Naming Names: Who Voted in Favor of Infanticide

By Jordan Sekulow1551141549408

Tonight, the Senate failed to pass key pro-life legislation that would have guaranteed medical care to babies who survive attempted abortions. The legislation would have effectively criminalized infanticide nationwide, required abortionists to provide lifesaving care, and ensure the surviving babies get admitted to a hospital.

Although the bill would have passed on a simple majority vote, a large pro-abortion minority in the Senate killed the bill. 44 Democrat Senators  voted against cloture on the motion to proceed for the Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act (S. 130), effectively killing the lifesaving bill.

It is unthinkable that any U.S. Senator would vote to support infanticide and allow medical care to be denied to a living, breathing, helpless human being.

It is shameful, and at the ACLJ we are naming each and every Senator who voted against this crucial bill.

Despite the measure’s failure tonight, it is heartening that it did receive a bipartisan majority of 53 votes, including 3 Democrats: Senators: Joe Manchin (D-WV), Doug Jones (D-AL), and Bob Casey Jr. (D-PA).

Yet, the Senate’s failure to support this sensible legislation is truly disheartening. This should not be a political issue. Infanticide is an issue that is literally life and death, and this bill sought to protect the most vulnerable in our society. Senator Ben Sasse, who introduced the legislation in the Senate, wrote in an op-ed, “Public officials, at all levels and in every party, should be able to condemn infanticide and come to the defense of the weakest members of our society.”

This bill should have been an easy opportunity for Senators to show Americans that they see all life as being worthy and having dignity. Yet, once again, they have failed to defend the most defenseless members of humanity. The Senate showed us tonight where they stand on this issue and we must continue to press them to stand with life at every given opportunity.

The abortion lobby has once again moved the “line” on when exactly life should be protected. The radical Left’s new litmus test has moved past “safe, legal, and rare” to supporting outright infanticide.

Here are the Senators who voted against criminalizing infanticide and protecting innocent, born-alive babies:

Tammy Baldwin (D-WI)
Michael Bennet (D-CO)
Richard Blumenthal (D-CT)
Cory Booker (D-NJ)
Sherrod Brown (D-OH)

Dianne Feinstein (D-CA)
Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY)
Kamala Harris (D-CA)
Maggie Hassan (D-NH)
Martin Heinrich (D-NM)
Mazie Hirono (D-HI)
Tim Kaine (D-VA)
Angus King (I-ME)
Amy Klobuchar (D-MN)
Patrick Leahy (D-VT)
Ed Markey (D-MA)
Bob Menendez (D-NJ)
Jeff Merkley (D-OR)
Chris Murphy (D-CT)
Patty Murray (D-WA)
Gary Peters (D-MI)
Jack Reed (D-RI)
Jacky Rosen (D-NV)

Tom Udall (D-NM)
Chris Van Hollen (D-MD)
