Democrats defeat 20-week abortion ban and bill requiring care for abortion survivors

(Worthy News) – Democrats defeated two measures Tuesday aimed at highlighting late-pregnancy abortions, in votes raised by Republican leaders ahead of the 2020 elections to put their opponents on the record over a controversial practice.

The first bill, the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act, would fine or imprison doctors who perform abortions after 20 weeks into a pregnancy. The bill made exceptions for cases where the pregnancy threatens a woman’s life, but not her health or the health of her fetus, and for cases of rape or incest.

The other bill, the Born-Alive Infant Child Protection Act, would mandate that babies born alive after failed abortions get transferred to a hospital and receive the same care as a premature infant. The last time the “Born Alive” bill came to the Senate floor, last February, the vote was held under “unanimous consent,” a procedural move that allows any one senator to block passage, preventing a roll call vote putting all senators on the record.
