Shameless even by the Standards of Pro-abortion Congressional Democrats

A thought experiment to end the day. Here’s a look at a POLITICO story that ran under the very telling headline, “Republicans pound abortion ‘infanticide’ message.” You don’t have to even read the story to know what Alice Miranda Ollstein’s thesis is.

Worrying about, praying over unborn children who survive abortions is just “inflammatory,” just another part of the GOP’s 2020 strategy to win the presidency and control of Congress by “pounding” on the Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Act and late-term abortions.

Nothing in the story about reverting to pre-civilized standards when nations just abandoned unwanted newborns to be eaten by dogs. (Democrats would response that is “inflammatory.”)

Nothing about how ghastly it is that the now-aborted woman and her child’s attempted slayer can unilaterally decide whether this wholly separate (and separated) human being is to be treated as would any other baby of similar gestational age.

Switch parties. If it were Democrats, would POLITICO or the Washington Post or the New York Times talk about the “amped-up focus” of Democrats on, say, impeaching the President, as POLITICO characterized the Republicans’ “amped-up focus on so-called late term abortions”? Of course not!

There would be nothing about “energizing” the Democrats’ base, although that is the entire sum and substance. We would be told, rather, that Democrats are soberly, responsibly fulfilling their constitutional duty. More from POLITICO.

“This is red meat to their base,” Sen. Mazie Hirono (D-Hawaii) said of Republicans pushing the bill. “They just continue to put out these kinds of factually wrong anti-choice amendments and bills. So we have to continue to fight back.”

Of course, there is absolutely nothing “factually wrong “about the Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Act. The inaccuracies and misdirection and out-and-out lies comes entirely from opposition Democrats who told us the bill is about abortion (it’s not) and that it could demand treatment just this side of torture (which is dishonest even by the standards of Congressional Democrats).

But, according to Ollstein, Democrats are holding fast. We talk about grotesque medical neglect of newborns, they respond how dare the Trump Administration require that Title X recipients not co-house abortion and family planning services.

The tiny fact that Title X was clearly designed as preventative family planning before the administrations of pro-abortion Presidents perverted its true mission; and that the Supreme Court has already upheld similar regulations 28 years ago is conveniently ignored.

These people truly are shameless.

We will see in 2020 whether the American people hold them accountable.

I am firmly convinced they will.
