CWN Editor's Note: Legislation to outlaw the deliberate destruction of babies who survived abortion was blocked in the US Senate by Patty Murray, a Democrat (who identifies as Catholic) from Washington. Senator Ben Sasse, the sponsor of the bill, had sought unanimous consent, saying: “You’re either for babies or you’re defending infanticide.” The US bishops’ conference supported the legislation.
