Marjorie Dannenfelser, president of the Susan B. Anthony (SBA) List, decried Governor Steve Bullock's veto of the Montana Born-Alive Infant Protection Act.
"Once again Governor Bullock sides with abortion extremists, going so far as to veto compassionate, popular legislation designed to provide care for children who survive failed abortions," she said in a press release.
The veto was among seven measures blocked by Bullock this week.
Sponsored by Republican Sen. Al Olszewski, the bill passed through the Senate and House in April. The legislation would have required medical professionals to provide "appropriate lifesaving or life-sustaining medical care" to any baby who survives an abortion attempt.
Under the bill, doctors would have been required to administer medical care to a baby, provided there was evidence of life - breathing, heart beat, definite movement, or umbilical cord pulsation.
