In October and November 2019, the U.S. House of Representatives and U.S. Senate unanimously passed legislation making animal cruelty a federal crime. Yet incredulously, this past Tuesday, the Senate failed to pass two pieces of legislation that would have further protected the precious lives of human babies, born and unborn. The votes in both measures were almost entirely along party lines, with nearly all Republicans voting in favor and almost all Democrats voting against each of these bills.
The Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act would require health care professionals to provide medical care for babies who are born alive following attempted abortions. In other words, doctors would need to provide the same level of care for abortion survivors that they offer to other newborns. Babies, made in the image of God, who survive an attempt to end their lives should not then be left to die alone on porcelain tables. It’s sickening to think that almost all of the Senate Democrats voted against this bill with only three Democrats—Casey (Penn.), Jones (Ala.) and Manchin (W. Va.) having the moral courage to protect a newborn baby after such a barbaric act is botched. It is equally as unconscionable that three senators—Warren, Sanders and Klobuchar—would choose to remain silent when a baby’s life is at stake.
The Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act would have prohibited the majority of abortions past 20 weeks of pregnancy, in acknowledgment of scientific evidence that unborn babies are capable of feeling pain by this stage. As morally appalling, almost all of the Democrat senators voted against this bill, with only two Democrats willing to stand for these most vulnerable babies—Casey (Penn.) and Manchin (W. Va.). Sadly, in this measure, two Republican senators—Collins (Maine) and Murkowski (Alaska) also joined in voting against this life-saving legislation. The same senators—Warren, Sanders and Klobuchar—failed to vote in this measure as well.
