Senators have a choice: Where will they draw the line on murder?
Washington, D.C.: The Senate is expected to vote tomorrow on two bills — The Pain Capable Unborn Child Protection Act (S. 3275) and the Born Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act (S. 311).
“Both of these bills are straightforward and will give senators a chance to clearly put themselves on the record when it comes to protecting American lives,” said Ed Martin, president of Phyllis Schlafly Eagles. “The Born Alive act shouldn’t even require discussion. No civilized, moral people should even contemplate whether a baby who is born may or may not be killed at the discretion of parents or doctors. That is murder — plain and simple. Even according to their own supposed standard of ‘safe, legal, and rare,’ every single Democrat should vote for this life-saving act. Those who would murder a child lying on the table shortly after birth, as Virginia Gov. Northam would, are monsters who themselves are not fit to have influence in our society.”
Martin continued: “The Pain Capable act ought to be another easy, science-backed vote. Evidence has long pointed to the fact that children in utero can feel pain at 20 weeks post fertilization. This excruciating pain can be felt by the child during the vile practice of late-term abortion, which even most who identify as ‘pro-choice’ have historically rejected.”
It’s time for the Senate to stand up and be counted. It’s time to see where they will draw the line on protecting future generations of Americans from grotesque and inhumane practices. Every senator is without excuse not to vote YES tomorrow on the Pain Capable Unborn Child Protection Act and the Born Alive Survivors Protection Act.
