Congressional Democrats have blocked the Born Alive Act 34 times so far (32 times in the House and twice in the Senate). This bill would require medical care for babies who survive late-term abortions and are born alive. Instead of allowing these babies to die on the table — cold, hungry, and crying — doctors would be required to send them to a hospital or face criminal charges. Democrats, in order to deflect from the fact they are going on record in favor of infanticide, are claiming that such a law is unnecessary. I beg to differ.
According to the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), between 2003 and 2014 at least 143 babies died after being born alive during botched abortions – and the CDC states this could be an underestimation. In 2018, 16 infants in Florida alone were born alive after surviving abortion attempts.
Washington, D.C. abortionist Cesare Santangelo told undercover investigators with Live Action that he would make sure babies “do not survive” if they were born alive at his facility. A New York abortion worker told Live Action investigator to “flush” the baby down the toilet or “put it in a bag” if she’s born alive. In Arizona, an abortion worker told Live Action there “may be movement” after the baby is outside of the mother and that they would refuse to provide help and instead let her die. Dr. DeShawn Taylor, former medical director for Planned Parenthood, told a Center for Medical Progress investigator that identifying “signs of life” after a baby survives an abortion is contingent upon “who’s in the room.”
According to the Abortion Survivors Network, there could be as many as 44,000 survivors of late-term abortion in the United States alone. You can read some of their stories on their website. Democrats and supporters of Planned Parenthood like to deny their existence, despite their documented medical histories.
Abortion advocates can no longer claim that abortion is healthcare or that it’s necessary in order to give a woman her bodily autonomy. They should call it what it is — ensuring the death of an unwanted child. It’s infanticide and it’s disgusting. Our country has reached a whole new level of corruption, thanks to the Democrats and their blood money (campaign contributions from the abortion industry). The Democrats are digging their own grave for the 2020 presidential election, as the overwhelming majority of Americans do not approve late-term abortions, yet alone murdering a born alive baby or leaving her to die. Democrats are proving just how far they are willing to go in order to end unwanted children’s lives, in the name of women’s rights.
