On February 16th, I wrote about Senator Ben Sasse (R-NE) introducing the Born Alive Survivors Protection Act (BASPA) and Democrat opposition to it.
Well, “action” on this bill occurred today. And I do not own the words to express my revulsion.
From Matt Walsh’s article at dailywire.com. The bold print is mine:
On Tuesday, Democrats in the U.S. Senate blocked a bill that would have required clinics and hospitals to provide basic medical treatment to infants born alive after failed abortions. Democrats tried to position the Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act as a radical assault on the bodily autonomy of women and an intrusion of the government into medical decisions, but it was nothing of the sort. Read the text of the bill right here. Despite the histrionics and claims from Democrats like Senator Gillibrand’s that the legislation would “harm women,” all the act would have done is prohibit abortionists from leaving infant children to die painful and unnecessary deaths after they’ve already been born.
In other words, Democrats blocked a bill that would have prevented infanticide, for newborn babies whose only “crime” was surviving an attempt on their lives.
It does not – repeat, does not – get sicker or more depraved than this.
Now let’s see if mainstream media even bother to report it.
