Planned Parenthood

Line Items: Jesus Wept

The fifth video of The Center for Medical Progress illustrates just how eager Planned Parenthood Worse Than Murder, Inc. is to profit from the corpses of some of their victims.

A Planned Parenthood executive admits in an undercover video that her doctors alter abortion procedures and she manipulates prices to accommodate specific fetal tissue harvesting requests — including delivering fully intact fetuses — though doing so may violate federal law.

In the nearly 16-minute, edited video, the fifth released by Center for Medical Progress, a woman identified as Melissa Farrell, director of research for Planned Parenthood Gulf Coast, discusses pricing for specimens — ranging from intact fetuses to tissue and organs — for outside tissue procurement companies.

“Yeah, and so if we alter our process, and we are able to obtain intact fetal cadavers, then we can make it part of the budget, that any dissections are this, and splitting the specimens into different shipments is this,” Farrell said. “I mean it’s all just a matter of line items.” Continue reading

Narcissism and Love

PlannedParenthood-BodyPartsForSale-LionKilled-Outrage-Attrib-FB-MRC-NewsBusters-238x178

 

Andrew Klavan’s beloved dog is dying and he springboards that sad fact for a powerful meditation on a media that mourns a dead lion while attempting to conceal the deeds of Planned Parenthood Worse Than Murder, Inc., that traffics in the body parts of some of its victims:

Narcissism should not be confused with self love, no matter what the dictionary tells you. Narcissism grows out of a sense that the self is fragile, that it will shatter in the presence of hostility or even bland contradiction. True love of self, used wisely, is a virtue. True love of self is the school of our affections. The Gospels tell us to love our neighbors as we love ourselves because it’s in true self love that we first learn forbearance, tolerance and kindness to someone very dear to us. With true love of self as a guide, our love for our pets can be a perfect training ground for a love of others.

In this, the love of animals is very like another kind of love: the love of a mother for her baby. That love, too, has a measure of narcissism in it. That love too attaches itself at first to a creature with no inner consciousness of its own.

 But a good mother knows that people don’t just live in space, they live in time as well. (This is the great point Peter Singer misses, by the way.) You are not just who you are, but also who you’ve been and who you will be. Likewise, a fetus is not just the creature it is, it is also the child it will become, and likewise the child is the adult it will grow into. A mother who lets the love for her baby grow as the baby grows, who learns to release her child into its own consciousness and yet loves it still even on into adulthood — she is the nearest exemplar to the gospel commandment we have this side of heaven. That’s why — no matter how many female soccer stars and talk show hosts and corrupt senators the media hold up for our veneration — the Good Mother remains our chief human image of love, sacrifice and virtue.

Narcissism or the golden rule; Cecil the lion or America’s murdered babies; to dance round the golden calf of our own egos or to worship in the temple of true love. In the media these last couple of weeks, we’ve seen what choice the powers-that-be would have us make. Let’s make another. Continue reading

Internet Hitler Weeps for Planned Parenthood

 

Steve Hayward at Powerline gives us the dismay of Internet Hitler at the chaos caused to Planned Parenthood Worse Than Murder, Inc. by the undercover videos of The Center for Medical Progress.  Hitler and his colleagues are increasingly, in hindsight, merely unsuccessful vendors of the product of mass murder of one group of people to produce better living for another group.  Worse Than Murder, Inc. has demonstrated how the product can be marketed successfully:

1.  Use euphemisms like products of conception and reproductive rights to hide the reality of the mass slaying of innocents.

2.  Make sure that your chosen victims are voiceless and have zip political influence.

3.  Employ religious bigotry against those who complain of the mass murders.

4.  Define your victims as non-human, so their millions of deaths somehow do not count.

5.  Get the news and entertainment industries on your side, so that your victims will be forgotten as well as murdered, while your organization will be lauded and all criticism of it spiked by friendly “reporters”. Continue reading

An Apology

(I originally wrote this about five years ago when the blog readership was much smaller.  I reran it a early last year.  Now that Planned Parenthood is back in the news,  I thought that current readers might wish to know why I refer to Planned Parenthood as Worse Than Murder, Inc.)

Lately, in several posts, I have been in the habit of referring to Planned Parenthood as Murder, Inc.  I apologize for doing so.  It was unfair of me to draw this type of comparison.

 

In the late twenties of the last century, gangsters Charles “Lucky” Luciano and Meyer Lansky set up the National Crime Syndicate.  Organized crime needed a mechanism to keep anarchy from breaking out within its ranks between various gangs and factions.  Operating out of a 24 hour candy store in the Brownsville neighborhood of Brooklyn, Murder, Inc. ( the name was a newspaper invention) provided this mechanism.  Louis “The Judge” “Lepke” Buchalter and Albert “The Mad Hatter” Anastasia were the leaders of Murder, Inc.

The Syndicate, by majority vote, would order the slaying of an unruly gangster and Murder, Inc would carry it out.  The hitmen of Murder, Inc. operated under strict guidlines.  No innocent bystanders were to be killed.  No hits could be ordered against judges, police or prosecuting attorneys for fear of reprisals from law enforcement.

Over the years Murder, Inc. murdered some 800 fellow gangsters.  In 1940 the downfall of the murder enterprise began when Murder, Inc. killer Abe ‘Kid Twist’ Reles, turned informant in order to save himself from the electric chair.  Louis “The Judge” “Lepke” Buchalter died in the chair in Sing Sing in 1944, after the US Supreme Court rejected his appeal which raised, among other issues, the contention of Buchalter that lurid press coverage had tainted the jury.  Other Murder, Inc. members swiftly followed “The Judge” down the last mile.  Albert “The Madhatter” Anastasia would have followed in their footsteps but for the tragic “accidental” death of Abe ‘Kid Twist’ Reles when he fell from room 623 of the Half Moon Hotel on Coney Island.  In the gang world he was ever after known as “The Canary that sung but couldn’t fly.”  However, with the attention of law enforcement focused upon it, Murder, Inc. could no longer function and it ceased to exist except as a gangland legend.

Based upon this grim record I hope you can see why it is necessary for me to apologize—to Murder, Inc.  Continue reading

Limbaugh on Planned Parenthood

 

 

 

 

 

Rush Limbaugh tends to take a lot of grief from Catholic commenters.  Some of it is deserved, but much of it is not.  When it comes to abortion, he has been one of the major media voices opposing it relentlessly for over a quarter of a century.  When he dies he will have his sins to answer for as we all will.  He will also have tens of millions, who never got to speak in this Vale of Tears, eloquently pleading his case before the Most High.  Here is Limbaugh on the current Planned Parenthood Worse Than Murder, Inc. atrocity:

Well, now we know why the advocates for the right to choose have been so advocating.  Always try to follow the money.  Here are these leftists that want everybody to believe that they don’t care about money, that everything they do is charitable because they’re nice people and they are compassionate and they’re understanding and they’re all for protecting the little people who get trampled on by the big people, and look who is doing the trampling. 

The greatest example of the essence of innocence that I can conjure, a baby in the womb.  I mean, it hasn’t done anything to anybody.  It represents and is new life.  It is the essence of innocence.  It cannot speak for itself.  It cannot protect itself.  It cannot defend itself.  While being the essence of innocence, it is the most vulnerable it will ever be.  And here come the people promising and telling and guaranteeing that they are protecting the rights of the little people, that they protecting the vulnerable, they’re making sure that the little guy, the vulnerable, the powerful, don’t get trampled on by who?  The rich, the powerful.  Usually this means Republicans. 

And yet in another case study of reality, exposing fraud, who actually is trampling over the defenseless, the innocent, the vulnerable?  The very damn people who claim to be their protectors, the protectors of liberty, individual rights, the right to choose, what have you.  The same people who want these body parts for stem cells that have yet to prove worthy of research, worthwhile, any of that.  It is just sick and it is completely and totally unremarked upon in the Drive-By Media. 

Carly Fiorina this morning on her Facebook released a new video responding to this second and latest Planned Parenthood secretly recorded video.

**************************************************

Somebody just asked me, “Rush, how can these people do this?  How can they not know what they’re doing to a baby?”  Ladies and gentlemen, I wish I could answer that for you.  I mean, these are the people that are extracting what they hope are workable, usable body parts. They’re taking great, great care not to crunch, not to crush, so what they extract are actual what they hope usable baby body organs they can sell. 

Now, how a person or the people doing this can then turn around and say that what they’re dealing with is an “unviable tissue mass,” I can only the guess.  I think you have to have the concept of evil. You have to understand it, and you have to acknowledge that it exists.  It’s a real thing.  It’s the same people that say “unviable tissue mass” or it’s actually an illness, pregnancy leads to an illness and so forth.

Every crazy justification they’ve offered for abortion, the very same people doing that are now extracting usable body parts and selling them for profit.  I mean, what are they telling themselves about what they’re doing?  They’re probably lying to themselves about medical research and saving lives.  They probably come up with “one life to save millions.”  It’s probably not hard to imagine the contortions they undergo to justify this. But the clearly think they’re doing a service.

They clearly believe they are serving mankind and medical research.

But to anybody with common decency, it’s just sick.  And it’s something that I dare say the vast majority of people in this country would never, ever dream would happen here.  We went to war to stop people like this before! Continue reading

Veil of Lies

 

My favorite liberal, Kirsten Powers, has a first rate column on the Planned Parenthood Worse Than Murder, Inc. videos:

 

Planned Parenthood head Cecile Richards apologized last week for the uncompassionate tone her senior director of medical research, Deborah Nucatola, used to explain the process by which she harvests aborted body parts to be provided for medical research.

Nucatola had been caught on an undercover video talking to anti-abortion activists posing as representatives of a biological tissue procurement company. The abortion doctor said, “I’d say a lot of people want liver,” and “a lot of people want intact hearts these days.” Explaining how she could perform later-term abortions to aid the harvesting of such intact organs, she said, “We’ve been very good at getting heart, lung, liver, because we know that, so I’m not gonna crush that part, I’m gonna basically crush below, I’m gonna crush above, and I’m gonna see if I can get it all intact.”

A second undercover video released Tuesday shows another Planned Parenthood official talking about using a “less crunchy” way to perform abortions while preserving salable fetal tissue.

This is stomach-turning stuff. But the problem here is not one of tone. It’s the crushing. It’s the organ harvesting of  fetuses that abortion-rights activists want us to believe have no more moral value than a fingernail. It’s the lie that these are not human beings worthy of protection. There is no nice way to talk about this. As my friend and former Obama White House staffer Michael Wear tweeted, “It should bother us as a society that we have use for aborted human organs, but not the baby that provides them.”

Richards worked to discredit the video by complaining it was “heavily edited.” But the nearly three-hour unedited video — a nauseating journey through the inner workings of the abortion industry — was posted at the same time as the edited video. Richards intoned menacingly that the video was “secretly recorded.” So what? When Mitt Romney was caught by “secret video” making his 47% remarks, the means of attaining the information was not the focus of the story. Continue reading

Hitler Wants His Royalties

 

A second video is out by those redoubtable video warriors at The Center for Medical Progress showing a Planned Parenthood Worse Than Murder, Inc. ghoul demonstrating yet again that you can put a price on human life and human body parts.

Father Z gives us the details:

Never has the label “Big Business Abortion” been more appropriate for Planned Parenthood. HERE

Another video is out, showing a PP exec negotiating the price of body parts of babies.

Planned Parenthood receives million of YOUR tax dollars.

A new undercover video shows a top Planned Parenthood official discussing “less crunchy” techniques to get “whole specimens” and haggling over the price of fetus tissue sales because she wants “a Lamborghini.”

The video released Tuesday morning, the second put out by the Center for Medical Progress, features a woman identified as Dr. Mary Gatter, who was president of the Planned Parenthood Medical Directors’ Council until 2014 and now works in a leadership and advisory capacity at the local and national level of the organization. Over drinks, Gatter and the undercover activists discuss “specimen” prices, eventually settling at $100 for “intact tissue.”

Men as Meat

Julius:  The new made Adam!  And this is how you see man?  Noble, beautiful, unafraid?

Michelangelo:  How else should I see him?

Julius:  As he is! Corrupt and evil! His hands dripping with blood, destined for damnation! Your painting is beautiful but false.

Michelangelo:  I cannot change my conception.

Julius:  You’ve taught me not to waste my time trying to change your conceptions.  How did you arrive at this?

Michelangelo:  I thought …  my idea for the panel was that man’s evil he learned from himself, not from God.

Julius:  (quietly) yes…

Michelangelo:  I wanted to paint man, as He was first created.  Innocent, still free of sin, grateful for the gift of life.

Screenplay, The Agony and the Ecstasy

Kevin Williamson at National Review Online nails it in reference to the revelation that Planned Parenthood Worse Than Murder, Inc, is trafficking in some of the corpses of their murder victims:

Human beings are not lumps of labor. They are not capital, consumer goods, taxpayers, commodities — or meat. The philosophy of Planned Parenthood (and Eros is a jealous god) is the philosophy of men-as-meat, and that philosophy is not long compatible with liberty and human dignity. When Erich Fromm wrote his famous book on the dream of religion without deity, he titled it “You Shall Be as Gods.” The truth is that without an understanding of the uniqueness of human beings and the consequent value of every human life, you will not be as gods — you will be as meat. And meat gets butchered, packaged, and sold. It gets stuffed in the freezer. Continue reading

Ghouls for Profit

 

Christopher Johnson, a non-Catholic who has taken up the cudgels so frequently for the Church that I have named him Defender of the Faith, in a post entitled appropriately EINSATZGRUPPEN, looks at the revelation that Planned Parenthood is making money off the corpses of some of the babies they murder:

Initially, I wasn’t particularly shocked by this story:

An undercover video shot last summer by a new pro-life organization called Center for Medical Progress purports to show the chief medical officer of Planned Parenthood of America talking on camera about how to abort a child intact so the child’s body parts can be transferred for medical and scientific research.

The video was shot by a team led by David Daleiden of the Center for Medical Progress posing as representatives of a start up biotech firm in the business of buying fetal body parts for medical and scientific research. Daleiden told Breitbart News, “It as remarkably easy to make contact with Planned Parenthood” to discuss procurement of fetal tissue.

I mean, it’s Murder, Inc., it’s what they do.  But the truly scary thing about this story is that the more you think about it and the deeper you dig, the more horrifying this all eventually becomes.  Satan, and I’m not being at all figurative here, is in the details.  Like these.

The video purports to show, between bites of lunch and sips of wine, Dr. Deborah Nucatola saying, “A lot of people want intact hearts these days, because they are looking for specific nodes.”

She adds: “Yesterday was the first time she said people wanted lungs. And then, like I said, always as many intact livers as possible. People just want…some people want lower extremities, too. I mean that’s easy. I don’t know what they’re doing with it, I guess they want muscle.”

Or these.

[Nucatola] talks about pricing. “You know, I would throw a number out, and I would say it’s probably anywhere from $30 to $100 [per specimen] depending on the facility and what’s involved.”

In the video, Nucatola goes into great detail about ordering specific body parts and how the abortionist goes about ensuring those parts are not damaged in the abortion. She says the abortionist uses “ultrasound guidance, so they’ll know where they’re putting their forceps.”

And then she talks about the baby’s head. “The kind of rate-limiting step is procedure is calvarium.

Know what a calvarium is?  There should be one on top of your neck.

Calvarium — the head — is basically the biggest part. Most of the other stuff can come out intact.”

Nucatola says the doctor has to be “just kind of cognizant of where you put your graspers, you try to intentionally go above and below the thorax, so that, you know, we’ve been very good at getting heart, lung, liver, because we know that, so I’m not gonna crush that part, I’m going to basically crush below, and I’m gonna crush above, and I’m gonna see if I can get it all intact.”

Nucatola explains how the position of the baby can be changed so that she can be extracted up to the head and then collapse the head so that all the other body parts can be extracted without damage.

Think about that for a second.  The “chief medical officer” of Murder, Inc. doesn’t want it’s accredited teppanyaki chefs to go in there and just start indiscriminately slicing and dicing.  MI has a bottom line to think about.

They’re harvesting them.  The bastards are harvesting them.

But they’re “harvesting them” for medical research.  They’re trying to save lives.

So?

Oh, come on now, Johnson.  You’ve just been diagnosed with some kind of terminal illness; the doctors tell you that you have 3 to 5 years left.  Optimistically.

But there’s this treatment deriving from the research on or the direct use of fetal tissue that could extend your life be decades or even cure you.  Are you seriously claiming that you would refuse such treatment if you knew where it came from?

Yeah, pretty much.  Prolonging my existence is not a high, personal priority right now.  And if it necessitates killing other human beings, it’s far too high a price to pay anyway.

Will this story have legs?  The Washington Post has picked it up so we’ll see.

Actor James Woods Tweets on Planned Parenthood

 

Belying the usual Hollywood love for Planned Parenthood, actor James Wood is on fire regarding the Nazi Planned Parenthood sale of the corpses of their victims:

 

  1. James Woods@RealJamesWoods 4h4 hours ago
  2. Cruel irony: SCOTUS used “privacy” as basis for legalized abortion. Now when PP sells fetal body parts, it sells your DNA with it. Oops…
     

 

 

Driving the Nails in a Bit Further

That Worse Than Murder, Inc., a\k\a Planned Parenthood, has “Christian” clergy who support it, would shock me more if I were not aware that almost all the despicable causes that have infested the world since the Crucifixion have been able to find some clergy claiming the name Christian to support them.  Christopher Johnson, a non-Catholic who has taken up the cudgels so frequently for the Church that I have named him Defender of the Faith, does one of his patented fisks of the latest mental droppings from one of the Christian clergy Quislings specializing in defending the indefensible:

 

 

Murder Inc.’s Auschwitz Chaplaincy Free Kermit Gosnell Committee Clergy Advocacy Board (FYI, Susan Russell is the Auschwitz Chaplaincy Free Kermit Gosnell Committee CAB’s current Vice-Chair which should tell you everything you need to know) recently issued a “pastoral letter” on abortion under Murder Inc.’s logo.  Believe it or not, these pseudo-spiritual whores “religious leaders” are perfectly fine with you offing your kid for pretty much any reason:

The decision to have an abortion is personal. Though your reasons may be complicated and private, you’re not alone. As religious leaders from a number of religious traditions, we’re here to support you in your decision.

Of course you are.  As far as we’re concerned, fileting the kid is morally the same thing as getting liposuction, your appendix removed or a root canal.

Many people wrongly assume that all religious leaders disapprove of abortion. The truth is that abortion is not even mentioned in the Scriptures — Jewish or Christian

Neither are racism, sexism, breaking the speed limit, jaywalking, homosexuality “as we currently understand it” (if you believe the religious left), or genocide.  What’s your point, Auschwitz Chaplaincy Free Kermit Gosnell Committee Clergy Advocacy Board?

and there are clergy and people of faith

Faith in their father the…oh, you know the drill.

from all denominations who support women making this complex decision. The beliefs of each person are deserving of respect,

Unless you believe that abortion is evil in which case, go to hell.

and each person deserves care and compassion,

Except Republicans and fundies.

No one should be allowed to force their faith teachings on anyone else.

I think someone once said that Ted Kennedy’s religious beliefs were such a private matter that he wouldn’t even impose them on himself.

No one knows the circumstances of your life as well as you know them; no one knows what’s in your heart better than you. Allow yourself to be at peace with your decision.

Sin?  What does that word even mean?

God loves you and is with you no matter what you decide. You can find strength, understanding, and comfort in that love.

A more accurate English translation of Genesis 3:1-3 cannot possibly be written. Continue reading

Blood Money

 

Ed Morrissey at Hot Air gives us the report of Marianne Anderson who worked at a Planned Parenthood Worse Than Murder, Inc. clinic in Indianapolis, and who left under the inspiration of former Planned Parenthood Worse Than Murder, Inc., clinic director Abby Johnson who is now a pro-life crusader.  Unsurprisingly she quickly learned that all the killing was to make a buck.

 

 

Q. What was it like working there?

A. “It was a money-grubbing, evil, very sad, sad place to work.

“We would get yelled at if we didn’t answer the phone by the third ring. They would tell us we’d be fired [if we didn’t] because they needed the money.

“They would remind us in our weekly staff meeting that we need to tell everyone [who called to schedule an appointment] to avoid ‘those people’ [the sidewalk counselors] because we need the money. We were to tell them, ‘Don’t make eye contact with them, and don’t stop in the driveway. If you make eye contact with them or if you stop and roll down your window, they’re going to try their darnedest to talk you out of it.’

“You have to have so many [abortions] a month to stay open. In our meetings they’d tell us, ‘If abortions are down, you could get sent home early and not get as many hours.’

“They would allow girls to have ultrasounds that were obviously way too far along [the legal limit for having an abortion in Indiana is 13 weeks and six days]. They said, ‘If they want to be seen, you just put them through, no problem,’ just taking advantage to make money.

“I was always getting in trouble for talking too long to the girls, asking if they were sure they wanted to do this.

“It was absolutely miserable going in there.” … Continue reading

IRS Scandal: Enforcer for Planned Parenthood

Al Capone IRS

We’ll  try to cooperate fully with the IRS, because, as citizens, we feel a strong  patriotic duty not to go to jail.
Dave Barry

Ronald Reagan used to say that in his neighborhood the IRS was regarded as a terrorist organization.  I think a more apt current description of it is as an enforcer for various political entities including Worse Than Murder, Inc:

Similarly, the nonprofit Thomas More Society is now alleging that the IRS withheld approval for tax-exempt status from two pro-life organizations because of their demonstrations against abortion provider Planned Parenthood.

In one case, the IRS withheld approval of an application for tax exempt status for Coalition for Life of Iowa. In a phone call to Coalition for Life of Iowa leaders on June 6, 2009, the IRS agent “Ms. Richards” told the group to send a letter to the IRS with the entire board’s signatures stating that, under perjury of the law, they do not picket/protest or organize groups to picket or protest outside of Planned Parenthood. Once the IRS received this letter, their application would be approved…

In another similar case, the IRS withheld approval of an application for charitable tax-exempt recognition of Christian Voices for Life, questioning the group’s involvement with “40 Days for Life” and “Life Chain” events. The Fort Bend County, Texas, organization was subjected to repeated and lengthy unconstitutional requests for information about the viewpoint and content of its educational communications, volunteer prayer vigils, and other protected activities.

Thomas More Society special counsel Sally Wagenmaker calls the IRS authority in these cases is “disturbing.” Continue reading

Obama, Abortion, the 1950s and Race

The most pro-abortion president in our history, Barack Obama, once again displayed his fealty today to Worse Than Murder, Inc, a\k\a Planned Parenthood:

WASHINGTON     (AP) — President Barack Obama vowed Friday to join Planned Parenthood in fighting against what he said were efforts across the country to turn women’s health back to the 1950s.

Obama’s comments were the first by a sitting president before the abortion-rights group. He lauded its nearly 100 years of service to women, providing cancer screenings, contraceptives and other health services.

“When politicians try to turn Planned Parenthood into a punching bag, they’re not just talking about you,” he said. “They’re talking about the millions of women who you serve.”

Obama asserted that “an assault on women’s rights” is underway across the country, with bills being introduced in nearly every state legislature to limit or ban abortion or restrict access to birth control.

“The fact is, after decades of progress, there’s still those who want to turn back the clock to policies more suited to the 1950s than the 21st Century,” Obama said. “And they’ve been involved in an orchestrated and historic effort to roll back basic rights when it comes to women’s health.”

Leftists like the President usually accuse opponents of seeking to roll back the clock, even as they seek desperately, and futilely, to keep the clock frozen in a present they find desirable.  The video at the beginning of this post is from the National Black Pro-life Coalition, a group dedicated to revealing that no group in our society has been ravaged more by abortion than blacks.  Kermit Gosnell’s butcher shop is merely a particularly ugly manifestation of something that every one in the abortion industry knows and almost never speaks of:  blacks are the number one targeted group for abortions in this country.  In a country where blacks make up around 12% of the population, 35% of all abortions are performed on blacks. Worse Than Murder, Inc, a/k/a Planned Parenthood locates 79% of its abortion clinics in minority areas.  Abortion, the Klan’s dream come true.

Dead Baby Uber Alles

The above video of a Worse Than Murder, Inc, a\k\a Planned Parenthood rep blithely indicating that a baby surviving an abortion should not receive medical care if  the mother and the abortionist do not wish the child to receive medical care has received considerable play.

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.” Continue reading
