House Democrats Block a Vote on Infanticide Bill for 11th Straight Time

Published

on

Congressional Democrats are adamant not to vote on a bill that would make infanticide illegal.

Now totaling a number of 13 times the bill has been proposed in Congress – 11 times in the House and twice in the Senate – voting on the bill has been shot down every single time by Democrats. Republican Representative Chris Smith from New Jersey moved to request a unanimous vote on the Born-Alive Abortion Survivor Protection Act on Tuesday.

Rep. Smith attempt to request a vote on the bill was quickly shut down by the chair, who ruled him out of order. Rep. Smith microphone was even muted after the request – not allowing him to combat the chair’s decision to block the vote.

“If the Democrats continue to block consideration of H.R. 962, after 30 legislative days, Republican Whip Steve Scalise (R-LA) and Rep. Wagner plan to file a motion to discharge the resolution from the Rules Committee,” according to Life News. Republicans are over the fact that Congressional Democrats will not vote on this important issue – that is not about abortion.

The two Representatives plan to introduce a petition that would get the infanticide bill out of the Rules Committee and onto 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,” according to The Hill.

Having Republican support in both the House and the Senate, Senator Ben Sasse, who previously introduced the bill in the Senate explained why this bill is not about abortion:

“As pro life as I am, this issue is not about abortion. It’s about babies that have survived abortion. All the legislation will do is say the doctors would be obligated to provide the same care for a baby that survives an abortion. That care that would be given to any other baby in that stage of gestation when he or she were born.”

“It’s a bloody ugly thing that he does and the only people out of 200 nations in the world, the only nations that do the kind of practice he does are North Korea, China and Vietnam.”

The Democrat party is now becoming the party that refuses to denounce infanticide. When last proposed in the Senate, 44 Senators voted to allow infanticide to be legal. So much for that “safe and rare” Democratic stance on abortion.

The good news is that a poll from Susan B. Anthony List indicates that the majority of American voters strongly oppose infanticide.

  • 77 percent of voters support legislation to ensure that a baby who survives a failed abortion be given the same medical treatment as any other baby born prematurely at the same age (55 percent strongly support).
  • 62 percent of voters oppose legislation to allow late-term abortions, even up to the point when a woman is in labor (50 percent strongly oppose).

If only those American voters could elect representatives that also opposed the legalization of infanticide.

SICK: American Icon Plymouth Rock Vandalized, Spray-Painted in Massachusetts

It’s likely the vandalism is an anti-American hate crime.

Published

on

An icon of American heritage and civilization, Plymouth Rock, was found vandalized and spray-painted upon Monday morning by criminals at its namesake in Plymouth, Massachusetts.

Plymouth Rock symbolizes the first arrival of the pilgrims from England in North America in 1620 A.D. The vandalism was found just weeks before a ceremony intended to celebrate the 400th anniversary of the pilgrim’s arrival in Massachusetts.

The large boulder is marked with the characters ‘1620’ to symbolize the pilgrims’ arrival. The rock was the first sight of those who disembarked from the Mayflower in the New World.

It’s unclear what the red spray-paint on the rock is intended to convey, but there’s a strong possibility the vandalism is motivated by hatred towards the icon of American culture.

In addition to the rock, the spray-paint vandals also targeted a nearby statue intended to commemorate the first pilgrims to arrive in North America.

It’s also noteworthy that the vandalism was found on President’s Day, suggesting a further possibility of anti-American hatred as a motivation.

400th anniversary celebrations of the pilgrims’ arrival are scheduled for April, and to this day are a point of pride for many of their descendants who live in Massachusetts.

The director of a Plymouth cultural and tourism agency, Lea Filson, expressed her disappointment to see the icon of America so disrespected.

“Seeing this type of disrespect for the historic reminders of the Mayflower story is both sad and unsettling. The outpouring of concern and anger over the incident has been a positive ending to a thoughtless gesture.”

The town of Plymouth has already removed the vandalism from the rock, and local police are investigating to locate the culprits.
