From the desk of Addia Wuchner, Executive Director, Kentucky Right to Life
Thank you to the pro-life leadership in Congress and to our Kentucky pro-life Representatives, Andy Barr, Brett Guthrie, Thomas Massie, Hal Rogers, and James Comer, for your YEA-Votes!
We have waited and prayed… and last Wednesday afternoon Congress passed the Born Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act and H. Con. Res. 3 Condemning Acts of Violence Against Pro-Life Facilities.
Resolution 3 condemns the recent attacks on pro-life facilities, groups, and churches. Our office and your KRTL director received threatening calls just after the overturning of Roe and during the campaign on Amendment 2.
Many pregnancy care centers and churches experienced lash-out destructive attacks after the Roe ruling. The resolution condemns “recent attacks of vandalism, violence, and destruction against pro-life facilities, groups, and churches,” and calls on the Biden Administration to use its authority to protect the rights of such organizations.
The Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act requires that, when a baby is born alive following an abortion, health care practitioners must exercise the same degree of professional skill and care that would be offered to any other child born alive at the same gestational age. It also requires that, following appropriate care, health care workers must transport the living child immediately to a hospital.
In 2021, Kentucky passed Senate Bill 9 requiring doctors to perform life-saving care on any infant who showed signs of life, including those who survive an abortion attempt.
Thank you Congress for the 220+ ProLife YEA-Votes on Wednesday and for standing with ProLife Americans as an unwavering voice for the most vulnerable!
So, who voted “NO”? Who would vote NO to protecting a child born alive from a failed abortion! Who would want to allow that child to die, which equates to infanticide? Sadly, 210 Democrats… Please help me to understand the Democrats and their NAY votes against H.Con.Res.3. Never mind… there is really no comprehending a thought process that would support any form of violence.
We are lifting up prayers of gratitude for Congress for their passage of this bills and this resolution. And we are praying for the members of Congress who allowed partisan political pressure to over shadow their consciences.
