US Senate bill banning infanticide fails, despite majority support
A majority of the United States Senate voted again Tuesday to ban late-term abortions and mandate medical care for infants delivered alive after failed abortions, though Senate filibuster rules once again prevented either measure from passing the chamber.
The Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act, sponsored by Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-SC, would prohibit most abortions starting at 20 weeks (or five months) into pregnancy, by which point science indicates preborn babies are capable of feeling pain. The Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act would require abortionists to transfer infants who survive abortions to hospitals, where they would be given the same degree of care as any wanted newborn.
The Senate voted 53-44 for the 20-week abortion ban, and 56-41 for the anti-infanticide measure. Both needed 60 votes in order to pass....
1. Majority of Senate voted for bill, but minority of Senate keeps bill from passing. This needs to be shown to any Christian who does not like to get involved in politics because it is very divisive and even conflictive. I guess that means they cannot stand against abortion or sodomites because some people would disagree with them, and some of those even get violent (see antifa for examples). 2. God's Plan for Women is being neglected, while the Religion of Today--Women's Rights--is upheld. The reason why so many Christians and their churches are ineffective in today's society is that they themselves do not believe the Bible, so they do not live according to it, especially in simple things like what Paul tells Timothy (1 Timothy 5)what elder women should be doing with their lives (and this was way before the idea of pensions, Social Security, and IRA accts were ever considered). So pagans who see Christians behaving just like them must ask themselves, 'what is the big difference between me and them?' and the answer is, 'not much, they say they are 'saved' but they don't live any way different, except a few changes to their weekly schedule.
