House Democrats Once Again Block Bill Protecting Infants Born Alive After Abortion
The Democrats have lost any sense of a moral compass… House Democrats have now twice refused now to take up the Born Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act for consideration.
The House Democrats have again blocked a request by Republicans to vote on a bill that would stop infanticide.
The blatant immorality of the Democrat party is unbelievable.
Before the entire House, I asked for immediate consideration of a bill that protects infants born alive during abortions. But Democrats rejected my motion and refused to consider it. Why won’t they go on record and tell the American people where they stand on infanticide? pic.twitter.com/eaqBS17LTl

House Democrats have twice refused now to take up the Born Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act for consideration.
The measure is “designed to ensure any infant born alive after an abortion receives the same protection of law as any newborn: mandating care and instituting penalties for doctors who allow such infants to die or who intentionally kill a newborn,” according to a statement from the office of its sponsor Rep. Ann Wagner (R-MO).
House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) attempted to get the legislation considered in the House Wednesday.
“If the Democrats object, we’ll ask again, and again and again because it is just right,” he said prior to his attempt. “It’s not a partisan issue–it’s about saving lives. I think everyone can agree with that. We should solve this problem this week.”
House Minority Whip Steve Scalise (R-LA) asked for the bill to be considered again Thursday. He and McCarthy wondered on Twitter why the Democrats kept rejecting it. More
NEW: Rep. @SteveScalise just called for unanimous consent to bring up a vote on the #BornAliveAct. @RepCuellar, one of 6 Democrats who voted FOR this bill in 2018, presided over the House. Here’s what happened: pic.twitter.com/rPzQyztmB3
