US Senate to Vote on Banning Late-term Abortion and Infanticide; Debates on Bills Begin

Claire Chretien : Feb 14, 2020  LifeSiteNews.com

"In our hearts, each of us knows that every member of our human family ought to be protected... It's time to protect these newborn and vulnerable babies." -Sen. Ben Sasse

(Washington, DC) — [LifeSiteNews.com] Republican leadership began the process today of initiating a vote on the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act, which would ban most late-term abortions past five months of pregnancy, and the Born-Alive Infant Protection Act, which would require basic medical care for newborns born during failed abortions.

Majority Leader Sen. Mitch McConnell, R-KY, made a motion to begin debate on the bills. The first votes on both pieces of legislation will actually be on ending debate on the bills.

If 60 senators vote to end debate on the bill, the Senate will vote on the bill itself. But Senate rules make it impossible to vote on a bill unless 60 senators agree that the vote should take place. (Republicans changed these rules to allow the Senate to confirm President Donald Trump's two Supreme Court nominees and other judges but not legislation; it's likely that if Democrats regain control of the Senate they will simply change the rules again so as to be able to pass legislation with only a simple majority.)

Therefore pro-life groups typically score votes such as the upcoming procedural ones as votes in favor of or against late-term abortion. The Senate is in recess next week and will vote on the bills upon returning.

One of Trump's campaign promises was to sign the pain-capable bill into law. It passed the US House in October 2017 but failed to pass the US Senate in January 2018. It was then that Democrat Senators Chuck Schumer, D-NY, and Heidi Heitkamp, D-ND, high-fived after voting in favor of late-term abortions on babies who feel pain. The latter is no longer in office...
