All in favor of killing babies who survive abortion procedures, raise your hands.
According to the roll call vote in the U.S. Senate Monday, Michael Bennet sided with infanticide, along with 43 other Democrats who helped defeat the Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act.
The bill required a supermajority to pass, and failed on a 53-44 vote — only three Democrats crossed party lines to support the bill.
Republicans including U.S. Sen. Cory Gardner voted in favor of the bill that requires doctors to provide the same medical care to infants born alive during an abortion procedure, as they would if the child was born alive during any other medical procedure.
The bill was authored in response to the controversy surrounding Virginia Governor Ralph Northam.
No, not the racist pictures discovered in the Democrat’s school yearbook, the original scandal that faded a hot minute after the 30-year old picture was mysteriously made public.
The legislation was introduced after Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam, a Democrat, endorsed post-birth abortions while discussing The Repeal Act, a state bill which sought to repeal restrictions on third-trimester abortions.
Here’s what Northam said:
“So, in this particular example, if a mother is in labor, I can tell you exactly what would happen. The infant would be delivered. The infant would be kept comfortable. The infant would be resuscitated if that’s what the mother and the family desired, and then a discussion would ensue between the physicians and the mother. So, I think this was really blown out of proportion.”
You’re up to speed, PeakNation™. The media may have forgotten what the fuss was really about in Virginia, but Republicans didn’t. And despite their best effort to block such atrocities, Democrats including Bennet are still siding with Northam’s comments.
