Infanticide (00002)

The Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act

The Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act would require medical care to be given to any child who survived an attempted abortion and that the child be transported and admitted to a hospital. Health care practitioners who violate these requirements would be subject to criminal penalties.

Background Information

At times, an abortion procedure can result with a child being born alive. In these situations, it is currently legal for the medical practitioners performing an abortion to deny medical care to the infant and leave the baby to die, sometimes over the course of hours or days—this abhorrent practice of infanticide must end.

A babys right to life and medical care does not change because he or she was born in an abortion clinic instead of a delivery room, and medical practitioners should be legally required to administer medical care to babies no matter where or why they are born.

The Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act (H.R. 962) is non-controversial legislation. It would require that appropriate medical care be given to any child who survived an attempted abortion and that the child be transported and admitted to a hospital. Health care practitioners who violate these requirements would be subject to criminal penalties.

It would also allow the woman on whom the abortion is performed to obtain "appropriate relief” via a civil action suit. Appropriate relief includes monetary damages for physical/psychological harm, statutory damages, and punitive damages. The mother of the child born alive during an abortion would not be prosecuted.

This bill comes at a time when several states have recently passed or proposed laws to legalize abortion up until birth, which may increase the likelihood of botched abortions where babies are born alive. In an interview with KTOP news, Virginia Governor Ralph Northam even supported a state bill that would allow the killing of an innocent baby after birth if it is what the mother wanted. According to Gov. Northam, If a mother is in labor, I can tell you exactly what would happen. The infant would be delivered. The infant would be kept comfortable. The infant would be resuscitated if that is what the mother and the family desired. And then a discussion would ensue between the physicians and the mother.

Radical-leftists opposition to this non-controversial legislation shows with what little regard they have for the sanctity of life. Conservatives have the opportunity to stand up and protect the lives of innocent babies born alive after a botched abortion.
