Letter to the editor

Nancy Pelosi and House Democrats continue to refuse a request to allow a vote on the Born Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act, legislation that would stop infanticide and provide medical care and treatment for babies who survive abortions.

On May 2, House Democrats refused a vote on the bill for the 36th time — reading the same statement they have read the previous 35 occasions that claims there is no bipartisan agreement to bring the bill up for a vote. Despite the claim, Republican leaders have repeatedly asked Pelosi and top Democrats to reach an agreement for the bill to receive a vote.

This is the 38th time congressional Democrats have thwarted an attempt by Republicans to vote on a bill that would provide medical care and treatment for babies who provide survived failed abortions — 36 times in the House and twice in the Senate. This is not the Democratic Party my father knew back in the day.
