  • Media Labels ‘Born Alive’ Senate Bill As ‘Abortion Restriction’

    In CNN’s coverage of Tuesday’s vote in the U.S. Senate on the “Born Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act,” the network described the legislation as an “abortion restriction,” blatantly lying about bill, which does not restrict abortion at all. The “Born Alive” bill, which failed to pass 56-41, would have required medical providers to “exercise the proper degree of care in the case of a child who survives an abortion or attempted abortion.” Sen. Joni Ernst, R-Iowa, told The Federalist the bill itself “does not address abortion, the rights or wrongs of it. What it does do is make sure that...
  • CNN isn't even the first newsroom to refer to a newborn baby as ‘a fetus that was born'

    CNN caught heat from conservatives Tuesday for publishing a report that refers euphemistically to a newborn baby as a “fetus that was born.” As it turns out, though, CNN is not even close to being the first newsroom to deploy this nonsensical term to refer to newly born infants. There is a long history of newsrooms deploying this dystopian gobbledygook in service of promoting the pro-choice line, which depends on denying the humanity of both unborn and newborn children. The Associated Press reported in 1999 that Wisconsin officials argued in court that a man should be prosecuted for attempted murder...

    On the Senate floor this afternoon, Senator Ben Sasse (R., Neb.) set the record straight about his legislation, the Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act, which the Senate will vote on later today. Before Sasse spoke, Democratic senator Dick Durbin (D., Ill.) came to the floor to propose a Medicaid expansion supported by Democrats, insisting that Republicans were pushing “anti-abortion” legislation while refusing to accept any measures that would help women in need. Sasse, the lead sponsor of the born-alive bill — which does not limit abortion access but rather requires doctors to provide standard medical care to newborn infants who...

    Why should one baby down the hall be given care while another is left to die? Sen. Joni Ernst asked the Senate Judiciary Committee. Not one Democrat in the room could answer the question. The Born-Alive Survivors Protection Act is not about restricting abortions but about giving newborns a chance to survive no matter where they are born, said Sen. Ben Sasse, the bill’s lead co-sponsor, at a Senate Judiciary Committee hearing Tuesday.During the hearing, called “The Infant Patient: Ensuring Appropriate Medical Care for Children Born Alive,” Republican senators questioned why a baby born in a hospital should be treated...

    West Virginia lawmakers began the new year Thursday by advancing a bill to protect babies who survive abortions from infanticide. The West Virginia House Health and Human Resources Committee approved the Born Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act, or House Bill 4007, in a voice vote, WV Public Broadcasting reports. Democrat Del. Danielle Walker opposed the bill. The legislation would require abortionists to provide reasonable medical care to a baby who survives an abortion. It requires physicians to “exercise the same degree of reasonable medical judgment to preserve the life and health of the child as a physician would render to...

    CHARLESTON, W.Va. (WVVA) A nationwide debate over abortion rights is making its way to West Virginia. In the next legislative session, lawmakers plan to introduce a 'born-alive' bill. The legislation would essentially protect the life of a child born during an abortion. Del. Jeff Pack, (R) Raleigh County, is a co-sponsor of the legislation which would require that the babies receive the same care as any other child delivered during the same gestational age. "I think our humanity requires that we recognize that a living, breathing person outside the womb at the very least is a human being and deserves...

    FULL TITLE: 77% of Americans Want to Protect Babies Who Survive Abortions, Nancy Pelosi Has Blocked a Vote 80 Times Today, pro-life Republican leaders in the U.S. House of Representatives will hold a hearing on the Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act, legislation to protect some of the most vulnerable of all Americans — babies who survive abortions. This year, states like New York and Illinois have pushed a radical expansion of abortion on demand through birth, even going so far as to repeal state laws banning gruesome partial-birth abortions and strip away existing protections for babies born alive. In Virginia,...

    At least 40 babies were born alive after botched abortions across three states since 2016, according to state health data that offers a glimpse into the extent of an issue that lawmakers have fiercely debated in recent months. The data on babies surviving abortions is compiled on a mandatory basis by only a handful of states. What is available reflects a scenario that is rare but frequent enough to prompt proposals at the state and federal level for born-alive infant protection laws – especially in the wake of Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam’s controversial comments on the subject earlier this year....
  • Three Babies in Minnesota Were Born Alive After Failed Abortions in 2018 and Left to Die

    Three babies survived botched abortions but later died in 2018 in Minnesota, according to a new state Department of Health report. The news comes as Democrats in Congress block a federal bill to require that basic medical care be provided to newborns who survive abortions. Democrats have argued that legislation to protect abortion survivors is a waste of time and not necessary. But data from Minnesota, the Centers for Disease Control and other sources indicate that babies do survive abortions, and laws are needed to protect them. Minnesota has been keeping track of abortion survivors since 2015 when pro-lifers passed...

    A bill that creates penalties for doctors and practitioners who don’t treat infants who survive an attempted abortion has passed the Texas Senate. SB 23 passed the Republican-controlled Senate on Tuesday with a vote of 21-10, meaning two Democrat votes for it. It will now head to the Texas House. The bill is similar to a measure that recently came before the U.S. Senate, where it failed. Under the bill, doctors would face a fine and up to 10 years in prison. Opponents argue attempted abortion births are rare and measures to protect newborns are already in place. “Republican extremists...

    Kaya Jones, a former member of the Pussycat Dolls, claimed in a March 1 tweet that “every single Democrat that voted against the born alive bill received money from Planned Parenthood.” Verdict: True Of the 44 senators who voted against ending debate and proceeding to a vote on the Born Alive bill, 42 were Democrats – all of whom received funding from Planned Parenthood during their latest election cycle. Fact Check: The Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act was introduced to the Senate on Jan. 31 by Republican Sen. Ben Sasse. The legislation came after a Virginia delegate faced backlash for...

    March 14, 2019 (Family Research Council) — What do cats have that newborn babies don't? Democrats' support. In one of the sickest ironies no one is talking about, Senate liberals picked this moment — 17 days after they voted to kill America's perfectly healthy infants — to fight for the humane treatment of kittens. Maybe the DNC's strategists are out to lunch, or maybe the Left really is this shameless, but I can't wait to see some of these politicians standing on debate platforms next year telling the American people that when it comes to protecting living things: We chose...

    So I was going to have a little fun at the expense of CNN this morning, contrasting the news site’s headline for the Democrats' gun restriction bill--"House to vote on guns background check bill with bipartisan support" --which has garnered exactly four Republican co-sponsors, with its headline for the Sen. Ben Sasse's anti-infanticide bill, which I was certain would be solely about the "GOP" despite having four Democrat Senators voting to move the bill forward. Turns out, it was even better. There was nothing to contrast because, as far as I can tell, CNN doesn't feature a single story on...

    Today, the United States Senate voted on an anti-infanticide bill introduced by Senator Ben Sasse (R-Neb.), the Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act. The legislation needed 60 votes to pass, and it failed by a vote of 53 in favor and 44 against. The bill stated that “if an abortion results in the live birth of an infant, the infant is a legal person for all purposes under the laws of the United States, and entitled to all the protections of such laws.” The 2002 Born Alive Infants Protection Act, signed into law by President George W. Bush, established that any...

    We have passed the point where Nazi comparisons are inappropriate. In the latest video about Planned Parenthood, if you want to watch it, you will see an admission that some of the children are born alive before being killed and carved up — their bodies being sold essentially for scrap. These are children. They entered into the world alive and were killed, chopped up, and sold bit by bit. “It’s a boy,” one person commented in the latest film. They talk about the commoditization of children’s eyeballs (the ones in the video were not developed enough), hearts that turn to...

I was very much a believer in the abortion issue and now I felt I was going to be part of it. I got hired as a charge nurse at this clinic that did late term abortions. I spent about 30 days on the day shift getting familiar with everything. I would witness and assist the doctor...

    For several weeks now, LiveAction has been publishing a series of articles revealing the secret horror taking place inside abortion clinics – the deliberate murder of infants born alive following a failed abortion. (LifeSiteNews has reprinted and cataloged this series here.) Gruesome testimonies of nurses forced to ignore infants gasping for breath, or covered in horrific wounds. Undeniable reports of doctors strangling, drowning and suffocating infants who just “won’t die”. Photos of tiny, still children, with skin the undeniable pink of a human being who had shortly before had a heartbeat. Most of these stories occurred prior to the passage...
