Rally Held Outside Rep. Lamb’s Office to Support the Born Alive Act, End Infanticide

Jeremy Samek, Senior Counsel for Pennsylvania Family Council, gave the following comments outside of Congressman Conor Lamb’s Allegheny County district office urging support for the Born Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act.

When my oldest son was born, he required immediate medical intervention and a major surgery the day after he was born and another a week later.

Yet, there are two classes of babies being born today. There are those like my son, a human being who will receive medical care and who the medical personnel in the room will attempt to save. The other class of babies born have survived a failed abortion attempt.

Bill HR 962 will ensure that a baby who survives a failed abortion will be given the same medical treatment as any other baby born prematurely at the same age and be admitted immediately to the nearest hospital.

Representative Lamb, I know the leaders of your party do not support this and do not want to have a vote on this. I know you probably don’t want to vote on this because you’ve voiced your full support for ending human life in the womb.

However, backing compassionate, common-ground legislation to protect babies who survive abortion should be the easiest vote you ever cast.

Rep. Lamb, it is not too late. I ask you, take a first step, and stand up to your party bosses and take a stand against infanticide. 

You’ve said before, “I do believe that life begins at conception and I’ve always believed that and I believe it in all cases. However, I also believe in the separation of church and state. And, what we’re running for here is Congress, not Cardinal.”

Rep. Lamb, you are correct that a unique human life with all its new DNA does begin at conception. But that is a scientific fact, not a mere article of faith. I hope you think about that quote often and realize the errors you’ve made.

During the abolition of slavery movement, Congressmen and Cardinals believed black people were human beings who deserved protection of the law. I can assure you, neither protecting young life nor black life violates the establishment clause.

Rep. Lamb, when our country deemed another group of human beings as those which could legally be enslaved and killed, it took both Congressmen and Cardinals to end it.

Now as our country has deemed yet another group of human beings as less than a person whom can be killed, it will again take Cardinals as well as Congressmen. It takes congressmen with the courage to stand up to their own party.

Please, protect all life. Sign on to the discharge petition for the Born Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act to protect babies born alive during failed abortions.

Please let these babies live! Whatever they want to call it, it is really murder and nothing else

Mary Moran

We have been shamelessly fooled by the powerful abortion industry and its wealthy supporters for too long-every human being has the right to life. Mothers who don’t wish to raise their child can receive help and adoption information from pregnancy support centers; there is never a reason to end a growing child’s life.

Ada Taveras

Please choose life and not death for these babies that know nothing. Let us unite in this battle for life. We should not have to vote for life, it’s insane what is happening.

Sonja Kassouf

Well stated: it’s a scientific fact ,not a matter of faith, that a child born prematurely whether by failed abortion or natural birth is a human baby and should be treated humanely. Do we not consider ourselves civilized and compassionate? And at a time when so many would like to adopt?

Anne Pierson

It is important that we as a nation, stand for those who are born even if it is premature. They are still children and may bring greatness to our world.


Shame on anyone – especially leaders – who will cave to the culture, and hide behind self serving rhetoric to continue this crime against the ultimate of innocents.

Lisa Brandley

Please fight for what you believe I never thought I would see the murder of innocent babies cause that us what it is murder.
Before I formed you in the womb I knew and approved of you Jeremiah 1:5

Carolyn Oppenheimer

What a great speach! Good job Jeremy and all that attended. It is a tragedy that a state would legally permit a born baby to die, or leave it to die. WE are not a third world country! To continue to be inspired to fight for this great Bill, I suggest watching a speech by Gianna Jessen on YouTube. She is an abortion survivor and she is a a gifted speaker .

It’s actually a great and helpful piece of
info. I am glad that you shared this helpful information with us.

Please keep us up to date like this. Thanks for sharing.

Given Conor Lamb was a Marine, claims to be a Catholic and is a US politician, I appealed to his ‘foundation’ of protecting ALL American lives!

Tonight I heard you say you were not going to sign the Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act. I ask you Conor, how can a Marine NOT fight to save American lives? You wouldn’t be a respectable Marine. How can a Catholic justify fetal homicide? You would be an empty soul. How can any US politician that vows to protect American lives NOT rescue an infant born in the United States that may be a product of a botched abortion? You can’t! To not defend American-born babies struggling to survive is not only cruel, but UN-American!
