Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Actby Representative Tim Huelskamp
Posted on 2015-09-18
HUELSKAMP. Madam Speaker, earlier this year, many of my
colleagues and I stood on this floor condemning abortionist Kermit
Gosnell for his barbaric murder of babies born alive during attempted
abortions. Instead of providing compassionate care for these precious
little babies, Gosnell muffled their cries by snipping the back of
their necks with scissors, and we have people on the floor today
No child should be treated with such violence, and no man or woman should be free to perform such heinous acts of murder.
As an adoptive parent of four incredible children, I cannot help but think of the countless couples across America who would have given anything to care for these babies.
This bill rightly affirms the humanity of all babies born alive, rightly affords them the full protection of the law, and punishes any abortionist who denies these infants their dignity and right to life.
Ms. JUDY CHU of California. Madam Speaker, I continue to reserve the balance of my time.
