Pro-life Congresswoman Kat Cammack (R-FL) will try to force Speaker Nancy Pelosi to vote on a critical piece of legislation that would protect newborn babies who survive abortions from infanticide called the Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act, sponsored by Rep. Ann Wagner (R-MO). 

The Florida congresswoman would try to force a vote on the measure by getting enough signatures of a simple majority of the House of Representatives. Right now, with the Democrats’ majority barely hanging on, the congresswoman would only need 218 signatures to force a vote. Right now, Republicans hold 213 seats in the chamber, meaning only five Democrats would be needed to swing the vote.

“The right to life is the most sacred, inalienable human right afforded to us in the United States,” Rep. Cammack said. “I urge my colleagues to stand up for what is right in putting an end to the dangerous, immoral abortion practices that take place daily in our country, and I look forward to working with Republicans in Congress and everyone who stands for life in moving this bill forward toward a floor vote this Congress.”

“I will not stop working until this legislation becomes law, so newborns have a chance at life when they are at their most vulnerable,” Rep. Wagner said. “For too long, Nancy Pelosi has blocked my commonsense legislation that protects the innocent lives of children born alive. We must take a stand and tell her the American people want the Born-Alive Act passed and signed into law.” Wagner previously sponsored the measure in the 116th Congress, but the bill has a much better chance of passage with the Democrats’ feeble majority. 

Jeanne Mancini, president of March for Life, told that she strongly supports the discharge petition:

“We strongly support the Born Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act and applaud Whip Scalise and Congresswomen Cammack and Wagner for bringing forward the Born Alive discharge petition as well as those Representatives who have signed on. This is a common-sense bill that would require medical professionals to provide the most basic, necessary care for babies who have survived failed abortions – something that, disturbingly, some elected officials have pledged to oppose. CDC data shows that at least 143 babies were in fact born alive after a failed abortion between 2003-2014. These infants deserve equal protection under the law and Americans deserve to know where their representatives stand on this bill which is inspired by basic compassion and human dignity.”

Life News reports that “Between 2016 and 2018, three states reported 40 babies were born alive after botched abortions. According to the state health data, 11 babies were born alive in Minnesota, 10 in Arizona and 19 in Florida. Texas reported six babies were born alive in botched abortions in 2019. In Michigan, state health reports from 2008 through 2013 indicate that 11 babies were born alive after abortions.”
