Vote to pass a bill that establishes procedural requirements for abortions that result in the premature birth of a child.

  • Prohibits the mother of a child born alive from being prosecuted for a violation, or attempt and conspiracy to commit a violation involving the child who was born alive, and requires that courts keep the identity of the individual confidential with the use of a pseudonym unless they opt out of such protections (Sec. 1 & 2).
