West Virginia Republican Gov. Jim Justice signed legislation on Monday that would require doctors to provide medical care to infants born alive after a botched abortion.
The Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act requires doctors to administer medical treatment to babies born alive after a failed abortion. Violators could lose their medical license.
Justice said it was "unbelievable, to tell you the truth, that we have to do such a thing," but said that "today we're going to put a stake in the sand that says for us, for us at least, we stand for life and we stand for the right stuff."
? Colorado Democrats recently voted down a similar bill.
