Young Condemns Barbaric Efforts to Legalize Abortion Up Until the Moment of Delivery

WASHINGTON — U.S. Senator Todd Young (R-Ind.) issued the following statement tonight after Senate Democrats blocked the Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act:

“In light of the barbaric and widely condemned state-level efforts in New York and Virginia to legalize abortion up until the moment of delivery, we need to ensure that all newborns receive appropriate care and medical treatment. The Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act bans the horrific act of infanticide by ensuring that babies who survive attempted abortions have the chance at life that they deserve. I find it deeply disturbing that Democrats have blocked this critical life-saving bill.”
