The U.S. House of Representatives passed a bill that would grant legal protection for babies born alive in an attempted abortion.In a vote of 248 yeas to 177 nays taken on Friday H.R.3504, titled the “Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act” was passed in a largely party line tally.
Introduced by Arizona Congressman Trent Franks earlier this month, H.R. 3504 seeks to amend the federal criminal code to mandate that abortion providers must give proper medical care to any baby born alive in their facility.
Congressman Trent Franks (R-Ariz.) “If an abortion results in the live birth of an infant, the infant is a legal person for all purposes under the laws of the United States, and entitled to all the protections of such laws,”
read HR 3504.”Any infant born alive after an abortion or within a hospital, clinic, or other facility has the same claim to the protection of the law that would arise for any newborn, or for any person who comes to a hospital, clinic, or other facility for screening and treatment or otherwise becomes a patient within its care.”
