JUST IN: Senate Democrats BLOCK bill to protect baby born ALIVE from abortion….and here’s how they VOTED

In another disgusting show, Senate Democrats again blocked a bill that would protect a baby born alive from an abortion, or any other circumstance for that matter.

The vote today wasn’t on the bill specifically, but on allowing the bill to proceed from debate to the floor for an actual vote. The Senate was voting to invoke cloture.

60 votes are needed to invoke cloture, but only 53 could be obtained. Three of the 53 votes were Democrats:

  1. Casey (D-PA)
  2. Jones (D-AL)
  3. Manchin (D-WV)



You might be wondering if any Republicans voted with the Democrats, against cloture? The answer is NO.

HOWEVER…

There were three Republicans that didn’t vote at all:

  1. Cramer (R-ND)
  2. Murkowski (R-AK)
  3. Scott (R-SC)

Three more Republicans wouldn’t have been enough to invoke cloture, so their absence for whatever reason was inconsequential.

In any event, almost every Democrat and Independent Democrat chose to block the bill. Only three, who are in red states, voted for cloture.

Given how many liberal states are moving to radical extremes on abortion, this is no surprise. But it shows, as these radical abortion laws do, just how radical Democrats have become all across the country.

The scum who voted against this are just a reflection of the scum that voted them in. We’re quick to tear apart elected officials who pull this crap, but remember, they are there to represent the citizenry who elected them. All the more why the country needs to split.

Considering that 81% of voters disagree with 3rd term abortion , id say this vote doesn’t represent their states.

The failure of this bill only points out the truth of those who fought abortion from the beginning. They knew that the Dems claim that all they wanted was for it to be “safe, legal and rare wasn’t true. This is where that slippery slope led. To allowing babies to be abandoned to die.

“Unplanned” In theaters everywhere March 29th. Read about why it was given an “R” rating and be encouraged with the producers recommendations.

Yes, Joy, this is a must see movie. The R rating was given to discourage people from going who don’t go to R rated movies. Glenn Beck and Steve Deace were discussing this movie because they screened it together and both said it would definitely change the discussion about abortion. It is a true story and shows the abortion industry for what it is.

I guess the question is will the Republicans do the right thing and excercise the nucler option and only require 51 votes to pass the bill?

If they do not then IMHO they will be just as complicant as the Democrats. Kind of like they were all upset over PP selling baby body parts then would not stop their funding.

Getting kind sick of these poiticians that want to score political points while they are legally allowed to slaughter the most innocent amoung us.

If this is not worth pulling the nuclear option, what is?

I would not call PA a red state….it has not reliably voted republican in probably forty years. Casey, ran on being his fathers son, his father was catholic and pro-life, a democrat but pro-life. Manchin is the closest you are going to get to a blue dog democrat, because it works for keeping him elected in WV. Jones is from Alabama, he votes against this bill and the people of Alabama likely string him up…lol

And they must remember that this grew from a Democrat promise that all they wanted was for abortion to be safe, legal and rare.

” Between 1970 and 2015, CDC reports nearly 45.7 million legal induced abortions.”

I think Republicans need to pounce on this and clearly educate the public that Democrats are fine with murdering babies. They are all murderers. And people need to know just exactly how far they will go to maintain power. Because I don’t think most people want to give power to people with no conscience at all.

Abortion failed

Baby is born alive

Baby is breathing

Baby is crying

But Baby is killed

That is murder there can be no other word for it. It must be reported and the media isn’t going to do it. The RNC has got to step up.

This new system does not allow formatting… irritating. I like the other one better.

First of all, that is such an adorable baby girl. Second, this just further corroborates that the democrats are the party of progressivist communism and murder and, clearly, they are all fine with that. You truly have to be mentally ill or evil to vote democrat. Many RINOs also fit into that category.

This was Ben Sasse’s bill. He has made the TV and radio rounds making the point that, even though he is 100% pro-life, this was not about abortion but strictly about infanticide, about babies born alive.

In other words, even pro-choice Dems still could have voted for this without compromising their position on Roe v Wade, but the Hard Left has such a tight hold on them even this was too much for them.

Thank you Sen Sasse for putting them on the record, the country needs to know how disgusting this is and how evil the Dems have become.

Love this site, really do, but it is not abortion. First and foremost, abortion is just a sanitized way of saying Murder, to make it more acceptable for the left. Secondly, even more so, it is even more outrageous to use their language in calling it abortion when referring to a baby who has already been born alive.

It is MURDER, they are advocates for murder. They now want the right to perform murder on an innocent baby, whether or not that baby is inside or outside of the womb. They want murder, on demand at any time. Except for criminals who deserve the death penalty, for them they want compassion.

They are sick and deserve far worse than I would be able to say without going overboard. They are evil.
