Senate Democrats have once again voted against preserving the life of a baby that has survived an abortion, or has been “born alive.”

Florida Senator Rick Scott (R) believes that Sen. Ben Sasse’s Amendment 192 was “common sense,” adding that Democrat efforts to block the vote only “shows how radical the Democrat Party has become.”=

“It shouldn’t be a political fight to value life,” said stated Sen. Scott. “This vote should have been common sense, but Dems’ vote to block it shows just how radical the Democrat party has become. Newborns are the most vulnerable among us and deserve to be welcomed with open arms.”

Two Democrats, Sens. Joe Manchin and Bob Casey, voted alongside Republicans, but there just weren’t enough votes, as the measure failed to reach the 60-vote count needed to move forward.

The amendment received a vote of 52-48 but failed to meet the 60-vote threshold required to advance.

According to the bill, it was written to” establish a deficit-neutral reserve fund relating to improving health care to prohibit a health care practitioner from failing to exercise the proper degree of care in the case of a child who survives an abortion or attempted abortion.”

This is the second time in a year that Senate Democrats voted against a “born alive” legislative action, and in favor of infanticide.
