WASHINGTON, DC -- Today, as thousands of Americans filled the National Mall in support of the annual March for Life in Washington, DC, the U.S. House of Representatives passed the Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act, H.R. 4712 . The pro-life legislation mandates medical care and legal protection for any child born alive during an attempted abortion procedure, while protecting mothers from prosecution and holding abortionists accountable who do not utilize life-saving measures for infants that survive.

"While the March for Life took place on Capitol grounds today, my colleagues and I stood with them on the House floor, voting to protect the sanctity of life," said Congressman Rogers. "This legislation takes another step to protect these innocent babies, by charging practioners who fail to report or provide life-saving measures for the rare abortion survivors. Every life deserves a voice and a fighting chance of survival."

Last year, the House Select Investigative Panel on Infant Lives reported abortions and abortion facilities are being incentivized by illicit fetal-tissue traffickers to harvest infant organs. H.R. 4712 will hold those practicitioners accountable.

Last year, Rogers also voted for the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act , restricting abortions after 20 weeks of pregnancy. Both bills now await consideration by the U.S. Senate.
