  • Awful: Senate Dems Block Anti-Infanticide Bill

    02/05/2019 7:18:53 AM PST · by Kaslin · 60 replies ^ | February 5, 2019 | Leah Barkoukis
    Sen. Ben Sasse and his Republican colleagues did not receive the unanimous consent they were looking for on legislation that would’ve outlawed infanticide.  Democratic Washington Sen. Patty Murray blocked the “Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act,” presented by Sasse, that would’ve given infants who survived abortions medical care and protections under the law.“Frankly, this shouldn’t be hard,” he said.  In this country, all of us are created equal. If that equality means anything, surely it means that infanticide is wrong. Frankly, this shouldn’t be hard.— Senator Ben Sasse (@SenSasse) February 5, 2019 Murray argued the legislation is not necessary because...

    The Democratic Party seems to be willing to protect not just late term abortions, but actual killing of babies that survive the attempt on their lives.  Governor Ralph Northam’s cold-blooded explanation of allowing parents and doctors to discuss whether or not to finish off the victim, as part of the bill sponsored by Democrat Kathy Tran, shocked most people who heard about it – those who don’t rely on the mainstream media. Yesterday, Republican Senator Ben Sasse introduced a bill, the Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act (S. 130), that would require the provision of medical services to babies born...
  • Rep. Nadler: Bill That Requires Bringing Abortion-Surviving Babies to Hospital ‘May Kill Children’

    Speaking on the House floor Friday in opposition to the Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act (H.R. 3504), Rep. Jerrold Nadler (D-N.Y.) said the requirement that a baby who survives an abortion be taken to the hospital “may kill children.” “It may be that the baby is too frail to transport, but along comes this bill and says, we don’t care about the real situation that doctor faces with that infant. We know how to practice medicine in every situation—we in Congress. So we’re going to say it must be brought to the hospital, even if that may kill the child....

    There is a category of individuals for whom the abortion issue is perhaps the most personal of all: those who have survived attempted abortions. Abortion Survivors Tweak Nation's Conscience The New American 21 January 2013 As the nation marks the 40th anniversary of the Roe v. Wade decision that struck down a Texas law — and by extension, all states’ laws — that had criminalized abortion, the debate continues between those who uphold the right to life of the unborn and those who assert that a woman’s right to “choose” must be paramount. Most of those who argue their...

    Twins -- one aborted, one survives! Sarah tells her story . . . "Twenty-nine years ago, my mother decided to have an abortion. At the time, she was pregnant with twins, but nobody knew this, not even her doctor. My tiny brother and I were both there growing in her womb, until that dreadful day. Before the abortion, we were both alive. Moments later, I was alone. It's frightening to think I was almost aborted when my mom had a D&C abortion. Somehow, miraculously, I survived! My twin brother wasn't so lucky. Andrew was aborted and we lost him forever....

I hear from a source that WKYC-TV in Cleveland has confirmed Obama is running an ad responding to the ad featuring Jessen. Says my source: ------------------------------- Obama’s campaign told the Associated Press they would only be running “low-profile radio ads and campaign mailings.” They deliberately misled the media to portray a false sense of low-key campaigning.

    Washington, DC -- A new pro-life group that features a late-term abortion survivor is running a national television advertisement against presidential candidate Barack Obama. The ad takes Obama to task for his votes against a bill to care for survivors of such abortions when he was in the Illinois legislature. The new group, is a joint effort between Gianna Jessen, who survived a saline abortion decades ago, and pro-life blogger Jill Stanek.

    The Audacity of Death By DANIEL ALLOTT June 5, 2008 According to Barack Obama, Gianna Jessen shouldn't exist. Miss Jessen is an exquisite example of what antiabortion advocates call a "survivor." Well into her third trimester of pregnancy, Gianna's biological mother was injected with a saline solution intended to induce a chemical abortion at a Los Angeles County abortion center. Eighteen hours later, and precious minutes before the abortionist's arrival, Gianna emerged. Premature and with severe injuries that resulted in cerebral palsy. But alive. Had the abortionist been present at her birth, Gianna would have been killed, perhaps by suffocation....

    Finley Crampton really shouldn't be here. Although his parents would have loved another child, they knew their baby could inherit a life-threatening kidney condition – and they couldn't take the risk. After all, their first son had died of the condition and the second was born with serious kidney damage. So when Finley's mother, Jodie Percival, became pregnant while on the Pill, she and her fiance Billy Crampton, 35, made the agonising decision to abort this child. 'Deciding to terminate at eight weeks was just utterly horrible but I couldn't cope with the anguish of losing another baby,' said Miss...

    Barack Obama is the most pro-abortion presidential candidate ever. He is so pro-abortion that he refused as an Illinois state senator to support legislation to protect babies who survived late-term abortions because he did not want to concede -- as he explained in a cold-blooded speech on the Illinois Senate floor -- that these babies, fully outside their mothers' wombs, with their hearts beating and lungs heaving, were in fact "persons." "Persons," of course, are guaranteed equal protection of the law under the 14th Amendment. In 2004, U.S. Senate-candidate Obama mischaracterized his opposition to this legislation. Now, as a presidential...

    ROME, February 6, 2008 ( - Doctors from four different Roman universities have issued a joint declaration affirming the duty of doctors to rescue and care for infants born alive after an abortion attempt, even against the wishes of the mother. The declaration, made by doctors at the obstetric clinics of La Sapienza, Tor Vergata, Campus Biomedico and Sacro Cuore, represent both the secular and religious sides of the Italian university system. The first two universities are public, and the second two are Catholic. "An extremely premature newborn must be treated like any other person in danger, and assisted adequately,"...

    A mother seeking damages from a health authority has claimed doctors breached a "warranty" by failing to abort one of her twins. Stacy Dow, 21, is claiming Ł250,000 compensation to cover the cost of raising the one child which survived the failed attempt to abort twins. A court heard doctors effectively give a warranty that the abortion, at Perth Royal Infirmary, would work. NHS Tayside denied liability in the case at Perth Sheriff Court. Miss Dow was told that she would be having an abortion and would no longer be pregnant, the court was told. 'Breach of contract' Her lawyer...

    Amelia Loveless tried to abort her twin babies in 1999. The procedure failed and she sued the hospital. Now she has been awarded $45,000 in damages by a Quebec court, after a Montreal hospital left her still pregnant. The woman underwent an abortion procedure at St. Luc's hospital in March 1999. She gave birth to the babies later that year. Quebec Superior Court Justice Rex Solomon ruled in the woman's favor, even though the hospital had made efforts to contact her. However, in order to claim the award she must turn over the children, now six years old, to be...

    Astonishingly, she has forgiven her mother for trying to kill her.Gianna Jessen grew up believing that she was born with cerebral palsy because she had been delivered prematurely in a particularly traumatic birth. That was the story told to her by her adoptive mother and it was not until she was 12 years old that she discovered the truth about what made her different from the other children at school. "I had an innate wondering," Miss Jessen says. "I wasn't satisfied for some reason, so I kept asking why I had this disability. "She tried to break it to...

    LONDON, November 28, 2005 ( - The weekend edition of the London Times carries a report that provides insight into what pro-lifers identify as the moral vacuity of media representation of abortion. In a story on “botched” abortions the Times reports on the latest British medical scandal: that some of the intended victims survive. A government agency has published a report titled, “Confidential Enquiry into Maternal and Child Health (CEMACH),” that shows, to the horror of the British medical establishment, that up to 50 babies survive abortion every year in Britain. The Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists, says the...
