It’s no surprise that the Democrats would defend barbaric practices like allowing babies born alive in botched abortions to die. But it’s still sickening and wrong.
Fortunately, the Republican-controlled House of Representatives recently passed two abortion-related bills that protect the lives of babies born in botched abortions. But the left’s response was predictable: Fake News MSNBC’s Stephanie Ruhle was outraged.
“Tonight we are getting a much clearer picture of how Republicans are planning to lead the House in the 118th Congress,” Ruhle said with obvious disdain on her Wednesday night program. “The Republican Party may have won control by campaigning on kitchen table issues like inflation and crime, but tonight, they used the power of their majority to pass two abortion related bills.”
Ruhle went on to complain that the born alive legislation “punishes doctors for denying care to babies who survive an abortion attempt.”
“No House Republicans voted against either of these bills,” she added with palpable disgust.
Ruhle then aired comments from House Majority Whip Steve Scalise which she called “deeply misleading”:
“The babies born alive outside the womb in some states, they actually are allowing that baby to be killed and calling it abortion, it’s murder and yet it’s legal in some states.”
Ruhle angrily dismissed Scalise’s remarks: “Nope! For fact’s sake that is not true,” she said. “There is no state that allows any doctor to kill a newborn baby. What you just heard is a lie used to promote laws that curb abortion.”
Of course, the truth is that babies born alive from botched abortions are being killed in some states. According to Life News, thirty-four babies were born alive and possibly left to die from botched abortions between 2020 and 2022 in just seven states. That data doesn’t include New York which shockingly allows babies born alive from botched abortions to die.
So why does Ruhle apparently oppose a law preventing the killing of a newborn?
The answer is simple. Ruhle and her ilk are more concerned with defending the right to abortion than they are with protecting the most innocent among us.
Thankfully, the House of Representatives has taken a stand against these atrocities. It’s time for all decent, freedom-loving Americans to stand up for the rights of the unborn and put an end to this culture of death.
