By Dave Andrusko On Thursday we reposted what I consider the best analysis yet of the vote for infanticide, by which I mean a vote against the Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act. The in-depth look was provided by Paul Stark of Minnesota Citizens Concerned for Life and ran under the headline, “Here’s exactly how Minnesota …Continue reading "A brilliant critique of the Democrats’ phony defense of infanticide"
By Kirk Walden Recent news events—particularly New York’s passage of a sweeping abortion law which clearly embraces infanticide—are leading many in the Christian community to wonder whether we will ever see the end of abortion. After all, if we can’t hold back infanticide, how can things do anything but get worse? New York’s law, however, …Continue reading "How Early Christians Resisted Infanticide by Loving Their Neighbors"
By Paul Stark On Feb. 25, Minnesota’s two U.S. senators, Amy Klobuchar and Tina Smith, joined 42 other senators to successfully block legislation to protect newborn babies who survive abortion. The legislation in question, the Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act (S. 311), requires that babies born alive in the context of abortion be treated with …Continue reading "Here’s exactly how Minnesota Senator Tina Smith justified her vote for infanticide"
By Dave Andrusko As we often do the last post of the day I’d like to look at one item (abortion, in this case) through the lens of another (“assisted” suicide). Way back in 2014, you’ll recall Brittany Maynard became the face of “assisted suicide.” It was no accident the assisted suicide movement, led by …Continue reading "Infanticide— “a barbaric step backward to pre-civilized past.”"
By Ed Mechmann Editor’s note. This is excerpted from the “Stepping Out of the Boat” blog Mr. Mechmann writes for the Archdiocese of New York. On Monday, the United States Senate couldn’t muster enough votes to pass a bill banning infanticide. Yes, you read that correctly. A practice that in a civilized society would be …Continue reading "Defending Infanticide is now Pro-Abortion dogma"
By Dave Andrusko Today’s final post picks up on yesterday’s final post. I wrote about, on the one hand, a second-rate attempt to minimize the reality of a survey that demonstrated conclusively that the impact of horror stories about New York’s new abortion law and Virginia’s failed attempt had significantly increased the percentage of people …Continue reading "The Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act is about “the vile doctors who attempt to abort viable fetuses—and when they fail, leave the infants to die.”"
Editor’s note. Yesterday we posted excerpts from four pro-life Republican senators who spoke Monday in support of the Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act. S. 130 received 53 votes, but 60 votes were required to move the bill forward (in the jargon, “invoke cloture”). With a meager three exceptions, all Democrats voted against a measure that …Continue reading "“You can either stand with Governor Northam for infanticide, or you can protect the most vulnerable among us”—Sen. Steve Daines"
By Wesley J. Smith It’s not that Democrats support infanticide: They just aren’t against it. What other conclusion can one reach when 44 out of 47 Senate Democrats blocked the Senate from voting on a bill requiring that any baby who survives an abortion — in other words, a baby who was born — must …Continue reading "Infanticide Makes a Comeback"
By Dave Andrusko We have now reached the countdown stage. There are only four more days before the Senate is scheduled to vote whether to proceed (“invoke cloture”) on the Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act. As we come closer to Monday, let’s ponder what a refusal to allow a vote on whether to treat abortion …Continue reading "“It’s a discussion worth having”: the born-alive abortion survivor and “fourth trimester abortion”"
By Dave Andrusko There must be a special place in the House and Senate Democratic caucuses reserved for those blessed by their pro-death compatriots with the honor of saying “No!” to requests for unanimous consent so Congress can move forward to consider the Born Alive Survivors Protection Act. These champions of “women’s right” have moved …Continue reading "Unanimous consent, after-birth abortion, and the unanimity of evil"
By Wesley J. Smith Fr. Richard John Neuhaus wrote that bioethicists “professionally guide the unthinkable on its passage through the debatable on the way to becoming the justifiable until it is finally established as unexceptionable.” After the events of the last few weeks, the same could be said of liberal politicians. Infanticide was once “unthinkable.” …Continue reading "Infanticide becomes justifiable"
By Calvin Freiburger January 31, 2019 (LifeSiteNews) – Fox News primetime host Tucker Carlson devoted his opening monologue [last] Wednesday evening to Virginia Democrats’ apparent support for infanticide, leading to a firey exchange with a pro-abortion guest who refused to answer questions about the scandal. Video went viral this week from a subcommittee hearing in …Continue reading "Tucker blasts pro-abort for dodging VA Gov’s infanticide comments: ‘I think less of you’"
