Born-Alive Vote Tomorrow

Jan 10, 2023

Tomorrow is going to be incredibly intense. The U.S. House is holding a floor vote on the Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act (HR 26). We must urge representatives on both sides of the aisle to support this bill. TOGETHER, we can stop infanticide in America!

In addition, the House will also be voting on a continuing resolution to condemn the attacks on pro-life facilities, groups and churches (HCR 3).

Abortion “doctors” and others have revealed the shocking truth that infanticide is happening in America, and at a much higher frequency than you could ever imagine. Infanticide has been happening for decades.  

Now we can end infanticide.

Newborn babies can’t fight this on their own. We must speak for them.

Their voices are being drowned in trash cans or buckets of saline solution in dark rooms where there is no one left to hear them—or help them.

That’s why they need YOU to be the hero to save their lives.

The clock is ticking down to this U.S. House vote tomorrow. YOU CAN MAKE A HUGE DIFFERENCE! Fax as many people in Congress as possible right now. —Mat

Prior congressional testimony featured abortion survivors, including Melissa Ohden and Gianna Jessen. After Melissa was born alive following an intended saline abortion, a nurse heard her cry as she was left to die alone. She not only survived but thrived. She now has a master’s degree in social work and testified before the U.S. Senate in 2021. Gianna has a similar survival story.

The abortion “doctors” were not held accountable for attempted infanticide.

Only eight states require reporting when a child survives a botched abortion. Within this small fraction of our nation, more than 170 children were reported as having been born alive after a botched abortion. 

It is shocking that across all 50 states, the Born-Alive Act could affect 1,000 children—or even many more. Despite the huge number of children who face infanticide, abortion advocates are still stuck in their old, worn-out talking points.

  • This is a ploy to restrict abortion (no, this is about newborns).
  • It’s already illegal (not in about 35 states).
  • This is a personal decision (harming or neglecting a child outside the womb is a crime).
  • We should just trust the mother and her doctor (after proof that they both were actively trying to kill this child).

Please do everything in your power to contact these legislators. In a few clicks, you can send them faxes that will get their attention, and faxing is very effective. This is the simplest and easiest way to make your voice heard. 

Melissa said, “Throughout the course of a 5-day period, I endured the deliverance of this saline solution into the fluid around me, breathing it in through my nose and mouth, while numerous rounds of Pitocin were delivered to my mother, to induce labor, and ultimately dispel my dead body from her womb.”

Delivered on the fifth day, “I was believed to be dead ... but I was alive.”

Her birth mother put her up for adoption. “Like a badge of honor, I carried that distinction with me throughout my life, proud to share with others that my parents found me so special.”

Babies who survive these horrific procedures deserve the chance to live.

Send a flood of faxes to Congress to pass this bill.

With the new members in the House, we now have an opportunity to pass the Born-Alive Act. Urge every member of Congress to support this bill with your critical faxes protecting the lives of newborn babies!

By the way, a flurry of activity has begun this week on Capitol Hill. On the House side, movement on the following three issues is coming soon: (1) Ending the omnibus spending bills and requiring individual votes on sections of the budget instead of one vote on the entire bill; (2) Lowering spending being capped at levels from two years ago; and (3) Investigating the investigators like the FBI, DOJ and more. The new House has already passed a bill to defund the 87,000 IRS agents.

We want to give you the tools to know when these key votes are happening so you can make a difference.

We rely on friends and partners to make our mission a reality. Please consider joining us through a monthly recurring donation so we can continue to organize and empower grassroots patriots across America to take action or give a one-time gift today. We cannot win these battles alone.
