19 times House Democrats have blocked a vote on the Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act

19 times House Democrats have blocked a vote on the Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act
On February 25, pro-abortion Senate Democrats were able to block a vote on the Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act (S. 130) sponsored by Sen. Ben Sasse (R-Neb.) (pictured). While proponents prevailed 53-44, that was seven votes short of the 60 votes necessary to move forward (“invoke cloture”).

Meanwhile in the House, controlled by pro-abortion Democrats led by Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-Ca.), Rep. Ann Wagner (R-Mo.) introduced H.R.962, the Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act on February 5.

H.R.962 would require that a child born alive after an attempted abortion receive appropriate treatment and be transferred to a hospital.

On every legislative day since the introduction of H.R. 962, a different Member has asked for the House to consider H.R. 962. “19 times, House Republicans have tried to pass the Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act, a bill that would rescue children who survive a botched abortion,” said House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) “19 times, House Democrats have blocked legislation to save these survivors. This is about saving lives, and any child who survives an abortion should have an opportunity for life.”
