Press Release

Today, the House of Representatives passed legislation that will protect children who are born during an abortion. Across the country, there have been many instances where a child has been born after an abortion procedure has failed.

The legislation passed today requires doctors and medical personnel to "exercise the same degree of care to preserve the life and health of the child as any health care practitioner would provide to a child born alive at the same gestational age."

The bill also requires the born infant be transported to a hospital immediately following the administration of emergency care.

Congressman John Moolenaar has a 100 percent pro-life record and voted for today's legislation. He made the following statement in support of it:

"All children are a blessing and this legislation will ensure that children born during a failed abortion will receive immediate medical support and have their inalienable right to life recognized."
