Abortion Medical Care


Senate Roll Call Vote 58, 116th Congress, 2nd Session

Date: February 25, 2020

Status: Motion rejected


Our Position



McConnell, R-Ky., motion to invoke cloture (thus limiting debate) on the McConnell motion to proceed to the bill that would require health care practitioners to provide the same care to a child that is "born alive" after an abortion or attempted abortion as they would for a child born at the same gestational age and to ensure the child is immediately transported and admitted to a hospital. It would establish penalties for any health practitioner who would violate these requirements, in the form of fines, imprisonment for not more than five years, or both. It would authorize the woman upon whom the abortion was performed or attempted to seek appropriate relief in a civil action against any individual who would violate these requirements.

Related Bill

S 311 A bill to amend title 18, United States Code, to prohibit a health care practitioner from failing to exercise the proper degree of care in the case of a child who survives and abortion or attempted abortion.
