The Intellectual Consistency of the Pro-Choice Worldview

The Intellectual Consistency of the Pro-Choice Worldview

On his campaign trail last week, former Texas representative Beto O'Rourke, was asked a bombshell of a question from what appears to be a student. This student carefully summarizes the Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act by pointing out that the bill would have required babies who are born alive during failed abortions to be given the same level of medical care and attention aimed at saving their life, as any other baby born during a normal delivery.

Student: "Would you support this bill, that does not in any way limit abortion, it simply seeks to keep babies alive that have been born alive?"

Beto O'Rourke: "The way that I would approach your question and this issue generally is to trust women to make their own decisions about their own bodies."

Supporting Infanticide Disqualifies You From Public Office

Monday evening (02/25/19), the United States Senate voted in majority favor (53-44) of legislation that would protect the lives of babies born-alive during a failed abortion procedure. Shockingly, the Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act didn’t gain the 60 votes necessary to overcome the filibuster initiated by Democrat senators.

This proposed legislation came on the heels of the firestorm surrounding Virginia Governor Ralph Northam who publicly defended Virginia Delegate Kathy Tran's bill that would legalize abortion to point of birth. Northam went a step further though, saying that mothers and physicians should be able to have conversations about whether babies born-alive during botched abortions should be left to die or not. This is infanticide. The silence from the Democratic party following Kathy Tran’s proposed legislation and Northam’s public comments on infanticide has been deafening.
