H.R. 3504: Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act

This was a vote to pass H.R. 3504 in the House.

H.R. 3504 would require that a child born alive during an attempted abortion be given the same medical treatment as any other child born at that gestation time would be. It would impose criminal penalties of fines or imprisonment of up to five years on medical practitioners that fail to do this, as well as punish medical practitioners that intentionally kill or attempt to kill a born-alive child for having intentionally killed or attempted to kill a human being. Related is the Born-Alive Infants Protection Act of 2002, which defined any fetus born alive after an attempted abortion at any age as a human child with all associated rights.

The bill was passed by a vote of 248-177. All opposing votes came from Democrats.
