US House passes legislation protecting life, supporting pregnancy centers

Congressional building

The following quote may be attributed to Alliance Defending Freedom Senior Counsel Denise Burke regarding the U.S. House of Representatives’ passage Wednesday of the Born Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act and a resolution condemning the recent attacks on pro-life organizations:

“Every human life is valuable, and every baby deserves to be protected. By passing the Born Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act, the U.S. House has affirmed the basic human rights of vulnerable children, whether born or unborn, through the provision of critical legal protection for babies who survive abortions. Additionally, today’s concurrent resolution upholds the sanctity of life by recognizing the life-affirming work of the thousands of pregnancy care centers and religious organizations that support pregnant women with real support and resources. For too long, the House has been beholden to the demands of the radical abortion industry. It is encouraging to see representatives take an early, strong stand for life, and we are hopeful for the continued prioritization of the protection of life and the promotion of true health care for women throughout this congressional session.”

Alliance Defending Freedom is an alliance-building, non-profit legal organization committed to protecting religious freedom, free speech, parental rights, and the sanctity of life.
