Shouldn't These Abortionists Be Held Accountable?

Jan 14, 2023

Abortion “doctors” and others have revealed the shocking truth that infanticide is happening in America, and at a much higher frequency than you could ever imagine. Infanticide has been happening for decades.  

We have a chance to stop it with a bill in Congress. The Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act has passed in the House and is now in the Senate.

Prior congressional testimony featured abortion survivors, including Melissa Ohden and Gianna Jessen. After Melissa was born alive following an intended saline abortion, a nurse heard her cry as she was left to die alone. She not only survived but thrived. She now has a master’s degree in social work and testified before the U.S. Senate in 2021. Gianna has a similar survival story.

The abortion “doctors” were not held accountable for attempted infanticide.

Only eight states require reporting when a child survives a botched abortion. Within this small fraction of our nation, more than 170 children were reported as having been born alive after a botched abortion.  

It is shocking that across all 50 states, the Born-Alive Act could affect 1,000 children—or even many more. Despite the huge number of children who face infanticide, abortion advocates are still stuck in their old, worn-out talking points.

  • This is a ploy to restrict abortion (no, this is about newborns).
  • It’s already illegal (not in about 35 states).
  • This is a personal decision (harming or neglecting a child outside the womb is a crime).
  • We should just trust the mother and her doctor (after proof that both were actively trying to kill this child).

Please do everything in your power to contact these legislators. In a few clicks, you can send them faxes that will get their attention, and faxing is very effective. This is the simplest and easiest way to make your voice heard.

Melissa said, “Throughout the course of a 5-day period, I endured the deliverance of this saline solution into the fluid around me, breathing it in through my nose and mouth, while numerous rounds of Pitocin were delivered to my mother, to induce labor, and ultimately dispel my dead body from her womb.”

Delivered on the fifth day, “I was believed to be dead ... but I was alive.”

Her birth mother put her up for adoption. “Like a badge of honor, I carried that distinction with me throughout my life, proud to share with others that my parents found me so special.”

Babies who survive these horrific procedures deserve the chance to live.

Urge the Senate to support this bill with your critical faxes protecting the lives of newborn babies!
