Protect Babies Born Alive After Abortion

The governor of Wyoming has signed a bill into law that would ensure babies who survive abortions are not abandoned to die.

Governor Mark Gordon, a Republican, the Born Alive Infant Means of Care Act (Senate File 34), a pro-life bill would require doctors to provide the same “medically appropriate and reasonable steps to preserve the life and health” of a baby born alive from an abortion as they would to any other baby born at the same stage of development. The bill passed the Wyoming House last week on a 48-11 vote after having been approved in the state Senate earlier this session on a 26-4 vote.

Last year, the Wyoming legislature passed the same bill, but Gov. Mark Gordon vetoed it. Gordon, a Republican who says he is pro-life, claimed the bill was unnecessary.

“Laws already in place protect children from being denied life-saving care simply because they were born as a result of an abortion,” he said in his veto statement.
