On Thursday, the U.S. Senate rejected the Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act, which would give basic medical care to children in the womb. All but two Democrats voted for it, Sens. Joe Manchin (D-WV) and Bob Casey (D-PA). The final vote was 52-48, however, it needed 60 votes for passage.

LifeNews reports:

“This vote shows just how extreme the majority of Senate Democrats are,” said Carol Tobias, president of National Right to Life. “This bill is not about abortion but pro-abortion groups and their allies in the Senate have tried to make it about abortion.”

Tobias continued, “There is no such thing as a ‘post-birth abortion.’ Allowing a child to die after birth is infanticide.”

The Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act requires that, when a baby is born alive following an abortion, health care practitioners must exercise the same degree of professional skill and care that would be offered to any other child born alive at the same gestational age. It also requires that, following appropriate care, health care workers must transport the child immediately to a hospital.

Current federal law does not sufficiently protect a child born following an abortion.

“Any Senator who opposed this legislation should be ashamed,” said Tobias. “After surviving the violence of abortion, these newborn babies should be given the chance to survive.”

The bill also failed in the last Congress due to a lack of bipartisan support. The new vote simply reaffirms the anti-life positions of many Senate Democrats.

May God have mercy on their souls. Democrats are an evil and corrupt group that need to be dealt with. However shaming them only makes them bolder.

I hope everyone who voted for Chinese comrade Joe Biden and his team of Nazi’s are ashamed
of the man and team . Of course we know that, the election was a coordinated paid for and orchestrated by many criminals , so that Biden could be placed as a “ Token” President . I pray for the day when all of them get their indictments and prison terms handed to them.

For many who makes this horrific decision the guilt can tear ones heart apart. Humans make dreadful mistakes, but our father in heaven says to repent, and ask forgiveness. He is full of mercy and grace. Those who do not go through this remorse or repentance seem to me heartless but it is not for me to judge, it’s up to the Father. We should pray for all to see the light and stand up for what we know in our hearts is wrong. May God help us all to receive him and his forgiveness. I pray if he wills it, we are all blessed to know his mercy and grace through our lord and Savior.
