After voting against cloture for the Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act in February, Sen. Kamala Harris (D-Calif.) is now promoting a bill to protect "survivors" of dog fighting.

On Monday, Sen. Harris took to Twitter to declare dog fighting “a despicable crime” and promote her bill to help “survivors of dog fighting”:

“Dog fighting is a despicable crime. These animals bring us so much joy and we can and must do more so that survivors of dog fighting find their forever homes. My bill, the HEART Act, would help ensure this. #DogFightingAwarenessDay

But, on February 25, 2019, Harris was one of 44 senators to vote against cloture for the Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act (S.331), which would require doctors to provide live-sustaining care to “a child who survives an abortion or attempted abortion” – denying the bill the 60 Senate votes it required to end filibuster and proceed.

Sen. Harris’ bill is known as the HEART (“Help Extract Animals from Red Tape”) Act, not to be confused with several “Heartbeat Bills,” which would protect unborn babies with heartbeats from abortion that have passed or are under consideration in states like Georgia, Ohio, Tennessee, Mississippi, Florida, South Carolina and Iowa.
