DEMS BLOCK “BORN ALIVE” BILL FOR THE MEDICAL CARE FOR CHILDREN WHO SURVIVE FAILED ABORTIONS
“I was disappointed,” Ohden said, “Fox & Friends” Tuesday morning”, but I’m certainly not surprised. The Democrats last night voted against this bill really has shown us that you are willing to sacrifice, to keep a life like mine, abortion-on-demand legal.”
She added that it is regrettable to see pro-abortion legislation sweeping blocks on the nation, as Democrats, the bill.
“No child, your life should be left to supply in the hands of the abortionist or a medical professional to kind of decide, you medical care,” said Ohden. “We need this law so that not only we provided the medical care, but there is a penalty to do if there is a failure.”
ABORTION SURVIVOR ON NEW LATE-TERM ABORTION BILLS: ‘WHERE WERE MY RIGHTS IN THE WOMB?’
Ohden remains to die with hope in spite of the bill.
“We continue to see bills like this introduced, and I have great hope, because we have great Republican lawmakers, to live committed to, is the life of the President so committed to, and really, our nation is full of people who are as pro-life and want to do something about it.”
President Trump agreed, said on Monday “will be remembered as one of the most shocking votes in the history of Congress.”
“Senate Democrats voted just to prevent against legislation that the killing of newborn children,” wrote Trump. “The Democrat position on abortion is so extreme that you don’t mind running baby AFTER birth.”
All the prominent Democratic 2020 presidential hopefuls in the Senate agreed to the measure, including Bernie Sanders of Vermont, Kamala Harris, of California, and Cory Booker from New Jersey, Kirsten Gillibrand in New York, Amy Klobuchar of Minnesota and Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts. The final vote was 53-44 to end Democratic delaying tactics — seven votes, almost 60.
Three Democrats joined the Republicans to support the bill, Joe Manchin of West Virginia, Bob Casey of Pennsylvania, USA — with Doug Jones or Alabama. Three Republicans have not participated in the vote, apparently because of scheduling problems and flight delays-including Kevin Cramer from North Dakota, Lisa Murkowski of Alaska and Tim Scott of South Carolina.
Sen Ben Sasse, R-Neb., the bill’s sponsor, told night, “The story with Martha MacCallum” on Monday, calling for every opponent, “continually” lied to, “stark nonsense”, the bill “would be abortion at the end of a,” when in reality “it should not be about politics…this should be around with a heart.”
