On Wednesday, H.R. 26, the Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act, introduced by Congresswoman Cammack, Congresswoman Ann Wagner, and House Majority Leader Steve Scalise, passed the U.S. House of Representatives. The bill ensures that infants born alive after an abortion attempt receive the same protection of law and degree of care as any newborn.
“For the last several years under Democrat control, the House failed to vote on the Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act. This changed during the first week of the Republican majority,” said Rep. Cammack. “It’s an honor to not only see this bill pass the House, but to receive overwhelming support from my colleagues. Upholding the value and sanctity of life has been a personal mission for me, and this bill plays a key role in affirming what the American people have always known: life is sacred. I’d like to extend a special thanks to my colleagues Majority Leader Steve Scalise and Congresswoman Ann Wagner for their leadership on this issue, and to all my Republican colleagues who voted for life today.”
