Rubio Statement on Democrat Obstruction to Protect Newborn Abortion Survivors

Feb 4, 2019 | Press Releases

Washington, D.C. – U.S. Senator Marco Rubio (R-FL) issued the following statement after Senate Democrats blocked passage of the Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act (S. 130):
 
“That Senate Democrats would block a bill to protect a baby who survives an abortion speaks volumes,” said Rubio. “Supporting a newborn’s right to life should not be a partisan issue. Unfortunately, Senate Democrats, like their colleagues in Virginia and New York, seem to have no issue publicly supporting legal infanticide. It is clear that, on the issue of life, extremism has become mainstream in the Democratic Party.”
 
The Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act, which Rubio is a cosponsor of, would protect newborns that survive abortions by requiring appropriate care and admission to a hospital. The legislation requires that, when an abortion results in the live birth of an infant, health care practitioners must exercise the same degree of professional skill and care to protect the newborn as would be offered to any other child born alive at the same gestational age. It also requires that the living child, after appropriate care has been given, be immediately transported and admitted to a hospital.
 
Currently federal law does not adequately protect a born child who survives an abortion.
