My heart is echoing with a resounding sadness for my country after taking in this video. At the same time, I look at the face of this Planned Parenthood official and feel such an overwhelming disgust that someone who shares my gender could be so cold in the face of what seems an obvious answer to a question to me. Via The Weekly Standard:
Alisa LaPolt Snow, the lobbyist representing the Florida Alliance of Planned Parenthood Affiliates, testified that her organization believes the decision to kill an infant who survives a failed abortion should be left up to the woman seeking an abortion and her abortion doctor.
“So, um, it is just really hard for me to even ask you this question because I’m almost in disbelief,” said Rep. Jim Boyd. “If a baby is born on a table as a result of a botched abortion, what would Planned Parenthood want to have happen to that child that is struggling for life?”
“We believe that any decision that’s made should be left up to the woman, her family, and the physician,” said Planned Parenthood lobbyist Snow.
Rep. Daniel Davis then asked Snow, “What happens in a situation where a baby is alive, breathing on a table, moving. What do your physicians do at that point?”
“I do not have that information,” Snow replied. “I am not a physician, I am not an abortion provider. So I do not have that information.”
Rep. Jose Oliva followed up, asking the Planned Parenthood official, “You stated that a baby born alive on a table as a result of a botched abortion that that decision should be left to the doctor and the family. Is that what you’re saying?”
Again, Snow replied, “That decision should be between the patient and the health care provider.”
Despite the song and dance that Snow undergoes trying to weave her way through the very simple questions, you can easily see they have no problem executing a baby on the table that makes it pass their scalpel and vacuum. Life no longer holds value in this death culture that we’ve embraced. Over 4,000 dead babies EVERY day in this country. And the Mother of this Death Culture is Planned Parenthood. Planned Parenthood has turned into a profit driven industry that continues to be funded through millions and millions of dollars of government grants and subsidies, while making profits yearly in the hundreds of millions.
This is no longer about politics. It’s about human decency. I’m sure that this must be an awfully uncomfortable moment for Ms. Snow as a baby who makes it out alive just goes to show that an abortion doesn’t just make you “unpregnant”…it makes you the mother of a dead baby.
