- Nearly every House Democrat Wednesday voted against legislation that would require immediate medical attention for babies who are born alive after an attempt was made to abort them.
- The House passed the Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act, which says any infant born alive after an attempted abortion is a “legal person for all purposes under the laws of the United States.” Doctors would be required to care for those infants as a “reasonably diligent and conscientious health care practitioner would render to any other child born alive.”
- The bill passed 220-210, and all 210 of the “no” votes came from Democrats.
