Democrat Patty Murray blocks Senate bill banning infanticide after failed abortions
Sen. Patty Murray, D-WA, blocked the unanimous passage of the Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act today, a bill which would have required doctors to provide medical care to babies born alive during failed abortions.
This was a unanimous consent vote, a mechanism under which the bill passes the U.S. Senate if no senator objects and individual senators’ positions are not recorded. Murray objected to the motion, claiming there are already laws against infanticide.
