29 Apr The Battle for Life: State vs. Federal
Good news from Wyoming! Gov. Mark Gordon has signed a law requiring healthcare providers treat “any viable infant aborted alive” with the same “care that would be rendered to any other infant born alive.”
Wyoming’s “Born Alive” bill also states, “Any physician performing an abortion shall take medically appropriate and reasonable steps to preserve the life and health of an infant born alive.”
Meantime in Washington D.C., pro-life US Representative Kat Cammack brought HR 619, the Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act, to the floor for a vote.
For the petition to force a vote, it needed 218 signatures. That meant five Democrats would have to cross the aisle. Not enough were brave enough to bring the petition to a vote.
“A bill stating that killing newborn babies is wrong should be absolutely un-controversial,” says Right to Life League Executive Vice President Theresa Brennan.
“Of course infants who are born alive after a failed abortion should receive the same quality of care that any other newborn is afforded. The fact that our legislators can’t even work together on such a basic issue shows how deeply the abortion industry’s marketing has pervaded the public consciousness.”
