Kentucky Senate Passes Bill Requiring Medical Care for Abortion-Surviving Babies

With unanimous support, the Kentucky Senate passed a bill requiring medical care to be given to babies who survive abortion in the Blue Grass State. Now, babies who survive the procedure cannot be left to die by the heartless maniacs who ripped them out of their own mothers.

Senate Bill SB9 will now go to the Kentucky House of Representatives for approval before being passed along to the governor. It will require, “medically appropriate and reasonable life-saving and life-sustaining medical care and treatment” to babies who survive abortion attempts. They will now be entitled to, “medically appropriate and reasonable medical care, medical treatment, or surgical care.”

Those who refuse to treat abortion survivors will be charged with a felony under the Kentucky law.

Before the pro-life world celebrates, keep in mind that it’s 100% legal to kill an infant in the womb. But, should they happen to come out of the womb, it is now illegal to not treat them with life-sustaining assistance. This inadvertently sends the message that there’s something distinctive about being outside the womb as opposed to inside the womb.

Isn’t an infant an infant whether born or not?

It is odd to think that an abortion doctor can snuff out a baby’s life, but only moments later if they botch the murder, they are obligated to save the baby’s life. It’s quite perverse.

Pro-lifers need to consider that if they can pass such bills unanimously, certainly they have the votes possible to criminalize abortion to begin with…if only they would have the courage.
