WASHINGTON – Rep. Virginia Foxx, R-N.C., today voted in support of H.R. 4712, the Born Alive Abortion Survivor’s Protection Act, which guarantees legal protection and medical care for abortion survivors, safeguards mothers from prosecution and holds abortionists accountable. Representative Foxx issued the following statement in support of the measure:

“Today is a victory for the pro-life community. The Born Alive Abortion Survivor’s Protection Act advances the culture of life by imposing criminal and financial penalties upon abortionists who intentionally or negligently deny health care to survivors of attempted abortions. Innocent children born in spite of attempted abortions often are at the highest risk of harm, so it is incumbent upon all of us who value life to protect these defenseless children and their mothers.”
