Democrats Ashamedly Refusing to Vote on Legislation to Protect Children Born Alive After Attempted Abortions

Nearly two years ago, the U.S. House of Representatives and U.S. Senate unanimously passed legislation making animal cruelty a federal crime. Yet, for years, Democrats have refused to even vote on the Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act, a bill that would simply require healthcare professionals to provide medical care for babies who are born alive following attempted abortions.

It is hard to imagine a more shameful act and a more callous disregard for the sanctity of human life. Thankfully, Rep. Kat Cammack (R-FL) is leading an effort to do something about it.

Earlier this month, Cammack filed a "discharge petition" that could force House Speaker Nancy Pelosi to bring the Act to the floor to a vote. The petition needs 218 signatures, which means five Democrats would need to join all Republicans in signing the petition.

Pray for God to work in the hearts of our representatives, and that He would compel them to sign the petition. And then contact your representatives today and urge them to do exactly that!
