The Right To Life Is The Foundation Of Freedom Itself

At a point in our nation’s history where I fear the country is quickly losing hope in Congress’ ability to debate with civility or legislate with integrity, I thought there was at least one thing that most people agreed on: Infants with beating hearts should not be left to die.
Or so I mistakenly thought.
Of course, infanticide is illegal in the United States. But what about when it comes to an unwanted infant?
The Born Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act that House Republicans have now requested be brought to the floor an astonishing 80 times would simply require doctors to provide the same level of diligent medical care to a baby born after surviving an abortion as they would any other baby. It would impose criminal consequences on those who fail to do so.
On the surface, this piece of legislation may appear to be a controversial topic given the sensitive circumstances of when this law would be applied. That is why I want to make it abundantly clear that, despite what Democrats, the media, or abortion advocates say, this is not a debate about limiting access to abortion for women. This is a debate about life.
Federal law recognizes a child “born alive at any stage of development” as “persons.” So when we agree that it is morally wrong, not to mention illegal, to leave another person to die, it should be unanimously understood that those same protections apply to infants born alive after failed abortions.
