(KFTK) – Congresswoman Wagner introduced a bill last year called the Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act.

“This is a bill passed in the last congress, in the 115th Congress, and we took quick action,” she said on it passing in out of the House.

The US Senate took up the bill this week, and 3 Democrats joined Republicans in voting for the bill, but "it did not get to the 60-vote threshold," needed to end a Democrat filibuster.  

“Nancy Pelosi has blocked this bill from the floor,” the Congresswoman said about Pelosi not wanting this to be a topic of discussion.

Background on the Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act:

• Requires that health care practitioners who are present at the live birth exercise skill, care, and diligence to preserve the life and health of the child—the same degree of care that would be offered to any other child born prematurely the same gestational age. After those efforts, the health care workers must transport and admit the child to a hospital.

• Requires health care practitioners and hospital employees to report violations to law enforcement authorities, reducing the number of born-alive abortions that go unreported.

• Penalizes the intentional killing of a born-alive child through fines or up to 5 years imprisonment.

• Gives the mother of the abortion survivor a civil cause of action and protection from prosecution, recognizing that women are the second victims of abortion and promoting the dignity of motherhood
