“If an infant survives an abortion, he or she should be treated with the same degree of professional skill, care and diligence to preserve its life and health that any other infant receives after birth. A so-called ‘right to abortion’ should not translate to a right to a dead child no matter what.”
Tami Fitzergerald, Executive Director, NC Values Coalition
Senate Bill 539 requires doctors to provide the same care to an infant that survives an abortion as they give any other newborn. Simply put, this important legislation would ban infanticide in North Carolina.
