To The Daily Sun,
Congresswoman Ann Kuster recently voted against HR-421, a bill that essentially strengthens the bipartisan and popular Born-Alive Infants Protection Act. That bill was passed to protect individuals who are born, despite efforts made to end its live in utero.
Americans are clearly conflicted on the morality of abortion. However, in the case of the child who survives attempts to end its life it is a moral absolute for the world to care for him or her. Sadly, there are numerous stories of this law being blatantly ignored, and so this new law seeks to strengthen attempts to protect the innocent child from being erased from existence, taking away its potential for a good and happy life. As a criminal justice major at Saint Anselm College, I recently learned the importance that law plays in ensuring that we are required to protect the life of an adult, why are you were unwilling to extend such protections to the children of this state and nation?

Fortunately, the bill passed without Congressman Kuster's support, and heads on to the Senate. I only hope our senators can do a better job at protecting our children, as this bill heads there.
