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.
BLM Supporter Arrested for Killing a Police Officer As His Mother Posts About the Crime on Facebook
Henry Washington is charged with murder.
An Arizona man has been arrested and charged with homicide in the shooting death of a Bothell, Washington police officer, with his own mother posting about her son’s admission of the crime on Facebook within hours of his arrest on Tuesday.
Officer Aaron Snell of the Bothell Police Department identified Officer Jonathan Shoop, 32, as the deceased following a shootout in which Shoop sought to pull over the driver of a Pontiac G6 on Monday night. The driver of the vehicle allegedly stepped out and began opening fire at the police SUV conducting the traffic stop, later fleeing Highway 522 on foot.
Officers responding to the scene found two police officers wounded by gunfire. Snell, who had joined the Bothell Police in 2019, died of his wounds. Another officer was wounded in the shootout, but is expected to survive.
Law enforcement later arrested a suspect, 37-year old Henry Washington, as he was allegedly hiding on the roof of a small business a short distance away from the highway shootout location. Washington was injured, and was later charged with homicide, vehicular assault, and felony assault.
Police scanner audio reveals that Washington had supposedly called a hospital in Arizona, admitting that he had killed a police officer and needed medical treatment.

Washington is a supporter of the Black Lives Matter movement, judging from his affiliation with the movement on his Facebook profile picture.
In a strange twist, an account belonging to Carolyn Washington, who identifies as Washington’s mother, posted that her son had killed a police officer on her public account early on Wednesday morning, asking for prayers in the wake of her son’s crime.
Another of Washington’s Facebook photos shows the man wielding a firearm in an unsafe manner, pointing it at a cameraman who is taking his picture.
Washington has been denied bail at his first court appearance for the triple felony charges, and is currently being detained at the King County Jail.
Officer Shoop was a Coast Guard veteran who leaves behind two brothers, his mother, and his girlfriend.
