Fr. Mark Hodges : Jan 19, 2018 : Lifesitenews.com

The bill requires that living babies be transported to a hospital for care, instead of being left to the devices of the abortionist. The bill also establishes penalties if health professionals do not provide this level of care.

The vote took place on the same day that hundreds of thousands of pro-lifers witnessed to life in the nation's Capital during the annual March for Life.

The Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act (H.R. 4712) aims to protect babies who have managed to survive an abortion and are born alive in an abortion center. The bill states that if a baby survives an abortion, that baby is entitled to the same level of care as any other baby of a similar age, no matter how delivered, would receive.

The bill requires that living babies be transported to a hospital for care, instead of being left to the devices of the abortionist. The bill also establishes penalties if health professionals do not provide this level of care. It also allows the mother to sue if her living baby is killed by intent or neglect.

The vote was 241-183. Three Republicans and four Democrats abstained. Of the 235 who voted "Yes," 235 were Republicans and 6 were Democrats.

There are U.S. cases of babies who have been born alive after a botched abortion and then brutally killed by the abortionist.
