    6  an attempted abortion, any health care practitioner present at
    7  the time shall humanely exercise the same degree of professional
    8  skill, care, and diligence to preserve the life and health of
    9  the infant as a reasonably diligent and conscientious health
   10  care practitioner would render to an infant born alive at the

   14  born alive will survive due to his or her medical condition, the
   15  physician, with the informed consent and signature of the
   16  pregnant mother, may issue a physician’s order not to
   17  resuscitate the infant.
