Senator Ben Sasse Slams Democrats for Blocking Vote on Anti-Infanticide Bill: “They Can’t Defend the Indefensible”

February 26, 2020

Republican Nebraska Sen. Ben Sasse accused Democrats of filibustering an anti-infanticide bill because “they don’t want to defend the indefensible.”

Senators spoke Tuesday regarding legislation that aims to protect babies who survive botched abortions as well as legislation that would make abortion illegal after 20 weeks when the unborn baby can feel pain: the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act, which Republican South Carolina Sen. Lindsey Graham highlighted, and Sasse’s Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act.

Sasse accused Democrats, and specifically Democratic Senate Minority Whip Dick Durbin, of purposefully obscuring conversation surrounding the Born-Alive Survivors Protection Act by painting the bill as “anti-abortion.”

“These are about babies that are born, that are outside their mother,” Sasse said.

SIGN THE PETITION: Stop Infanticide! Stop Abortions Up to Birth!

Durbin drew attention to the correlation between race and infant and mother mortality rates, noted that infanticide in the United States is illegal, and suggested Sasse was highlighting an issue that did not need attention.

Sasse pointed out that active infanticide is indeed illegal in the United States, but that politicians like Democratic Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam have suggested that passive infanticide be legalized.

“What’s actually happening is the senator from Illinois is wanting to obscure the debate because he wants to use euphemisms about choice so that you don’t have to admit to the American public that what’s actually happening on the floor today is probably that like last year, 44 Democrats are gonna filibuster an anti-infanticide bill,” he continued.

“There’s nothing in the bill that’s about abortion,” Sasse added. “Nothing! It’s about infanticide. That’s the actual legislation. And you’ve got 44 people over there that want to hide from it, and talk in euphemisms about abortion, because they don’t want to defend the indefensible.”

“Because you can’t defend the indefensible,” the Nebraska senator said. “We are talking about killing babies that are born. That’s the actual legislation we are voting on today in the Senate. That’s what the Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act is.”

Sasse also criticized CNN for a Tuesday report on both the Pain Capable Act and the Born Alive Act that described a baby who survived an abortion as a “fetus that was born.”

“News flash CNN,” he said, “If you’re a baby, and you’ve been born, and you’re outside of mama, nobody calls that a fetus. You just wanna call that a fetus because you don’t wanna cover the actual story that’s being voted on in the U.S. Senate today.”

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
