Today Senator Gary Stubblefield and Rep. Charlene Fite filed S.B. 148 banning infanticide and creating protections for infants born alive following a botched abortion.

The bill requires doctors to provide food, water, and medical care to a newborn, thereby preventing babies from simply being left to die following birth. It also says a baby who survives an abortion must be provided immediate medical and emergency care.
