The Born Alive discharge petition is being launched today, April 14. Minority Whip Rep. Steve Scalise (R-Louisiana) joined Reps. Ann Wagner (R-Missouri) and Kat Cammack (R-Florida) as the first signers.
Concerned Women for America Legislative Action Committee, CEO and President Penny Young Nance had this to say on the discharge petition:
“Our humanity demands that we stand and protect the least of these, so why won’t a Democrat majority allow a vote on a bill to protect babies born alive from attempted abortion? These innocent ones are human beings with inherent dignity and worth. We urge every U.S. House member to sign the discharge petition for the Born Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act. A vote to prevent infanticide shouldn’t be an act of courage; it should be a requirement for service.”
