Bedford, NH- House Majority Leader Jason Osborne (R-Auburn) released the following statement in response to the House overturning the committee report and passing HB233, relative to the right of any infant born alive to medically appropriate and reasonable care and treatment, on a vote of 181-49.

“I do not understand how any infant who is born alive would not be given basic medical care under full protection of the law,’ said Osborne. ‘There is absolutely no reason why any child born alive should be left to die. I do not see this as a pro-choice vs. pro-life issue. This is an issue of basic human rights protected under our constitution, and this right should extend to those who cannot yet advocate for themselves. I applaud the House for overturning the committee report and passing this bill despite House Democrats’ attempt at obstructing House business.”
