When Attorney General Eric Holder appeared before the House Judiciary Committee last Wednesday to provide information on a variety of scandals plaguing the Obama administration, he was also questioned about whether he had ever enforced the federal Born Alive Infants Protection Act. Holder’s response was the same as it was 56 other times that day: [...]

Today, Live Action released the third video in its new investigative series, “Inhuman: Undercover in America’s late-term abortion industry.”
In the video released today, a counselor at Family Planning Associates Medical Group in Phoenix, Arizona, tells Live Action’s pregnant investigator she can forgo having her preborn baby injected (through her abdomen) with a drug (Digoxin) to kill him or her, in which case, “It’s possible that there may be movement as they’re taking out the fetus.” And in which case, “They will not resuscitate.” Perhaps more horrifying is that a baby still alive could be aborted in parts:
Video #1: Infanticide in the Bronx: Abortion survivors dunked in poison
UDPATE, 9:42p: Also the New York Times.
5:54a: Today, Live Action is launching a new investigative video series on late-term abortions in America: “Inhuman: Undercover in America’s Late-Term Abortion Industry.”
Was Kermit Gosnell an anomaly? Not if the findings in Live Action’s first released video are any indication.
Dr. Emily’s Women’s Health Center is a late-term abortion clinic located in the Bronx section of New York City, where a wincing 41% of pregnancies end in abortion. A Live Action investigator who was 23 weeks pregnant – with a potentially viable baby – visited this mill for shocking results.
In a Today Show interview taped earlier in the week but airing today, President Obama was (thankfully) asked about Kermit Gosnell. Watch video beginning at 3:00…
Opposed companion bill to Born Alive as state senator that sought to protect abortion survivors from the Gosnells of the world
Although President Obama had no trouble commenting on the ongoing Trayvon Martin case, White House spokesperson Jay Carney said today Obama wouldn’t be commenting on the Kermit Gosnell mass murder case because he “cannot take a position on an ongoing trial” or “comment further on an ongoing legal proceeding”…
~ “Blessed” Obama’s opposition
But this wasn’t the first time Planned Parenthood had opposed such legislation.
Planned Parenthood also actively fought Illinois’ Born Alive Infants Protection Act in the early 2000s, along with then state Senator Barack Obama. This legislation was introduced to protect known abortion survivors.
In fact, Planned Parenthood and Obama worked together as a team. From ABC News, July 17, 2007:

From Parent Society, March 22:
UPDATE 1:25: LifeNews.com has the complete statement, which reiterates that Planned Parenthood is capable of “providing emergency care,” which is again, false, unless PP is equipped to treat preemies.
12:28p: In follow-up to Florida Planned Parenthood lobbyist Alisa LaPolt Snow’s shocking contention last week that the fate of abortion survivors should be left to “the woman, her family, and the physician,” Planned Parenthood gave Sean Hannity this statement yesterday:
… [A] government-funded organization just sent a representative to testify that she is not entirely sure a mother does not have an inalienable right to murder; the president whose administration funds her organization has expressed the exact same sentiments, and in fact voted on them — several times. An honest culture, an honest media would [...]
As reported by The Weekly Standard…
Florida legislators considering a bill to require abortionists to provide medical care to an infant who survives an abortion were shocked during a committee hearing this week when a Planned Parenthood official endorsed a right to post-birth abortion.
Alisa LaPolt Snow [pictured right] 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 PP lobbyist Snow.
