Rep. Estes Requests Vote for Born Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act


News out of Washington as Ron Estes appeared before Congress yesterday to request a vote on the Born Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act.

The request was denied, with Democrats forming the majority of those who opposed the vote.


The Born Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act requires health care practitioners to give the same care to an infant who has survived a botched abortion as they would to any other newborn. In April, Rep. Estes signed a discharge petition seeking to force a vote on the bill once 218 Members sign on to it. Currently, the petition has 200 signatures.


In a statement made yesterday, Estes said the American people deserved to know where the members of Congress stood on protecting life and infants that have survived a botched abortion and promised to continue calling on House Speaker Nancy Pelosi to allow the vote.
