Abortion has become a national firestorm in the last couple months.
States like New York have removed restrictions on late-term abortions.
So Republicans tried to make it illegal to kill born children and what Nancy Pelosi pulled will make your jaw drop.
Virginia Governor Ralph Northam, a Democrat, gruesomely described and defended the process for letting babies born during a botched abortion die on the table.
His comments disgusted many Americans.
Now, some Republican lawmakers sought to act quickly at the federal level in hopes to protect innocent newborn children.
The Born Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act is a bill to ensure babies born during an abortion are given the same medical care as any other baby born.
It has strong bipartisan support among voters.
Rep. Steve Scalise (R-LA) and Ann Wagner (R-MO), claim “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 children is even needed has many peoples’ head spinning.
But when states are allowing late-term abortions and even defending the murder of born children, action is required.
In an op-ed on Fox News, Reps. Scalise and Wagner write:
Abortion survivors live among us. Melissa Ohden, for example, was a victim of an attempted saline abortion in which she was burned, born, and later saved by the grace of a nurse who “couldn’t just leave me there to die” and rushed her to a neonatal intensive care unit in a hospital for treatment. Some abortion survivors, like Melissa, publicly advocate for abortion survivor protection laws, and even more survivors live quietly as regular, productive Americans. However, hundreds of living, breathing newborn abortion survivors are not given a chance at life and are left to die in utility closets, buckets, or toilets.
But House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has blocked the bill from coming to the floor for a vote at least 25 times this year alone.
With Planned Parenthood’s cronies calling the shots in the U.S. House however, a discharge petition would be needed to mandate a vote.
And if a simple majority of House members sign it, the Born Alive bill would be brought to the floor for a full debate and vote, over objections of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi.
The fact Democrats can’t stand for life and go against their party to protect a newborn baby is beyond disturbing.
Democrats really are becoming the party of open borders, crime, and late-term abortions.
We will keep you up-to-date on any new developments in this ongoing story.
What do you think? Do newborn babies deserve the same protections that every American is afforded – the right to life?
