Wagner and Scalise on Born Alive Amendment
Washington, D.C. - Congresswoman Ann Wagner (R-MO) and Republican Whip Steve Scalise (R-LA) released the following statement on Rep. Wagner's Born Alive Amendment.
"Democrats refused to consider my amendment to this week’s appropriations package that would have prevented government funding of entities that will not protect babies who survive abortion. Babies who survive abortions deserve lifesaving care, and my Born Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act would protect them at the very moment they need our help the most." - Rep. Ann Wagner (R-MO)
“The federal government should never fund abortions and the thought that federal funds might go to organizations that let babies who survive an abortion die is just sickening. I strongly support Rep. Wagner’s amendment and encourage the House to go further. The Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act should be passed into law immediately. All life is sacred and must be protected.” - Republican Whip Steve Scalise (R-LA)
