Urge Your Senators to Vote YES on the Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act
In light of the radical trend that started with the signing of the Reproductive Health Act by Governor Andrew Cuomo (D-N.Y.), allowing abortion through all stages of pregnancy and removing explicit protections for babies born alive following a failed abortion, the Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act (S. 311), sponsored by Senator Ben Sasse (R-Ne.), would enact an explicit requirement that a baby born alive during an abortion must be afforded “the same degree” of care that would apply “to any other child born alive at the same gestational age,” including transportation to a hospital.
The bill applies the existing penalties of the federal murder statute to anyone who performs “an overt act that kills a child born alive.” The bill also empowers women with a right to sue their abortionists and others for harm caused by violations of the act.
National Right to Life strongly supports the Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act. Call your senators to urge them to support this legislation when the bill comes to the floor on February 25th.
