Colorado Dems Kill Bill Protecting Babies Born Alive After Failed Abortions

Democrats on a Colorado state House panel last night defeated a pro-life bill to ensure babies who survive failed abortions receive appropriate medical care and protection.

In a party-line vote of 7-6, members of the Public Health Care and Human Services Committee killed the Born Alive Infant Protection Act, HB 1112.

Leading pro-abortion groups NARAL and Planned Parenthood encouraged the Democrats on the panel to reject the bill, which they did on a party line vote with Republicans supporting it, by claiming babies are not born alive after abortions in Colorado. That’s despite the fact that the Centers for Disease Control reports at least 1,200 babies born alive after botched abortions in one year alone.

In 2011, the CDC recorded 1,298 cases of infant death in the U.S. due to “Other perinatal conditions,” which includes ICD-10 category P96.4, death subsequent to a failed “termination of pregnancy.”
