Body autonomy and snuffing an unborn child should be two separate issues. Like Nancy Pelosi and sanity. Yet pro-abortion advocates have brilliantly linked one to the other, convincing self-righteous, over-feelers to herald abortion as beacon of a woman’s agency. In place of actual accomplishments. In reality (that place leftists find uncomfortable, always seeking safe spaces in which to coddle their delusions), an unborn child is its own body. Period, the end.
Today, the U.S. House voted to protect children who survived their “mother’s” attempt to snuff them, so she could continue living as she wishes. Specifically without the baby she helped to create. Screw responsibility.
The Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act (H.R. 4712) aims to protect babies who have managed to survive an abortion and are born alive in an abortion center. The bill states that if a baby survives an abortion, that baby is entitled to the same level of care as any other baby of a similar age, no matter how delivered, would receive.
The bill requires that living babies be transported to a hospital for care, instead of being left to the devices of the abortionist. The bill also establishes penalties if health professionals do not provide this level of care. It also allows the mother to sue if her living baby is killed by intent or neglect.
Before some of my pro-life brothers and sisters start demanding for a full abortion ban (of which I would approve) bear in mind when it comes to the law, small moves.
This new version of the Born Alive act comes after the Center for Medical Progress released undercover videos of Planned Parenthood clinics selling baby parts for profit. After further investigations, House Panels found the abortion clinic would often alter the abortion procedure so as to purposefully procure whole, living babies. For better sale.
And abortion advocates say pro-lifers are “extreme.” Cute.
The new passage of Born Alive serves two main purposes:
- It aims to protect children who survive the first attempt to kill them
- It’s a small move to establish the humanity of the unborn. Which, unfortunately, we need to continue in the face of abortion supporters who want to kill anything in their way.
We still have a long way to go in the fight for life. But one step at a time…
