USCCB alert: Further action needed after Born Alive bill fails

February 27, 2019 by Jeff Caruso

Tell Senators Warner and Kaine you strongly disapprove of their votes against the bill

 


Last night the US Senate failed to pass the Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act (S. 311) on a vote of 53 to 44, with 3 senators not voting. In the Senate, 60 votes are needed to overcome a filibuster and pass a bill.
 
Let's be clear: S. 311 in no way restricted any woman's access to abortion, as abortion advocates claim. The bill was proposed to ensure basic medical and humanitarian care to any child who survives an abortion, a protection not sufficiently provided in federal law. 
 
Senators who voted against the bill did not stand up for "choice." Access to abortion was not at issue. Those senators have put themselves on public record as being indifferent to the pain, suffering and death of an infant who survives abortion. 
 
Please take a minute to write to Senators Warner and Kaine to express your strong disappointment in and disapproval of their votes against the Born Alive bill.

Take Action here.
 
In spite of the shocking result, we must not become discouraged. Please come voice your opposition to the extreme stance taken by Virginia’s U.S. Senators at the Virginia March for Life being held on April 3, 2019 in Richmond.  People from all over the Commonwealth will be attending to oppose the increasing threats to the unborn in Virginia.   For more information email Felicia@vacatholic.org.
