U.S. Capitol 2Though not enough U.S. House members have signed on to protect babies born alive during abortions, the NRLC sees reason to hope that things are headed in the right direction.

Carol Tobias of the National Right to Life Committee (NRLC) tells OneNewsNow two more pro-life Republicans – Mike Garcia of California and Tom Tiffany of Wisconsin -- have been added to the House of Representatives.

"They were sworn in on Tuesday, May 19th, and the very first action that they took was to go sign the discharge petition asking that the Born Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act come to the floor for a vote," Tobias reports.

The bill, which would require that babies born alive during abortions be given the same medical attention a premature baby would receive at that gestational age, has been languishing in a Democrat-controlled House committee for some time. A discharge petition would force a vote.

"Nancy Pelosi is not letting the bill come to the floor for a vote, so the discharge petition, if it gathers 218 signatures, would automatically bring the bill to the floor for a vote," the pro-lifer explains. "With the new signatures, we now have 205 members … so we need 13 Democrats to cross the aisle and say that they think these children should be protected."

Kermit Gosnell is a Philadelphia abortionist serving a life sentence for killing babies who were born alive during his failed abortion procedures. This federal measure would require that such babies be treated on the spot at the clinic and then in a hospital emergency room.
