The House of Representatives passed H.R. 4712, the Born-Alive Survivors Protection Act today. Congressman Rick W. Allen (R-GA), a cosponsor of this legislation, spoke in support of the bill earlier this week:


"I rise today in support of H.R. 4712, the Born-Alive Survivors Protection Act. I am proud to be a cosponsor of this important pro-life legislation."

"The Born-Alive Survivors Protection Act is a simple, but critical bill to strengthen the protections for babies who survive abortion. It ensures that these precious babies are provided with the same degree of medical care that any other child would receive in order to save their lives. We all expect doctors and nurses to follow their oath, to heal and help – this bill simply codifies that expectation into law for babies who survive abortion, and deserve a chance at life."

"Just think about this – right now we are debating whether a living, breathing, baby should be given a chance to live. I know that my colleagues on both sides of the aisle agree that these babies deserve our compassion, and most importantly, our protection – and I hope they will join me in supporting this important legislation. With that I yield back."
