On February 19th, five Students for Life groups, community members, Human Life of Washington, the Family Policy Institute, and Washington Women’s Network rallied in front of Senator Patty Murray’s office to protest how she single-handedly stopped the Born Alive Infant Protection Act. There were 50-60 people, holding signs that said, “Resist Infanticide,” “Stop Infanticide,” and “Washington Won’t Stand for Infanticide.”
As a reminder, the Born Alive Infant Protection Act isn’t about abortion access.
It’s a requirement that healthcare providers take care of babies who are born alive.
Patty Murray demanded that babies who survive the first attempt on their life, and are born alive, should be left on a table to die. There were seven speakers from Students for Life groups and other organizations. Students commented that infanticide “shouldn’t be controversial,” and that “the whole city of Seattle should have been out there with us, rallying against Patty Murray’s support for infanticide.”
Katie Lodjic, the Washington Regional Coordinator for SFLA, noted:
We got the attention of the local media and were featured on a few radio shows and on the local news. We had a great rally and we plan to attend Senator Murray’s other events to further explain our opposition to her actions.
