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.
British Police Officer CRIMINALLY CHARGED for Sharing George Floyd Meme in WhatsApp Group
Free speech is dead.
A British police officer has been criminally charged over a George Floyd meme he allegedly shared with his colleagues in a WhatsApp group.
“Sergeant Geraint Jones, aged 47, is charged with sending the image on 30 May last year by means of a public electronic communications network, an offence contrary to section 127 of the Communications Act 2003,” a watchdog from the Independent Office for Police Conduct announced. “An altered image of George Floyd’s arrest in Minneapolis was shared within a WhatsApp group that included a number of other police officers and staff.”
“Our investigation began in June 2020 following a referral from the force,” the watchdog continued. “At its conclusion in October we sent our investigation report to the Crown Prosecution Service, which has authorized the charge.”
Sergeant Jones is scheduled to appear in court on January 28. He has been suspended from duty since June.
It’s no secret that free speech is all but dead in the United Kingdom. British elites stand out in particular for their fervent belief in neoliberal globalism and veneration of its secular saints. Their society encourages people to snitch and tattle on their fellow citizens to a higher degree than most any other Western nation.
George Floyd is also one of the neoliberal order’s foremost secular saints. Anything you say about him that isn’t equivalent to hero-worship will get you put on notice. Criticizing the intensity of his veneration and the Black Lives Matter movement itself are sufficient to get you labeled as a depraved racist and fired from your job—even in the United States.
Don’t think that hate speech laws aren’t possible in America either. If a majority of Americans and legal scholars in a decade or two come to believe that the First Amendment doesn’t protect “hate speech,” who’s to say that the laws won’t be changed to reflect that?
