“There’s nothing in the bill that’s about abortion. Nothing. It’s about infanticide. That’s the actual legislation,” Sasse said. “And you got 44 people over there who want to hide from it and talk in euphemisms about abortion because they don’t want to defend the indefensible. Because you can’t defend the indefensible. We’re talking about killing babies that are born.”

Sasse also said on the floor that CNN had misrepresented his legislation on TV that morning.

“CNN said this morning on TV, they made up this insane phrase: They said, ‘a fetus that has been born.’ What the heck is that? It’s another way of saying they don’t want to debate the actual debate we’re having on the floor today.”
