    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,...
  • State records reveal extent of botched abortions, as GOP reps push ‘born-alive’ protection law

    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...
  • Texas Senate passes 'born alive' abortion bill

    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...
  • Every Democrat Who Voted Against the Born Alive Bill Received Money From Planned Parenthood

    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...
  • Democrats fight for kittens’ right to life after voting to kill born-alive babies

    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...
  • Senate fails to pass bill protecting infants surviving abortion

    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...

    Marleen Goldstein worked in a hospital that performed abortions. After 30 years, she’s come forward with her story. According to Goldstein: My husband was a resident at a hospital and I just got “the job of my dreams” at a nearby Oakland hospital. 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...

    Murdered in 2009 by anti-abortion fanatic Scott Roeder, Kansas late-term abortionist George Tiller has since been immortalized by pro-aborts as a rhetorical cudgel to slander peaceful pro-life Americans as condoning and enabling violence (a standard they would naturally take great umbrage at if pro-lifers blamed their entire movement for violence committed by individuals on their side).Salon’s Katie McDonough interviewed abortionist Cheryl Chastine, the current medical director of Tiller’s former clinic, about “honor[ing] his memory by providing fearless care for Kansans”:On pro-life laws requiring Chastine to give her patients “information that is intended to mislead them”: It feels like there’s a...

    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...

Jeffrey ( - According to a Pennsylvania grand jury, Dr. Kermit Gosnell, the wealthy Philadelphia abortionist now on trial for seven counts of murdering babies who had survived his late-term abortions, repeatedly sliced the necks of born babies in front of a teenage employee, and once told his long-time assistant (the teenager's mother) that a writhing born baby whose neck he had just severed was like a "chicken with its head...

    Media Bias: A basketball coach who shoves and curses at his players merits constant coverage by a media also transfixed by Newtown. But a Philadelphia doctor on trial for murdering a woman and seven babies? It's ignored. Those who get their news from the three major networks have probably not heard of Dr. Kermit Gosnell, now on trial in Philadelphia, charged with seven counts of first-degree murder and one count of third-degree murder for killing seven babies who survived abortions and a woman who died after a botched pain-killer injection. Everybody has heard of Mike Rice, the disgraced former Rutgers...

    Worse still, as a state senator in Illinois, Obama opposed the Born-Alive Infants Protection Act and in his defense said something that should put a chill up every mother's spine: There wasn't any question about what was happening. The abortions were going wrong. The babies weren't cooperating. They wouldn't die as planned. Or, as Illinois state senator Barack Obama so touchingly put it, there was "movement or some indication that, in fact, they're not just coming out limp and dead." No, Senator. They wouldn't go along with the program. They wouldn't just come out limp and dead. They were coming...

    In a fact check of Wednesday's Republican presidential debate on CNN, Associated Press reporters Calvin Woodward and Tom Raum take Newt Gingrich to task for stating: "If we’re going to have a debate about who the extremist is on these issues, it is President Obama, who as a state senator voted to protect doctors who killed babies who survived the abortion." Citing the above statement in a list of what they call "head-scratching claims," Woodward and Raum challenge it as follows: "THE FACTS: As an Illinois state senator, Obama voted against legislation promoted by anti-abortion activists that would have conferred...

    The miraculous inner strength and will to live is so strong with some babies that even despite attempts to abort them, they survive – born into the world, umbilical cord cut… breathing on their own. Only a few years ago, these children could be left to die – murdered after birth. The President opposed legislation that would protect their lives. Obama - who today won the Nobel Peace Prize – while a Senator in Chicago, blocked the Born Alive Infant Protection Act. The Act eventually passed in Illinois despite Obama’s opposition.

    I've been dreading writing about the Born Alive bill, the legislation Obama opposed in the Illinois related to babies who are accidentally born, alive, during abortions. I have a swirl of mixed emotions and thoughts, and realize that collectively they will offend nearly everyone. Here goes: Obama has lied or dissembled on parts of the controversy. He's claimed that he opposed the Born Alive bill in the Illinois legislature because it lacked a particular protection for Roe v. Wade. When the Right to Life committee rebutted him on that, he called them liars. The Right to Life committee was correct....
