Chip Roy is furious with House leadership’s decision to not bring pro-life legislation up for a vote.
During a motion in the U.S. House, the Texas Congressman asked that a pro-life bill, the Born Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act, come forward for a vote.
He demanded that the Speaker bring it up “for its immediate consideration”.
Much to his dismay, the bill did not go forward.
Roy went on Twitter expressing his frustration.
He said, “For the 46th time, @HouseDemocrats refused.”
Nevertheless, the Texas Congressman re-assured his followers that he and his colleagues “will never stop fighting to save these innocent babies’ lives.”
Today, I asked for a vote on the Born Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act.
For the 46th time, @HouseDemocrats refused.

This bill addresses one of the more controversial aspects of the abortion debate. When a baby survives an abortion, doctors are expected to give it life-saving medical care. Doing otherwise, would be tantamount to infanticide. From Virginia to New York, this debate has generated enormous controversy.
Since the start of the year, Republicans in Congress have been working to sponsor legislation that would protect infants that survive a failed abortion attempt.
The Born Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act is the bill in Congress that pro-lifers are rallying around this year.
According to Congressman Kevin Brady, a sponsor of this bill, “This common-sense law would hold accountable any medical professional who withholds care to the baby while giving the mother – the second victim of abortion – the ability to bring a civil lawsuit against health care professionals who do not take appropriate actions to protect this innocent life.”
Federal Government Threatens to Defund Connecticut School Districts for Allowing Males to Compete in Female Sports
In a “letter of impending enforcement action” released on May 28, 2020, the Department of Education’s Office for Civil Rights declared that The Connecticut Interscholastic Athletic Conference violated Title IX by “permitting the participation of certain male student-athletes” in girls’ track events at several school districts.
The federal investigation was kicked off last summer and were the result of the Alliance Defending Freedom filing a complaint on behalf three female students. The Justice Department took sides with female students during the past month.
The biological females sustained that the “Transgender Participation” policy, which was first enacted seven years ago, were stripped of their rights under Title IX by allowing “boys who are male in every biological and physiological respect” compete in their sports, provided that they “claim a female gender identity.”
The CIAC policy started to yield troubling results when two biological males who identified as girls began dominating girls’ track meets. This policy is less stringent than the NCAA’s transgender policy, which mandates males to take testosterone-suppressing hormones for at least a year before participating in female sports competitions.
Three school districts violated Title IX by also participating in CIAC athletic events. “Glastonbury, Canton, and Danbury placed female student-athletes in athletic events against male student-athletes, resulting in competitive disadvantages for female student-athletes,” federal officials stated.
The athletic events in which the female student-athletes competed were coeducational; female student-athletes were denied the opportunity to compete in events that were exclusively female, whereas male student-athletes were able to compete in events that were exclusively male.
On top of that, three other districts – Hartford, Bloomfield and Cromwell – violated Title IX by allowing two biological males, Terry Miller and Andraya Yearwood, compete on female teams per CIAC policy. According to the OCR, the conference and six districts “treated student-athletes differently based on sex.”
According to Greg Piper of the College Fix, “The letter uses pseudonyms for the students but all have been previously named. The girls filed a related lawsuit in February under their real names: Alanna Smith, Chelsea Mitchell and Selina Soule.”
The conference and six districts rejected “resolution agreements” with OCR, prompting the office to issue them “letters of impasse” on March 17. These are basically warning letters. The office initially gave them 10 days to comply. They then extended the deadline by an additional 30 days as a result of “their COVID-19-related duties and responsibilities.”
At the moment, OCR will either “initiate administrative proceedings” to block federal funding for the conference and districts or hand the cases over to the Justice Department in order for it to enforce federal law.
It’s good to see athletes finally get justice.
Thanks to the Left grabbing control of so many American institutions, Americans are subjected to a wide array of politically correct experiments.
This is a solid victory which should be built upon by the Trump administration and members of Congress.
