Carrying on the refusal to make infanticide illegal, the House Democrats have blocked a voting on the matter yet again.
“This is the sixth time Congressional Democrats thwarted an attempt by Republicans to vote on a bill that would provide medical care and treatment for babies who provide survived failed abortions — six times in the House and once in the Senate,” according to Life News.
Rep. Tom Cole, Republican from Oklahoma, asked a vote be considered for the Born Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act, that would make infanticide illegal. Rep. Cole’s request for debate was quickly shot down, again. It is the sixth time this measure has been brought up.

The current law, Born-Alive Infant Protection Act of 2002 defines children who survive abortions as “human beings”, “persons”, “individuals”, and “children” but does not specify what must medically be done to those who survive.
The proposed Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act, would “prohibit a health care practitioner from failing to exercise the proper degree of care in the case of a child who survives an abortion or attempted abortion.” Meaning, the infant would have to be rushed to a hospital after being born alive from a botched abortion.
The last attempt was brought from Indiana Representative Jackie Walorski who announced on Twitter she would propose the bill for the fifth time.
HAPPENING NOW: I’m leading a series of speeches on the House floor to call for protections for infants born alive after failed abortions. We must stand together against infanticide. Watch live on C-SPAN.

The bill has been proposed six times overall, five times in the House and Senate once – all being blocked by Democrats. Senator Patty Murray from Washington Tweeted out her support of infanticide as “women’s health and rights”.
Republicans scheduled a show vote on *another* bill attacking women’s rights & health—which leading medical groups have said should never become law. Democrats will stand w/ women, doctors, nurses, & everyone who truly cares about women’s health & rights & make sure it doesn't.

“In the Democrat-controlled House, Rep. Ann Wagner and House Minority Whip Steve Scalise plan to file a discharge petition to force a vote, under which it will receive a vote regardless of leaders’ opposition if it gets the signatures of least 218 House members, a simple majority,” according to Life Site News.
Pro-life republicans are not likely to give up on the bill anytime soon, “If the Democrats object, we’ll ask again, and again and again because it is just right,” House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy stated.
Biden Rebuffs Advisors’ Demands to Censor OANN, Newsmax, Fox News By Executive Order
Biden advisors have sought to ban conservative media from federal housing.
According to a White House source, President Joe Biden has rebuffed suggestions that he sign an executive order that would ban certain conservative news networks from being broadcast to federal housing complexes.
The order would’ve named One America News Network, Newsmax, and Fox News by name. The former two networks are known for a broadly pro-Donald Trump editorial stance, with Fox split between establishment liberal and conservative content.
Authoritarian liberals advising President Biden are said to have suggested that Biden crack down on television and media networks which dissent from the administration’s policy views, citing the raucous US Capitol protest earlier this month as an imperative to clamp down on the opposition.
The executive order in question would most prominently affect military housing, where the cable channels in question are accessible through cable services contracted through the military services. The order, which never progressed beyond suggestions to President Biden, may even have gone so far as to restrict the television channels from private housing organizations contracted to provide lodging to military service members and their families.
Biden even went so far as to dismiss the censorship attempt as “nonsense,” according to a White House source familiar with the exchange. It’s likely that attempts to sign and enforce it would’ve been shut down by the judiciary, representing a clear attempt to discriminate against the very viewing of political expression within federal buildings.
As an authoritarian streak grows more prominent in the intolerant attitudes of American liberals, it appears President Biden himself is at least skeptical to the slightest degree of governmental censorship attempts, although Biden has never so much as even made reference to the censorship practices utilized by Big Tech companies against tens of millions of Americans.
