We're excited to share with you some more good news about our coalition's legislative work! The Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Act (SB405) passed the NC Senate a short while ago by a 28-21 vote.
Everyone should be able to agree that the circumstances surrounding a child at birth should not determine their right to life.
The bill guarantees the right to life of baby girls and boys who were born after an attempted abortion. It also guarantees compassion and perinatal medical services to any infant born alive as a result of an abortion. We thank Senators Joyce Krawiec, Lisa Barnes, and Amy Galey for their work to protect the lives of the tiniest North Carolinians.
Now, we turn to the NC House.
Just yesterday we asked for your help in contacting the NC Senate in support of the bill. Over 1,100+ of you responded in less than 24 hours. We know firsthand that when you take the time to contact your Representative, they not only hear you, but it impacts their attitude towards a bill.
We now need your help ensuring the Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Act (SB405) passes in the NC House.
Could we ask you to keep our legislative momentum going by clicking here to contact your NC House Representatives and asking them to oppose infanticide in NC by voting FOR the Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Act (SB405)?
PS: Do you support the hard work we do advocating for state legislation that protects your values? If so, would you consider making a $10, $25, $50, $100, or more donation towards helping us cover costs related to these efforts?
