House and Senate lawmakers so far have blocked 16 votes to protect infants who are born despite the best efforts of abortionists to kill them.

“There is plenty of outrage toward congressional Dems for blocking a vote on this bill that would give medical attention to infants after being born – which is rightfully deserved – but there should be more outrage against Republicans for not being pro-life in action,” wrote Sonny Joy Nelson in a commentary at Big League Politics.

“Establishment Republicans are campaigning on being pro-life to get them elected yet once they earn their seat, all promises of pro-life action goes out the window.”

The most recent attempt came just days ago:

Rep. Carol Miller, R-W.Va., asked “unanimous consent that the Committee on the Judiciary be discharged from further consideration of H.R. 962, the Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act, and ask for its immediate consideration in the House.”

Longtime Rep. Diana DeGette, D-Colo., refused.

When Miller tried to urge action, DeGette ruled her out of order.

Moves to protect infants born in botch abortions have been blocked 14 times in the House and twice in the Senate.

“It’s interesting that the Democratic-held House of Representatives is the chamber that has proposed the Born-Alive Abortion Survivor Protection Act far more times than the Republican-held Senate has. The Senate has proposed the bill a mere two times compared to the House that has proposed it 14 times,” wrote Nelson.

“Why is that? Shouldn’t the so-called ‘pro-life’ Republican-held chamber be the ones pushing these types of bills? One would think. It’s much easier for establishment Republicans to place the blame at the feet of Congressional Democrats instead of taking the blame for not putting their pro-life campaign platform into action.

“It’s time to hold Republicans accountable and stop placing all the blame at the feet of the Democrats.”
