Statement from Jeanne Mancini on the Born-Alive and Pain-Capable Senate Votes
I applaud Senators Sasse and Graham for sponsoring, respectively, two important pro-life bills, the Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act and the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act. These bills provide basic, necessary protections under the law for the most vulnerable in society: survivors of failed abortions and the unborn. It is deeply disappointing that some elected officials in the Senate have promised to block even legislation that mandates medical care for children who survive an abortion – an extremist view shared by all Democratic presidential candidates. While any abortion is one too many, the reality is that overwhelmingly Americans want to see greater protections for the most vulnerable and these bills are a strong step in the right direction. Thanks to the leadership of Senator McConnell, senators will have an opportunity to stand with the majority of the American people who support these crucial measures.
Jeanne Mancini, President of March for Life
