South Dakota Committee Passes Bill to Stop Infanticide, Protect Babies Who Survive Abortions

A South Dakota House committee advanced legislation Tuesday to protect newborn babies who survive abortions from infanticide. Sponsored by state Rep. Fred Deutsch, R-Brookings, state House Bill 1051 would require that the same basic medical care be provided to a baby who survives an abortion that would be provided to any other baby born at the same gestational age.
