House Republicans Push to Protect Born-Alive Babies

Today marks 50 TIMES that Democrats have blocked mandatory medical care for every baby born.

→ New York’s state legislators passed a bill that would allow for the abortion of babies up to the very moment of birth and removed existing protections that required babies to receive mandatory medical care if they were born alive after an abortion.

→ Virginia Democrats introduced similar legislation, and their Governor went even further, saying it was ok to kill a baby even in the minutes after delivery.

 Republicans in Congress said enough is enough and have tried to introduce the Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act, which would outlaw and penalize infanticide in the United States. There’s just one problem. Democrats won’t even allow an up or down vote. So Republicans have been asking for a vote every day that the House of Representatives is in session.

We are using every legislative tool in our disposal to protect life.
