HB 1620 would require a physician performing an abortion to provide the same degree of professional care, to preserve the life and health of a child “born alive” as would be required of a physician providing immediate medical care to a child born alive at the same gestational age.

Current law provides that subsequent to the abortion, if a child is born alive, the physician required to be in attendance must exercise the same degree of professional skill, care, and diligence to preserve the life and health of the child as would be required of a physician providing immediate medical care to a child born alive in the course of a pregnancy termination which was not an abortion.
