Federal - HR 619

Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act

Introduced

January 28, 2021

Description

The Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act (H.R. 619), sponsored by Rep. Ann Wagner (R-Mo.), would enact an explicit requirement that a baby born alive during an abortion must be afforded “the same degree” of care that would apply “to any other child born alive at the same gestational age,” including transportation to a hospital.  In addition, the bill applies the existing penalties of 18 U.S.C. Sec. 1111 (the federal murder statute) to anyone who performs “an overt act that kills a child born alive.” The bill also empowers women with a right to sue their abortionists and others for harm caused by violations of the act.  National Right to Life strongly supports the Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act.  The companion bill in the U.S. Senate is S. 123, sponsored by Senator Ben Sasse (R-Ne.).
