Texas Senate backs ‘born alive’ abortion bill

The Texas Senate gave initial approval Monday to a bill requiring doctors who perform abortions to treat a baby born alive during the procedure — an extremely rare event, the measure’s Republican author said, but one consistent with promoting a “culture of life” in Texas.

“If it’s one life, one life out of a million, it’s worth saving,” said Sen. Lois Kolkhorst, R-Brenham.

Senate Bill 23 requires doctors who perform abortions to “render aid, to do all they can to save that child,” she said.

Doctors who decline to provide medical treatment could be charged with a third-degree felony and face a sentence of two to 10 years in prison. They also could be sued by the Texas attorney general to collect a civil penalty of “not less than $100,000.”
