A new poll was released this week by the Susan B. Anthony List (SBA List) that showed 77% of voters support legislation that would ensure any “baby who survives a failed abortion be given the same medical treatment as any other baby born prematurely at the same age (55 percent strongly support).”
It also showed that 62% of voters oppose legislation that allows for late-term abortions, even the abortions that are performed up to the point of labor. 50% strongly oppose, according to the poll.
“Americans overwhelmingly reject the Democratic Party’s extreme agenda of abortion on demand through birth and even beyond. Three in four voters agree babies born alive during a failed abortion should be protected in law, and nearly two-thirds oppose efforts to allow late-term abortion even at the moment of delivery, like those in Virginia and New York,” said SBA List President Marjorie Dannenfelser. “Democrats’ obstruction of compassionate legislation to protect these vulnerable children exposes them as the party of infanticide and shows how radically out of step they are with the American people. We urge both chambers of Congress to bring this bill to the floor for a recorded vote. Voters deserve to know where their legislators stand. Abortion extremists who betray their constituents will be held accountable at the ballot box.”
The survey was conducted by McLaughlin & Associates with 1,000 general election voters nationwide interviewed online between February 6th and February 10th, 2019.
Just this past Monday, House Democrats blocked a bill called the Born Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act for the fourth time. The bill would ensure babies who survive failed abortions receive prompt and adequate medical attention, making every effort to keep the babies alive and give them a chance at life.
Directly after the blocking, Rep. Mark Walker (R-N.C.) wrote an op-ed for LifeSite News where he stated in part:
“I just left the House floor where, for the fourth straight legislative day, House Democrats blocked a vote on a bill that would protect babies who survive abortions from being murdered. I just asked for “unanimous consent” to bring Rep. Ann Wagner’s (R-MO) Born Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act to the House floor for a vote. Democratic leaders, supporting the abortion industry agenda, refused to even consider the legislation, fearing the thought of allowing their members to vote their conscience and what they know to be morally straight. “

Rep. Walker continued:
“To revive the American Dream, we must reclaim America’s soul. That means standing with the majority of the American people to reject federal funding of abortion. That means putting the life and health of women ahead of the desires of abortion giants like Planned Parenthood. That means valuing every single human life and the potential he or she has – both 20 weeks before birth and 20 weeks after.
This is what House Republicans are dedicated to doing. We are dedicated to the value of all human life. We will not stop fighting. For those of you fighting on this issue, there’s no more noble cause than to fight for those who are defenseless. For these children who have no voice, never stop raising yours.
Tomorrow, and as long as it takes, we will continue to ask the Democratic House leadership to bring the Born Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act to the floor. They will have another opportunity to save babies from murder during their most vulnerable moments. The question is whether they will continue to silence their members and the voice of the unborn, or if they will allow the House Democratic rank-and-file to speak for themselves and the majority of the country.”

After calls to legalize abortion on demand through dilation in New York, Vermont, and Virginia, President Trump called out the Democratic Party for their support of late-term abortion and infanticide at the February 5th State of the Union address. Additionally, President Trump has also called on Congress to pass legislation that would stop late-term abortions after five months, when the preborn baby can feel pain, the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act.
