any other newborn baby.
It had strong bipartisan support among voters.
Rep. Steve Scalise and Ann Wagner say, “86 percent of Republicans, 70 percent of Democrats, and 75 percent of independents support this legislation.”
Why a bill that guarantees the safety of newborn babies is even needed has many peoples’ heads spinning.
But when states are allowing late-term abortions up to the moment of birth and even defending the murder of newborn babies, action is required.
With a Democrat-controlled House, however, a discharge petition would be needed to mandate a vote.
If a majority of House members signed it, it would be brought to the floor for a full debate and vote, regardless of objections from House Speaker Nancy Pelosi.
The bill ultimately failed to get enough Democrat support.
And when Chuck Schumer was asked whether leaving babies to die on a hospital table was actually infanticide, Schumer described the effort to save these newborn babies as “Bogus.”
You know,” Schumer said, “this issue has been brought up over and over again. It’s bogus in terms of how our Republican friends are interpreting this.”
Schumer claims infanticide is “already illegal,” but the fact is leaving babies to die is legal in almost half the country.
Only 26 states have laws mandating doctors provide medical care to infants born alive during a botched abortion.
It’s a shame congressional leaders like Chuck Schumer can’t unequivocally state the killing of a newborn baby is wrong.
But Schumer only cares about one thing: consolidating and holding onto his power.
No doubt President Trump is disgusted by the opposing party’s decision to defend infanticide.
They are, after all, becoming the party of late-term abortions and infanticide.
What do you think? Should Trump sign an executive order making the murder of unborn children illegal?
