Democrats on Monday blocked an effort to pass legislation clarifying
that babies who survive attempted abortions must receive medical care.
Sen. Patty Murray, D-Wash., rejected the motion to pass the
Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act, authored by Sen. Ben

to pass the bill via unanimous consent, meaning that one senator could
stop it by objecting.
"You’re either for babies or you’re defending infanticide," Sasse said
before the vote. "That's literally what this bill is about."
