Pro-life advocate Hadley Arkes Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act is disappointed with Ben Sasse’s spineless leadership.
Arkes is the mastermind of the Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act, legislation that protects babies who survive abortion.
In Arkes’s view, Sasse and other establishment Republicans failed to follow through with his original plan and punish Democrats for their pro-abortion efforts.
“That has been my complaint about Ben Sasse, is he didn’t stick with it. Timidity or want of imagination is why … people [have] been so slow with picking up the fact that this kind of thing really resonates with the public.”
Sasse introduced the Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act earlier this year and Senate Democrats stopped it in its tracks last month.
Arkes said the legislation should have included a preamble that he originally drafted. In Arkes’s view, this legislation would function as a vehicle for Congress to assert its power over the issue of abortion. The Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act would be the first step, as Congress would gradually assert its right to regulate all forms of abortion.
According to Arkes, he had lobbied the senator to have his preamble language added on to the bill, but they did not want to derail Sasse’s version of the bill, which left it out.
Arkes drew up the Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act in 1988 and it gradually made its way into Congress. It finally became law in 2002, but it did not have much teeth as far as penalties were concerned.
According to Princeton professor Robert George, who is a friend of Arkes, the 2002 bill was a compromise that threw a bone at pro-lifers and provided cover for moderate Democrats who wanted to avoid being seen as being pro-infanticide while avoiding attacks from pro-abortion groups like Planned Parenthood and NARAL.
There has been little traction to pass penalties since the 2002 version of this bill was passed.
However, a tougher Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act has gained a resurgence ever since Virginia Governor Ralph Northam endorsed the ideas of allowing abortions up to the point of birth or not protecting infants born alive. Sadly, this bill died on a 53-44 vote.
Arkes still wants Republicans to use his legislation to attack Democrats and keep the issue alive.
Sasse, who’s a seasoned defender of legacy institutions like the military-industrial complex and a favorite son of legacy institutions, is no threat to the political establishment. For these reasons, pro-lifers would be wise to not put meaningful pro-life legislation in Sasse’s hands.
All too often, establishment Republicans water down their bills or make half-hearted efforts to pass meaningful legislation. However, their efforts are always lauded by naive political gatekeepers and make for good fundraising material.
This is how the DC swamp and its access-based lobby appendages operate.
Pro-lifers should look for another champion in the Senate. Ben Sasse simply doesn’t cut it.

FLASHBACK: Man Arrested at Bill Gates’ Estate for Allegedly Exchanging Child Porn
In late December 2014, police arrested a Seattle man at Bill Gates and Melinda Gates’ mansion for allegedly compiling more than 6,000 child rape photos.
Rick Allen Jones was employed as an engineer at the Gates’ home and was accused of trading pornography images though Gmail.
He was charged with possession of child pornography.
At the time, the 51-year-old man had been collecting child porn for a decade, according to a report from King County prosecutors.
In 2013, investigators started investigating Jones.
They were able to track him down in March 2014 after he shared a suspicious image on Gmail.
Investigators initially failed to find Jones at his Ballard, Washington apartment. However, police ended up finding Jones at Gates’ estate.
It should be noted none of the crimes actually took place at the Gates mansion.
As Jones was talking to law enforcement at the Gates’ estate, three other detectives obtained a search warrant for Jones’ in Ballard.
At the apartment, the authorities found more than 6,000 images of grisly child porn and rape, 133 of which were children identified by police. On June 19, 2015, Jones plead guilty to felony possession of child pornography and failing to report child pornography.
He was sentenced to 90 days at King County jail, which was accompanied by two years of probation — a complete slap on the wrist when compared to similar cases.
Gates has been a leading proponent of globalist causes in the last few decades.
He is currently spearheading a movement to bring mass vaccination to the U.S. to fight the Wuhan Virus.
One of the nastier secrets of these elites are their alleged connections to vast pedophile rings.
Although there’s no concrete evidence to implicate Gates as a member of these networks, it is rather curious that an employee of his would get caught up in such activities and receive a light sentence.
