Yesterday the North Carolina House failed to override Governor Roy Cooper’s veto of the North Carolina Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act (or SB 359). While the effort came up short only a handful of votes, it’s important to hold state legislators accountable for their votes, especially when it’s something as important as ending infanticide.
Please take a minute to email your state representative now and thank them for voting for to override Gov. Cooper’s veto, or let them know you are disappointed in their voting against the override motion! Click the link below to get started.
SB 359 ensures born-alive abortion survivors are given the same life-saving medical treatment as any other newborn and would hold abortionists responsible should they cause the death of infants born-alive following an abortion.
According to the North Carolina General Assembly’s nonpartisan staff, state law currently lacks these protections for abortion survivors. SB 359 is necessary to ensure equal treatment for all infants.
We should all agree babies born-alive following a failed abortion are endowed with the same humanity as any other newborn baby. Discrimination against them by allowing them to be victims of the same sort of atrocities committed by Dr. Kermit Gosnell is reprehensible.
After New York and Illinois passed legislation expanding late-term abortion and celebrated the repeal of protections for born-alive abortion survivors - and the shocking comments made by Virginia Governor Ralph Northam - Americans are waking up to the realization that the radical abortion agenda is a betrayal of the responsibility to protect the most vulnerable among us. Protecting born-alive abortion survivors should not be hard to do.
The good news is polling shows that an overwhelming majority of Americans oppose infanticide because it is antithetical to everything we stand for as a nation. Infanticide must end.
