Meghan McCain Doesn’t Let 2020 Dems Who Blocked Abortion Bill off the Hook: ‘Party of Infanticide?’

The Senate Democrats blocked a resolution on Monday that would have guaranteed babies born after a failed abortion protection, drawing criticism from “The View’s'” Meghan McCain on Tuesday as she called out the 2020 Democratic nominees for representing the “party of infanticide.”

As IJR Red reported, the Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act, which would “prohibit a health care practitioner from failing to exercise the proper degree of care in the case of a child who survives an abortion or attempted abortion,” was blocked on Monday with a vote of 53-44.

Only three Democrats joined their Republican colleagues in voting for the resolution, while others, such as 2020 contenders Kamala Harris (D-Calif.), Cory Booker (D-N.J.), Kirsten Gillibrand (D-N.Y.), Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.), Amy Klobuchar (D-Minn.), and Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.), voted to block the bill.

“The View” co-host McCain was furious during Tuesday’s show over the blocked bill, testing the Democrats’ 2020 platforms — which turned into a heated exchange with her co-hosts.

“This is an example when we’re talking about people having children and just how extreme the left as gone,” McCain said.

McCain cited a poll revealing 80 percent of Americans support abortion limited to the first three months of pregnancy. She then asked, “If Democrats want to win an election going forward, are you going to be the party of late-term abortion? The party of infanticide? Is this the platform you’re going to have?”

The co-host added she believes the 2020 Democrats are “answering” to freshman Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.), the “leader of the party” — a self-described democratic socialist who is vocal about her stance on topics.

“If you think that is how you win back the White House, I’m here to tell you I spent a lot of time in red states, I’m from a red state, that is a losing argument,” McCain said.

Co-host Sunny Hostin, who is pro-life, then tried to push back on McCain’s comments, resulting in the two talking over one another about the abortion bill.

Watch the video below:

McCain is among other Republicans, as well as President Donald Trump, who are slamming Senate Democrats for blocking the “Born-Alive” resolution.

“Senate Democrats just voted against legislation to prevent the killing of newborn infant children. The Democrat position on abortion is now so extreme that they don’t mind executing babies AFTER birth,” President Trump wrote on Twitter on Tuesday. “This will be remembered as one of the most shocking votes in the history of Congress. If there is one thing we should all agree on, it’s protecting the lives of innocent babies.”

The party has been pro-death for decades, even before Roe v. Wade. It’s simply stopped trying to hide it or their bloodthirstiness.

Are you not ignoring that the Republican party is KNOWN as the war hawks, supporters of the death penalty, and non-supporters of any action to address gun violence. When did that change?

Uh . . Phyl, we’re talking about abortion here … don’t wander off. Oh, Ok, I do see you were connected to the topic, what with you mentioning the death penalty and all.

Screw did not claim the D’s were pro-abortion. He claimed we are “pro-death.” Let me break it to you, military wars result in deaths, gun violence results in over 30,000 deaths a year in the US, and they call a sentence of execution the “death penalty.” There were 25 prisons in 8 red states executed last year.

There a lot of corrupt warhawks among the Democrats, too.

I think her point that AOC is the leader of the party is spot on.

I think it is amusing that any Republican believes they decide who is the leader of the Democrat party. What would be your reaction if Joy proclaimed Jim Jordan or Matt Gaetz leader of Republican Party?
AOC, Jordan & Gaetz, are simply members of the House who seek media attention. Like Roger Stone, they do not care if it is positive or negative attention. Leadership is not determined by who the conservative media or liberal media dislikes the most.

Did Jim Jordan or Matt Gaetz proclaim themselves THE self-anointed BOSS like AOC did her OWN, “I am the boss” quote?

Nothing beats disappointment like self-anointment. Better get some ointment on that swelled ego.

I believe that you are aware that AOC did not claim to be the boss of the Democrat Party. AOC is NOT even the boss of the House. Matt Gaetz discovered last evening WHO IS the boss of the House. Freedom caucus days of controlling the Speaker are over. He had only known Boehner and Ryan as Speaker.—An actual leader is in town.

Many politicians, many unwittingly, come to serve the Fourth Estate. Shallow people seek others’ approval, and often aren’t even aware of just how obsequious they’ve become. What more esteemed approval might one want than that of the anointed media? No, leadership is not determined, but leaders might be.

If not the leader, then the media’s anointed spokeperson. As far as those following her lead, it’s apparent that many Dims have boarded the short bus, err, GND bandwagon. e.g. Harris, Booker, Warren, etc.

The dims haven’t had an original idea in years, hence their willingness to follow aoc like lemmings right off the GND cliff.

True. Socialism, i.e. communism-lite, is from the 19th century. Global-warmism started in the early-20th. Even the race-based roots of identity politics go waaaay back.

Maybe this is all new to THEM, as frequently happens with slow learners.

It may say more about who she’s ‘leading’, who allows her to ‘lead’, than about her. There’s a divide today amongst those who’d hold themselves out as Party leaders, and it’ll get wider every day for the next year. Pelosi already had to jerk her leash though she now suspects a shock collar may have been more effective. Rank and file dems won’t follow for long as they’ll soon realize they look like ninnies.
(Some kids thought Dianne Feinstein was answerable to them; lol)

It is great to have an actual leader in the House once again. Pelosi is not Boehner or Ryan who allowed the Freedom Caucus to lead THEM by the nose.
