Star Parker: Born Alive Infants Protection Act needs to be enforced

by Kelli My colleagues found in their investigations around the nation that [abortionist Kermit] Gosnell was by no means one of a kind. There are more. And, to our dismay, irresponsible and inhumane behavior continues regarding the treatment of women, particularly low-income minority women, in these facilities. The grand jury that investigated Gosnell speculated why […]

Refuting the false claim that babies don’t survive abortions

RH Reality Check’s Andrea Grimes and Sharona Couttwrote a piece last week deeming it a “myth” that babies survive abortions:

AG Eric Holder: “I don’t know” if DOJ ever enforced Born Alive Act

Live Action video #3: Infanticide in AZ: “They will not resuscitate”

2013-05-02_1204Today, Live Action released the third video in its new investigative series, “Inhuman: Undercover in America’s late-term abortion industry.”

We have already seen willingness by personnel at an abortion clinic in New York and in Washington, D.C. to either kill abortion survivors outright, or let them asphyxiate.

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:

BREAKING: Live Action launches new investigation on late-term abortions

Video #1: Infanticide in the Bronx: Abortion survivors dunked in poison

2013-04-28_0352

UDPATE, 9:42p: Also the New York Times.

UDPATE, 6:40p: Melinda Henneberger at the Washington Post is reporting on this story, as is The Daily Caller, Kathryn Jean Lopez at National Review Online, PolicyMic, Fox News, and Hot Air.

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.

Obama dances around topic of Gosnell

Obama-Gosnell

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…

Obama can’t comment against Gosnell, because Obama stands with him

Opposed companion bill to Born Alive as state senator that sought to protect abortion survivors from the Gosnells of the world

2013-04-15_1506

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”…

Planned Parenthood has opposed other anti-infanticide legislation: IL Born Alive Act

~ “Blessed” Obama’s opposition

 
479830_433518370067175_1027146459_nPlanned Parenthood’s recent opposition to Florida legislation seeking to protect abortion survivors sent shock waves around the country.

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:

Would it be legal to abort this baby?

From Parent Society, March 22:

Planned Parenthood lying about ability to “provide appropriate care” to abortion survivors

Arena2CrashCartUPDATE 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:

TakeCareDownThereA persistent stigma surrounding abortion ensures that the people who provide these services continue to be construed as morally corrupt.

Just like the original version of HB 305 would have banned abortion clinic employees from providing any type of services in public schools, some states have taken this idea to an extreme. Last year, Kansas attempted to ban abortion providers from schools altogether in a sweeping provision that could have prevented parents who work at Planned Parenthood from volunteering to chaperone their kids’ field trips.

That measure didn’t pass, but the attitude remains — people who support abortion shouldn’t be allowed around kids. Other types of professions aren’t singled out in this way in proposed laws.

~ Tara Culp-Ressler, ThinkProgress.org, April 14

[Note: The author describes HB 305, "spearheaded by Rep. Frank Hoffmann (R)", as "intend[ing] to prohibit abortion providers from disseminating materials in publicly funded schools. The original version of the bill would have prevented employees at groups like Planned Parenthood from providing any type of instruction to students whatsoever — but Hoffman ended up amending the legislation to narrow the scope, banning abortion providers from instructing students about topics related to ‘human sexuality or family planning.’” For an example of some of Planned Parenthood’s finest student info on sexuality, see this info on Take Care Down There.]
