This is our chance to end infanticide and put a stop liberal efforts to expand late-term abortion even to newborns!
Conservative Representatives in the U.S. House of Representatives are working to force a vote on H.R. 962, the Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act using a discharge petition. A discharge petition is a special tool that can be used to get a bill on the floor for a vote, even if the Speaker, who controls the bills that are voted on and the House floor schedule, does not want a vote. A discharge petition needs 218 signatures, a majority of the House, to put the bill on the floor for a vote. Members are now able to sign this petition which would force a vote to protect babies born alive after failed abortions. Click here to find out if your representative has signed the discharge petition. If he/she has not signed, please contact your representative and ask him/her to sign the discharge petition for H.R. 962, the Born Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act.
Like its Senate companion bill, this crucial legislation would shield a newborn who survives an attempted abortion from being denied the care this newborn baby needs. Doctors would be required to provide the same medical care to a newborn survivor of abortion that would be offered to any other baby at the same gestational age.
Infants born alive are not guaranteed these protections under current federal law, giving abortion doctors the green light to turn their backs on a helpless baby after a botched abortion. Many have actually suggested the decision whether to help the baby, now born and struggling for his life on a table, should be left to the abortion doctor and the mother. Such a policy is nothing less than enabling infanticide. Some states continue to push for these expansions, as we saw recently in New York and Virginia.
We need your help today to stop this injustice! Conservative Representatives have spent months trying to get a vote on this legislation and now they will have the opportunity to force a vote with your help.
Even most "pro-choice" Americans support Born Alive. We should be able to come together and put an end to this awful practice
Write to your representative today by using the form on the right and tell him or her that, regardless of whether they are pro-choice or pro-life, they should sign the discharge petition for H.R. 962 and vote yes if this bill comes to the floor.
Saving a newborn baby fighting for life should not be a partisan issue. Do not let radical pro-abortion extremists or the media confuse you. Here’s the truth: federal law does not protect a survivor of abortion. At least one-third of states, including New York, have extreme abortion laws that do not require a doctor to provide life-saving health care to a baby that has already been born as the result of a botched abortion. This is infanticide! You probably heard Virginia Governor Ralph Northam publicly endorsed this barbaric practice when he defended a radical abortion proposal that would make abortion legal at any time in pregnancy, including while giving birth!
