Congresswoman Tulsi Gabbard is perhaps one of the very few Democrat women that I can actually find common ground with. While most Democrats are busy pushing for late term abortions, Gabbard has introduced a bill to the U.S. House of Representatives that would protect abortion survivors. Rather than to be left to die, they would be ensured care after birth.
I do not think that abortion should be legal, unless absolutely medically necessary (which is not an often occurrence). However, I think allowing babies who survive an abortion to be taken care of is the LEAST they can do.
The 2020 presidential candidate proposed bill H.R. 8923 on Wednesday. If passed, it will amend the Title 18 of the United States Code “to ensure a health care practitioner exercises the proper degree of care in the case of a child who survives an abortion or attempted abortion.”
The wording and penalties involved in Gabbard’s born-alive protections bill are unavailable at this time. But shockingly, Gabbard has at points in her career held a 100% pro-abortion voting record, and voted against the Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act in 2015. However, Gabbard’s desire to see restrictions on abortion in the third trimester has earned her criticism from many in the Democratic Party, though she has not backed down from this stance.
“I think the third trimester, unless a woman’s life or severe health consequences is at risk, then there shouldn’t be an abortion in the third trimester,” Gabbard stated last October.
A previous bill, the Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act, originally sponsored by Rep. Ann Wagner, “require[d] that infants who survive an abortion attempt receive immediate medical attention,” according to a previous report from Live Action News. After efforts to pass the bill failed, members of Congress initiated a discharge petition which needed 218 signatures to force the bill to the House floor for a vote, but to date, the petition has received 205 signatures. As Live Action News noted, “The petition expires at the end of the 116th Congress session in January 2021.”
