"[Monday] Senate Democrats blocked Senator Ben Sasse’s (R-Nebr.) “unanimous consent” request to pass his Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act (S. 311). This is shocking! Urge your senators to support this bill to stop infanticide of babies born alive after failed abortions.
On the 46th anniversary of Roe vs. Wade, Governor Andrew Cuomo (D-N.Y.) began a radical abortion trend across the states by signing into law the Reproductive Health Act which allows abortion through all stages of pregnancy and removes explicit protections for babies born alive following a failed abortion. Last week, in defending a Virginia Democrat bill that allows abortion up through birth, Governor Ralph Northam (D-Va.) stated what appeared to be an endorsement of letting born alive babes die when he said: “If a mother is in labor, I can tell you exactly what would happen. The infant would be delivered. The infant would be kept comfortable. The infant would be resuscitated if that’s what the mother and the family desired, and then a discussion would ensue between the physicians and the mother.” This is unacceptable.
As a response, Sasse introduced the Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act (S. 311). Congress must pass this bill to stop abortionists from killing, harvesting organs, or denying medical care to infants born alive who survive an attempted abortion. The brutal killing of these children is something our government should not tolerate."
