U.S. Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA-14) said this week that she is cosponsoring the Life at Conception Act and the Born Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act.
Greene said this in a press release that members of her staff emailed Friday.
“My number one priority is to end the genocide of abortion. Killing a baby in the womb is the worst lie sold to women and it doesn’t solve problems, nor is it women’s ‘healthcare.’ Abortion is the most vile evil committed in America. I’m proud to co-sponsor the Life at Conception Act, which grants rights to babies at the moment they are conceived, and the Born Alive Protection Act, that will protect innocent lives who miraculously escape death,” Greene said in the press release.
“Becoming an original cosponsor to these vital pieces of legislation is just the beginning of my mission to end abortion in America. More powerful pro-life legislation is on the way.”
The Born Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act would, if enacted into law, do the following, according to Greene’s press release:
• Establish pro-life standards for the degree of care that a health care practitioner must exercise in the event a child is born alive following an abortion or attempted abortion.
• Impose legal repercussions to anyone who intentionally kills or attempts to kill a child born alive after an abortion.
• Require the health care practitioner who is present to exercise the same degree of care to a child born alive in the same gestational age to a hospital.
• Give women who undergo or attempt an abortion the right to file a civil action for damages against an individual who violated this bill.
Meanwhile, the Life at Conception Act would, if enacted into law, declare and codify that each human being has the right to life under the U.S. Constitution at all stages of life.
