BREAKING: Born Alive Bill Moves In Senate

Jan 25, 2023

Yesterday, the U.S. Senate opened the door for the Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act to be voted on the Senate floor at any time. This was an unexpected move. On the heels of the March for Life and Sanctity of Life Sunday, the Senate used “Rule 14” to bypass committees and open up the Senate floor, which allows the Born Alive Act to be voted on at any moment.

While the rule does not force the Senate to vote on this bill, it does remove the need to schedule and hold committee hearings, which are commonly used to delay and even table or kill a bill.

This means the Born Alive Act is closer to a critical vote! But we still have so much work to do.

There are many jurisdictions in the U.S. in which it is legal for babies to be murdered even if they are born alive. We urgently need to pass the federal Born Alive Act (HR 26). Make your voice heard in the halls of Congress, demanding justice for these children. — Mat

Groups like “Shout Your Abortion” (SYA) want to “normalize abortion.” SYA was founded in 2015 to counter the videos released by Sandra Merritt documenting the gruesome harvesting of baby body parts — with some of the babies born alive.

But there is nothing normal about abortion or killing children born alive.

Last year, this horror was again uncovered in Washington, D.C. “One of the babies ... had an incision on the back of her neck that could indicate the use of the federally banned D&X abortion procedure more commonly known as partial-birth abortion. Other intact babies found in the bag could have been killed by infanticide after surviving the abortion procedure,” Live Action reported.

One of these five children was estimated to be at 32 weeks since conception, which is two and a half months past the point of viability. Experts believe all five could have survived outside the womb.

But they were never given that chance.

Will you become the voice that urges our leaders to do the right thing? Rush your faxes to the desks of key leaders in the Senate to pass the Born Alive Act!

The District of Columbia is one of too many locations advancing a culture of death. It allows abortions up to the moment of birth. In one location, an abortion clinic is between an elementary and a middle school. Last year, D.C. law enforcement not only ignored the horrid discovery but then targeted the pro-lifers. This is the same thing that happened to Sandra Merritt.

One D.C. sidewalk counselor saw two cartons of “medical waste” being taken out of an abortion clinic. She asked the disposal company employee if she could give the babies a proper burial. She was given one of the two containers being picked up that day.

Inside the bin, she found the bodies of 115 children. Five of these children were wrapped separately, and all of the five appeared to be well past the point of viability. Evidence of the violence these children suffered indicated that they may have been born alive before they were killed. I’ve seen the pictures, and they are sickening.

Newborn murders are real. They are more frequent in these abortion clinics than anyone wants to realize. Send your urgent faxes to pass the Born Alive Act that will require proper care for these babies.

This was not the first time the abortionist at this D.C. location has been caught performing these gruesome procedures. Dr. Cesare Santangelo was shown on camera 10 years ago describing his unique and brutal process. He does not inject feticide drugs to kill the child, but instead cuts their umbilical cord and waits for the child to die by cardiac arrest.

He admitted on camera that if a child survived one of his abortions, he and his staff “would not help it.”

This level of brutality is nauseating. The bodies of these five children are further evidence of his inhumane and illegal practices.

Further, discovery of the babies illustrates just how bloodthirsty abortionists can be in radically pro-death jurisdictions like D.C.

At this point, the only people who have been arrested are those who exposed the grotesque evil taking place in the shadow of Capitol. The murderers still walk free.

We must demand the passage of the Born Alive Act to establish protections for children that will otherwise be murdered and callously discarded.

Send urgent faxes to members of the Senate to pass the Born Alive Act and to let them know that America is watching their actions.

This is an issue of life or death. Even if your Senator will not listen, your faxes can urge other Senators to support the Born Alive Act. With Rule 14 invoked, the bill could come up for vote at any time.

We must end infanticide in America! We only need a few more Senate members to pass the Born Alive Act. We cannot remain silent while precious children are being murdered! Your faxes put Senators on notice that we care about victimized children and demand immediate action.

Be the voice of these children. Demand justice for these little ones!
