BIG: Senate to Vote on Monday to Stop Infanticide
In yet another attempt to stop the killing of babies after they are born, the Senate has scheduled a vote to make infanticide illegal on Monday.
“Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell has scheduled a Senate vote on the Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act (S. 311). A vote on the bill, which is being sponsored by Sen. Ben Sasse (R-Neb.), is expected on February 25,” according to Life News.
This will be the eighth total time that the bill has been proposed in Congress. Being proposed six times in the House and once in the Senate, each attempt has been shot down by Congressional Democrats.
Big League Politics reported about the proposed Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act:
“The proposed Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act, would ‘prohibit a health care practitioner from failing to exercise the proper degree of care in the case of a child who survives an abortion or attempted abortion.’ Meaning, the infant would have to be rushed to a hospital after being born alive from a botched abortion.”
The previous attempt to pass the bill in the Senate was proposed by Sen. Ben Sasse from Nebraska, who avidly seeks to protect the unborn. Sen. Sasse’s request for a unanimous vote to make murder illegal was quickly shot down by abortion advocate Sen. Patty Murray, who believes that infanticide is a woman’s “right”.
Republicans scheduled a show vote on *another* bill attacking women’s rights & health—which leading medical groups have said should never become law. Democrats will stand w/ women, doctors, nurses, & everyone who truly cares about women’s health & rights & make sure it doesn't.

In an interview with Family Research Council, Sen. Sasse explains his reasoning for sponsoring the bill:
“This bill is not actually about abortion. This is about a baby that has survived an abortion, and is born alive, and is on that table, cold, fighting for life, and crying out. And it’s about the practice that’s known as ‘backing away,’ where the abortion provider simply backs away from the table and leaves the baby to die from exposure and the elements.”
“On Monday night, you’re actually going to have a chance to see the United States Senate vote–individual senators–put their money where their mouth is and see if they’re actually going to stand with the little guy, because the little guy is that little guy or gal on that table fighting for life.”
