Protecting the sanctity of human life is something America must always strive to do as a country that values individual and natural rights. The Declaration of Independence states are the rights to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness, and those are owed to every citizen of this nation.
All American lives, including babies and the unborn, are entitled to these rights.
However, as evil exists in the world, governors like Virginia’s Ralph Northam agree with the popular idea on the Left that we should allow women to commit late-term abortions, even post-birth if the mother so decides.
“If a mother is in labor, I can tell you exactly what would happen. The infant would be delivered. The infant would be kept comfortable. The infant would be resuscitated if that’s what the mother and the family desired, and then a discussion would ensue between the physicians and the mother,” Northam disgustingly said in 2019.
It’s sickening and shocking that any person, especially an American politician, thinks it’s acceptable to kill not just the unborn, but newborns too.
Combatting this increasingly common idea that murdering babies is an acceptable practice, Wyoming Governor Mark Gordon signed the “Born Alive Act” on Wednesday, requiring doctors to treat any infant born alive after a botched abortion.
The Wyoming House voted 48-11 to pass Senate File 34 which will go into effect this July.
Under the bill, doctors are legally obligated to use “commonly accepted means of care” for “the treatment of any infant born alive.”
“Any physician performing an abortion shall take medically appropriate and reasonable steps to preserve the life and health of an infant born alive,” the legislation states.
Wyoming’s new infant protection law comes nearly two years after former President Trump signed a “born alive” executive order that ordered the Department of Health and Human Services to ensure that hospitals provide life-saving medical care to babies who survive botched abortions.
“Every infant born alive, no matter the circumstances of his or her birth, has the same dignity and the same rights as every other individual and is entitled to the same protections under federal law,” the order reads.
Wyoming has become the 17th state to sign “born alive” protections into law, according to Family Research Council. The other 33 states do not protect babies who survive abortions.
How it is not widely presumed to be a human right to continue living after being born is incomprehensible. But thankfully, some states are taking action to protect our country’s most vulnerable.
