Sasse Challenges Senate on Infanticide Support

Senator Ben Sasse (R-NE) drew a big, fat red line on the floor of the U.S. Senate Thursday when he asked all 99 of his fellow senators to stand on the floor and state whether they are for or against infanticide. Sasse gave them heads up, saying: “On Monday, I’m going to ask all 100 Senators to come to the floor and be against infanticide. This shouldn’t be complicated.” Sasse is also taking concrete legislative steps to address the recent flurry of third-term and post-birth abortion legislation across America. He’s using Rule 14 to expedite consideration of his bill “the Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act.” Sasse is boldly calling for a vote to pass the bill with unanimous consent as soon as next week. This should smoke out some Democrats on the issue, particularly those running for president. Stay tuned…

On Thursday, speaking on the Senate floor, Senator Ben Sasse (R-NB) threw down the gauntlet to his 99 fellow senators, informing them, “On Monday, I’m going to ask all 100 senators to come to the floor and be against infanticide. This shouldn’t be complicated.”

As Alexandra DeSanctis reports at National Review, Sasse “announced that he is starting a dual-track process for the Senate to consider his legislation, the Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act, in light of Virginia governor Ralph Northam’s recent comments about late-term abortion legislation in his state. Sasse is using the Rule 14 process to expedite consideration of the bill, as well as calling for a vote to pass the bill under unanimous consent on the Senate floor next week.”

Sasse quoted the incendiary comments made this week by Virginia Governor Ralph Northam, who intimated that even if a baby is born alive, a mother in his state could still opt to let the baby die. Sasse pointed out that Northam, despite huge outrage precipitated by his remarks, doubled down on Thursday.
