Babin Responds to Senate Democrats’ Refusal to Prevent Infanticide

"It’s truly shameful that the majority of Senate Democrats do not seem to care about protecting our nation’s most vulnerable."
 
Texas Insider Report: WASHINGTON, DC – U.S. Congressman Brian Babin (TX-36) released the following statement after Senate Democrats blocked a pair of pro-life bills from passing last night, including the Born-Alive Survivors Protection Act which would allow infants who are born after an attempted abortion to receive life-saving medical care.
 
“To say I’m disappointed with yesterday’s Senate vote is an understatement,” said Babin. “Protecting innocent babies born alive after a botched abortion should never be a difficult or partisan vote. It’s truly shameful that the majority of Senate Democrats do not seem to care about protecting our nation’s most vulnerable.
 
“We have a moral obligation to stand in defense of those who cannot yet defend themselves. While Democrats continue to ignore this serious issue, I will not stop fighting to end infanticide and protect the sanctity of every human life.”
 
Background Information:
 In the House of Representatives, 204 members – including all House Republicans and three House Democrats – have signed a discharge petition to force a vote on the Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act.
 
Since its introduction, House Republicans have tried a total of 80 times to bring this bill up for a vote under a unanimous consent request, only to be blocked by Speaker Pelosi and House Democrats.
 
According to a recent poll, 77 percent of Americans support legislation to ensure that a baby who survives a failed abortion is given the same medical treatment as any other baby born prematurely at the same age.
