Votes like this demonstrate, more than any argument we could make, the intrinsically evil nature of the pro-abortion argument. It is about killing the weak for the benefit of the strong. Just like any other mass genocide in human history.
Graham Piro – FEBRUARY 5, 2021 3:10 PM Senate Democrats defeated legislation Wednesday that would have protected infants who survive abortions. The Born Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act failed because nearly every Senate Democrat voted against the measure, which requires doctors to provide medical care for newborns who survive abortion attempts. The act received 52 votes, falling 8 short of the 60-vote threshold necessary to break the filibuster. Democratic senators Joe Manchin (W. Va.) and Bob Casey (Pa.) crossed the aisle to vote for the legislation. Sen. Ben Sasse (R., Neb.), who introduced the legislation, decried the partisan vote. “This legislation isn’t red vs. blue, it is simply about giving every baby a fighting chance. Every baby deserves care. This isn’t about abortion, it’s about human rights,” he said. Sasse has championed the bill in each legislative session since 2015. Senate Republicans have united around the legislation. The 52-vote margin marks a 4-vote decrease from 2020, when 56 senators voted for the legislation. Then-senator Doug Jones (D., Ala.) joined Manchin and Casey in voting for it along with all 53 Republican senators.Senate Democrats Defeat Legislation Protecting Abortion Survivors
