GOP has plan to bypass Dems over Born Alive Act

Tuesday, April 2, 2019 | Charlie Butts (

Republicans in Congress are taking an unprecedented approach to get a vote on the Born Alive Infant Protection Act.

The bill, if passed and signed into law, would require that abortionists provide treatment for most babies born alive in abortions.

Pro-life representatives have tried numerous times in recent weeks to obtain unanimous consent to proceed on the measure but House Democrats have refused to allow the vote.

Jennifer Popik of the National Right to Life Committee explains that Republicans, now in the minority, are using a discharge petition that can force a vote when the majority party is blocking it.

“And so here we have pro-abortion Democrats, led by Nancy Pelosi controlling the House,” she says, “and they’re not allowing for a vote on this important Born Alive bill.”

The National Right to Life Committee says Americans have a right to know where their representatives stand on trying to save babies born alive in abortions or allowed to die with no care.

The discharge petition is being conducted today, April 2, but Popik tells OneNewsNow there is still time for emails and phone calls.
