Planned Parenthood, NARAL and Dem senators cheer defeat of Born Alive Survivor’s Protection Act

On Monday afternoon, the Senate voted on Sen. Ben Sasse’s Born Alive Survivor’s Protection Act. Unfortunately, it was defeated by a 53-44 vote.

The bill would’ve provided protection for babies who survived botched abortions, requiring medical attention. 

Every Republican supported the measure, except for Alaska Sen. Lisa Murkowski who did not vote on it.

Three Democrats crossed the aisle and voted in favor of the bill, including Doug Jones of Alabama, Joe Manchin of West Virginia and Bob Casey Jr. of Pennsylvania. Every other Democrat voted against it and stood for infanticide, including 2020 presidential candidates Harris, Booker, Gillibrand, Warren, Klobuchar and Sanders.

Following the vote, several organizations and elected officials actually cheered the failure of the bill.
