Beginning Monday, pro-life activists are renewing efforts to convince members of Congress, home for the August recess, to support a vote on legislation that would protect babies who survive abortions.

In the House, Democrats in the majority have blocked Republicans 80 times from setting up a vote on the “born-alive” bill that would protect babies who survive abortion procedures.

Most Americans, however, support a requirement that medical personnel not leave a newborn to die after a failed abortion attempt, Marilyn Musgrave, a Republican who represented Colorado’s 4th Congressional District in the House from 2003 to 2009, told The Daily Signal in a phone interview.

“We’ve done polling on it showing 77 percent of voters support legislation like [Rep. Ann] Wagner introduced,” Musgrave, now vice president of government affairs for the pro-life Susan B. Anthony List, said in the interview Friday.
