Up to 18 Times: Congressional Democrats Block Vote on Infanticide

Jumping up to 18 total times, Congressional Democrats have blocked a vote on making infanticide illegal – again.

Representative Mike Johnson from Louisiana requested a vote on the Born-Alive Abortion Survivor Protection Act that was not recognized for a vote by the ruling chair. After having his mic muted, Rep. Johnson’s proposed bill was said to not be recognized for debate.

“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,” according to Life News.

This now makes attempt number 18 that Congressional Republican have proposed a bill that would make it mandatory to give medical attention to infants after being born – 16 times in the House and twice in the Senate.

Sounds sensible, right? Not to the Democrats.

Democrats don’t want this bill to pass because it deals with giving medical attention to babies after failed abortions. But, all the blame doesn’t need to be placed solely on the Dem’s, actually.

Big League Politics previously reported on the proposed bill:

Shouldn’t the so-called “pro-life” Republican-held chamber be the ones pushing these types of bills? One would think. It’s much easier for establishment Republicans to place the blame at the feet of Congressional Democrats instead of taking the blame for not putting their pro-life campaign platform into action.

There is plenty of outrage towards Congressional Dem’s for blocking a vote on this bill that would give medical attention to infants after being born – which is rightfully deserved – but there should be more outrage against Republicans for not being pro-life in action. Establishment Republicans are campaigning on being pro-life to get them elected yet once they earn their seat, all promises of pro-life action goes out the window.
