Help Republican House Challenge Democrats to Vote on Bill Protecting Babies Born Alive After Failed Abortions
February 14, 2019
Republican members of the House are doing something extraordinary for the unborn.
Last evening, Congresswoman Jackie Walorski (R-IN) hosted a “Special Order” on the floor of Congress. This is an hour of special speeches focused on a topic of importance. And the topic was the need to protect babies from being killed by late term abortion and even after they are born following a failed abortion.
Before leading the special order, Rep. Walorski urged a vote on the bill, H.R. 962, the “Born Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act," that would require that babies born after a failed abortion be given appropriate medical care.
For the last five days, other Republican Representatives have introduced the same action (called “Unanimous Consent”), but
The Democrats have blocked it.
They don’t even want a debate, much less a vote, on protecting these babies. As one Representative during the Special Order asked,
“Since when has murder become a partisan issue?”
Well, for the next 25 days, this call to vote on this bill will be introduced again and again, each day. Let’s see if the Democrats block it every day.
The Democrats will get away with doing that only if this whole matter stays hidden, secret, and behind the scenes. That’s why I’m writing to you. Help me bring attention to it!
I’m asking our Priests for Life family to watch the speeches that these pro-life Republican Representatives gave, and then to share them with others.
I’d also like you to do what we are doing here at Priests for Life, and that is to send a Tweet thanking all of these elected officials who are determined not to let the Democrat-controlled House turn our nation into one that embraces infanticide.

And please share this email with as many others as you can who may be interested in taking this action!
