Sen. Moran (R-Kan) on Born-Alive Abortion: "Our Society is not of the ancient Romans or Aztecs."


From Washington: Just released Tuesday, U.S. Senator Jerry Moran (R-Kan.) spoke on the Senate floor regarding legislation he cosponsored and voted in favor of, the Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act, that the Senate failed to advance. Despite receiving bipartisan support, the legislation failed to receive the 60 votes needed to break the Democratic filibuster. The final roll call vote was 53-44.


Sen. Moran said, I am astonished we’re debating whether it’s appropriate to leave born children to die. It's infanticide,” he said. The Congressional Budget Office estimates more than 10,000 babies are aborted each year after 20 weeks of conception. Furthermore, science proves an unborn child can feel pain inside the womb.


Sen. Moran continued, Our society is not one of the ancient Romans or the Aztecs. We don’t sacrifice our children to please an unknown god. In the progress of human history, principles of the Enlightenment—also known as the Age of Reason—declared self-evident truths that all humans are created equal and endowed with the unalienable right to life. Though undoubtedly, we have our flaws, these Enlightenment principles enshrined in our founding documents remain true to who we are as a nation and society. We recoil when we hear of children who are harmed in any manner. Yet today we’re faced with a reality where the ability to terminate an unborn child’s life when it is viable outside of the womb is something that is not only tolerated, but passionately defended by many on the Left.”
