WASHINGTON — U.S. Sen. Ron Johnson (R-Wis.) said the following Monday after voting in favor of the Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act, legislation to protect newborns that are born alive after botched abortions:

“More than a million Americans have fought and died for our inalienable rights of life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. Today’s vote to protect a baby born alive is an unfortunate reminder that we will need to keep fighting for those rights, and in this case, for the most basic of those rights, life.”
