Statement on the Blocked Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act Voice-Vote

“Sen. Patty Murray, acting on behalf of Senate Democrats, blocked even having a voice-vote on common-sense legislation that would prohibit the killing of babies who survive a botched abortion, and instead chose to stand up in favor of infanticide and the abortion lobby. This pro-death mentality is the same one that has recently moved some lawmakers to propose extremely permissive late-term abortion bills in states like New York and Virginia. The consensus among the vast majority of Americans is that abortion should be limited to – at most – the first trimester. We call on Senate Majority Leader McConnell to bring the Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act to a floor vote so that constituents know exactly where their elected officials stand on protecting the fundamental right to life.”
