Synopsis As Introduced
Amends the Statute on Statutes. Defines the terms "person", "human being", "child", and "individual" to include every infant member of the species homo sapiens who is born alive at any stage of development. Defines "born alive" to mean the complete expulsion or extraction from the mother of an infant, at any stage of development, who after such expulsion or extraction breathes or has a beating heart, pulsation of the umbilical cord, or definite movement of voluntary muscles, regardless of whether the umbilical cord has been cut and regardless of whether the expulsion or extraction occurs as a result of natural or induced labor, cesarean section, or induced abortion. Provides that nothing in these definitions shall be construed to affirm, deny, expand, or contract any legal status or legal right applicable to any member of the species homo sapiens at any point prior to being born alive.

House Committee Amendment No. 1
Provides that the definition of "born alive" shall not be construed (i) to affect existing federal or State law regarding abortion or (ii) to alter generally accepted medical standards.
