Bill To Ban Infantcide Fails To Pass The Senate!

The Republican controlled Senate failed to pass key pro-life legislation last night that would have guaranteed medical care to babies who survive attempted abortions. The legislation would have prevented infanticide, required  lifesaving care to be provided, and ensure that babies surviving botched abortions get admitted to a hospital.

A large pro-abortion minority in the Senate killed the bill. 44 Democrat Senators voted against cloture on the motion to proceed for the Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act (S. 130), effectively killing the lifesaving bill.

How can any Congressmen vote to support infanticide and allow medical care to be denied to a living, breathing, helpless human being?

The bill did receive a bipartisan majority of 53 votes, which included 3 Democrats: Senators: Joe Manchin (D-WV), Doug Jones (D-AL), and Bob Casey Jr. (D-PA). It's only fair to give them credit because I'm about to list the ones that opposed the bill that sought to protect the most vulnerable in our society.

Senator Ben Sasse

Senator Ben Sasse, author of the legislation in the Senate, wrote in an op-ed that, “Public officials, at all levels and in every party, should be able to condemn infanticide and come to the defense of the weakest members of our society.”

Although the bill would have passed on a simple majority vote, Senate Majority Leader, Mitch McConnell continues to operate the Senate under the "super majority rule", for some reason, which has effectively killed funding measures for the border wall, the repeal of Obamacare, a real long-term budget, and now this!

Mitch-McConnell

The radical Left’s new litmus test has moved past “safe, legal, and rare” to supporting outright infanticide. Of course, they squandered an opportunity to come together in a bi-partisan way. If they can't agree on legislation to prevent the murder of babies AFTER they are born, what will they ever be able to agree on?

Here's the list of the Senators who voted against criminalizing infanticide and protecting innocent babies born alive:
