WASHINGTON, D.C. - On Friday, the same day hundreds of thousands descend on the city for the annual March for Life, the House of Representatives will vote on the Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act (H.R. 4712). This legislation would require health care practitioners to provide life-saving medical care to babies born alive who survive an attempted abortion, just as they would do for other babies born at the same age of development. It will create criminal penalties to enforce what is currently only a definitional provision in federal law. The bill expressly prohibits any prosecution under this act of the mother of a child born-alive, and gives her a private right of action to seek relief if an abortionist were to kill or neglect her born-alive infant. Although a similar measure was signed into law by President Bush in 2003, it never had the teeth needed to hold the abortion industry accountable. Family Research Council (FRC) announced plans to score in favor of both the rule to consider the legislation and final passage of the Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act....
