Congresswoman Slams Democrats for Voting for Infanticide: These Babies Deserve Protection

July 17, 2020

Congresswoman Jaime Herrera Beutler criticized Democrats on Tuesday for allowing infanticide to continue when they rejected an amendment requiring basic medical care for babies who survive abortions.

The Washington state Republican, who has her own pro-life miracle story, said babies born alive in failed abortions deserve “the same exact protection under the law that any other baby is equal to,” CNS News reports.

“There is evidence that babies born alive are being killed or neglected after the fact. … If a baby is born alive after an abortion, they deserve the same treatment under the law,” she told her fellow lawmakers.

Beutler joined 21 Republicans and two Democrats in voting in favor of the pro-life amendment. However, pro-abortion Democrats, who control the U.S. House, voted against it, making the vote 24-28 against.

As LifeNews reported earlier this week, the amendment would have banned TRICARE funding to entities that fail to exercise the proper degree of care to a child who survives an abortion or attempted abortion.

The amendment would have required any health care practitioner present to exercise the same care that would be given to any other child born alive at the same gestational age. The practitioner must then ensure that the child is immediately transported to a hospital. The amendment also required the funding recipient to certify that it has sufficient resources to comply with this requirement and that it has reporting requirements in place for any violation.

Pro-life Rep. Andy Harris (R-MD) proposed the amendment after Nancy Pelosi and House Democrats blocked similar legislation, the Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act, 81 times on the floor.

Prior to the vote Tuesday, Beutler provided evidence that babies do survive abortions and sometimes are left to die without basic medical care. She “read a report that said in 2017, an abortion provider in Arizona and California would not give a straight answer about their procedures during a born-alive abortion attempt, saying it ‘depended on who was in the room,’” according to CNS News.

She also cited reports that 10 babies were born alive in botched abortions in Arizona in 2017 and 491 in Canada between 2000 and 2009. Most states do not keep track of the number of babies who survive abortions.

Beutler said the amendment would have provided “guidance so that if this happens, which I’m sure is very distressing, that there is some guidance for how they take care of and make sure that baby is given the same, equal medical care that any other baby of that gestational age would be offered in a hospital setting.”

Though babies’ survivals have been called “imaginary” and protections for them unnecessary, state health data indicates that at least 40 babies were born alive after botched abortions in just three states between 2016 and 2018. According to the state health data, 11 babies were born alive after botched abortions in Minnesota, 10 in Arizona and 19 in Florida.

Statistics from the Centers for Disease Control, as well as the personal testimonies of nurses and abortion survivors themselves, also provide evidence that babies survive abortions. According to the CDC, at least 143 babies were born alive after botched abortions between 2003 and 2014 in the U.S., though there likely are more.

Research by the American Center for Law and Justice estimated the number is much higher, at least 362 between 2001 and 2010.

“If a baby is born alive, after an abortion they deserve—constitutionally—the same exact protection under that law that any other baby is equal to,” Beutler said.

The Good News


Salvation is a FREE GIFT from God. You don’t have to do anything but believe by faith that God sent His only Son Jesus Christ to die for your sins, was buried, and rose from the dead 3 days later.




  1. God declares all mankind sinners and we all fall short of Glory of God. Romans 3:23
  2. The payment for our sin is death. Romans 6:23
  3. But God…because he loved you so much sent His own Son, Jesus Christ, to die in your place, for your sins, was buried, and rose from the dead three days later. 1 Cor 15:1-42cor 5:21

All God asks is that you believe by faith alone in 1, 2, & 3. That you’re a sinner, separated from God but God sent his Son to die for your sins, was buried & rose again 3 days later.

‘that if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved. ‘

Romans 10:9
