COLUMBUS, Ohio-- Today, S.B. 157, the Born-Alive Infant Protection Act, passed out of the Ohio Senate by a vote of 25-6. Senate Bill 157 would require a report to be created by the Ohio Department of Health for the abortionist to file if a baby is born alive during a botched abortion. It would also require that the doctors perform life-saving treatment to the baby, as they would to an infant born alive in any other situation.

The following statement may be attributed to Allie Frazier, Director of Communications at Ohio Right to Life:

"Ohio Right to Life applauds Senator Huffman and Senator Johnson, both of whom are licensed physicians in Ohio, for their incredible pro-life leadership. No baby in Ohio, regardless of the circumstances surrounding their birth, should be left alone to die. This vital anti-infanticide legislation will ensure that no baby who survives a botched abortion is denied life-saving care. It will also hold abortionists accountable by establishing a much-needed reporting requirement to document when a child is born alive after an attempted abortion. Ohio Right to Life will continue to advocate for the right to life of every defenseless child, both born and unborn."

Founded in 1967, Ohio Right to Life, with more than 40 chapters and local affiliates, is Ohio's oldest and largest grassroots pro-life organization. Recognized as the flagship of the pro-life movement in Ohio, ORTL works through legislation and education to promote and defend innocent human life from conception to natural death.

    Here are the six who voted against civil rights for newborn babies:

    NAYS
    Hearcel Craig (D) Tina Maharath (D)
    Vernon Sykes (D) Cecil Thomas (D)
    Sandra R. Williams (D) Kenny Yuko (D)

    It is disgraceful that my state senator is one of those pro-abortion Democrats who voted against the bill (Williams).

    Wonderful that our pro-life state senators would support the right of babies who survive abortion to be born! What’s wrong, though, with the six senators who voted against this civil rights bill?
