Insider Report: WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today,
Congressman Kevin Brady (TX-08) released the following statement in support of
the re-introduction of the Born
Alive Survivors Protection Act:
“I want to thank my colleague,
Rep. Anne Wagner, for re-introducing this important legislation. Last night,
President Trump called on Congress to defend the dignity of all children, born
or unborn. This is a great step in that direction because it ensures that any infant born alive after an abortion receives the same
medical treatment and protection of law that any newborn would. I have already
sponsored multiple pro-life and pro-family bills in the 116th Congress,
and I see this as another important step in the fight for life. As
a co-sponsor of this bill, I’m honored to join
my colleagues in support of this crucial piece of legislation.”
The Born Alive
Survivors Protection Act, introduced by Rep. Anne Wagner (R-MO), proposes
important measures that would protect the life of any child born alive after an
abortion. These measures include requiring health-care practitioners to employ
all skills and health care available to a born-alive baby that would be
otherwise afforded to a newborn, and requiring healthcare practitioners to
report violations of this to law enforcement. Furthermore, this act would
penalize the intentional killing of a born-alive child while providing the
mother of the child civil cause of action and protection from prosecution.
In the 116th Congress,
Representative Brady has supported multiple pieces of pro-life legislation,
- The Life at Conception Act,
sponsored by Rep. Alex Mooney (WV-02), which provides equal protection for the
lives of born and preborn persons.
Planned Parenthood Act, sponsored by Rep. Vicky
Hartzler (MO-04), which prohibits funding Planned Parenthood for one year,
reallocating the savings to community health centers.
- The Pain-Capable Unborn Child
Protection Act, sponsored by Rep. Chris Smith
(NJ-04), which prohibits performing an abortion on an unborn
baby who is 20 week or older.
- The Prenatal Nondiscrimination
Act, sponsored by Rep. Ann Wagner (MO-02), whichprohibits
sex-selected abortions, aborting a child on the basis of the child’s gender.
Child Interstate Abortion Notification Act,
sponsored by Rep. Mike Johnson (LA-04), which makes it a crime to knowingly
transport a minor across a state line, circumventing parental consent and state
notification requirements, in order to obtain an abortion.
