U.S Senate Democrats were able to block the Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act which would protect babies who were born alive despite an attempted abortion. Both Minnesota US Senators Amy Klobuchar and Tina Smith voted to block this legislation.
Tina Smith spoke on the Senate Floor in opposition to legislation preventing infanticide saying that providing medical care for babies would be “inappropriate medical treatment”
A poll that was released this month by a woman’s group Susan B. Anthony list showed that 77 percent of voters support the ensuring that a baby who survives and an abortion attempt receives medical care.
Susan B. Anthony President Marjorie Dannenfelser quickly condemned Democrats for blocking the popular measure.
“Today’s vote exposes beyond all doubt the modern Democratic Party’s extreme agenda of abortion on demand through the moment of birth and even beyond – a deeply unpopular position even within their own rank and file,” said SBA List President Marjorie Dannenfelser. “An overwhelming majority of voters are horrified by infanticide and want Congress to protect babies born alive during failed abortions. But when forced to take a position on the record, not a single one of the top Senate Democrats running for president in 2020 could muster the basic decency to outlaw infanticide.
National Republican Congressional Committee also released a statement asking Minnesota Democrats Angie Craig, Dean Phillips, and Collin Peterson to publicly state if they agree with Senator Tina Smith.
