This bill actually had nothing to do with the woman. The baby has been born and is outside of the mother. The bill would force a doctor to do what would be necessary to save the baby. All the democrats voted against this bill. So we can no longer protect the innocent and just born. Look how far left the democrats have gone.
Firstly, let me remind you all that we are talking about abortions being performed on nonviable fetuses to begin with. Let's go over, for the ignorant, exactly what that means.
non-viable fetus - It can be an expelled or delivered fetus which, although living, cannot possibly survive to the point of sustaining life independently, even with support of the best available medical therapy. Nonviable means not capable of living, growing, or developing and functioning successfully.
So you all want to keep alive an infant that can't survive. Yet another reason why our medical costs are through the ceiling in this country despite the crappy care we receive.
Then there's this: The measure seemed unrealistic from the start because medical professionals report that it's extremely unusual for children to be born during late-term abortions.
Late-term abortion is rare to begin with: Only 1.3 percent of abortions in 2015 were done at 21 weeks or later, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Over 90 percent of abortions take place at or before 13 weeks.
Leana Wen, a physician, said Monday that she was "disgusted" by Trumps remarks.
"As a mother to a one-year old, I am disgusted by [Dump's] lies that aim to stoke fear and division," she tweeted.
"The President of the United States is lying to the American people about the Sasse bill," she continued. "What [Dumpty] is saying has no basis in medicine ― or reality."
