This truly amazing passage was written by CNN’s Caroline Kelly, who is billed by the network as a “breaking news reporter”
It discusses the BASPA bill, – blocked by Democrats in the House – which would have required that babies born alive after an unsuccessful abortion attempt should be treated as live babies – i.e. kept alive rather than allowed to die.
I’m not kidding. All BASPA says is that live babies are, in fact, live babies and should be treated as such. And Democrats blocked it.
This, by itself, is depraved enough. But, just in case you think it couldn’t be even worse, let me show you how Ms. “Breaking News Reporter” Kelly describes babies born under these circumstances?
Here are her own words (the bold print is mine):
“The second bill to be considered Tuesday is the Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act, sponsored by Republican Sen. Ben Sasse of Nebraska, that would require abortion providers to work to ‘preserve the life and health’ of a fetus that was born following an attempted abortion as they would for a newborn baby, or face up to five years in prison.”
A fetus that was born? A fetus that was born???
Just what the eff do you think YOU are, Ms. Kelly?
How much of an IQ does it take to understand that a baby born alive is a live baby? The answer, apparently, is a higher IQ than that displayed by Caroline Kelly, and whomever at CNN looked at this passage before allowing it on the network’s website.
And then we have the Democrats who blocked passage of this bill.
How much more ghoulish does it get then saying, “since the baby wasn’t wanted, it doesn’t count as a baby. So we’ll make sure that whomever attempted the abortion can just leave it alone until it dies”?
But try and find mainstream media’s coverage of this sick-and-then-some Democrat move. Try and find a major news venue telling you that Democrats blocked a bill that did nothing other than prevent legal infanticide.
Let me know how much luck you have.
UPDATE: Well, well, well. Ms. Kelly has revised her commentary. The new version refers to ” a fetus that was born following an attempted abortion”
Uh….is that supposed to get you closer to admitting we’re talking about a live baby without actually saying it, Caroline? Why are you so averse to calling the child what it is: a child? Who are you so terrified of offending? Tell us.
If this was supposed to make things better, rest assured it did not.
