Some of the Questions Republicans Asked Their Dem Colleagues After Voting Down Pro-life Bill

President Trump called it "one of the most shocking votes in the history of Congress." And pro-lifers agree. In a vote of 53-44, Congress failed to pass the Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act. The legislation, introduced by Sen. Ben Sasse (R-NE), would mandate care for babies born alive after abortions.

The text seemed common sense enough, but some Democrats reasoned that the bill would place unnecessary obstacles between a woman and her doctor. Others, like Sen. Tammy Duckworth (D-IL), said the bill was intended “to bully doctors out of giving reproductive care.”

Not quite, according to its author.

Sasse also upended the notion that his bill is an "anti-abortion" effort.

"Nothing in this bill touches abortion," he said. "This is about protecting a baby that has already been born alive."

The senator, along with scores of other Republican lawmakers and conservative leaders, asked their Democratic colleagues a few questions after Monday's tragic defeat.
