Planned Parenthood Lobbyist: Of Course We Support Post-Birth ‘Abortion’ – Doesn’t Everyone?

1245320664_20040744_22_weeks011

Tell me again why this is not infanticide?

I’m confused. One of the definitions of “abort,” according to Merriam-Webster, is: “to terminate a procedure prematurely.” Another is: “to bring forth stillborn, nonviable, or premature offspring.” Call me stupid, but how can murdering a baby born alive be classified as “abortion”?

Alisa LaPolt Snow, a Planned Parenthood lobbyist, sees it a tad bit differently: The decision to kill an infant who survives a failed abortion should be left up to the woman seeking the abortion – and her abortion doctor. (No word yet on whether a lobbyist has stepped forward for newborn children.)

Okay, so let me get this straight: “premature offspring” refers to any baby a woman decides she doesn’t want? And, “abortion” can be defined as murdering an unwanted child – even after it’s born? Got it.

From 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, 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.”

“I think that at that point the patient would be the child struggling on the table, wouldn’t you agree?” asked Oliva.

“That’s a very good question. I really don’t know how to answer that,” Snow said. “I would be glad to have some more conversations with you about this.” Continue reading…

Like hell she would. Pro-abortion advocates – yes, pro-abortion, as opposed to the oh so “progressive” sounding “pro-choice” misnomer – believe in one thing and one thing alone: removing the “burden” of an unwanted child from the life a woman who wasn’t smart enough to avoid pregnancy – but is now “smart” enough to erase her “mistake.” Here’s the video:

Incidentally, not only did then-Illinois state senator Barack Obama vote against the “Born-Alive Infants Protection Act” three times; Mooch is on record for referring to partial birth abortion as “a legitimate medical procedure.” This is your “First Family,” America.

P.S. Can we get something else straight, here? An abortionist is not a “healthcare provider.” The intent of healthcare is to save lives – not end them.

  1. WTH separates this viewpoint from that of Dr Josef Mengele, Adolf Hitler, Josef Stalin, Benito Mussolini, Charles Darwin, H G Wells, Margaret Sanger & Thomas Malthus? Absolutely nothing–they were all staunch believers in &/or practitioners of eugenics, which is govt sanctioned murder via a tyrannical regime, in some instances–also referred to as murderers in common sense terminology! These people are beyond despicable & the genocide they actively promote is nothing short of reprehensible! They only take issue with the deaths of small children once they are in school apparently, but not one of them will stand up to protest the horrific crimes committed ostensibly in the name of “birth control”!!

    • Exactly, Liz, and like the despicable characters you mentioned, the left tries to hide itself behind misnomers. “Pro-choice” and “a woman’s right to choose” are no more than code words for one thing and one thing alone: The “right” to murder unborn children. Although, as we see here, they also want a second shot if the first attempt fails.

      • Rat: You are absolutely correct! The Left loves to hide behind their numerous “polite” little euphemisms of “choice” & “reproductive rights” & “personal right to privacy” which are all code words covering up the uncomfortable truth that they engage in genocide of small, defenseless babies whose only “crime” is being the “unintended consequence” of irresponsible, immoral & immature sexual practices which the Left loves to champion!

  2. And so here we have it. It should be unbelievable that anyone would even think this but, coming from these ah-people, I guess, I’m not even surprised, and that is very bad for the future of humanity.

  3. This makes me weep for the little ones!

  4. Rat we ended our comments Easter Sunday afternoon with ” we have a lot for which to be thankful.” Are we kidding ourselves? Seeing the picture on site today, I questioned “God Bless the USA?” I brought up Lee Greenwoods’s “God Bless the USA.” Couldn’t punch the button to listen right now. Not to quote Rev. Jeremiah Wright, but maybe what’s going on now, war, drought, floods, storms, election of heathens to office is God’s wrath, negative blessings to get our attention. Not prosthelytizing, just personally calling it as it seems to me. Thankful maybe ’cause it hasn’t gotten worse…yet!

    • I too question why so much in America (and the world as a whole) that is bad is now “good” – and vice versa, unit. God’s way of getting our attention? Separating the wheat from the chaff?

      Makes you wonder.

      I know the picture is graphic – but I wanted to illustrate what these despicable people are doing – daily.

      • No problem with graphics. Except for lack of money, should be on every billboard in “God’s Country.” Soros money is what it would take. Put the pic on every bill, dollar up, and have to hold up to light to see the holigram (whatever its called, like Andy Jackson on the twenty) on the right of the said ball to be sure for real. Congrease should be able to accomplish that. Huh?

  5. Um, I hate to put a damper on everthing guys.. but its APRIL 1ST …. ~facepalm~

  6. You’re implying that this is a hoax. Suggest you google Ms. Snow and find that she is a lobbyist for planned parenthood in Tallahassee, FL. This was carried on a number of (admittedly conservative) news outlets and websites. I’m sure Ms. Snow would be suing if this were false.

  7. Who cares whether it’s infanticide or not? If a parent doesn’t want a child, who are you to force a child to grow up unwanted? I’d rather be killed in infancy than live with a parent who never wanted me in the first place.

    • Oh JP! I am so sorry! There are so many childless people out here that crave a baby to love, nurture, raise, love and guide. (Notice I said love twice?)
      I’m quite certain that a child, if not wanted by his or her parents, would be more than welcome in any number of homes.
      Just because the parent does not want them does not mean that someone else doesn’t either.
      That really is not excuse to murder a helpless little one.
      I’m not trying to argue with you, I’m just stating there are other ways, if you don’t want the little one.

    • “Who cares whether it’s infanticide or not?”

      Really? That is the coldest, most asinine comment made on RR since I can remember. (The answer, by the way, is The United States Supreme Court, all 50 states and decent human beings everywhere.)

  8. Well all we got to do is pass a state or federal law, and the sheriff has to uphold it. After we pass a law that the sheriff has to uphold it or be fired. Then pass a law that the mother and father carry a picture like the one here in the picture holder in their wallet. Show it off to all they meet and say…”Who was to say? We said we knew it was best to murder our child as we knew they would rather die in infancy than know they were not loved by us.”
    Someone said America is done, stick a fork in it.

  9. No we have to keep keeping on. It’s said tell a lie long enough and people will believe its true. I think it’s more like so many become weary and tired. I know this is making me weary and tired. Franklin wanted the national bird to be the turkey, roasted and done, sticking in a fork squirts the juice of Thanksgiving for liberty and freedom. They chose the eagle soaring high above ever watchful to danger. I think the proponents of this discussion as right thing to do would vote for the vulcher. What do they do with the remains anyway? I know… incinerator. That’s that. Red bag it. Out of sight, out of mind. Out of mind for sure.

  10. Evil never sleeps! I see no future for our country as long as we allow these horrors to go on. A liberal on another website got upset because I post stories like the ones in this article. If only they could be so offended by the horrific deed of abortion itself.

  11. This lady deserves to die right there next to the baby and feel every bit of pain that is humanly possible to inflict on the human body what absolute POS you all are who do this to little babies.

  12. I never consider what they do as “family planning” because in reality it is anything but that. It is really planned infanticide/murder. Every child deserves a chance at life. I did say EVERY child; regardless of how healthy they are or are not. Liberals are the most hypocritical people on the face of this earth. The thing that I hate the most about them is when they start calling our military people “baby killers”; which you KNOW IS NOT TRUE. Meanwhile they don’t even bat an eyelash at the though of a beautiful, innocent, helpless child being torn limb from limb all in the name of “convenience” or “a womans choice”. It is not a choice it is a child. Liberals think that babies feel no pain while they are being aborted? They clearly are demented. Meanwhile there are live ultrasounds of a baby being aborted. You can clearly see in the video that the baby is kicking and moving around; in obvious agony and trying to stop the pain. The women who want to abort their babies should be made to think about “what if my mom aborted me”?? I love what Ronald Reagan had to say about the subject, “I’ve noticed that everyone who is for abortion has already been born”. -Ronald Reagan This is for RAT: I love rats and used to have a pet rat. Her name was Daisy. Keep up the great work. Rats rock <3

  13. When I saw “post-birth abortion” in the title under the recent posts heading the image my mind constructed was MURDER. I don’t know how to interpret “post-birth abortion” any other way.

  14. I’m amazed, I must say. Seldom do I encounter a blog that’s equally educative and engaging,
    and let me tell you, you have hit the nail on the head.
    The problem is an issue that too few people are speaking intelligently about.
    I am very happy that I came across this during my search
    for something regarding this.
