The bill establishes a physician-patient relationship between a
child born alive after or during an abortion and the physician who
performed or attempted to perform the abortion. The bill requires the
physician to exercise the same degree of professional skill, care, and
diligence to preserve the life and health of the child as a reasonably
diligent and conscientious physician would render to any other child born

alive at the same gestational age and requires that the child born alive be
immediately transferred to a hospital. The bill creates a civil penalty of
$100,000 for a violation enforceable by the attorney general, makes a
violation a class 3 felony, and makes a conviction unprofessional conduct
for licensing purposes.
