Comments
In Section 2 of AB 179, we oppose the exemption from prosecution for mothers who kill their own children after an abortion.The exemption erodes the equal protection granted in current law 990.001(17) for born alive babies following failed abortions.

Comments
We believe Section 2 of the bill is unnecessary and imprudent. Anyone who intentionally kills a child born alive, regardless of the conditions resulting in the child being born alive, should be held responsible under the law.
