By Dave Andrusko It’s important to remember that the legislative wheel turns very slowly, but even more so when neither pro-life Republicans nor pro-abortion Democrats control both Houses of Congress. Here is an update about what is taking place vis a vis the Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act which House Democrats are doing their very …Continue reading "Your help needed to gain necessary signatures on discharge petition to move Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act to a vote"
By Dave Andrusko It was universally expected but disappointing nonetheless. Two days after Senate Bill 359 reached his desk, North Carolina Gov. Roy Cooper today vetoed a bill that would do no more than require the same treatment to an abortion survivor as would be given to any other newborn of a similar age. SB …Continue reading "North Carolina Gov. vetoes “Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act”"
By Olivia Gans Turner, President, Virginia Society for Human Life (VSHL) In response to Virginia Governor Ralph Northam’s obnoxious comments about allowing abortion survivors to be left to die, there has been a renewed push to pass the Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act through Congress. Unfortunately, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Ca.) is preventing a vote …Continue reading "Action Alert: Contact your Member of Congress about the Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act"
If successful, petition would force a vote on the Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act By Dave Andrusko This was told to me by someone who was in the House gallery on Tuesday as Members, one by one, came up and signed a discharge petition to liberate the Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act (H.R. 962 ) …Continue reading "Number of signatures on Discharge Petition up to 198"
Editor’s note. Thanks to the efforts of Republican Whip Steve Scalise (R-La.) and Rep. Ann Wagner (R-Mo.), members of the U.S. House of Representatives today were able to begin signing a discharge petition on the Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Act. The discharge petition is a tool that the minority can use to circumvent pro-abortion leadership who …Continue reading "U.S. House Members line up to sign discharge petition on Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act"
Prolife House Republican Whip Steve Scalise (R-La.) has indicated that a discharge petition for the Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act (H.R. 962) will be filed on April 2nd.

By Right to Life of Michigan “Gaslighting” is ugly. Gaslighting is when a person uses manipulative techniques to get another person to question their perception of the truth. On February 25, U.S. Senator Debbie Stabenow [D-Mi.] voted to filibuster the Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act. The bill she voted against does exactly what the bill …Continue reading "Michigan Senator Stabenow: Stop Misleading Your Constituents about the Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act!"
By Wesley J. Smith There has been much righteous criticism of the forty-four Democratic senators who thwarted a bill that would have protected babies who survive abortion from death-by-neglect and infanticide. In a nutshell, the Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act would have required simply that all born babies—whether wanted or not—be treated equally, by requiring …Continue reading "The Least of These"
By Dave Andrusko If we didn’t already have enough incentive to call our U.S. senators about voting in favor of the Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act, what took place in New York and is taking place in Arizona should remind us that Democrats have now moved pass supporting abortion through all 40 weeks of pregnancy …Continue reading "Tell the U.S. Senate: Vote YES on the Born-Alive Bill"
By Dave Andrusko As we reported last week, pro-life Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) said we should expect a Senate vote on the Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act (S. 311) on February 25. When pro-abortion Sen. Patty Murray (D-Wash.) blocked pro-life Nebraska Sen. Ben Sasse’s initial request for unanimous consent, she tweeted out the …Continue reading "Inspirational words as we approach the Senate debate on the Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act"
By Dave Andrusko Two non-surprises this week. Democrats, of course, said “No!” to requests for unanimous consent so that Congress could move forward on the Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act. Treat babies who survive abortions as you would any other baby born prematurely? They are not in the protecting babies business, unborn or born (if …Continue reading "What the Senate debate over the “Born Alive” bill will reveal"
