U.S. Capitol 3Congress is gearing up to debate a pro-life bill that will add enforcement to a previous law.  

Brendan O'Morchoe of Students for Life says the Born Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act is directly related to Kermit Gosnell, the Philadelphia abortionist currently serving two life terms after he was convicted of killing babies born alive.

O'Morchoe says the legislation, which will be voted on around the annual March for Life, will make it a crime if the abortionist fails to provide care for a baby that survives an abortion.

A similar bill was signed into law in 2002 but it was did not provide punishment. If passed, this current bill would call for a criminal fine and up to five years in prison, or both.

"It's really incredible we're even having this conversation," says the pro-life activist, "that we're talking about whether or not babies who have been born, who are outside of the womb, ought to be protected with the full force of law."

Lawmakers who oppose such legislation are "outing themselves as an extremist," he adds.
