The federal Born Alive Infants Protection Act was introduced in 2000 to provide legal protection to all born babies, wanted or not, including the right to medical care.
In 2002, Born Alive passed unanimously in the U.S. Senate and by overwhelming voice vote in the House. On August 5, President George W. Bush signed the bill into law.
Despite that, numerous accounts from various parts of the country document abortion survivors are still being medically neglected until they die or are outright killed – infanticide.
BornAliveTruth.org exists to expose the shocking truth and pursue enforcement of Born Alive.

"Like the fact that a turtle egg has more legal rights than an unborn baby. It's illegal under the Endangered Species Act to destroy a turtle's eggs, but aborting an unborn baby is legal.
"Like the fact that the number of unborn babies aborted in the United States each year greatly exceeds the number of Americans killed in combat since the Revolutionary War. There have been about 45,000,000 abortions in the United States since the hapless United States Supreme Court said that the government was helpless to protect the unborn.
"The number of unborn babies killed in the United States since Roe v. Wade was decided is more than seven times the number of Jews slaughtered in the Holocaust. Some six million Jews were killed for being Jews in the Holocaust."

HAIL! Holy Babe of Bethlehem,
All hail to Thee!
Right joyously our hearts exclaim,
O Jesu mi!
My God, what brought Thee from above,
A man to be?
What other than a burning love,
O Jesu mi!
A child to us is born this day,
O happy we!
And ours be now Thy praise to say,
O Jesu mi!
But love with love we must repay,
With Mary, Joseph, let us pray,
O Jesu mi!

Vatican II taught, “By his incarnation the Son of God has united himself in some fashion with every human being” (GS, 22). Hence The Gospel of Life states, “It is precisely in the “flesh” of every person that Christ continues to reveal himself and to enter into fellowship with us, so that rejection of human life, in whatever form that rejection takes, is really a rejection of Christ” (EV #104) and again, “life, especially human life, belongs only to God: for this reason whoever attacks human life, in some way attacks God himself” (EV #9).

"With these thoughts, we draw near this night to the child of Bethlehem – to the God who for our sake chose to become a child. In every child we see something of the Child of Bethlehem. Every child asks for our love. This night, then, let us think especially of those children who are denied the love of their parents. Let us think of those street children who do not have the blessing of a family home, of those children who are brutally exploited as soldiers and made instruments of violence, instead of messengers of reconciliation and peace. Let us think of those children who are victims of the industry of pornography and every other appalling form of abuse, and thus are traumatized in the depths of their soul. The Child of Bethlehem summons us once again to do everything in our power to put an end to the suffering of these children; to do everything possible to make the light of Bethlehem touch the heart of every man and woman. Only through the conversion of hearts, only through a change in the depths of our hearts can the cause of all this evil be overcome, only thus can the power of the evil one be defeated. Only if people change will the world change; and in order to change, people need the light that comes from God, the light which so unexpectedly entered into our night."

And she conceived of the Holy Ghost.
Hail Mary, ...
Behold the handmaid of the Lord.
Be it done unto me according to Thy word.
Hail Mary, ...
And the Word was made Flesh.
And dwelt among us.
Hail Mary, ...
Pray for us, O holy Mother of God.
That we may be made worthy of the promises of Christ.
Let Us Pray
Pour forth, we beseech Thee, O Lord, Thy grace into our hearts, that we to whom the Incarnation of Christ Thy Son was made known by the message of an angel, may by His Passion and Cross be brought to the glory of His Resurrection. Through the same Christ Our Lord.

For it is life,
The very life of life.
In its brief course lie all
the realities and truths of existence
the joy of growth
the glory of action
the splendor of beauty.
For yesterday is already a memory
and tomorrow is only a vision
but today well lived makes every
yesterday a memory of happiness
and every tomorrow a vision of hope.
Look well, therefore, to this day!

"God's most blessed gift to His family is the gift of life. He sent us the Prince of Peace as a babe in a manger. I've said that we must be cautious in claiming God is on our side. I think the real question we must answer is, are we on His side?
I know what I'm about to say now is controversial, but I have to say it. This nation cannot continue turning a blind eye and a deaf ear to the taking of some 4,000 unborn children's lives every day. That's one every 21 seconds. One every 21 seconds.
We cannot pretend that America is preserving her first and highest ideal, the belief that each life is sacred, when we've permitted the deaths of 15 million helpless innocents since the Roe versus Wade decision -- 15 million children who will never laugh, never sing, never know the joy of human love, will never strive to heal the sick or feed the poor or make peace among nations. Abortion has denied them the first and most basic of human rights. We are all infinitely poorer for their loss.
There's another grim truth we should face up to: Medical science doctors confirm that when the lives of the unborn are snuffed out, they often feel pain, pain that is long and agonizing.
This nation fought a terrible war so that black Americans would be guaranteed their God-given rights. Abraham Lincoln recognized that we could not survive as a free land when some could decide whether others should be free or slaves. Well today another question begs to be asked: How can we survive as a free nation when some decide that others are not fit to live and should be done away with?
I believe no challenge is more important to the character of America than restoring the right to life to all human beings. Without that right, no other rights have meaning. "Suffer the little children to come unto me, and forbid them not, for such is the kingdom of God."

"More than anything we are called to protect life which is sacred and which is so threatened in our day and age. In this Advent season we must make sure that we have some type of explicit pro-life, pro-marriage or pro-family commitment to others in order to show God how much we appreciate these tremendous gifts of His love."

"When Mary first appeared to Blessed Juan Diego in 1531, Mexico had been in the hands of Christian leaders for only a short time. Human sacrifice, where blood of infants was often spilled to appease the thirsty demons of the old rite, was still practiced surreptitiously, a gruesome continuation of the country's long enslavement to pagan fears. Into this cavern of darkness and ignorance, our Lady of Guadalupe brought a message of maternal compassion. "I am the merciful Mother, the Mother of all of you who live united in this land, and of all mankind, of all those who love me, of those who cry to me, of those who seek me, of those who have confidence in me. Here I will hear their weeping, their sorrow, and will remedy and alleviate their suffering, necessities, and misfortunes." No more did the people need to cower in abject terror before the bloodthirsty gods who demanded the death of their children. They found refuge beneath the gracious protection of a gentle Mother."

Reclaiming Fatherhood: A Multifaceted Examination of Men Dealing With Abortion
Wednesday, December 2, 2009
Therefore, Lord, although I am unable to be at the scene, I offer as a sacrifice all my labors, thoughts, prayers, inconveniences, sufferings and pains of this day to be united especially with the efforts of those who at this very moment are trying to prevent a precious life from being denied the right to see the light of your day. I offer myself with all the Sacrifices of the Holy Masses, which are ascending right now to your Holy Throne, and with all those who are speaking right now to Jesus in the Eucharist on behalf of the preborn, in the hope that even one precious infant's life might be saved, that one mother might hold her child the day of his birth, that one father might carry his offspring even as your Son Jesus Christ was carried by His earthly father.
Precious infant in the womb, hear my longings and remember that God your Father said that even should a mother forget her infant, He will never forget you.(Isaiah 49:15) I too, united with your Heavenly Father, will not forget you and will unite my prayers and fastings this day with all your Spiritual mothers and fathers who either right now are in your physical presence or who are in their homes, workplaces or wherever duty calls. I join also with the unutterable urgings of the Holy Spirit that labors for your birth.
Remember too, God's precious infant, that even as Rachel mourned her children who were no more (Jeremiah 31:15-17), we mourn and hope that the Mother of All Mothers, Mary our Mother, will turn these tears into a hope that no precious infant of God like yourself will have his life taken this day so violently.
Mary, Mother of God and Mother of us all, protect God's precious infants and intercede for them and for us, Spiritual Supporters, who pray and sacrifice daily for their lives, especially for those who at this very moment are in danger.
Finally, we pray that God forgives those mothers who this very day may make the tragic mistake and end the life within them, but more so God, we pray that this mistake not be made.
I offer these prayers to you my Holy Father, through the merits of your Son Jesus, who with You and the Holy Spirit lives and reigns forever and ever. Amen.

"In much of contemporary thinking, any reference to a "law'' guaranteed by the Creator is absent. There remains only each individual's choice of this or that objective as convenient or useful in a given set of circumstances. No longer is anything considered intrinsically "good'' and "universally binding''. Rights are affirmed but, because they are without any reference to an objective truth, they are deprived of any solid basis (cf. Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith, Threats to Human Life, I, iii). Vast sectors of society are confused about what is right and what is wrong, and are at the mercy of those with the power to "create'' opinion and impose it on others.
"The family especially is under attack. And the sacred character of human life denied. Naturally the weakest members of society are the most at risk: the unborn, children, the sick, the handicapped, the old, the poor and unemployed, the immigrant and refugee...
"Do not be afraid to go out on the streets and into public places, like the first Apostles who preached Christ and the Good News of salvation in the squares of cities, towns and villages. This is no time to be ashamed of the Gospel (cf. Rom 1:16). It is the time to preach it from the rooftops (cf. Mt 10:27). Do not be afraid to break out of comfortable and routine modes of living, in order to take up the challenge of making Christ known in the modern "metropolis''. It is you who must "go out into the byroads'' (Mt 22:9) and invite everyone you meet to the banquet which God has prepared for his people. The Gospel must not be kept hidden because of fear or indifference. It was never meant to be hidden away in private. It has to be put on a stand so that people may see its light and give praise to our heavenly Father (cf. Mt 5:15-16)."

God creates human beings in HIS image and likeness. Humans are created out of love by God, Who IS Love. We are made to love and be loved. The degree that we depart from loving is the degree to which we distance ourselves from God. God's rule of life is simple--love Him and love one another. Love is the source of true happiness in this life and for all eternity.
God made the world filled with beauties and wonders of nature for all of His children on earth. He even created faithful animal companions that reflect His unconditional love for us.

"To stem this tide of abortion will require a series of moral miracles. By definition a moral miracle is a visible effect produced by God which exceeds the native powers of the human will. We may be sure that Christ wants to work this miracle. When He rebuked the disciples, and told them to “let the little children come unto me,” He was speaking to all of us. He wants the children conceived to be born, to reach maturity, and glorify Him by their loving service. But Christ demands that we pray in faith and trust in His divine power to change hearts of stone into hearts of selfless love for the unborn.”

"Despite the formidable obstacles before us, we must not lose heart. This is not the first time our country has been divided by a Supreme Court decision that denied the value of certain human lives. The Dred Scott decision of 1857 was not overturned in a day, or a year, or even a decade. At first, only a minority of Americans recognized and deplored the moral crisis brought about by denying the full humanity of our black brothers and sisters; but that minority persisted in their vision and finally prevailed. They did it by appealing to the hearts and minds of their countrymen, to the truth of human dignity under God. From their example, we know that respect for the sacred value of human life is too deeply engrained in the hearts of our people to remain forever suppressed. But the great majority of the American people have not yet made their voices heard..."
