President Trump said it like it is after the Senate voted down a bill protecting abortion survivors from further death this week. Trump, along with Sen. Ben Sasse (R-Neb.), had promoted the Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act, a bill that would punish doctors from not treating babies who survived botched abortions. The bill was a response to the gruesome abortion laws being touted in states like Virginia, where Governor Ralph Northam (since disgraced for racist attire during college) defended letting babies die after delivery while being kept "comfortable."
It's sick, and President Trump, an incredibly strong pro-life advocate, rightly referred to it as "executing babies." He was stunned when the Senate voted down a bill that he said everyone, regardless of party, should agree upon.
He tweeted out these powerful statements: "Senate Democrats just voted against legislation to prevent the killing of newborn infant children. The Democrat position on abortion is now so extreme that they don’t mind executing babies AFTER birth...This will be remembered as one of the most shocking votes in the history of Congress. If there is one thing we should all agree on, it’s protecting the lives of innocent babies."
But the new Planned Parenthood CEO, Leana Wen, shared a disturbing response in defense. She shared that she had just become a mother one year ago, using that as evidence that Trump's dismay over the refusal to protect abortion survivors was illegitimate.
"As a mother to a one-year old, I am disgusted by @RealDonaldTrump’s lies that aim to stoke fear and division. I know his true intention: to shame women, limit our access to health care, and take away our rights," said Wen.
"We should all speak up and fight back when @RealDonaldTrump is spreading lies & deliberate misinformation. The Sasse bill is about criminalizing doctors and taking away the right to safe, legal abortion. #ProtectProviders," she continued.
What is disturbing is that a woman who recently felt a baby kick inside of her, saw the ultrasounds and presumably rejoiced over the life growing in her womb, could then turn around and be the leader of a movement that actively kills babies in other mothers' wombs. How can she divorce the baby she cares for today from the babies' she seeks to allow to be murdered?
It is baffling, truly. And others were similarly disturbed. "Killing the unborn has now gravitated to killing the born. My body my choice has now become my baby my choice. Fighting for the right to kill a baby after it’s born struggling to survive. You can call it whatever you want. It’s pure evil," said one commenter.
"Although I'm seriously surprised her medical license hasn't been suspended for advocating murder," said another.
A slew of new bills are cropping up around the country, sponsored by Democrats, that seek to extend the limits of abortion to full-term babies--that is, allowing abortion without question for babies even onl their due-dates. Some states are even toying with bills that would allow for abortion while a woman is in active labor, leaving still room for what happens when baby is fully delivered, i.e., complete infanticide.
It's evil and out of step for the rest of the nation that is increasingly turning pro-life. But there's big money in it for Wen and her associates. You see, the less time restriction on legal abortion, the greater the clientele for Planned Parenthood. If you increase the legal limits from the first term to the second term, you've doubled your potential profits. If you increase it to full-term, you've tripled. Sick, right?
We need to pray that America rejects this evil move by Democrats. Half of the nation is currently against abortion; we need to be vocal, vote out pro-choice Democrats, and pray that Trump and Pence succeed in their efforts to overthrow abortion in our nation.
