At his campaign rally in Tulsa, Oklahoma over the weekend, President Donald Trump slammed Democrats for supporting late-term abortions and infanticide. The president has consistently drawn attention to the radical pro-abortion positions of Democrats as Nancy Pelosi has blocked a vote on a bill to stop infanticide 80 times, Ralph Northam specifically supported infanticide and Joe Biden has refused to condemn either action.
“They want to crush religious liberty – they don’t want religion – silence religious believers, indoctrinate your children with hateful and vicious lies about our country, subsidise late-term abortion and after-birth execution,” Trump said during the rally.
And he’s right.
Nancy Pelosi and House Democrats continue to refuse a request to allow a vote on the Born Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act, legislation that would stop infanticide and provide medical care and treatment for babies who survive abortions.
Last year, House Democrats refused a vote on the Born Alive bill for the 80th time — reading the same statement they have read the previous 79 occasions that claims there is no bipartisan agreement to bring the bill up for a vote. Despite the claim, Republican leaders have repeatedly asked Pelosi and top Democrats to reach an agreement for the bill to receive a vote.
Not only has Joe Biden refused to condemn this, but he put on his campaign team some of the same people who refused to support the anti-infanticide bill.
U.S. Sen. Chris Dodd of Connecticut and U.S. Rep. Lisa Blunt Rochester of Delaware arfe heading up his panel to select a vice presidential nominee. Both refuse to allow a vote on the Born Alive bill.
Biden recently said he would be committed to “the constitutional right to an abortion” and “reverse the Trump administration and states’ all-out assault on women’s right to choose.” He also promised to “work to codify Roe v. Wade.” The infamous U.S. Supreme Court decision made the United States one of only seven countries in the world that allows elective abortions after 20 weeks of pregnancy.
His health care plan would expand abortions as well. It would force insurance companies to cover abortions as “essential” health care under Obamacare.
What’s more, pro-abortion movement leaders say they “trust” Biden to protect abortion on demand.
From 2001 to 2008, Biden’s voting record on pro-life issues was close to zero, according to the National Right to Life Committee. In 2005, for example, he voted against the Mexico City Policy, which prohibits funding to overseas groups that promote and/or perform abortions. He also voted repeatedly to require that military service members’ abortions be covered by taxpayer dollars.
SBA List President Marjorie Dannenfelser has also called out Democrats for their extremism.
“Americans of all political stripes are disgusted by this extreme, inhumane position and we are confident that will be reflected at the ballot box this November. President Trump stands ready to sign the popular, compassionate Born-Alive legislation into law. It is national Democrats – from the party’s leading presidential contenders to Nancy Pelosi – who stand squarely in the way of protecting these innocent children from being left to die,” she said.
