The Democrats as a whole announced to the world how extreme their abortion position has become last month when they blocked Sen. Ben Sasse from bringing to the floor a bill that would protect a baby that has survived a botched abortion. That was the moment they went on record as the defenders of infanticide, and it will not soon be forgotten by any American who actually cherishes this thing we call life.
But far from running from that terrible day in Washington history, Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) is practically embracing it – not just in the blocking of legislation but in his very words.
At a press conference on Tuesday, a reporter asked Schumer, “The Born-Alive Abortion Survivor Protection Act says that a baby who survives an abortion must receive immediate medical care and be admitted to a hospital. Do you believe that denying such care constitutes infanticide?”
“You know, this issue has been brought up over and over again,” Schumer said. “It’s bogus in terms of how our Republican friends are interpreting this. Infanticide is against the law, and a woman has a right to decide what is her choice with her doctor before that moment before the child is born. So, this is all — again — fear-mongering and falsification of what is happening. Infanticide is already illegal.”
Whether it is “fear-mongering” or not may be up for interpretation, but it is absolutely not “falsification” by any stretch of the imagination.
What is false is the idea that an abortionist can leave a baby to die on a cart while we all turn a blind eye and say, “Oh, yeah, that’s fine. That’s not murder at all.” That is false. That is the disgusting Overton window that Democrats are using to – in Schumer’s own words – push the acceptability of abortion to “that moment before the child is born.” We’ve left the concept of “safe, legal, and rare” far behind in the rearview mirror. Now it’s “frequent, extreme, and, if necessary, outside the womb.”
The usual political strategy of trying to trick your opponents into going on record to advocate a policy that’s too extreme for most Americans doesn’t even work here, because Democrats are not even ashamed of their newfound abortion radicalism. In fact, they’re proud of it. Just ask Gov. Andrew Cuomo, who called for the Empire State Building to be lit up in pink after New York passed one of the most horrifying abortion expansions in history.
All we know to say is, we’re counting on you, Kavanaugh. We’re counting on you, Gorsuch. You two may be our only hope of saving this nation from an inexorable slide into pure, unimaginable evil. Hopefully, you will get your chance to alter the course of history sooner than later.
