Representative Cary Pigman, R-Avon Park, began his freshman year bringing his experience as an emergency medical physician to the forefront, sponsoring House Bill 1129, an act relating to infants born alive.

Pigman introduced the bill to ensure the infants who survive an abortion receive the care they need at an emergency facility.
