CONCORD, N.H. — Lawmakers in New Hampshire have rejected a bill that would require abortionists to provide care for babies who are born alive, as well as a bill that would have barred the practice of dismemberment abortions.
House Bill 1627, also known as the “Born Alive Infant Protection Act,” would make criminal denying the infant health care, resulting in his or her death.
“The physician performing an abortion shall take all medically appropriate and reasonable steps to preserve the life and health of a born-alive infant,” it reads in part. “If an abortion performed in a facility other than a hospital results in a live birth, a physician attending the abortion shall provide immediate medical care to the infant and call 9-1-1 for an emergency transfer of the infant to a hospital that shall provide medically appropriate and reasonable care and treatment to the infant.”
