House Hears Anti-Abortion Testimony on Act That Could Redefine “Personhood”

A US House judiciary panel heard testimony on the so-called “Born Alive Infant Protection Act of 2000”, proposed legislation that could be used by abortion opponents to argue against the “murder” of “persons” in utero. Among others, the panel heard from anti-abortion activist and perennial congressional witness Gianna Jessen, whose biography includes the claim of having survived a failed saline abortion. The legislation was introduced by staunch abortion foe Rep. Charles Canady (R-FL) and has the support of the National Right to Life Committee.
