A top news story just came out in the Washington Free Beacon entitled Senate Democrats Defeat Bid to Protect Abortion Survivors. And then it was cited by Koening’s World Watch Daily as Evil: Senate Democrats Defeat Bid to Protect Abortion Survivors. Here is their version:
Senate Democrats defeated legislation Wednesday that would have protected infants who survive abortions.
The Born Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act failed because nearly every Senate Democrat voted against the measure, which requires doctors to provide medical care for newborns who survive abortion attempts. The act received 52 votes, falling 8 short of the 60-vote threshold necessary to break the filibuster. Democratic senators Joe Manchin (W. Va.) and Bob Casey (Pa.) crossed the aisle to vote for the legislation.
Sen. Ben Sasse (R., Neb.), who introduced the legislation, decried the partisan vote. “This legislation isn’t red vs. blue, it is simply about giving every baby a fighting chance. Every baby deserves care. This isn’t about abortion, it’s about human rights,” he said.
I have heard testimonies of full-grown, very successful people who were aborted survivors. But it seems now that these democrats will remove all chances of any more survivors. Why? Because people don’t want to be inconvenienced? Because they say it’s the best thing for the mother? There is no good reason; they are just letting evil run its course. They don’t want any evidence of a failed abortion, or evidence of a life that they tried to abort, because that life would be a living testimony of a sinful attempt and something that would forever cause them guilt (they would be a living reminder of their sin).
Well, in this vote we have a revelation before us of how evil these democrats are by voting and defeating this legislation. For many things we would have to wait until the judgment day for evil to be revealed, but here it is already revealed. They stand before you in the senate. Fifty-two Democrat senators revealed to us that they wish an aborted survivor will not be cared for when born. They say that they wish that infant who just barely survived an abortion would now die for lack of care! If that is not evil, I don’t know what is.
Joe Manchin did not vote against the legislation, which is another reason why he might decide to be a republican.
