I am a natural skeptic. It doesn’t matter which side of the political spectrum you fall on. When I heard about H.R.26 – Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act, I looked it up. Here is a link to the bill on the Congressional website. It is a short read and bars mothers from prosecution. A direct quote is below. If you are a Democrat please read this bill and tell me what you object to.
The bill bars the criminal prosecution of a mother of a child born alive under this bill and allows her to bring a civil action against a health care practitioner or other employee for violations.
“Born alive during an abortion” refers to a scenario in which an infant is born alive during an attempted abortion procedure. This is considered a rare occurrence, but it is possible for a baby to survive an abortion attempt if certain conditions are met, such as if the abortion is attempted later in the pregnancy when the baby is more developed. The laws regarding what should happen in these cases vary by jurisdiction. In general, if an infant is born alive during an abortion, the healthcare provider is obligated to provide medical care and treatment to the infant.
Setting aside a moral objection to abortion, for rational human beings the above seems like a moral and logical step. Well, not for your Democrat Congressmen save one Henry Cuellar. In an attempt to make what is generally accepted, a national policy was rejected by ALL Democrat Congressmen except good old Henry Cuellar.
Partial birth abortion is a term used to describe a specific type of late-term abortion procedure. In this procedure, a baby is partially delivered before the abortion is performed, usually by collapsing the skull. The procedure is also called dilation and extraction (D&X). The procedure is considered controversial, and it is illegal in most countries. Killing or neglecting a child until it dies that is born alive is worse than partial-birth abortion. Yep, that is your modern-day Democrat Party.
H.R.26 did pass the House because all Republicans voted for it along with 1 Democrat and 1 other Democrat voting “Present” meaning they did not want to go on the record one way or the other. In other words, a cop-out. Of course, none of this will ever pass the Senate or be signed by Biden. If someone can articulate a reason for child neglect and murder let me know. It is hardly surprising since it seems to me most Democrat policies lead to death and suffering. If you support these policies you better pray there is no God.
