The Democrat Party is overflowing with boneheaded politicians who do the worst things in the name of the Left’s radical agenda for America.
And Democrat politicians holding statewide office in Virginia are some of the worst offenders lately.
Now, Hillary Clinton’s pick for Vice President is doing the dumbest thing possible representing the Commonwealth in Congress.
Infanticide has become part of the Democrats’ agenda as they seek to pay back Planned Parenthood for helping the Left take control of the U.S. House.
Ralph Northam, the much disgraced Democrat Governor of Virginia, publicly defended letting born-alive babies die when Democrats tried to ram up-to-birth abortion into law in the state.
In response, Republicans in the U.S. Senate introduced legislation to protect babies born alive during a botched abortion.
Not surprisingly, Democrats in the U.S. Senate showed just how in bed with Planned Parenthood they are by trying to block the bill to ban infanticide from being voted on.
Nevertheless, the Republican majority will bring the bill to a vote soon.
But Virginia Senator Tim Kaine — a self-proclaimed Catholic, and Hillary Clinton’s running mate in 2016 — is apparently going to vote against banning infanticide.
National Review reports:
Senator Ben Sasse (R., Neb.) brought the bill to the floor earlier this month, in the wake of Virginia governor Ralph Northam’s comments appearing to endorse physicians’ right to let newborns die, at least in some circumstances. The entire Senate will vote on the legislation on Monday.
. . .
Though Kaine has yet to issue a statement on how he plans to vote, he recently responded to constituent inquiries about his stance on the bill with a letter, a copy of which was obtained by National Review. The text doesn’t say explicitly whether he’ll vote against Sasse’s bill next week, but the implication seems to be that he intends to oppose it.
“This bill would establish new requirements for health care practitioners in the case of a fetus who survives an abortion,” Kaine writes. It’s an intriguing turn of phrase: A fetus, after all, is what the Left has chosen to call unborn children in an effort to dehumanize them. If a fetus survives an abortion, presumably it is no longer a fetus but a newborn infant.
The rest of the letter is similarly slippery. “I support the right of women to make their own health and reproductive decisions,” Kaine goes on. “For that reason, I oppose efforts to weaken the basic holding of Roe v. Wade . . . [and oppose] restricting and criminalizing women’s reproductive decisions.”
Voting in favor of protecting babies born alive during a botched abortion should be a no-brainer for every Senator.
Especially one that purports to be a devout Catholic.
But apparently, Democrat Tim Kaine doesn’t want to offend Planned Parenthood.
We want to know what do you think.
Will the passion of Americans on this issue ultimately end the travesty of late-term abortion and infanticide?
