Claiming that infanticide is a "woman's right," House Democrats wouldn't even allow the bill, known as the "Born Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act," to be heard on the floor – much to the chagrin of Representative Tom Cole, a Republican from Oklahoma and the man who asked for a vote to at least be considered, as well as many of his Republican colleagues.
If passed, the "Born Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act" would ultimately prohibit health care practitioners "from failing to exercise the proper degree of care in the case of a child who survives an abortion or attempted abortion." Babies born alive following a botched abortion would thus have to be rushed to a hospital and saved – something that Democrats do not want to see happen.
"This is the sixth time Congressional Democrats thwarted an attempt by Republicans to vote on a bill that would provide medical care and treatment for babies who provide survived failed abortions – six times in the House and once in the Senate," Life News is reporting about the situation.

As it currently stands under the "Born-Alive Infant Protection Act," passed back in 2002, children who survive abortions are already legally defined as "human beings," "persons," "individuals," and "children." But nowhere in this law are there specifications as to what should medically happen to said human beings, persons, individuals, and children when they survive an unsuccessful abortion.
Republicans in Congress have tried and tried to amend this lacking bill with new legislation provisioning protections for the just-born, but have repeatedly encountered fierce opposition from Democrats who've made it clear that they want to see babies murdered even after they've already left the womb.
"I'm leading a series of speeches on the House floor to call for protections for infants born alive after failed abortions," tweeted Indiana Representative Jackie Walorski, the Republican who thus far has introduced the proposed new legislation a total of five separate times.
In a response tweet just days later, Washington Senator Patty Murray, a Democrat, referred to these repeated attempts by Republicans to save the lives of newborn babies rather than murder them an "attack" on "women's rights & health."
"... leading medical groups have said (it) should never become law," Murray says about proposals to protect the newly born.
"Democrats will stand w/ women, doctors, nurses, & everyone who truly cares about women's health & rights & make sure it doesn't," she added.
But Republicans have promised to never give up on trying to get this or some other similar bill to protect the newly born passed and signed into law – even if it takes more aggressive action.
"In the Democrat-controlled House, Rep. Ann Wagner and House Minority Whip Steve Scalise plan to file a discharge petition to force a vote, under which it will receive a vote regardless of leaders' opposition if it gets the signatures of least 218 House members, a simple majority," reports Life Site News.
House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy has also promised to never give up the fight for protecting human life, stating that, "If the Democrats object, we'll ask again, and again, and again because it is just right."
