The Point

The Point: An Albatross Around Their Necks

Last week, I told you why Senate Democrats killed the Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act, which would require doctors to give survivors of abortions appropriate medical care. Today, I want to tell you what we need to do about it. Among the senators who voted it down were Democratic presidential hopefuls Bernie Sanders, Kamala Harris, Cory Booker, and Elizabeth Warren. The move left many people wondering: Are progressives in favor of infanticide—the killing of babies after birth? I thought they supported the right to terminate a pregnancy, not the right to terminate a newborn! This horrifying vote needs to become an albatross around the neck of every senator responsible. From now on in congressional and presidential debates, whenever the topic of abortion comes up, pro-lifers should remind everyone that these senators voted against protections for newborn babies. We need to make them own this one.
