Take Action Today to Protect Babies Born Alive

January 30

Today, newborns are not given equal medical treatment.


Because when a baby is born alive following a botched abortion, some doctors have allowed that living, breathing child to die right there. Thankfully, the U.S. House of Representatives passed the Born Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act this month with only one Democrat supporting the bill, and now it is time for the Senate to put in place common sense protections for all newborns.

Only 10 states are even required to report on instances of babies born alive following an abortion, so we know the numbers are even higher than what is public today. And babies do survive late-term abortions. The Born Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act requires that the medical community provide proper medical care to all newborn patients, including those who survived a gruesome abortion procedure.

Abortion survivors are speaking out on this issue, letting the world know that they exist and that their lives are worth fighting for. The organization Abortion Survivors Network has over 600 abortion survivors in their network and has rallied around proposals such as Born-Alive because they understand lives like their own are at stake once again this Congress.

How can you help?

Your Senator needs to hear from you on this matter. Tell them we must ensure the law protects ALL newborn children in our nation

For life,
