Still playing follow-the-links.
Senate Democrats blocked the Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act Monday evening, which, under the threat of prison time, would have forced doctors to provide medical care to babies born alive in a failed abortion.
The Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act would have required that “any health care practitioner present” at the time of a birth “exercise the same degree of professional skill, care, and diligence to preserve the life and health of the child as a reasonably diligent and conscientious health care practitioner would render to any other child born alive at the same gestational age.”
The bill, which exempted the mother involved in the birth from prosecution, also would have required practitioners to “ensure that the child born alive is immediately transported and admitted to a hospital.” It prescribed a possible term of imprisonment of up to five years for violations, not including penalties for first-degree murder that could have applied.

This leaves me speechless. What possible reason could any person have to block this?
