In yet another attempt by Congressional Republicans to issue life-saving care to infants after being born, Congressional Democrats have halted a vote on the measure.
This now makes a total of 15 times the Born-Alive Abortion Survivor Protection Act has been presented and denied a vote on in Congress.
Introduced on Thursday on the House floor (for the 13th time) by Representative Rodney Davis (R-IL), the request for a vote was ruled out of order.
Rep. Davis asked for “unanimous consent that the Committee on Judiciary be discharged from further consideration of H.R. 962 the Born Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act and ask for its immediate consideration in the House.”
Life News previously reported that, “If the Democrats continue to block consideration of H.R. 962, after 30 legislative days, Republican Whip Steve Scalise (R-LA) and Rep. Wagner plan to file a motion to discharge the resolution from the Rules Committee.”
Rep. Wagner, one who originally introduced H.R. 962, is very outspoken about protecting infants after birth.
I stood with my colleagues Whip @SteveScalise, @RepChrisSmith, @RepWalorski, and many other pro-life advocates as we spoke out on the importance of voting on and passing the Born Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act so babies can receive the vital care they need to stay alive.

The disheartening reality that Congressional Democrats place no value on giving infants medical care after they are born, is very telling. Who would have thought that #EndInfanticide would ever have to be a hashtag.
