Senate GOP again thwarted on bills to restrict abortion

Source: AP via MSN

WASHINGTON (AP) — Senate Democrats on Tuesday blocked a pair of Republican bills that would ban most late-term abortions and threaten prison for doctors who don't try saving the life of infants born alive during abortions.

The measures have been defeated multiple times in recent years, but Senate Republicans pushed for renewed votes to allow GOP lawmakers to make an election-year appeal to conservative voters.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell accused Democrats of bowing to “the radical demands of the far left" to “drown out common sense” and the views of millions of Americans.

"It almost defies belief that an entire political party could find cause to object to this basic protection for babies,'' the Kentucky Republican said.

3. Watch for the ads in the bible belt states.

They did this knowing it would not pass so they could tar and feather any House candidates in those states who are Democrats.

9. Fucking medically ignorant bible beating arsewipes!

Abortion after 24 weeks is generally called "premature birth." Any delivered baby that takes a breath is whisked away for heroics to save its life. That's the reality out there. Those dumb bastards in the Senate are just asking their preachers, not doctors and nurses who are in the trenches.

I've taken care of women who had late abortions, after 12 weeks, and the reasons were always tragic.

10. Simply tell Moscow Mitch tit for tat, pass our bills and we might consider yours...

and its laughable that Moscow Mitch says that the 'radical demands of the far left drown out common sense and views of millions of Americans'...not every American believes as conservatives do (this word is way overused), and the few conservatives in this country do not make the rules on how the rest of us shall live.

So, go stick it up where the sun doesn't shine, Moscow Mitch. We see right through your hypocrisy and baiting. Why don't you get back to serious governing?

11. McConnell "defies belief"

Holding pointless votes on stupid things that don't actually happen is a waste of time, especially right now.
