Bill creates Infant Child's Right to Life Act

Posted: Updated:

by Ken Quintanilla

Guam - Senator Frank Aguon Jr. has introduced legislation establishing the Infant Child's Right to Life Act.

Bill 195 recognizes a proposal introduced in a previous legislature that aimed to protect the life of a child who is brought into the world through the abortion process and upon extraction from the mother's womb is found to still be alive.

Aguon's bill requires that in such cases that life must be recognized as a human being and must be extended the right to life. If enacted, any physician, nurse or other licensed healthcare provider who intentionally or knowingly fails to provide reasonable and medically appropriate care and treatment to an infant in the course of an abortion shall be guilty of a criminal homicide.
