Death by MURDER…
The Massachusetts House of Representatives rejected an amendment Wednesday that would require a physician to try to save the life of a baby born after an attempted abortion.
The amendment, which reflects the language in current state law, failed on a 30-120 vote.
Two Republican legislators filed the proposed amendment onto a bill seeking to expand access to abortion in the state. (It’s Massachusetts House Bill 5179.)
“This amendment refers to a baby, born alive, having survived an abortion attempt. We’re talking about a human being outside of the womb,” said state Representative Marc Lombaro (R-Billerica), during House debate on Wednesday, December 16.
