House Passes Abortion Bill

On Jan. 11, the House of Representatives approved a bill on a vote of 220-210 that would require infants born alive after an attempted abortion receive the same protection under the law and degree of care as any newborn. Medical providers could face up to five years in prison for failing to resuscitate babies born alive during abortions. Rep. Henry Cuellar (D-TX) joined Republicans while Rep. Vicente González (D-TX) voted present. The bill is not expected to pass the Senate.

Senate not in session.
