CWA’s Penny Nance: “Americans are Watching Your Vote.”
Washington, D.C. – Today, the U.S. Senate is scheduled to vote on the Born Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act (S.311), sponsored by Senator Ben Sasse (R-Nebraska) and cosponsored by 49 Senators.
Penny Nance, CEO and President of Concerned Women for America LAC, warned U.S. senators about the significance of today’s vote on the Born Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act:
“Friday marked the ninth anniversary of Kermit Gosnell losing his medical license for crimes against babies born alive after an abortion. As we’ve heard from Virginia Governor Ralph Northam and New York Governor Andrew Cuomo, defending Gosnell-like infanticide is alive and well in some liberal corners of our country. Today, senators have a choice to make; will they stand for protecting the lives of children who survive abortion or support infanticide? At the point a child is born alive, she is a patient, and doctors should be required to provide care. Congress has already agreed, unanimously, that a child born alive is a person with legal protections under U.S. law. The Born Alive Survivors Protection Act is about enforcing that law. Eighty percent of Americans agree with this bill, including 77 percent who identify as pro-choice. Senators, Americans are watching your vote.”
