After Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam showed his apparent approval for infanticide and other states began to give serious consideration to legislation that would allow killing babies at birth, Sen. Ben Sasse (R-Neb.) followed up with the Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act.
His bill would require immediate transportation and admission to a hospital for any child born alive after surviving an attempted abortion and would create penalties for intentionally killing infants born alive.
Said Sasse, prior to requesting “unanimous consent” to expedite the bill’s consideration, “One hundred United States senators are going to have an opportunity to unanimously say the most basic thing imaginable. And that is that it’s wrong to kill a little newborn baby.”
Senate Democrats blocked the bill Monday night and Sasse got a bit of a tongue lashing from Washington State’s Patty Murray, who said, “We have laws against infanticide in this country. This is a gross misinterpretation of the actual language of the bill that is being asked to be considered and therefore I object.”
Yet, no matter how much Democrats might disdain the use of the term “infanticide,” extreme killing and a callous view of life are what they support.
