The fanatical 15


Issue: "Who'll be king of the Hill?," Oct. 7, 2000

Although Florida congressman Charles Canady's Born-Alive Infants Protection Act passed the House last week with only 15 dissenting votes, it remains significant that even a small number of elected officials would cast a vote against legislation banning infanticide. Compounding the shame, House supporters of abortion had plenty of political cover, led by pro-choicers like Rep. Jerrold Nadler of New York. AP reported the roll call: Julia Carson, D-Ind.
Alcee Hastings, D-Fla.
Carolyn Maloney, D-N.Y.
John Dingell, D-Mich.
Jesse Jackson Jr., D-Ill.
Cynthia McKinney, D-Ga.
Chaka Fattah, D-Pa.
Nydia Velazquez, D-N.Y.
Nancy Johnson, R-Conn.
Benjamin Gilman, R-N.Y.
Barbara Lee, D-Calif.
Maxine Waters, D-Calif.
Charles Gonzalez, D-Texas
Nita Lowey, D-N.Y.
Mel Watt, D-N.C.
