Langworthy Supports Born Alive Act

January 12, 2022

From Congressman Langworthy’s Office:

Congressman Nick Langworthy, as an original co-sponsor for the Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act, pledged his support for defending the unborn through legislation that requires medical care for children who survive botched abortion procedures. Additionally, Congressman Langworthy supported the resolution asking Congress to condemn the recent attacks on people and organizations who support pro-life causes.

“I am proudly pro-life and I will always stand up for the unborn,” said Congressman Langworthy. “It’s a horrific stain on our society that we would allow defenseless babies who survive abortions to be left for dead. This bill ensures that every defenseless soul receives medical care and is not callously left to suffer. I also stand in strong condemnation of anyone who attacks a pro-life facility, pregnancy crisis center or church in the name of their radical agenda. These are common sense positions that a majority of Americans can agree with and I would urge my Democrat colleagues to join me in support.”

• The Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act:
o This legislation requires appropriate medical care for children who survive abortion procedures and imposes strong criminal penalties for failure to provide such care. Additionally, the bill protects women upon whom abortions have been performed from prosecution.
o Every unborn child is a precious human life. House Republicans will never stop defending the rights of the most vulnerable among us.
o House Democrats and the Biden administration are wildly out of step with the values of the American people, who disapprove of late-term abortions.
