Statement regarding the Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act
Dear Friends in Christ,
It was not only very disappointing, but horrifying, that the U.S. Senate recently failed to pass the Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act. Those who voted against this bill extended Roe v. Wade’s license for killing unborn children to killing newborn babies born alive following an attempted abortion. It is hard to believe that our nation allows infanticide. It was horrifying that weeks earlier the legislature of New York State, with the support of the governor, had removed the protections of their laws for infants born during an abortion. I was hopeful that our U.S. Congress would have sought their protection.
