At a committee hearing in the Florida legislature on a proposed “Born Alive Bill,” Planned Parenthood’s Alisa Lepolt Snow stunningly asserted that the fate of a child who survives a botched abortion should be left to the discretion of the mother and her doctor. In other words, if the mother so chooses, the baby may be denied medical treatment and left to die.

I discussed this outrageous position on my radio show this week. Two callers to my program sided with Planned Parenthood. One said that it is impossible to judge others, while the other would not answer the basic question - Do You Save the Baby on the Table? Both showed the extent of the liberal ideal of rejecting "right and wrong," and finding no fault with what others decide, because it's unfair to judge anything or anyone.

Listen to the audio here.

The first caller, John, wanted to defend Planned Parenthood. When I said that it is not necessary for someone to defend evil, or something that is obviously wrong, John stated:

...none of us have the power; none of have the intellect, none of us have the whatever you want to call it, to call anything or anyone truly evil.

Exactly how many ways can this be false? Answer - all of them. The recognition of the difference between good and evil is not an abstract concept. Very often, it plays itself out clearly for the world to see. If leaving a baby to die on a table is not evil, then what is (or has ever been) evil?

When I stated, "...when the baby is born, and it’s on the table and you leave it to die, that's murder." He responded with, "by whose definition?" John then continued, "Here's the thing where conservatives mess up. They want the government to reach into people’s lives in certain things..."

Another caller, Jay, also stated that, "keeping the government out of your bedroom is probably important." I asked, "Do you think letting the baby die on the table is keeping government out of your bedroom?" His answer? "I'm not going to get in to that."

Saving the life of a baby has nothing to do with government. Saving the life of a baby, a child, an adult, is something the human being does instinctively. However, as both callers have shown, this instinctive behavior has been eliminated from the progressive mind; they have "Progressed" to the point where saving a child's life is now not automatic, but rather a conversation that needs lengthy discussion...as the child dies.
