The Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act ensures any infant born alive following an abortion receives the same medical care and protection the law gives any newborn baby.
Republican Whip, Steve Scalise of Louisiana, will bring a resolution that provides for floor consideration of Ann Wagner’s bill. Ann Wagner is a Republican from Missouri.
Scalise said in his statement,”Innocent life must be defended and protected at every stage, and that includes babies born alive during an abortion…We must immediately extend legal protections to these vulnerable newborns and prosecute any doctor who would leave them to die.”
Scalise and Wagner will force a vote on the bill after 30 legislative days if no action is taken,”especially after horrific actions taken in New York and Virginia to permit infanticide, “The silence from Congressional Democrats is deafening and shameful,” Scalise continued.
Wager asserted, “To my colleagues, this is the simplest vote you will ever take: either you support babies being killed after they are born or you don’t…It is time to go on the record and make clear if you think babies born alive deserve medical care, or if you think they should be left to die.”
“This same legislation to protect babies born alive passed easily in the House. The difference now is that Democrats are in control,” Susan B. Anthony stated.
Nancy Pelosi and House Democrats have a chance to reject infanticide but may give their party a bad reputation in the house and the public as “infant killers.”
Democrats hold the majority in The House of Representatives.
House Democrats have twice refused now to take up the Born Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act for consideration.
The measure is “designed to ensure any infant born alive after an abortion receives the same protection of law as any newborn: mandating care and instituting penalties for doctors who allow such infants to die or who intentionally kill a newborn,”
according to a statement from the office of its sponsor Rep. Ann Wagner (R-MO). House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) attempted to get the legislation considered in the House Wednesday but again it was blocked by democrats
