As Guy wrote about extensively yesterday and as Dan wrote about over the weekend, the pro-life activist group LiveAction recently released two undercover videos exposing the late term abortion industry in America. In Brooklyn, an abortion clinic worker said late-term abortions are done "all of of the time," while repeatedly referring to a baby as "it." In Washington D.C., abortionist Cesare Santangelo was caught on video saying a baby who survives an abortion would be left to die, which is illegal under the Born Alive Infant Protection Act, and compared the child to terminal cancer.
Last night on the O'Reilly Factor, LiveAction President Lila Rose discussed their investigation and pointed out that the abortion debate has been sanitized.
Host Bill O'Reilly argues that Planned Parenthood and NARAL would argue these are extreme cases that don't represent their views on abortion, but in fact, what Santangelo said does represent the position of Planned Parenthood on the issue of babies born alive after surviving an abortion. Just a month ago in Florida, Planned Parenthood representative Alisa LaPolt Snow argued what happens to a baby who surivives an abortion struggling on a table is up to the "parents and the physician."
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.
As a reminder, Planned Parenthood receives hundreds of thousands of dollars each year in taxpayer funds.
