democrats voted to allow the murder of children. Of course, they won’t call it that.
Senate Democrats on Monday blocked a Republican bill that would have threatened prison time for doctors who don’t try saving the life of infants born alive during failed abortions, leading conservatives to wonder openly whether Democrats were embracing “infanticide” to appeal to left-wing voters.
All prominent Democratic 2020 presidential hopefuls in the Senate voted down the measure, including Bernie Sanders of Vermont, Kamala Harris of California, Cory Booker of New Jersey, Kirsten Gillibrand of New York, Amy Klobuchar of Minnesota and Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts. The final vote was 53-44 to end Democratic delaying tactics — seven votes short of the 60 needed.
Three Democrats joined Republicans to support the bill — Joe Manchin of West Virginia, Bob Casey of Pennsylvania and Doug Jones or Alabama. Three Republicans did not vote, apparently because of scheduling issues and plane flight delays — including Kevin Cramer of North Dakota, Lisa Murkowski of Alaska and Tim Scott of South Carolina.
The bill stipulated:
The Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act would have required that “any health care practitioner present” at the time of a birth “exercise the same degree of professional skill, care, and diligence to preserve the life and health of the child as a reasonably diligent and conscientious health care practitioner would render to any other child born alive at the same gestational age.”
Here’s the thing. Born alive babies have Constitutional rights. I know that’s something which makes liberals wretch but it is true. The 14th Amendment:

JetBlue Airways Corporation has apologized for honoring fugitive cop-killer Assata Shakur earlier this week as part of their Black History Month display in John K. Kennedy International Airport.
Shakur, whose real name is Joanne Chesimard, has been on the FBI’s Most Wanted list for decades after escaping from prison in 1979, where she was serving out a life sentence for murdering a police officer. Shakur eventually fled to Cuba.
“Our crewmembers came together to celebrate Black History Month with a display in Terminal 5 featuring prominent individuals in history. When we learned of concerns regarding one individual, we immediately removed the poster,” a spokesperson from JetBlue Cooperate Communication told The Daily Caller.
The statement continued, “The intention was always to unite our crewmembers and customers around the importance of Black History Month and we apologize for any offense the poster may have caused.” (RELATED: CNN Commentator Praises Cop Killer Who Fled To Cuba After Escaping Prison In The 1980s)
The poster, which was first reported by Blue Lives Matter, has a picture of her and the following:
- Civil Rights activist and a member of the Black Panther Party.
- Regarded as a hero for her protests against racism and her role win the 1970s Black Liberation Army.
- Community advocate who helped the poor by organizing a free breakfast program and a health clinic.
- Became the first woman to be placed on the FBI’s Most Wanted list after escaping to Cuba from prison, where she was serving a life sentence for the 1973 murder of a police officer.
- Many people believe Shakur to be a political champion who is innocent of the criminal accusations against her.
Many anti-police organizations and activists celebrate Shakur and use her as a symbol of “resistance,” including the Women’s March and former CNN commentator Marc Lamont Hill.
