On February 4, Pulpit & Pen reported that a unanimous vote was expected in the the U. S. Senate on the S.130 – Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act. Instead of the predicted voted, Senate Democrats blocked the vote and eventually it was sent back to the House of Representatives.
After more than two months and 25 additional blocks by House Democrats, Rep. Dan Crenshaw (R-Texas) said:
Although the legislation was never intended to limit the right to abortion, clearly, the House Democrats have intended to block it because what they insist it is their “right to a dead baby,” as reported by the Federalist online news site.
Rep. Crenshaw asked the questions that those who are opposed to abortion want answered:
What this bill says is during an attempted abortion, and the baby is actually born alive, should the doctor actually save it? Now the next question you might ask is, why are we doing this? Is this a question that actually needs answering? Well no actually, because of policies proposed in Virginia and New York and Vermont, we feel that we actually have to put this into law. We actually have to put into law that a baby born with ten fingers and ten toes and a heartbeat, a baby that is breathing, deserves to live because it has value, because it is a human life.
What Is The Legislation That Has Been Proposed By Virginia, New York, And Vermont And The Status Of This Legislation
On January 9, legislation was introduced to the Virginia House, HB 2491 that would remove the requirement of a woman to wait a 24-hour period before an abortion could be performed, a woman in her second trimester of pregnancy would be required to have an abortion in a hospital, a woman would no longer be required to have the written confirmation that the pregnancy is life-threatening by three doctors instead only one doctor is required and would include the mental health of the woman as considered life-threatening. Currently, it remains in the House: Left in Courts of Justice.
On January 22, the 46th anniversary of Roe v. Wade, New York passed the Reproductive Health Act. Pulpit & Pen reported the devastating and horrifying news:
The bill, dubbed the Reproductive Health Act, redefines a “person” as “a human being who has been born and is alive,” and describes abortion as a “fundamental right.” This language will allow unborn babies to be aborted for basically any reason up to birth in New York.LifeNews quoted in the Pulpit & Pen
New York Governor Andrew Cuomo signed the Reproductive Health Act that night, the 46th anniversary of Roe v. Wade. The date that will live in infamy as the moment that unborn children were no longer safe in their mother’s womb.
On February 22, the Vermont House of Representatives gave final approval to H -57, “an act reserving the right to abortion.” Vermont House Judiciary Committee Chair, Rep. Maxine Grad (D-Moretown) states H -57:
This bill codifies current state of Vermont practice, which has no restrictions on a woman’s access to reproductive healthcare services, including abortion,” […] “It ensures that women’s access to abortion remains unconstrained by the law and gives women certainty under the law.”
Currently, H-57 resides in the Vermont Senate Committee on Health and Welfare.
In review, Democrats, whether through state or federal government, will stop at nothing to secure the scandalous murder of unborn babies declaring and confirming the autonomy of women by vacuuming, ripping, tearing, crushing, and snuffing out the lives of these unborn babies of inconvenience.
As Rep. Crenshaw demanded from the House Majority Leader, Rep. Nancy Pelosi,” Enough,” we couldn’t agree more
