On Monday, The Senate voted to block an abortion bill, The Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act. All but three Democrats voted against the procedural motion, denying it the necessary 60 votes to proceed. The bill would punish any doctor who fails to provide medical care to a child born alive after an attempted abortion, but opponents have argued that it represented an unjustified attack on abortion rights, preventing doctors from exercising their best medical judgment and exposing them to possible lawsuits or prosecution.
It wasn’t a shock that Mr. Trump went on Twitter Monday night to slam Democrats over the vote. He tweeted:
‘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….’
No, Mr. Trump, the GOP is so extreme that they have created a false narrative that their conservative evangelical voters can support. What is ridiculous is that this was even a proposed bill. No responsible physician is going to terminate a healthy viable life that can survive on its own outside of the womb.
Trump went on with his ugliness, saying:
‘….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.’
Once again, No, Mr. Trump you and the GOP clearly don’t want to protect the lives of innocent babies or children for that matter. Your inhumane immigration policy at the border is anything but life-giving.
Twitter wasn’t buying his load of nonsense either.
