As Democrats’ abortion positions have become more extreme, they have no longer sought to even persuade fellow citizens with whom they disagree. Rather, they have become openly hostile to Americans who disagree on this great moral challenge.Sen. Ben Sasse
There isn’t much I can add to Senator Ben Sasse, the author of the Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act, speech. Listen and think about it.
The Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act.
Senator Ben Sasse’s bill requires any health care practitioner who is present when a child is born alive following an abortion or attempted abortion to, first, exercise the same degree of care as reasonably provided to any other child born alive at the same gestational age, and second, ensure that such a child is immediately admitted to a hospital.
The reason for Senator Ben Sasse’s bill flows from the recent explosion of advocacy for late-term abortion. Specifically, legislated on Jan 22, 2019, in New York State, Reproductive Health Act, and newly proposed The Repeal Act in Virginia.
Below you can read a short exchange between Virginia House of Delegates Majority Leader Todd Gilbert and sponsor of the bill Kathy Tran who explained to Del. Gilbert, what her bill is about.
- House Majority Leader, Del. Todd Gilbert:
How late in the third trimester could a physician perform an abortion if he indicated it would impair the mental health of the woman?
- Sponsor of the bill, Del. Kathy Tran:
Through the third trimester. The third trimester goes all the way up to 40 weeks.
- Todd Gilbert:
Where it’s obvious a woman is about to give birth, that she has physical signs that she is about to give birth—would that be a point at which she could still request an abortion if she was so certified? She’s dilating.
- Kathy Tran:
Mr. Chairman, that would be a decision that the doctor, the physician, and the woman would make at that point.
- Todd Gilbert:
I understand that. I’m asking if your bill allows that.
- Kathy Tran:
My bill would allow that, yes.
And now a scary part. Virginia’s governor, Ralph Northam explained on a Washington-area radio station, WTOP what will happen if as a result of (insanely) late-term abortion, a child is born alive.
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.
“The infant would be resuscitated if that’s what the mother and the family desired.” What if they don’t desire for infant to be resuscitated?
“And then a discussion would ensue between the physicians and the mother.” Discussion about what?
Maybe I’m overreacting, but it looks to me that Governor is talking about the possibility of infanticide.
So, a kid is born alive and “kept comfortable” when mother and father discuss what to do with new (temporary) addition to their family. Is there a time limit on how long it can take for the parents to decide on the future of the child? Is it 15 min? An hour? Maybe a day? I would hate to hear on the evening news, that some mom somewhere finally decided to abort her 32-year-old son living in her house’s basement apartment…
