In an opinion column written in The Wall Street Journal, Senator Ben Sasse and Meghan McCain write about how the Democrat Party is now controlled by Planned Parenthood abortion extremists who support infanticide.
The Nebraska Senator and the daughter of former presidential candidate and Senator John McCain say the Democratic Party is now running by pro-abortion radicals who have moved far away from even the abortion supporters of yesteryear like Bill Clinton. At least those abortion advocates used to be able to say they wanted abortions to be rare. Today’s modern abortion advocates don’t even pay that lip service.
“The party of ‘safe, legal and rare’ has been captured by the loud voices and deep pockets of an extremist abortion industry that treats abortion as a moral good. Major Democratic politicians are even unwilling to protect the lives of babies who survive attempted abortions,” they write.
They excoriate all of the Democrat presidential candidates who recently voted for support infanticide, saying “infanticide isn’t complicated. The current debate is about whether or not it’s OK to deprive newborns of appropriate medical care.” The bill merely “would have required health-care providers to give babies who survive abortions the same care they would give to any other baby at the same gestational age.”
“It shouldn’t be controversial. It shouldn’t be partisan…. Yet under enormous pressure from an abortion industry that spends tens of millions in campaign contributions, Senate Democrats—including six seeking the presidency in 2020—filibustered the bill,” they wrote.
They also complained how the media has become a willing pro-abortion accomplice covering up the truth “with cheap euphemisms and a prefabricated narrative,” and describing “all pro-life policies, even ones backed by a majority of Americans, as ‘controversial.’”
And they highlighted how abortions up to birth and infanticide have received support from top Democrat politicians.
“Gov. Andrew Cuomo lit One World Trade Center pink to celebrate late-term abortion and the removal of protections for babies born alive during botched abortions,” they wrote. “Meanwhile in Virginia, Gov. Ralph Northam endorsed infanticide outright, suggesting that a baby born during a botched abortion ought to be ‘made comfortable,’ but then possibly left to die on the table.”
“This debate is about infanticide. Planned Parenthood is defending that crime. Many in the national media are overlooking it. Democratic politicians are hiding from it. But the American people are repulsed by it. The recent vote was a missed opportunity to protect the most vulnerable among us. But it will not be the last,” McCain and Sasse concluded.
When it comes to the 2020 presidential election there is no bigger divide between President Donald Trump and the pro-abortion Democrats who want to replace him than the issue of infanticide and abortions up to birth.
While President Trump has taken a strongly pro-life position throughout his presidency and has compiled a strong pro-life record opposing abortion and defunding the Planned Parenthood abortion business, Democrats have promoted killing babies in abortions even in the late term of pregnancy. And recently they supported infanticide.
Every single Democrat in the Senate who is running for president voted against a bill that would stop infanticide and provide medical care and treatment for babies who are born alive after botched abortions. That includes Bernie Sanders, Kamala Harris, Cory Booker, Elizabeth Warren, Kirsten Gillibrand, and Amy Klobuchar.
While they all voted to support infanticide, President Trump spoke out against infanticide in two tweets saying that it’s nothing short of “executing” babies to let them die after failed abortions
