SICKENING! Rep. Steve Scalise Asks Dems To Protect Babies Born Alive and They Refuse!

This is shocking


You’d think we could all be against killing LIVE babies, right?

Well, last week we learned the Governor of Virginia wasn’t necessarily against that.

And today, we saw the Democrat party in Congress with a similar reaction.

This is so insane, you have to wonder “are we all living in real life?”

How did we ever get to a point in America where certain people would not support protecting babies born ALIVE?

But that seems to be the case.

As Rep. Wagner put it:

“To my colleagues, this is the simplest vote you will ever take: either you support babies being killed after they are born or you don’t. It is time to go on the record and make clear if you think babies born alive deserve medical care, or if you think they should be left to die.”

Well, I think the Democrats just gave us their answer.  

And it’s SICKENING.

My only hope is that they’ve so grossly overplayed their hand, moved so far to the left, that America will reject them in droves in 2020 and it leads to the greatest Republican Red Wave in all of recorded history!

It’s looking like that could very well happen.

Anyway, take a look at this video and post from Rep. Scalise:

Before the entire House, I asked for immediate consideration of a bill that protects infants born alive during abortions. But Democrats rejected my motion and refused to consider it. Why won’t they go on record and tell the American people where they stand on infanticide?

Our friends over at the Western Journal had more:

Missouri Republican Rep. Ann Wagner recently introduced a bill known as H.R. 962, referred to as the Born Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act, which would require health care practitioners to provide life-saving care to infants that survive an attempted abortion.

The measure has drawn 121 co-sponsors — only one of whom is a Democrat from Georgia — and has been championed by Republican House Minority Whip Steve Scalise.

On Wednesday, Scalise attempted to force a declaration of unanimous consent on the bill to move it along and out of the House Judiciary Committee that it had been referred to, but that effort by Scalise was blocked by Democratic leadership.

Afterward, Scalise tweeted, “Before the entire House, I asked for immediate consideration of a bill that protects infants born alive during abortions. But Democrats rejected my motion and refused to consider it. Why won’t they go on record and tell the American people where they stand on infanticide?”

While on the House floor, Scalise asked of the Democratic member filling in for Democratic Speaker Nancy Pelosi, “Mr. Speaker, I ask unanimous consent that the committee on judiciary be discharged from further consideration of H.R. 962, the Born Alive Survivors Protection Act, and I ask for its immediate consideration in the House.”

The acting Democratic Speaker replied, “Under guidelines consistently issued by successive speakers, as recorded in Section 956 of the House rules and manual, the chair is constrained not to entertain the request, unless it has been cleared by the bipartisan flooring committee leadership.” In other words, “No.”

Later, Scalise asked once again, “Mr. Speaker, if this unanimous consent request can’t be entertained, I would urge the Speaker and Majority Leader to schedule the Born Alive bill immediately, so we can stand up and protect the sanctity of human life, Mr. Speaker.”

Scalise’s remark earned applause and cheers from fellow Republicans in the House chamber, prior to him adding amid the cacophony, “And I would ask all others to join in on that request … and I yield back.”

Unfortunately, Scalise’s effort to get Democrat members officially on record as either opposing or supporting the killing of abortion survivors has been unsuccessful, as that is something far too many members of that party have studiously avoided, and will continue to avoid, as long as possible.

In a statement coinciding with the failed effort by Scalise, as well as a similarly shot down effort in the Senate led by Nebraska Sen. Ben Sasse, Family Research Council President Tony Perkins said, “Democrats in both the House and Senate rushed to the floor to block unanimous consent requests on a bill that would require the same comfort and care to an infant who survives an abortion as any other infant who is born.”

“The radicalization of the Democratic party is truly complete,” he continued. “Infanticide has always been unacceptable in a civilized society, regardless of what one may think about abortion itself. The unthinkable — that elected officials would support infanticide — has now become reality.”

“The governors of New York and Virginia want to talk about abortion in euphemisms and broad strokes — instead of what it really is: a gruesome and barbaric form of killing children even up through birth and possibly after,” Perkins said.

The Hill also covered the new Bill:

House Minority Whip Steve Scalise (R-La.) and Rep. Ann Wagner (R-Mo.) are looking to force a floor vote on legislation aimed at requiring medical care protections for infants born during an abortion.

The GOP lawmakers announced Wednesday that they plan to introduce a discharge petition, which could allow them to circumvent Democratic leadership and bring the legislation to the floor.

The legislative tool, which requires signatures from at least 218 House lawmakers, could face an uphill battle garnering sufficient Democratic support. Republicans hold 199 seats in the House.

Scalise later said he thinks a number of Democrats will sign the discharge petition, noting that six Democrats voted in favor of the bill in the previous Congress.

The Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act would require medical practitioners to provide the same level of care to infants who survive abortions as those who didn't undergo the procedure. Hospital employees would be mandated to report violations to law enforcement officials, and violators would face fines or up to five years in prison.

The push to force a vote comes in the wake of remarks by Gov. Ralph Northam (D) defending similar in Virginia legislation that would make it easier to obtain a third-trimester abortion.

"In this particular example, 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,” Northam said on a local radio show last week.

His comments sparked outrage from anti-abortion groups and Republicans, who argued failing to provide care to a newborn is infanticide.

“We must immediately extend legal protections to these vulnerable newborns and prosecute any doctor who would leave them to die,” Scalise said in a statement. “I introduced this resolution to begin the process of forcing a vote on Congresswoman Wagner’s important piece of legislation, especially after horrific actions taken in New York and Virginia to permit infanticide. The silence from Congressional Democrats is deafening and shameful.”

Wagner argued the vote is necessary to put members on the record on where they stand on the issue.

“I have been horrified to watch radical Democratic legislators argue that babies who survive abortions should not be given the same level of medical care that all other newborn babies receive,” she said in a statement.

“To my colleagues, this is the simplest vote you will ever take: either you support babies being killed after they are born or you don’t. It is time to go on the record and make clear if you think babies born alive deserve medical care, or if you think they should be left to die.”
