Skip to comments.All Dems running for president helped kill Sasse bill protecting infants born alive

All but three Senate Democrats now openly support infanticide of babies who manage to be born alive despite an attempted abortion. A total of 60 votes were needed to overcome a promised filibuster, and the measure gained only 53 votes. But the field of presidential contenders from the Senate are now all on the record. As the Washington Post notes:
All of the announced 2020 Democratic presidential candidates — Sens. Kirsten Gillibrand (N.Y.), Cory Booker (N.J.), Kamala D. Harris (Calif.), Amy Klobuchar (Minn.), Elizabeth Warren (Mass.) and Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) — voted "no."
Senator Ben Sasse's sponsorship of the Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act and Mitch McConnell's strong support have maneuvered them into this position that likely will hobble the party in 2020.
Senate majority leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) has sought to put Democrats — and 2020 candidates in particular — on the record on the issue after recent comments made by Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam (D). McConnell also plans to hold a vote in the coming weeks on the Green New Deal climate change legislation as he has cast the Democrats as extreme.
In remarks on the Senate floor ahead of Monday's vote, McConnell described the measure as "a straightforward piece of legislation to protect newborn babies." Democrats, he argued, "seem to be suggesting that newborn babies' right to life may be contingent on the circumstances surrounding their birth."
"So my colleagues across the aisle need to decide where they'll take their cues on these moral questions. On the one hand, there are a few extreme voices who decided some newborn lives are more disposable than others. On the other side is the entire rest of the country," McConnell said.
Only three Democrats defied the abortion lobby that controls the rest of the party:

Three Democrats — Sens. Robert P. Casey Jr. (Pa.), Joe Manchin III (W.Va.) and Doug Jones (Ala.) — joined all Republicans present in supporting the measure.
No Republicans voted "no," but three did not vote at all.
1. Cramer (R-N.D.)
2. Murkowski (R-Alaska)
3. Scott (R-S.C.)
The public is turning against unlimited late-term abortion, but Democrat state legislatures in a number of states are hell-bent on legalizing infanticide. This will be an issue in 2020 count on it. The Democrats’ pandering to their extremist base will be most powerful dynamic of the election on this and other issues.
THIS WILL ALSO TELL US ABOUT THE CHARACTER OF THIS NATION. DOES AMERICA STILL HOLD JUDAEO-CHRISTIAN VALUES? OR IS IT SLIDING INTO PAGANISM?
2020 will be a defining moment in this country’s history.
Baby Killers for President 2020.
I sure hope somebody is collecting all this info for some really good campaign commercials.
let the baby-murderers filibuster ... it will help elect some decent human beings to replace them!
56 million abortions since 1973. Someones tapping in to all those guilty consciences for vindication and votes
Praying for President Trump’s reelection and the distinct likelihood that he may have as many as three more SCOTUS appointments.
Dear Lord, how has our Republic now been taken over by those who condone and abide by infanticide???!!!
Due credit to Manchin, Jones and Casey for their votes.
But, WTH possessed Cramer, Tim Scott and Lisa to sit this one out???!!!
To the Democrat way of thinking, abortion is their biggest selling point for women.
I expected Lisa Murkowski to be the moral coward that she has already shown she is ( see her punting on Justice Kavanaugh ).
But I don’t know where Tim Scott was.... Was he even present? If not, where was he? If he was, what could have possessed him? He used to be a reliable conservative...
Newborn infants can’t vote but illegal aliens can.
I read Scott was there because he voted on something else shortly thereafter. In this modern day we should MAKE them vote..by phone or something. Not voting...we know what it means, tho.
Sigh, even if those 3 Republicans had voted for the bill, we would still be a few votes short of the 60 needed to prevent a filibuster.
We need to keep praying. Even more. God is more powerful than these horrible people
Anybody know why Tim Scott (SC) did not vote?
Politics. Tit for tat, even when its an issue that matters. Not trustworthy leadership, all three of them IMO.
Super Cold-blooded Helpless Baby Murderers . . . I am speechless at the unbridled perversion and depravity
“We need to keep praying. Even more. God is more powerful than these horrible people”
Yes! Thank you for your post.
This isnt anything new, its been covered up by lies and theatrics for years. But now the members of the DC democrat party and a few Rinos have finally bared their souls, thus can now officially be called the party of death. Add to that also the party of crime and national destruction. If the democrats and the DC establishment cant rid the country of Trump and cheat their way back into power and the WH, one can reasonably conclude that something dreadful will happen to cancel the 2020 presidential election.
The democrats want to kill children. It would be nothing to them to have adults killed. obamacare was a neat way to do so. They will try other steps if that does not work.
