Urge the U.S. Senate to Stop Infanticide



Your voice is needed to protect babies who are born alive after an abortion. The U.S. Senate could vote as soon as this week on the Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act (S. 311).

Please contact your Senators immediately and urge them to co-sponsor and vote for S. 311 and to ask Senate leadership to schedule a floor vote on the bill this week.

Today, states are not just expanding abortion but allowing infanticide as well. New York passed a drastic law that eliminated protections for babies who survive an abortion attempt. And the Governor of Virginia has openly talked about denying care to babies born during a late-term abortion.

Message to our Two U.S. Senators: Please co-sponsor and vote for the Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act (S. 311) and ask Senate leadership to schedule a floor vote on the bill this week. This bill represents a common-sense, bipartisan, and widely-supported reform. Infants who are born alive after an abortion attempt should be given the same degree of care to preserve their life and health as would be given to any other newborn baby.
