210 Democrats Oppose Law That Requires Care for Babies Who Survive a Failed Abortion Attempt

Nearly every Democratic House member voted against a bill that would require medical help for babies born alive during a botched abortion attempt.

The House passed the Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act, with 210 Democrats opposing the measure.

The only Democrat to vote "no" to the legislation was Texas Rep. Henry Cuellar. One other Democrat, Texas Rep. Vicente Gonzalez, voted "present."

"We all know in 2019, then-Gov. Northam of the state of Virginia stated this: 'The infant would be delivered, the infant would be kept comfortable, the infant would be resuscitated if that's what the mother and the family desired, and then a discussion would ensue between the physicians and the mother,'" said Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH).

"The cavalier attitude he displayed towards human life is just wrong," Jordan said. "It is simple. Infants born alive following an abortion are kids, are children. All newborns deserve the same level of care."

House Democrats were not alone in speaking out against the bill. Vice President Kamala Harris also referred to the legislation as an "extreme" action that opposes reproductive rights.

"House Republicans passed an extreme bill today that will further jeopardize the right to reproductive health care in our country," she tweeted.

"This is yet another attempt by Republican legislators to control women's bodies," she added.

Both former House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) and Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) also spoke out against the measure.

The message was clear that Democrats support even the most extreme abortion laws that would allow ending the life of a child after it is born alive during a botched abortion.
