Senate Democrats blocked a vote on two major pro-life bills in the legislative chamber on Tuesday, leaving little doubt that the party is wholly united behind support for unlimited abortion.
The two laws that were blocked were the The Born Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act and the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protections Act.
The first law would prohibit abortion being enacted upon children who survive abortion procedures. Some Democrats have suggested that it’s fair game to carry out ghoulish abortion procedures on babies who are alive.
The second bill would’ve instituted bans on abortions enacted upon fetuses that are capable of pain. Such a ban would affect late-term abortions, most notably rare procedures that are carried out on fetuses that are more than 20 weeks into development.
Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer chalked up the blocking of the pro-life bills as a political move. He claimed the consideration of laws was merely a gambit to embarrass Democrats.
In remarks after the bills were blocked from a formal floor vote, he seemed wholly unreflective as to why it was right to dismiss legislation that would institute relatively tame and common-sense restrictions on widely unpopular late-term abortion procedures.
Pennsylvania’s Bob Casey, West Virginia’s Joe Manchin and Alabama Doug Jones were the only Democrats to vote to bring the Born Alive law up for further consideration on the Senate floor. The laws would’ve required 60 votes to advance beyond the Senate flilbuster, a margin they both failed to reach.
Republican Senators blasted the chamber’s Democrats for their extremist unwillingness to consider even the most mild of restrictions on late-term abortion.
Today the Senate was asked an important question: where is your line for protecting life? Is it when the child can feel pain in the womb? Or even after the child is born? https://t.co/B16HQ1ldzQ

The votes to shut down pro-life laws that are fundamentally limited in scope makes it hard for Democrats to argue that they aren’t the party of Ralph Northam.
EQUALITY: Tennessee Legislation Would Give Discretion to Fathers Regarding Abortions
This is what fairness looks like.
Two Tennessee state legislators have introduced legislation that would allow a father to file an injunction against the pregnant mother to stop him from ending the baby’s life.
State senator Mark Pody (R) filed SB0494 in the state senate while state representative Jerry Sexton (R) introduced HB1079 in the state house. The legislation would permit “a person to petition a court for an injunction to prohibit a woman who is pregnant with the person’s unborn child from obtaining an abortion.”
Additionally, the legislation gives the petitioner the ability “to execute a voluntary acknowledgement of paternity that is not subject to being rescinded or challenged.”
“If he can prove to the courts that he is the father, the biological father, then he has rights to what’s going on with his son or daughter,” Pody said, as reported by FOX 17 News.
FOX 17 News issued a poll to gauge the support of the measure and it is practically deadlocked, showing how equality is shamefully rejected by much of the masses:
POLL: A bill moving through the #tnleg would allow the father of an unborn child to petition the court (for an injunction) if the mother of the child is planning on getting an abortion. Do you support or oppose this legislation?

Leftist special interest groups are outraged at the notion, calling this push for true equality an attack on women’s rights.
“This unconstitutional legislation demonstrates the condescending mindset underlying this bill: that men should control women’s bodies,” ACLU of Tennessee Executive Director Hedy Weinberg said in a statement. “Women are not chattel and this bill needs to be stopped in its tracks.”
“This extreme and dangerous bill would even allow a rapist to stop his victim from ending a pregnancy,” Weinberg added.
Abortion proponents are inventing absurd hypotheticals in an attempt to deny basic equality for fathers. Planned Parenthood wants to protect its very lucrative fetal chop shop racket, after all.
“A pregnant person must have the ultimate control over their body and their pregnancy. The legislature needs to stop trying to distract the public from their leadership failures with increasingly stigmatizing abortion restrictions,” said Francie Hunt, who works as the executive director of Tennessee Advocates for Planned Parenthood.
“Nobody should have the power to make health care decisions for someone else — not a judge, a partner, and certainly not a rapist regardless of paternity,” Hunt added.
It turns out that feminists and social justice warriors don’t really want equality. They only want freedom from responsibility, which includes the “right” to murder a baby in the womb. This legislation in Tennessee evens the score and more states should consider similar measures secure to men’s rights.
