Dear Senator Sasse and Congresswoman Wagner,

On behalf of the more than 2.3 million members of AMAC – the Association of Mature American Citizens – I write to express our support for S. 123 and H.R. 619, the Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act.

As an organization comprised of age 50-plus Americans who passionately support the sanctity of life from conception to natural death, we are grateful to see courageous legislation that advocates for the most vulnerable of our society emanating from elected leaders in Washington.

Your bills protect the life of a child who is born alive following an abortion or an attempted abortion. They require health care practitioners to employ the same degree of care as provided to any other child who is born alive and compels them to immediately admit the child to the hospital.

Any failure to comply with the requirements in your bills would be reported to law enforcement officials and violators would be subject to criminal penalties. Importantly, anyone who intentionally kills or attempts to kill a child born alive would be subject to prosecution for murder.

Thank you, Senator Sasse and Congresswoman Wagner and your cosponsors, for proposing such vital and necessary legislation. AMAC stands with you in this fight and we are pleased to offer our organization’s support for the Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act.

Sincerely,
Bob Carlstrom
President, AMAC Action
