NYT Tries To Fact Check Trump’s Tweet on Abortion, Immediately Ends Up Backfiring on Twitter

In light of the recent fierce discussion over late-term and even post-birth abortions, Republican Nebraska Sen. Ben Sasse introduced a bill called the Born Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act, which would require doctors and medical personnel to make all efforts to save the life of a baby that survived an attempted abortion, rather than kill it or stand idly by while it died naturally.
Incredibly, that bill failed to achieve the necessary votes for passage on Monday, according to The Daily Wire, after only three Democrats joined with Republicans to vote in favor of saving an abortion survivor’s life, while 44 other Senate Democrats heartlessly voted against the measure.
In response to that grotesque and disheartening outcome, President Donald Trump excoriated Democrats in a pair of fiery tweets Monday evening, calling the left “extreme” for being in favor of “executing babies” after they had been born.
Trump tweeted, “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.”
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....


He added, “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.”

As if on cue, The New York Times set about the next day with an attempt to “fact check” the president’s outraged tweets, but that effort failed in rather stunning fashion — at least on social media.
Just scroll down through the overwhelmingly negative comments on the tweet from The Times.

Because it chips away at women’s reproductive rights, silly.
Rare, in this case, still means hundreds of times a year. It’s FAR more likely that a baby will survive an abortion than a child will die in a school shooting.

How can you work for the NYTimes and not know what Northam said, which kicked all this off?

He specifically talked about newborns being born and then a discussion on what to do with them.

This is why youre fake news.

So why exactly did we just have morons vote on a bill about this? I really want to know what kind of an animal is OK with killing babies, and why?

Don't you mean 'clump of cells' or are you admitting that many abortions are done at a late stage? Or that fetus actually means *having recognizable features of a human and all organs formed*

"rarely born alive"

I guess that's okay then! As long as they're just rarely murdered after they're already born and alive! Hopefully they're kept comfortable!

Withholding care is killing
It’s not an abortion issued - they are born
The number is irrelevant
You folks will do anything to launder for the death cult

Do doctors actively kill a baby that survives an abortion? Do they slice a spinal cord?

But the question is, would denying a baby that survives an abortion necessary medical care be the same as killing them?

Yes, it would be

Doctors let the children die, they don't strangle them to death. This is not equal to providing life saving care after a child is born alive. Which is what the Bill would have mandated. A living child gasping for breath would be required to have medical care given.

Failure to act where you have an affirmative and legal duty to act... That is the same as if they literally killed them themselves.

Perhaps the NYT could explain how an extremely similar bill was UNANIMOUSLY APPROVED back in 2002? What changed? The answer is this, Democrats moved the goalposts on what is a life. Now being completely separate from the mother is not sacred, and that life is “debatable “

And breaking spin... an illegal immigrant confined by ICE gave birth to a "stillborn premature baby".... not a fetus? Alas, if it was an American Woman choosing to abort a 40 week old LIVE creature, it becomes a "fetus"...

Interesting terminology...rarely born “alive” after abortion...so they are alive before then? Either way lives are being taken but yes, let’s try and find fault with a Trump tweet

We’re certain The New York Times is sending a reporter and photographer to her home right now to get the story.
