The United States Congress

In response to Speaker Pelosi’s refusal to bring the Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act (H.R. 962) out of committee, GOP leaders have filed a discharge petition that needs 218 signatures to force a vote. The Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act would require appropriate medical care be given to any child who survives an attempted abortion, it would also establish criminal penalties for health care practitioners that violate this requirement and a civil right of action to enforce the law (the mother of a child born alive may not be prosecuted).

It is unconscionable that under current law a health care practitioner is unaccountable for refusing to give proper care to a baby born alive. Whether they believe in abortion or not, health care practitioners must do everything in their power to save a life after it is born.

This fight is about basic human rights. Sign your name to take a stand.
