H.R. 37 & S. 220 - Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act

The Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act would establish the degree of care to be provided to a baby born alive after an abortion and set penalties for an abortionist who fails to provide that care. The measure would amend a section of the federal criminal code which requires babies who survive abortions to be given medical care, but which includes no penalties for those who violate it.

H.R. 37 is the House version of the Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act; S. 220 is the Senate version. The two bills are identical.

A version of the Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act was introduced as H.R. 3504 in the previous Congress. It was passed by the House in September 2015, but did not receive a vote in the Senate.
