Unborn babies deserve consideration

A recent bill has been introduced to the U.S. Congress to make animal abuse a federal crime. It has bipartisan support. I am all in favor of not harming animals. I am also glad the bill has bipartisan support.

What made me think, however, was why do we not have bipartisan support to make abusing preborn babies and babies that survive an abortion, a crime? The House Democrats continue for the 72nd time to refuse a request to allow a vote on Sen. Ben Sasse’s “Born Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act.”

This bill would stop infanticide and provide medical care and treatment for babies who survive abortions. I guess certain people think animals are more important than babies.
