Ethics Villains: House Democrats

Is there any political issue in American history that was more corrupting than abortion rights? Based on last week’s House vote on the Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act, I don’t think so.

The bill stated that any infant born alive after an attempted abortion is a “legal person for all purposes under the laws of the United States.” Doctors would be required to care for those infants as a “reasonably diligent and conscientious health care practitioner would render to any other child born alive.” How could anyone who doesn’t endorse legalized infanticide oppose that measure? [You can read the whole bill here.]

Yet the bill only narrowly passed, 220-210, because every Democrat except two voted “no.” (We all know that the Democratic Senate will block passage anyway.)  Only one Democrat, Rep. Henry Cuellar of Texas, voted for the bill with one other Democrat, Rep. Vicente Gonzalez of Texas, courageously voting “present.” All of the rest, totally in thrall to the most extreme pro-abortion activists, want doctors to have the option of dashing out the brains of a living new-born who has survived an abortion against the nearest wall. Don’t think they won’t: doctors who botch abortions get sued. But hey, no baby, no problem!According to the CDC, at least 143 babies were born alive after botched abortions between 2003 and 2014 in the U.S., though there probably were more…those walls, you know. The Democrat ghouls who want live babies to remain killable babbled gibberish while explaining their votes. Rep. Gerald Nadler (D-NY), argued,  “The problem with this bill is that it endangers some infants by stating that that infant must immediately be brought to the hospital. It directs and mandates certain medical care, which may not be appropriate, which maybe endanger the life of an infant in certain circumstances.”

How could the same care any “reasonably diligent and conscientious health care practitioner would render to any other child born alive” be inapparopriate? Oh, right, the appropriate care is “wall meet head” and, “Yes, madam, your abortion went smoothly.” Nadler’s line was obviously the best the party could come up with, because it was repeated in slightly varying forms by all the Democrats who spoke against the bill, including Nancy Pelosi.

Jan Schakowsky (D-Ill.) was typical. “[This bill] requires immediately taking a struggling baby to a hospital,” she siad. “That hospital could be hours away and could be detrimental to the life of that baby. This is nothing more than part of the effort to make abortion illegal nationally in this country. I object, and I urge a no vote.”

Wait: how does a law requiring live-born babies not to be killed make abortion illegal? Never mind: the Democrats know they have no ethical arguments but that their constituency wants 100% guaranteed no-baby abortions on demand. New House Minority Leader Hakeem Jeffries claimed  that the bill would lead to “government-mandated pregnancies.” Oh, right: “The Handmaiden’s Tale” again.

Jeez, get some new material, guys.

I don’t know how these people can sleep at night.

  1. I doubt they lose any sleep over it. They’ve convinced themselves the baby isn’t a person while in the womb so being born alive during a botched abortion is just a matter of inconvenient timing.

  2. It seems to me that the Democrats are even more radcially pro-abortion today than in the 1990’s.

    Here is a pro-abortion argument I found in the comments section of a Reason article.

    THE “LYING LOTHARIO” PROBLEM: Well, a lot of pro-lifers are men, and I would bet that even those pro-lifers who are women? Very few of them have found themselves in the following shoes: Lying Lothario endlessly says “Love ya, babe, Love-ya, Love-ya, Love-ya, NOW can I get down your pants?” After she falls for him and he gets her pregnant, the abuse (from him) begins, and she finds out that he has 7 other “Love-ya, Babe, my One and Only” babes on the side, 4 of them also pregnant by him! So abortion is “veto power” against scumbucket men. If these behavioral genes get passed on and on, humans will evolve into something like elephant seals, where the men most skilled at lying and fighting off the other lying men, get a harem of 40 babes, and the rest of the men get nothing (other than caring for the resulting babies)! So abortion is empowering women to fight off this sort of thing… And reserve their baby-making powers for men who are less lying scum, and will actually make good fathers to the children. (Hershel Walker is THE Hero of the Lying Lothario these days!)So they want to “capitally punish” the “offenders” (abortion-providing doctors, so as to “dry up” the sources for safe abortions), while they have never been in the above-described (lied-to female) shoes! Willfully blind self-righteousness, basically…

    Or maybe some of the anti-abortion men fantasize and lust after being the elephant-seal-like men who can gather the baby-making powers of a harem of 40 lied-to women, under the new scheme of things?

    I am glad that SOME you oppose theft. Theft by deception is also theft; I hope you can see that! When a severely lying Lothario-type dude (as described above) appropriates the baby-making powers of a deceived young woman, that, too, is theft! Abortion is anti-theft, when a deceived woman no longer wants to rent out her womb to a deceptive scumbag, prospective god-awful supposed “father” of a sperm donor!

    How would you address the “Lying Lothario” argument?

    • Two thoughts:

      1. It does not paint a flattering picture of women.

      2. The logic is kind of self-indicting. Abortion allows the woman to prevent the passing in of bad behavioral genes? Like those of the idiotic women who get duped into pregnancy?

      -Jut

    • It’s a deceptive argument. The true discussion boils down to “what is the unborn?” I contend the unborn is a human and deserves all the rights and protections afforded such. How he or she came to be has no bearing on that.

  3. Unfortunately, too many Democrats live with a seared conscience and are completely immune to the concept that what they are supporting is evil. They call evil “good” and good “evil”…just as the Good Book said people would do near the end.

    I don’t believe for a second that many on the Left think abortion is wrong and simply pander to their own party’s desires. They REALLY believe it’s good and moral to butcher born children, even if they survive being butchered as unborn children.

    They have zero trouble sleeping at night. In fact, they probably wonder how those of us on the other side can sleep at night, awash in our guilt for “forcing women to get pregnant” and “mandating pregnancy.”
