While the media heaves a huge sigh of relief that Joe Biden is president and abortion is back in favor, they are continuing their tradition of utterly ignoring how ghoulish the abortion industry has become. Gone are the days of abortion as a “necessary evil” (which would, they seem to have noticed, still grant that abortion is an evil). And gone are the days when they opposed late-term abortion and attempted to align their position with the morally ambiguous ebb and flow of public opinion.
Now, it is all abortions, throughout all nine months of pregnancy, with no apologies or excuses. If mommy wants a dead baby, she gets a dead baby — because she said so, that’s why.
There have been two recent proofs of this. First has been the failure — yet again — of the Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act to pass in the Senate. The act was proposed as an amendment to the 2021 Budget Resolution. In a vote on February 4 it failed after 48 Democrats voted to block it. All GOP senators, as well as Democratic senators Joe Manchin of West Virginia and Bob Casey Jr. of Pennsylvania voted for it.
