Rabidly Pro-Abortion Dems Kill 20-Week Abortion Ban

Democrats and two Republicans join forces with China and North Korea, thus failing to protect unborn children.

Even with two-thirds of Americans supporting a ban on abortions after 20 weeks, the Senate fell short of passing the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act, which the House passed earlier this month. The Senate version, which needed 60 votes thanks to a Democrat filibuster, failed 51 to 46. Two Republicans — Susan Collins of Maine and Lisa Murkowski of Alaska — joined the majority of Democrats in opposing the legislation, while three Democrats — Joe Manchin (WV), Bob Casey Jr. (PA) and Joe Donnelly (IN) — broke ranks to side with Republicans. We’ll note too that Collins and Murkowski are almost solely responsible for defeating Republican efforts at ObamaCare repeal. With “friends” like these…

The bill sought to ban late-term abortions based on the scientific data showing that fetuses can feel pain beginning at 20 weeks of gestation. But when it comes to the sanctity of life, Democrats are rabidly pro-abortion, shunning both morality and science. By rejecting this measure the U.S. remains one of only seven nations world-wide that continue to allow the barbaric practice of elective late-term abortions. Other nations include the likes of North Korea, China and Vietnam, while only one European nation is found on the infamous list, the Netherlands.

While Democrats and their cohorts in the Leftmedia love to rant and rave about the supposed problems of social inequality and injustice, they simultaneously viciously guard the greatest form of injustice currently being perpetuated in the nation today — the mass murder of millions of unborn children. While demanding rights and protections for those children brought into this nation illegally, Democrats have no room in their hearts for standing up for lives, rights and protections for the unborn.
