ALERT: US Senate voting today on bill to stop infanticide of born-alive babies
he United States Senate will vote Monday evening on legislation to guarantee medical care to babies who survive failed abortions, following multiple Democrat attempts to block the measure.
Under the current federal Born-Alive Infants Protection Act, babies who survive abortions are recognized as “human beings,” “persons,” “individuals,” and “children” with all the rights those terms entail, but specific treatment for them isn’t mandated. The Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act would supplement existing law by specifically requiring abortionists to get such babies to hospitals.
Originally introduced in 2015, the legislation was brought back this year in response to an interview in which Virginia Democrat Gov. Ralph Northam defended the prospect of letting a disabled or “non-viable” infant die after a failed abortion attempt, for which he later said he had no regrets.So far, Democrats have blocked six attempts in the U.S. House and Senate to pass the bill by unanimous consent,
under which a bill automatically passes if no senator objects. This evening, the bill is scheduled for floor consideration and a roll-call vote in the Republican-controlled Senate.
