You and I must pray for the very heart and soul of our country, and we must continue our efforts to strengthen every Bible-believing church and Christian who will speak the truth of the Gospel into their communities.

Forty-four statewide-elected senators voted against legal protections requiring the medical care of BORN children last week. Elected officials, claiming to represent the will of entire states who sent them to our nation’s capital, opposed S.311, the Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act.

S.311 is a simple, powerful bill that would have protected potentially thousands of children by requiring that “any health care practitioner present at the time the child is born alive shall—(A) exercise the same degree of professional skill, care, and diligence to preserve the life and health of the child as a reasonably diligent and conscientious health care practitioner would render to any other child born alive at the same gestational age; and (B) following the exercise of skill, care, and diligence required . . . ensure that the child born alive is immediately transported and admitted to a hospital.”

The thin veil used by journalists, activists, politicians, and corporate abortion giants slipped. Some who opposed the Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act made dubious claims. Others told outright lies. And most in the popular media simply ignored it, keeping millions of audience members in darkness. Thank you for shining the light of God’s truth on the war on children.

Opponents of S.311 claimed that the Born-Alive Infants Protection Act of 2002 (which passed unanimously) made the personhood, medical requirements, and enforcement provisions of the bill unnecessary. However, numerous state legislative efforts and the recent public comments in favor of infanticide by Virginia Governor Ralph Northam, State Delegate Kathy Tran, and their supporters raise grave concerns.

The 2002 changes to the U.S. Code established simple personhood of born children, but it defined no federal penalty for infanticide. S.311 explicitly protects a newborn from a botched abortion: “Whoever intentionally performs or attempts to perform an overt act that kills a child born alive described under subsection (a), shall be punished as under section 1111 of this title for intentionally killing or attempting to kill a human being.”

You and I have an obligation to expose this war on children—the hidden effort to brainwash, violate, or outright kill our youth. Thank you for sharing this article and speaking out for life for those who cannot speak themselves.
