This is not satire, this actually happened. It is truly staggering and deeply concerning to hear the absurdity of the claims made by certain members of the Democratic party regarding the Born Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act. This legislation, passed by the Republican-led House of Representatives, mandates that every infant who survives an abortion must be immediately offered medical care in an attempt to save the child’s life.
However, Congressman Jerry Nadler from New York made the preposterous assertion that providing medical care to a child who has survived an abortion would somehow endanger their life. He stated that “the problem with this bill is that it endangers some infants by stating that that infant must immediately be brought to the hospital.” This claim is not only unfounded but also an insult to the value of human life and the sanctity of every individual’s right to live.
Similarly, Jan Schakowsky from Illinois made the outrageous statement that the bill would be dangerous for the unborn child, who is currently laying on the table bleeding to death from the botched abortion. I feel like I shouldn’t even have to say this, but this claim is not only patently false but also deeply troubling and demonstrates a disturbing disregard for the lives of innocent infants.
It is truly baffling to hear such baseless and absurd claims being made by elected officials. Offering medical care to a child who has survived an abortion is not only the morally just thing to do, but it is also necessary to ensure that every human life is given the opportunity to live. To suggest otherwise is not only ridiculous, but it is also an affront to basic human dignity. Further, all those Evangelicals who’ve argued over the years that voting is morally neutral ought to retract their position and repent.
