Nancy Pelosi and House Democrats continue to refuse a request to allow a vote on the Born Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act, legislation that would stop infanticide and provide medical care and treatment for babies who survive abortions.

Late Monday, House Democrats refused a vote on the bill for the 47th time — reading the same statement they have read the previous 43 occasions that claims there is no bipartisan agreement to bring the bill up for a vote. Despite the claim, Republican leaders have repeatedly asked Pelosi and top Democrats to reach an agreement for the bill to receive a vote.

This is the 49th time in total that Congressional Democrats thwarted an attempt by Republicans to vote on a bill that would provide medical care and treatment for babies who provide survived failed abortions — 46 times in the House and twice in the Senate.

Rep. Denver Riggleman (R-VA) offered a unanimous consent request to allow a vote on the anti-infanticide bill but Democrats, as shown below, ruled it out of order. As they have done numerous times, after Democrats denied the request to vote on the bill, they cut off his microphone so he could not object to their denying a vote.
