Missouri House Democrat Legislators Vote to Allow Infanticide
This morning, Thursday, April 25, 2019, in the Missouri House of Representatives Rules Committee on Administrative Research, three pro-abortion Democrats voted no on protecting babies born alive after an abortion (HCS HB 971). Pro-abortion Democrat Representatives John Carpenter (District 15), Deb Lavender (District 90), and Gina Mitten (District 83), voted to allow infanticide of babies born alive and needing care. They said “NO” to caring for these babies born alive and breathing.
Voting to protect babies born alive after an attempted abortion were: Republican Representatives Holly Rehder (District 148), Shiela Solon (District 9), Shamed Dogan (District 98), Hannah Kelly (District 141), and Nick Schroer (District 107).
“We are truly saddened to think that in our conservative, pro-life state of Missouri some legislators would approve of the killing of innocent unborn babies that survive an abortion. We are so thankful that our majority, pro-life legislators recognize that a baby at birth, through whatever means, is a human being worthy of care,” said Steve Rupp, President of Missouri Right to Life.
