Let there be no misunderstanding in my communication. United States Senators Amy Klobuchar (MN) and Tina Smith (MN) promote infanticide. They disgust me.
Democrats Amy Klobuchar and Tina Smith are mothers. Both have held newborns in their arms immediately following a live birth. You would think the experience of holding a minutes-old-child would have some impact on the women. It does not. Both Minnesota senators voted no on the Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act. They are abhorrent.
The brief legislation attempts to do one thing and one thing only - save the life of a little human who survives an attempt to kill it via abortion.
Congress finds the following:
(1) If an abortion results in the live birth of an infant, the infant is a legal person for all purposes under the laws of the United States, and entitled to all the protections of such laws.
2) Any infant born alive after an abortion or within a hospital, clinic, or other facility has the same claim to the protection of the law that would arise for any newborn, or for any person who comes to a hospital, clinic, or other facility for screening and treatment or otherwise becomes a patient within its care.
Any health care practitioner present at the time the child is born alive shall -
"(A) exercise the same degree of professional skill, care, and diligence to preserve the life and health of the child as a reasonably diligent and conscientious health care practitioner would render to any other child born alive at the same gestational age; and
"(B) following the exercise of skill, care, and diligence required under subparagraph (A), ensure that the child born alive is immediately transported and admitted to a hospital.
The two democrat senators from the state of Minnesota joined 42 other democrat senators from across the United States to strike down legislation "to preserve the life and health of the child."
U.S. Senator Tina Smith, Democrat from Minnesota, took to the senate floor prior to Monday's vote to state her wildly irrational position and call others to join her resistance. Her Twitter pageproudly promotes her opposition (click the link to listen to her full speech). Immediately following her tweet against saving lives is a second tweet that reads "Be kind and love one another" and shows a picture of children from the Red Lake Band of American Indians.
Am I the only one who sees the absurdity of this intersectionality?
Since 1973 democrats and other abortionists have preached to us that prior to birth what was in the womb was a collection of cells or an unviable fetus or whatever other phrase they employed to take away the idea that a real human being was in there. They told us over and again the baby had to be outside of the womb to be considered a human. Not any more. Those were the old rules. Try to keep up.
To 44 democrats including Klobuchar and Smith, it doesn't matter if a baby survives an abortion, is outside its mother's body, is alive, has a heartbeat, is breathing, or is moving. If the mother wants it dead and the doctor is willing to kill it or let it die, then make it happen. They make me want to vomit.
44 United States Senators from the democrat party voted no to giving those little humans the rights of every other child born to a mother, and they voted no to the requirement to provide reasonable care. The Minnesota senators both women, both mothers voted no. Let that sink in.
Minnesota Nice, yeah right.
I've previously written that abortionists and the democrat party and Senators Klobuchar and Smith will not move one inch away from their lust to kill babies and to allow them to die. They will not oppose late term abortion. They will not require parental consent for a minor seeking an abortion. And now they will not come to the aid of the most vulnerable human beings.
Late term abortions are a small percentage of the total. Do not equate small percentage with a small number. The most recent informationfrom the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) reported a total of 638,169 abortions for the calendar year. 1.3% or 8,296 abortions occurred after 20 weeks gestation. Babies who survive abortions are those very late in the pregnancy.
When a baby dies post birth, the CDC calls this an "infant death." From 2003–2014 there were 315,392 infant deaths and 49,126,572 live births. Of those 315,392 infant deaths, the CDC calls 143 of them "induced terminations." An induced termination is when some action or inaction takes place following the birth of a live human being that caused its death or did not prevent its death. The CDC admits the number 143 may not fully reflect the number of induced terminations.
When an induced termination happens, a cause-of-death certifier completes a death certificate. Read that again. There was a live birth and now there is a death. There is documentation attesting the fact. 44 democrat senators including Senators Klobuchar and Smith are more than ok with that.
What do those death certificates list as the cause of death? The CDC reports unedited language used exactly by the cause-of-death certifier. Here's a sample (click the link above to read them for yourself).
Abortion for maternal medical reasons
Attempted elective abortion (mother changed her mind)
Desires second trimester abortion
Elective termination by patient
Failed abortion Induced termination of pregnancy
Therapeutic termination of pregnancy
Voluntary interruption of pregnancy
Voluntary termination of pregnancy
What more is necessary to declare the democrat party, nearly all the democrat senators and our two senators from the great state of Minnesota as promoters of infanticide? They are no different than Thotmes II during the time of Moses (Exodus 1:15–16) and no different than King Herod at the birth of Jesus (Matthew 2:16).
Shortly, our two senators will receive written communication from me in the strongest language possible condemning their failures to protect the most vulnerable of our race. I hope you will join me in the condemnation by calling or writing to their offices. Further, I hope you will never grow comfortable with the killing of little humans within the womb and now, almost unbelievably, outside the womb.
May God have mercy on us all.
As always I welcome your feedback and any suggestions you might have for an upcoming Lunchtime Musing.
