Protecting Babies Who Survive an Abortion Should Not be Controversial


The Senate is set to vote Monday on the Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act, a bill that would provide desperately needed protections for babies who survive an abortion attempt. Such a policy should not be remotely controversial.

Current federal policy does not do enough to protect these babies. The Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act would solve the problem by requiring proper medical care be given to infants who survive an abortion, and establishing criminal consequences for practitioners who fail to do so.

It’s hard to believe anyone would oppose such a policy. Yet well-funded abortion advocates like Planned Parenthood and the National Abortion Federation, who are radically out of step with the national consensus, have convinced some in Congress that requiring medical care for babies who survive abortion is an assault on “reproductive health care.”

They oppose making federal law crystal clear to support the lives of all babies after they’ve been born. And they oppose this under the vague guise of “women’s health.”
