On January 11, the House passed the Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act (H.R.26). Shortly before Reps voted 220-210 in favor of the important, pro-life legislation, House Majority Leader Steve Scalise (R-LA) shared that the bill "protects the sanctity of life and safeguards the rights of the unborn [and] secures medical protections for babies that survive an attempted abortion."
Earlier today, Grassfire learned that H.R.26 has been added to the Senate calendar and could be voted on soon. According to an email we received from the office of Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) this morning, Senate Rule XIV has been invoked, which allows a bill or joint resolution to bypass a committee and make it immediately available for consideration.
While Rule XIV does NOT guarantee that the full Senate will ever consider the Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act, a vote on H.R.26 is POSSIBLE. That means Republicans in the Upper Chamber can PRESSURE Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) to bring the Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act to the floor.
