2 New Pro-life Bills Introduced

From Oregon Right to Life :

“We just introduced two pieces of pro-life legislation in the 2020 Oregon legislative short session: the Born-Alive Infants Protection bill and the Pain-Capable Infants Protection bill.”

“Since radically pro-abortion Democrats have supermajorities in both the House and Senate, we need every advocate in Oregon to take action to help these bills. “

“Oregon’s current state of law is reprehensible. Will Oregon legislators perform their duty of protecting vulnerable Oregonians or not? Let’s hold them accountable to their short session record in the 2020 elections.”

Descriptions of the bills are from Oregon Right to Life

Born-Alive Infants Protection:
SB 1523

“This bill requires abortion providers to exercise a proper degree of care to preserve the health and life of a baby born alive during or after an abortion. The bill also requires that a baby born during an abortion procedure be immediately transported and admitted to a hospital for care.”

Pain-Capable Infants Protection: 
HB 4048

“This bill would ban abortions after 20 weeks gestation. The bulk of science proves that babies are capable of experiencing pain by 20 weeks gestation. HB 4048 would require an abortion provider to first determine the gestational age of a baby before performing an abortion. If violated, the abortion provider’s license would be subject to review by the Oregon Health Authority.”
