House Democrats vote against bill requiring medical care for babies born alive after abortion attempt

“Nearly every House Democrat Wednesday voted against legislation that would require immediate medical attention for babies who are born alive after an attempt was made to abort them. The House passed the Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act, which says any infant born alive after an attempted abortion is a ‘legal person for all purposes under the laws of the United States.’ Doctors would be required to care for those infants as a ‘reasonably diligent and conscientious health care practitioner would render to any other child born alive.’ The bill passed 220-210, and all 210 of the ‘no’ votes came from Democrats. Following that level of care, doctors would be required admit those infants to a hospital for further care. Any violation of this standard would result in fines and imprisonment for up to five years, or both.” (01/11/23)
