In the most shocking vote I've ever witnessed taken by the Congress, the Stalinists Democrat Party have thrown off any pretense of being civilized, caring, empathetic, loving or law abiding. Republican Sen. Mitch McConnellcalled it a "straightforward" piece of legislation, while Sen. This bill was a political stunt based on scare tactics and misinformation and I'm glad it failed in the Senate. Democrats filibuster denied the measure, the 60 votes needed for a final vote. A similar bill passed in 2002, but the most recent one was different in a key way: It would have imposed fines and potential jail time for doctors who didn't provide care.
At pro-choice groups' urging, New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo last month signed a bill repealing a previous law that required a second doctor to be on hand for late-term abortions, so as to provide care in case an attempted abortion instead turns into a live birth. "When you're providing abortion care, this isn't something that happens", Elizabeth Nash, a senior state issues manager at the Guttmacher Institute, said in a telephone interview with CBS News Monday.
"We must call out today's vote for what it is: a direct attack on women's health and rights", said Leana Wen, president of the Planned Parenthood Federation of America, in a statement.
Ziegler also noted that standard abortion techniques have come a long way over the decades and said that the "Born Alive" bill aims to address "something that happens nearly never".
"That gives infants born at any stage of development full legal rights", she said. "The infant would be delivered".
Democrats believe the children are the future - except the ones who survive botched abortions. "As Aidan's parents we had decided that invasive procedures, like intravenous lines and a breathing tube in a one-pound body, would be pointless medical care".
Opponents of the bill said that it was unnecessary because murder, whether of a newborn or an adult, is already illegal and that the measure was meant to discourage doctors from performing late-term abortions.
Introduced by Republican state Rep. Melinda Gibbons Prunty, House Bill 5 would ban any abortion sought on the basis of the baby's race, sex, color, national origin, or disability.
"I heard six democratic speeches and I think four of them were written off the exact same talking points that had nothing to do with our bill", Says Sasse. "That's the only thing that this bill is about".
In reality, all the plainly-worded bill requires is that an infant who survives an attempted abortion be treated like any other newborn and be taken to a hospital for medical treatment. "It is, and always has been, a crime not to", Hirono said Monday.
The vote was the latest instance in which Republicans have tried to go on offense on the issue and put Democratic abortion-rights lawmakers in an uncomfortable position.
Americans are split down the middle on abortion, with 47 percent of Americans identifying as pro-life and 47 percent identifying as pro-choice, according to a Sunday Marist poll.
That shift in rhetoric was evident during Monday's debate. "The Democrat position on abortion is now so extreme that they don't mind executing babies".
Abortion has been a topic of contention nationwide for decades, ever since the Supreme Court made the Roe v. Wade ruling. "Its proponents claim it would make something illegal that is already illegal", Murray said on the Senate floor.
Despite the rarity, rhetoric surrounding third-trimester abortions reignited after NY passed legislation in January protecting abortions late in pregnancy when a woman's health is endangered.
"My colleagues across the aisle are debating a bill that's not in front of us. We must recognize that everyone has a constitutional right to life, no matter if they are one hour or one hundred years old", said Staver.
