USCCB Urges House to Pass Born-Alive Survivors Protection Act

The United States Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB) is urging Catholics to contact their Representatives to ask them to support the Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act.


This Wednesday, the U.S. House of Representatives is expected to consider H.R. 26, which would require health care providers to give children born alive after an attempted abortion the same medical care that they would for any child born at that same gestational age and to transport them to a hospital. Additionally, the bill would require the mandatory reporting of failure of health care providers to provide this essential care.


The need for this legislation is real. The CDC reported that over 140 children died after surviving an abortion attempt from 2003 to 2014 and, with difficulty in reliable reporting of such events, even admitted this was likely an underestimate.
