This bill would cause great harm and potential suffering to newborns and their families by mandating a level of care in cases when God may have willed that baby to have the type of deformities or illness that it can’t survive. What monster would mandate that a baby who won’t survive anyway should be held on life support? For how long?
The assumption that doctors, nurses, midwives, families, would willfully kill a healthy baby is absolute absurdity! If Senator Sasse was a man of integrity he would be shining a light on Governor Northam’s words- that he was talking about NON-VIABLE fetuses, “in cases where there may be severe deformities...”!
Instead, Senator Sasse is using the emotional trigger of murdering babies to try to cause ACTUAL SUFFERING to non-viable (which means they won’t survive) fetuses and their parents by mandating they get care.
It’s as if someone had decided at the moment of my grandmothers death to stick a ventilator in her.
This is a heinous and evil bill that should be voted NO on by every Senator.
