Gov. Steve Bullock, D-MT, vetoed a bill that would require medical attention for babies who survive an abortion. Bullock is considering a run for president in 2020.
Under the bill, doctors would have been required to administer medical care to a baby, provided there was evidence of life – breathing, heart beat, definite movement, or umbilical cord pulsation. Medical professionals who failed to comply could have faced up to a $50,000 fine and 20 years in prison….
In February, a federal Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act failed to achieve the 60 Senate votes necessary to move forward. At the state level, similar legislation has been introduced this year in Texas, Kentucky, Wisconsin, North Carolina, and Kansas.
