Rep. Kristi Noem today led the U.S. House of Representatives in passing the Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act, which requires healthcare professionals to provide care to babies who are born alive after a failed abortion attempt. Noem helped introduce this legislation in 2017.

“So many questions go through the mind of first-time parent, not least of which is ‘What if something goes wrong?’” said Noem. “There’s no doubt that a lot of things can go wrong in a pregnancy, but we find comfort in the fact that there are teams of healthcare professionals there who will do everything they can to save that baby. But what if they stepped back and refused to deliver care to your child? That would be unacceptable. And yet, when a baby is born alive after a failed abortion, that same healthcare professional may not deliver life-saving care. This legislation ensures that every life is given the dignity and care a human being deserves.”
