Urge the Senate to Stop Infanticide

Your voice is needed to protect babies who are born alive after an abortion.  The U.S. Senate could vote as soon as this week on the Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act (S. 311).

Please contact your Senators immediately and urge them to co-sponsor and vote for S. 311 and to ask Senate leadership to schedule a floor vote on the bill this week.

Today, states are not just expanding abortion but allowing infanticide as well. New York passed a drastic law that eliminated protections for babies who survive an abortion attempt. And the Governor of Virginia has openly talked about denying care to babies born during a late-term abortion.

The Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act (S. 311) would require any health care practitioner present when a child is born alive following an abortion to give the same degree of care to preserve the life and health of the child as would be given to any other newborn. And after giving such care, it requires the practitioner to ensure that the child is immediately transported and admitted to a hospital. The Senate needs to be pushed to vote on and pass this bill this week. To see the text of S. 311 and the current list of co-sponsors click here.

Archbishop Joseph Naumann, Chairman of the Bishops’ Committee on Pro-Life Activities, has called on Congress to enact this law. His letter to Senators urging passage of the Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act can be read here.
