Trump Slams Senate Democrats On Born Alive Bill: ‘One Of The Most Shocking Votes In The History Of Congress’

http://dailycaller.com/

President Donald Trump reacted on Twitter Monday evening after the Born-Alive Survivors Protection Act, which would have ensured that babies who survive abortions are given medical attention, failed to pass the Senate.

“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,” Trump wrote on Twitter. “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.”

The bill failed 53 to 44. The legislation would have mandated that babies born alive after an abortion would receive the “same protection of law as any newborn” and needed 60 votes to pass.

No Democratic presidential hopefuls in the Senate voted for the bill.

Republican Nebraska Sen. Ben Sasse spearheaded the effort to pass the Born-Alive Survivors Protection Act.

“Despite opposition and setbacks, despite some strange rhetoric about this bill over the course of the last week, I am hopeful in the long term,” he said Monday.

Sasse re-upped the legislation after comments from Democratic Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam. Northam has not walked back statements he made that appeared to condone infanticide and late-term abortion in January.

  1. “And just as they did not see fit to acknowledge God any longer, God gave them over to a depraved
    mind, to do those things which are not proper, being filled with all unrighteousness, wickedness, greed,
    evil; full of envy, murder, strife, deceit, malice; they are gossips, slanderers, haters of God, insolent,
    arrogant, boastful, inventors of evil, disobedient to parents, without understanding, untrustworthy,
    unloving, unmerciful; and although they know the ordinance of God, that those who practice such
    things are worthy of death, they not only do the same, but also give hearty approval to those who
    practice them.” Romans 1: 28-32
