Jon Tester joined all but three Democrats in the U.S. Senate this week to vote against a provision that would have required medical care for already-born babies who survived botched abortion procedures.
Tester and other Senate Democrats, with the exception of Senators Jones, Manchin, and Casey, refused to mandate medical treatment for the infants in a vote that failed to pass with a 60 vote majority in what turned out to be 56-41 division. All Republican senators voted to save the life of babies who survived the in-womb assassination and made it out into the world unsaved. Democrats, on the other hand, were concerned that treating “unwanted babies” might hurt abortion rights.
Senate Majority Leader, Mitch McConnell, said of the vote, “If my Democratic colleagues block the Senate from even proceeding to debate this legislation later today, the message they send will be chilling and clear: The radical demands of the far-left will drown out common sense and the views of most Americans.”
Tester has continued his legacy of supporting each and every aspect of infanticide, both in and out of the womb.
Tester voted against a 20-week ban on abortion in 2018, pledged to focus on abortion accessibility in 2006, voted no on restricting funding abortions in other countries through the United Nations in 2009, voted no on public funding abortions in 2017, and voted no on parental notification of abortions in 2018.
Tester’s campaign material says he supports “traditional Montana values.”
