Born-Alive Act Redux!

Mirable Dictu: The Born-Alive Infants Protection Act is back again, and it was among the very first things enacted by the new House with the Republicans back in control. It is not going to be enacted in this Congress. But it will have put a mark on the political terrain, and it has brought forth, in the House of Representatives, a group of pro-life politicians who somehow manage to do better than the legal professionals [1] who have been presuming over the years to tutor them.
