Reaffirming their total allegiance to Moloch, the Democrats in the Senate are pulling out all the stops to prevent the passage of a bill that would require doctors to care for all children born alive:
“Senate Democrats on Monday blocked a Republican bill that would have threatened prison for doctors who don’t try saving the life of infants born alive during abortions.”
Rather than explaining in clear terms why they believe infanticide is okay, the Democrats instead brought up irrelevant facts about how such situations are unlikely and are extremely “personal” for the women involved.
“Opponents, noting the rarity of such births and citing laws already making it a crime to kill newborn babies, said the bill was unnecessary. They said it is part of a push by abortion opponents to curb access to the procedure and intimidate doctors who perform it, and said late-term abortions generally occur when the infant is considered incapable of surviving after birth.
Sen. Patty Murray, D-Wash., a leading Democrat on health issues, said the measure would force women to accept ‘care that may directly conflict with your wishes at a deeply personal, often incredibly painful moment in your life — because politicians in Washington decided their beliefs mattered more than yours.'”
One would hope that murder is always a relatively unlikely occurrence, although that certainly does not mean that laws punishing murder are unnecessary. One would also assume that being murdered would be quite “personal” and “painful” for the child involved, perhaps even more so than for the mother committing the murder.
The slippery slope of immorality is very real. Be prepared for ever more brazen support for infanticide from “progressives” in the coming years.
