Infanticidal Democrats Took Their Cues from Barack Obama

When it comes to the most significant moral issues of our time, no one should be surprised by immoral actions of modern liberals. You can be saddened, shocked, angry, disgusted, and the like, but you should not be surprised.  This is certainly true when it comes to the issue of even infanticide.
For decades, Democrats have dehumanized the unborn and argued against protecting the most innocent and helpless among us, even when they escaped death in their mothers' wombs.  In order to further their wicked sexual agenda, Democrats at the highest levels have taken some of the most radically gruesome views of life in the womb.  No less than Barack Obama took a position on children who survived abortion that can be described only as infanticide.
Obama, while a member of the Illinois state Senate, opposed multiple versions of an Illinois bill that mirrored the federal Born-Alive Infants Protection Act (BAIPA).  According to National Right to Life, BAIPA was essentially "a simple two-paragraph proposal – [that] established ... for all federal law purposes, any baby who was entirely expelled from his or her mother, and who showed any of the specified signs of life, was to be regarded as a legal person for however long he or she lived, and that this applied whether or not the birth was the result of an abortion or of spontaneous premature labor."
In 2000, the original BAIPA was passed by the U.S. House by a vote of 380 to 15.  This occurred in spite of opposition by the National Abortion and Reproductive Rights Action League (NARAL).  Even staunch pro-abortion leaders, such as Jerrold Nadler, ignored the NARAL position and supported BAIPA.  This version of BAIPA was later killed in the Senate by an objection to unanimous consent.
In 2001, the Illinois Legislature took up a bill patterned after the federal BAIPA.  Obama voted against this bill in committee.  On the floor of the Illinois Senate, he later gave the only speech against the bill, saying, "I mean, it – it would essentially bar abortions, because the equal protection clause does not allow somebody to kill a child, and if this is a child, then this would be an antiabortion statute."  Because, of course, we need the "equal protection clause" to tell us we shouldn't kill our children.
Obama finally, and "boldly," voted "present" on the bill, which had the same effect as voting "no."  The bill passed the Illinois Senate but died in a House committee.  The scene pretty much repeated itself in 2002, this time with Obama voting "no."
In 2002, a "neutrality clause" was added to the federal BAIPA.  This clause basically said that, as far as federal law was concerned, legal protection could not be conferred upon a human being prior to being "born alive."  This effectively protected Roe.  The bill unanimously passed both houses of Congress and was signed into law by President Bush in 2002.
Obama is on the record saying he would have supported the Illinois bill had it contained the neutrality clause.  In October of 2004, the Chicago Tribunereported, "Obama said that had he been in the U.S. Senate two years ago, he would have voted for the Born-Alive Infants Protection Act[.]"  However, in 2003, the exact language of the federal neutrality clause was added to the Illinois bill, making it virtually identical to the federal BAIPA.  In March of 2003, Obama chaired an Illinois Senate committee and led the Democrats on that committee to kill the amended bill.
In attempting to blunt the extremism of his abortion record, Obama stated time and again that the lack of a neutrality clause was all that was preventing him from supporting the Illinois bill.  When he was called out on the matter, Obama accused individuals and institutions of lying about his record.  His campaign later had to admit that his critics were correct about his voting record.
Obama's radical – evil – position on infants born alive was widely reported on in the pro-life media.  There was even audio of him making his case!  Obama's position was described as infanticide prior to his presidential re-election bid in 2012.  He not only won two presidential elections with such evil positions on life, but was so emboldened that once Obamacare became the law of the land, then President Obama instructed his Department of Health and Human Services to issue its notorious contraception and abortifacient mandate.
As David French noted at the time, "[t]his is who Barack Obama is.  There is no reason to be surprised by this.  He is not being pulled to extremes by his base – he is the one doing the pulling."  Obama pulled, and along came New York governor Mario Cuomo, Virginia governor Ralph Northam, and Rhode Island governor Gina Raimondo.  On infanticide, each of these Democrat governors has picked up where Obama left off.
It seems clear that what immoral Democrats in New York passed and what immoral democrats in Virginia and Rhode Island are proposing all violate the federal Born Alive Infants Protection Act.  However, as Operation Rescue points out:
Some have postulated that with New York's new abortion law, crimes committed by late-term abortionist and convicted murderer Kermit Gosnell will now be legal in New York.  He was convicted of first-degree murder on three counts of snipping the spinal cords of living newborns who survived abortions at his Philadelphia "House of Horrors" clinic.
That may well be the case.
The Federal Born Alive Infant Protection Act of 2002 mandates that babies born alive during abortions must be cared for as patients.  Unfortunately, that act has no enforcement clause, meaning there is no criminal or civil penalty for violating it.  Even Kermit Gosnell could not be charged with breaking that law.
The proposed Rhode Island bill, co-sponsored by state senator Gayle L. Goldin and Rep. Edith H. Ajello, would, as LifeNews notes, "strip away even minor, common-sense abortion regulations."  LifeNews continues:
The bill appears to allow restrictions for late-term abortions, but it adds a broad "health" exception for abortions after viability. The exception would allow women to abort unborn babies up to nine months of pregnancy for basically any "health" reason, including "age, economic, social and emotional factors," a definition given by the U.S. Supreme Court in the case Doe v. Bolton.
Ajello described protections for unborn babies as "insidiously restrictive, harmful and patriarchal reproductive laws." Her bill would even repeal the state partial-birth abortion ban and fetal homicide law, which provides justice to pregnant mothers whose unborn babies are killed by abusive partners, drunken drivers or others whose illegal actions cause the death of the unborn baby.
Do you remember our partial-birth abortion debate?  With 281 House votes (65%), including 63 Democrats, and 64 Senate votes, including 17 Democrats, and President Bush's signature, in 2003, the federal partial-birth abortion ban became law.  Twice Bill Clinton vetoed similar bills, and while a partial-birth abortion ban was finally being passed at the federal level, state senator Barack Obama was opposing the Illinois version.
When he arrived in the U.S. Senate, Obama denounced the U.S. Supreme Court's 5-4 decision to uphold the ban.  In the months prior to the 2008 U.S. presidential election, then-candidate Barack Obama said, "The first thing I'll do as president is sign the Freedom of Choice Act (FOCA)."  FOCA, as co-sponsor Barbara Boxer described it, "supersedes any law, regulation or local ordinance that impinges on a woman's right to choose."
 As Rich Lowry described FOCA in Politico:
The act would enshrine in federal law a right to abortion more far-reaching than in Roe v. Wade and eliminate basically all federal and state-level restrictions on abortion.  This isn't a point its supporters contest; it's one they brag about.  The National Organization for Women says it would "sweep away hundreds of anti-abortion laws [and] policies."
Look for the next Democrat nominee for POTUS to make a pledge similar to Obama's.  Whether Kamala Harris, Joe Biden, Bernie Sanders, Cory Booker, Andrew Cuomo, or another, it seems that all of the candidates seeking to replace Barack Obama at the head of the Democratic Party will continue his wicked war on the unborn.

“One of the most disgusting things to come out of the Obama administration was "Operation Fast and Furious," where members of the Department of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) allowed illegal gun sales to go through – commonly referred to as "gun walking" – in order to track buyers and sellers they believed were connected to the Mexican drug cartels. Nearly 2,000 firearms were sold and were eventually found throughout the United States and Mexico. Two of them were used to kill Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry.”   BETH BAUMANN

ABORTION KILLS…. the innocent!

America’s baby murdering factories…. Your tax dollars at work

“I Cut the Vocal Cord So The Baby Can't Scream.”

Dr. Leah Torres, an OB/GYN in Salt Lake City, Utah, said that when she performs certain abortions she cuts the vocal cord of the baby so "there's really no opportunity" for the child to scream. She also described herself as a "uterus ripper outer" because she performs hysterectomies.




Planned Parenthood executives and supporters were on Capitol Hill this week lobbying lawmakers to protect the millions of dollars the nation’s largest abortion provider gets from taxpayers every year and to announce nationwide “speak-outs” during the upcoming congressional recesses.

Arkansas Senate Passes Abortion Ban if Decision Is Left to States

The Arkansas Senate passed legislation Thursday that would ban abortions in the state in the event the states are once again permitted to decide whether to prohibit the procedure.

“It’s time for the United States to redress and correct what many believe is a grave injustice and a crime against humanity which is being perpetuated by the decisions of Roe v. Wade,” said state Sen. Jason Rapert, reported the Arkansas Democrat-Gazette.

Rapert sponsored Senate Bill 149 — the Human Life Protection Act — which would prohibit abortions in Arkansas in the event Roe v. Wade is reversed or the U.S. Constitution is amended to permit states to ban the procedure.
State senators approved the bill, 29-6, with 26 Republicans and three Democrats voting in favor. The measure now heads to the state House.
“New scientific advances have demonstrated since 1973 that life begins at the moment of conception and the child in a woman’s womb is a human being,” the bill states. “Scientific evidence and personal testimonies document the massive harm that abortion causes to women.”
The legislation goes on to say that prior to the Supreme Court’s decision in Roe v. Wade, “Arkansas had already enacted prohibitions on abortions.”
The state also passed the Heartbeat Protection Act in 2013 and additional pro-life legislation in 2015 and 2017 “that further shows the will of the Arkansas people to save the lives of unborn children,” the bill says and adds:
The State of Arkansas urgently pleads with the United States Supreme Court to do the right thing, as they did in one of their greatest cases, Brown v. Board of Education, which overturned a fifty-eight- year-old precedent of the United States, and reverse, cancel, overturn, and annul Roe v. WadeDoe v. Bolton, and Planned Parenthood v. Casey.
(b) It is the intent of this subchapter to ensure that abortion in Arkansas is abolished and protect the lives of unborn children.
If the conditions of the bill come to pass, abortion would be abolished in Arkansas, except to save a woman’s life from a “physical disorder, physical illness, or physical injury.”
The Associated Press reports that Louisiana, Mississippi, North Dakota, and South Dakota have already passed legislation that would put an abortion prohibition into action if Roe v. Wade is overturned.

According to the Gazette, following an intense debate in the state Senate, Rapert ended by observing that the late Norma McCorvey — who was known as “Jane Roe” in the landmark Supreme Court case — never actually had an abortion but placed her baby for adoption prior to the high court’s ruling. McCorvey later became a pro-life activist.
“Some people don’t know that Norma McCorvey never had an abortion. Ever,” Rapert said. “And here we are using her name and her story to continue a culture of death.”

Cheerleading Infanticide Might Just Be The Tipping Point For Democrats

The opinions expressed by columnists are their own and do not represent the views of
As a man, I feel very comfortable telling women that they can’t murder their babies.
I will never be impregnated, or carry a baby, nor give birth, and yet I am still going to demand that no one murder a child.
Yeah, I know a lot of liberals insist that because I identify as male, I can’t have an opinion on the subject of murdering babies, but I do have an opinion, and it is that we should not legalize the murder of babies. 
Call it “male privilege” if you wish, but I’m sticking with my firm “No killing babies” position.
I don’t think I’m alone on this. I don’t think it’s just my genitals driving this decision. I think a lot of other male identifying people, and female identifying people, and people who identify in other ways, all can’t get behind infanticide. We have come together in a beautiful and diverse coalition of people who oppose the legal extermination of children. And it’s a coalition that should worry the Democrat elite, since a lot of Democrat voters are not cool with laws that allow the offing of infants.
This is just the latest cultural assault we’ve been subjected too, and the most appalling (yet). Normal people of both parties have been getting progressively more woke to the indisputable fact that the left hates us and wants us dead or enslaved, but legalizing the murder of babies might be an atrocity too far.
Kavanaugh lynch mob? That taught us that every man is vulnerable to some shaky tale from three decades ago. That was bad.
Covington Fiasco? That taught us that our sons are fair game if they dare smile wrong when some fake Vietnam veteran who is not Dick Blumenthal bangs a drum in their faces – or whenever else the garbage media and the garbage left set their sights upon them for having political views that offend the perpetually offended. That was bad too.
But now it’s killing babies. Like, actual babies. Not even fetuses. Babies. Like, one minute away from breathing and crying. Or even after birth, according to (as of this writing) Virginia Governor and cringy racial humor aficionado Ralph (“Racist Nickname Omitted”) Northam. Note that Bill Kristol, the Fredocon Elvis, contributed to abortionboy’s campaign contribution because Trump sends mean tweets and because killing babies is apparently True Conservatism™. At this writing, it is unclear if the Northam yearbook picture of the male in blackface and the male in the KKK get-up are Northam and Kristol.
In any case, the Democrats got my attention when they recently pivoted from **mumble mumble women’s healthcare mumble mumble** to SHOUTING THEIR ABORTIONS, and then took the next step of giving the thumbs up to butchering an eight-month, 29-day old kid just minding his business waiting to exit the uterus. I think it got a lot of people’s attention.
Look, abortion was not my big issue. I was against it, but it was not a subject I liked to talk about, and many fellow conservatives seemed to feel the same way. A couple decades ago, before I got married, I found it distasteful but I really did not care much about whether it was legal or not. I actively managed my own fertility and I just didn’t see it as applying to me. But it never occurred to me that the abortion nuts meant killing full-grown babies.
But they meant killing full grown babies all right. You heard them correctly the first time – not later when all the lies and distractions cranked up to cover up what they really want for the benefit of the squares. Their position is that a baby can be killed anytime before it is born for any reason. Not just deformed or sick ones, and not just when mothers are in the essentially mythical danger of dying if that baby isn’t aborted stat. Anytime, for any reason. 
Oh yeah, later ones require a “health care provider” sign off that it’s for the health of the mother, **wink wink**. Does anyone think the aspiring Doc Gosnells out there are going to do anything but rubber stamp the death warrants? Hell, that’s what the Democrats want, a fig leaf to cover the grisly reality of what they want. And that reality makes most of the nominally pro-choice people queasy.
Ask them. Ask them “Okay, a pregnancy is nine months long. At what specific date should we outlaw abortion. One month? Two months? Five months?
Their honest answer is “Nine months, and even after,” but they won’t answer you honestly. You’ll get a word soup of “woman’s choice” and “her doctor” and “reproductive healthcare” but you will never get a date – except from the ones too crazy to try to hide it, or the ones like that Virginia delegate who was too stupid to understand that she shouldn’t actually say it or the Normals will freak out.
Matt Vespa
Well, I’m freaking out, because she’s yapping about murdering babies, and a lot of other people are freaking out too. I’ve talked to a significant number of people who were probably nominally pro-life and who saw what the Democrats were doing in New York and Rhode Island and Virginia and were shell-shocked. But these people all agreed on one point that any civilized society would find unnecessary to debate.
You can’t kill babies.
There are a lot of people out there who aren’t hardcore pro-life. They are against abortion, but they see it as a difficult issue and will not invest the majority of their political capital in it. And there are others who are pro-choice, but squishy. These are the safe, legal and rare” people Bill Clinton was talking to. First trimester, okay. Regrettable, but they can live with it. 
But this insanity? They tried to thread the needle on a distasteful issue. They did not sign up for a death cult.
Let’s spend the next two years figuratively hanging the dismembered bodies of however many babies are chopped up under Andrew Cuomo’s law around the necks of the swing district Dems who just got elected promising they would not be the looney kind of Democrats. Let’s make them make a choice – support unrestricted infanticide like the leaders of your disgusting party, or oppose killing babies.
I show what this kind social justice warrior lunacy would look like in America if these psychopaths ever got power in my latest novel, Wildfire, and in my earlier installments People’s Republic and Indian Country. The good guys win in mine, and we damn well better make sure we win in reality too.

Exclusive — House GOP Plans Sustained Effort to Expose Leftist Democrats on Abortion

House Republicans are gearing up for a sustained push to expose leftist Democrats in the House Democrat majority on their increasingly extreme views on abortion, Breitbart News has learned exclusively.

Specifically, Republicans–as they have demonstrated for three consecutive legislative days–intend to push for a floor vote against Democrat Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s wishes on a piece of legislation from Rep. Ann Wagner (R-MO) that would ensure babies who are born alive following an abortion attempt are given the same medical treatment and care any other newborn baby would receive.
“Protecting innocent life shouldn’t be a partisan issue and it shouldn’t be difficult. Infanticide is barbaric and the growing trend of Democrats advocating it is frightening,” House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, a California Republican, told Breitbart News. “Republicans are united in seeing that a bill protecting babies who survived an attempted abortion urgently receives a vote on the House Floor. It already passed the House with Democratic support last Congress. But so far the new Democrat majority refuse to even consider the bill. But we will ask again. And again. And again, until this body speaks up for life.”
The House Minority Whip, Steve Scalise, a Louisiana Republican, added in an emailed statement to Breitbart News that the Democrats’ extremism has been exposed and will continue to be shown to the public by the GOP’s sustained effort. Scalise said:
It’s absolutely barbaric that in this country it would be allowed to kill a baby after it’s born alive during an abortion, but that’s exactly what some elected Democrat leaders have advocated in recent weeks. Yesterday, the moral indifference of the House Democrat majority was on full display when they refused my motion to even give the Born Alive Survivors Protection Act a vote on the House Floor. Every American deserves to know if their representative stands against infanticide or not, and that’s why this week I began the discharge petition process that would force a vote on our bill. Now Democrats will have to make a choice: stand with the most radical elements of their base, or with the vast majority of Americans who are appalled at the murder of innocent life.
Rep. Liz Cheney (R-WY), the chairwoman of the House Republican Conference, added in an emailed statement to Breitbart News that Republicans are fighting “pure evil” on the part of those who would kill babies after being born.
Cheney told Breitbart News:
This is about killing babies after they are born and it is the face of pure evil. We’ve seen the leadership of the Democrat Party on the Hill remain silent while elected leaders, including the Governor of Virginia, describe in very cold, clinical terms how he would facilitate the murder of a baby that has already been born. I want to say personally, as a mother of five kids, the idea that we have to describe what the Democrats are doing, is really horrific. I want to ask mothers across this country to join with us to make sure that we don’t see our maternity wards turn into killing fields, which is what the Democrats would do if we don’t stop this. House Republicans are absolutely dedicated to stopping this, and dedicated to protecting the most vulnerable among us, which is the unborn. The notion that we’re having the debate about whether or not you should be able to kill babies is absolutely horrific and evil, and we will stand up against that.
Earlier this week, at a press conference, McCarthy and GOP leaders rolled out their push on the anti-infanticide bill from Wagner, recommitting their efforts to it. Last Congress, the bill was pushed in the House of Representatives by then-Congresswoman and now Sen. Marsha Blackburn (R-TN), and it passed with bipartisan support. Six Democrats crossed the aisle to join all the Republicans in the then-GOP-led-majority in January 2018 to pass the Born Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act. The bill did not make it in the Senate.
Now, with Democrats in control of the House of Representatives after the midterm elections, and with states like New York and Virginia among others pushing boundaries on abortion to extremes, the Republicans in Congress is rolling out a long-term push to force the Democrats to hold a vote on the bill. Wagner, the Congresswoman from Missouri who has taken up the Blackburn bill mantle in the House, told Breitbart News that she is “proud” to push for a vote on this critical legislation protecting babies who are born alive surviving abortions.
“I was proud to introduce the Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act and help lead the discharge petition process to force a vote on this critical piece of legislation,” Wagner told Breitbart News. “Babies born alive deserve our protection and the proper medical care that any newborn would receive. I called for unanimous consent on the House Floor to bring this commonsense legislation up for a vote so we can protect these babies, but we were denied that vote.  My colleagues and I will keep fighting for the precious life of these babies and we will keep calling for this vote so born-alive babies can receive lifesaving medical care when they are at their most vulnerable.”
The Born Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act, among other things, requires by law that healthcare professionals present at a live birth use their skills to preserve the life and health of a child at the same degree of care that would be offered to any child born prematurely at the same gestational age–and that after these efforts conclude, those healthcare professionals are legally responsible for the transportation and admission to a hospital. It also requires health officials to report any violations to law enforcement and penalizes intentional killing of born-alive children with various fines and up to five years in prison.
Leadership officials in the House GOP conference told Breitbart News that until the Democrats schedule a floor vote on this, on every legislative day when the House is in session, a different House Republican will go to the floor and ask for unanimous consent to have a vote on the bill.
Democrats have already blocked Republicans’ efforts three times. McCarthy tried on Wednesday, Scalise tried on Thursday, and Wagner tried on Friday. Cheney is expected to go to the floor next week, and many other members will get in the fight. There will be a different member each day pushing for unanimous consent on Wagner’s bill until Pelosi’s Democrat leadership team, which remains steadfastly in favor of not protecting babies born alive, cracks and allows a vote.
“This will force Speaker Pelosi and the House Democrat Majority to either go on record in blocking that request, or immediately proceed to passage of this important legislation,” a GOP leadership aide told Breitbart News.
Republicans say they will not be deterred and are ready for the long haul if necessary, because they believe that when the House votes on this bill protecting babies, many Democrats will be forced to–as six of them did in early 2018 when the Blackburn version of the bill passed the House on a bipartisan vote under Republican control–vote against their party leadership’s increasingly more extreme position on abortion.
Republicans are ready to take this request for unanimous consent on this bill to the floor, leadership aides say, every day that the House is in session for months and months–even more than a hundred days–if necessary.
The effort began on Wednesday, the day after President Donald Trump’s State of the Union addres in the very same chamber, where the president asked Congress to pass legislation protecting the most innocent lives–newborn babies and the unborn. Trump also criticized recent developments in New York, which made late-term abortions legal, and in Virginia, where the Democrat Governor Ralph Northam has come under serious fire for comments supporting abortion of a child during the birth of that child.
President Trump said:
Lawmakers in New York cheered with delight upon the passage of legislation that would allow a baby to be ripped from the mother’s womb moments from birth. These are living, feeling, beautiful babies who will never get the chance to share their love and their dreams with the world. And then, we had the case of the Governor of Virginia where he stated he would execute a baby after birth. To defend the dignity of every person, I am asking Congress to pass legislation to prohibit the late-term abortion of children who can feel pain in the mother’s womb. Let us work together to build a culture that cherishes innocent life. And let us reaffirm a fundamental truth: All children — born and unborn — are made in the holy image of God.
On Wednesday afternoon, after Wagner reintroduced the bill Wednesday morning and leadership touted it at a press conference, McCarthy went to the floor to push for a vote via unanimous consent. Pelosi’s designate in the Speaker’s chair that day, Rep. Debbie Mucarsel-Powell (D-FL), blocked the bill, saying Pelosi’s leadership team had not agreed to it.
Here’s video of the exchange between McCarthy and Pelosi’s designate:
Then, the next day, Scalise went to the floor and tried again. Pelosi’s designate, a different Democrat this time, blocked the GOP:
And Wagner tried again on Friday:
As each of these battles happens, McCarthy’s team and the rest of the GOP leadership are blasting out press releases to the national media highlighting the Democrat opposition to protecting babies from being killed during or after being born. Republicans also intend to push the message hard on social media, ripping Democrats for supporting what amounts to murder of babies already born:

Today, I will ask for a vote on @RepAnnWagner's Born-Alive Protection Act, which would outlaw and penalize infanticide in the United States. If Democrats object, we will ask again. And again. And again, until the House of Representatives speaks up for life.

Today, I will ask for a vote on @RepAnnWagner's Born-Alive Protection Act, which would outlaw and penalize infanticide in the United States. If Democrats object, we will ask again. And again. And again, until the House of Representatives speaks up for life.
Democrats just rejected mandatory medical care for every baby born. They’ll have an opportunity to do the right thing tomorrow when Republicans ask for a vote again.

According to a report in the Washington Post on Thursday, the GOP clearly views this as a winning issue politically–as it hands the Republicans the moral high ground on abortion, as the extremely radical view of killing a baby after he or she has been born–not when a baby is still in the womb–is so out there most of the country is aligned against it, even supporters of abortion.
Scalise is quoted in that Post story as saying the New York and Virginia developments on the life issue seem to have “woke a sleeping giant”– the movement of people across the country disgusted, outraged, and driven to action to protect human life from Democrats who could care less about it or would go so far as to pass laws stretching abortion to radical extremes.
The Northam comments hit America hard. He was making the case in favor of Virginia statehouse Delegate Kathy Tran’s bill that would allow abortion when a woman is going into labor–meaning as a baby is being born–and took it much, much further.
Northam, a Democrat, said in a radio interview with WTOP, adding:
This is why decisions such as this should be made by providers, physicians, and the mothers and fathers that are involved. When we talk about third-trimester abortions, these are done with the consent of obviously the mother, with the consent of the physician—more than one physician, by the way—and it’s done in cases where there may be severe deformities. There may be a fetus that’s non-viable.
Northam, who was a doctor before he got into politics, then said that the child would be “kept comfortable” while doctors and parents made a decision whether or not to kill him or her. Northam said:
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. We want the government not to be involved in these types of decisions.
Northam’s comments reportedly so outraged his medical colleagues that they leaked to the media photographs from his yearbook page in medical school that show two men in racially offensive garb–one in blackface, the other in a Ku Klux Klan outfit. Northan originally admitted one of the men was him but would not specify which, then walked back his admission and is now denying either of the men are him and refuses to resign despite nearly all of the Democrat Party nationally pushing for his resignation.
The scandal has rocked the Democrat Party nationally and reverberated heavily throughout Virginia, as not just Northam but both his presumed successors–next in line Democrat Lt. Gov. Justin Fairfax and the number three in line to the governor’s mansion, Democrat Attorney General Mark Herring–have been consumed by scandals of their own.
Fairfax has been hit with a pair of sexual assault allegations, including one woman who accused him of raping her. He denies the allegations despite calls from national Democrats for him to resign as well. Herring has admitted he too donned blackface in his college days. Herring had previously called on Northam to resign over Northam’s admission at a press conference that he wore blackface at a different time than the photo that appeared in his yearbook.
Republicans’ renewed focus on abortion in the wake of both the New York and Virginia developments–among others nationwide–has widespread public support. Recent polling shows that the public wants restrictions on abortion, and wants Roe v. Wade reinterpreted so as to allow for restrictions:

A new KofC/Marist poll on American attitudes toward abortion finds that overwhelming majorities support substantial restrictions on abortion, and would like to see Roe v. Wade reinterpreted to allow restrictions. 

What’s more, Democrats who have embraced radical and extreme late-term abortion policy views in recent weeks–not just Northam–have come under fire. New York’s Gov. Andrew Cuomo, another Democrat who is reportedly considering running for president in 2020, wrote an op-ed in  the New York Times defending his state’s radical new law by saying: “I am a former altar boy.”
“My Roman Catholic values are my personal values. The decisions I choose to make in my life, or in counseling my daughters, are based on my personal moral and religious beliefs,” Cuomo wrote, backing the law by saying his oath is not to his personal beliefs but to the law and the Constitution.

Senate Democrats Block Bill to Protect Babies Surviving Abortion

Senate Democrats – led by Washington Sen. Patty Murray – blocked a bill that would require babies born alive during abortion to receive reasonable medical care and transport to a hospital.

Nebraska Republican Sen. Ben Sasse introduced the Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act (S. 130) to protect babies who have survived failed abortions. Sasse went to the floor of the Senate Monday to ask his colleagues to pass the bill by unanimous consent, but Democrats objected.

Referencing the recent firestorm created by the Virginia bill known as the Repeal Act, introduced by Democrat Delegate Kathy Tran and supported by Democrat Gov. Ralph Northam, Sasse said:
This place fancies itself the world’s greatest deliberative body, but we would be deceiving ourselves if we ignored the biggest debate that’s been happening in America over the last 36 hours. A public elected official — the Governor of one of the 50 states — has been defending a practice that is morally repugnant. The Governor of Virginia has been defending a practice that is repugnant to civilized people across the entire world.
“Senate Democrats had the chance today to prove they are not the party of infanticide, and instead they doubled down on extremism,” said Susan B. Anthony List (SBA List) President Marjorie Dannenfelser after Democrats blocked the bill. “The Democratic Party’s agenda of abortion on demand through birth and even beyond is radically out of step with the standards of decency the overwhelming majority of Americans expect from their leaders.”
“We urge the Senate to bring the bill to the floor for a recorded vote so Americans can know where each senator stands, and we urge its passage,” Dannenfelser added. “It’s time to get this bill swiftly to the President’s desk for his signature.”

.@SenJoniErnst: “This assault on human dignity cannot stand.”
.@HawleyMO: “It’s hard to imagine this legislation is even necessary in America in the 21st century.”

The Born-Alive Act states that Congress acknowledges an “infant” born alive during a failed abortion “is a legal person for all purposes under the laws of the United States, and entitled to all the protections of such laws.”
“Any infant born alive after an abortion or within a hospital, clinic, or other facility has the same claim to the protection of the law that would arise for any newborn, or for any person who comes to a hospital, clinic, or other facility for screening and treatment or otherwise becomes a patient within its care,” the legislation continues.
Under the bill, health care providers who fail to provide medical care to an infant born alive after abortion can be fined or imprisoned for up to five years, or both.
According to the Born-Alive Act, the intentional killing of an infant born alive after abortion “shall be punished as … intentionally killing or attempting to kill a human being.”
Jill Stanek, a former nurse who witnessed late-term babies born alive during abortion procedures and left to die, said, “It is appalling to watch Democrat senators argue against this compassionate bill.”
“Pleading ignorance is not an option especially in the wake of efforts in New York and Virginia to legalize infanticide,” she said. “Everyone should be able to agree on equal protection under the law for these children.”
Just prior to the controversy over the Virginia bill – which would allow abortion even moments before birth – New York Democrat Gov. Andrew Cuomo signed a bill into law that denies “personhood” to unborn babies. Under the law, violence against an unborn child during a homicide is no longer criminally punishable.
Now, Democrats in Rhode Island and Vermont have also proposed bills that would strip most restrictions on abortion and declare the procedure a “fundamental right.”

Tom McClusky, president of March for Life Action, said that in Sasse’s appeal for unanimous consent for the Born-Alive Act, Murray, representing Senate Democrats, “chose to stand up in favor of infanticide and the abortion lobby.”
“This pro-death mentality is the same one that has recently moved some lawmakers to propose extremely permissive late term abortion bills in states like New York and Virginia,” he said.
A recent Marist poll found 75 percent of Americans want substantial restrictions on abortion, including 60 percent of Democrats and 61 percent of those who identify as “pro-choice.”
“We call on Senate Majority Leader McConnell to bring the Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act to a floor vote so that constituents know exactly where their elected officials stand on protecting the fundamental right to life,” McClusky added.
