In case you haven’t heard the good news, Senate File 97, Born Alive Infant-Means of Care, passed the Senate Labor, Health, and Social Services Committee by a vote of 4-1. Now it goes to the full Senate, where your voice of support is needed!
This bill is a small but very important change in the Wyoming statutes, providing greater clarity on preserving the lives of infants who have survived an attempted abortion. It ensures that they will be shown the dignity and care that all mankind should be treated with when struggling for their lives.
Standing for the Human Dignity of infants born alive is really a stand for the Human Dignity of all. When an infant is born, there should be a bipartisan recognition that this vulnerable human should be given, as the bill states, “medically appropriate and reasonable steps to preserve the life and health of the infant born alive.”
Several young ladies drove over from the University of Wyoming and gave powerful testimony in support of the bill and impacted the senators with their testimonies. While a few hardline abortionists came to express their opposition to the bill, they were FAR outnumbered by a chamber packed with supporters of this common-sense life-affirming bill. In her closing remarks, Senator Cheri Steinmetz, the sponsor of the bill, asked for those in support of the bill to stand, and almost the entire room stood representing the overwhelming support from across Wyoming for the Human Dignity of infants.
