Fr. Frank Pavone Praises House Vote to Protect Babies Who Survive Abortions

Titusville, FL – Fr. Frank Pavone, National Director of Priests for Life, today hailed the House of Representatives’ passage of the Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act. The measure aims to protect babies who are born alive during or after abortions.

“There are children who, against all odds, survive abortions. I know some of them,” said Fr. Pavone. “But all too often, these abortion survivors are killed by abortionists who are more interested in ending a life than ending a pregnancy. This bill will finally set penalties for medical professionals who commit infanticide against the unwanted.”

The Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act would amend a 2003 federal statute that says children who are born alive after abortions are entitled to the same treatment as other babies. That law, however, contains no enforcement provisions. Today’s House-passed legislation would establish criminal penalties for those who fail to provide care for abortion-surviving newborns.

“No matter how a child is born, that child is a living, breathing citizen and, as such, should receive the full protection of the law,” added Fr. Pavone. “The inhumane practice of abortionists who allow newborn babies to die without lifting a finger to help them must end. This measure reinforces the important wall that should exist between a mother's ‘choice’ and a child's right to live. The Senate must act swiftly to approve the Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act and send it to President Trump for his signature.”
