A Planned Parenthood affiliate recently refused to acknowledge that a child born alive as a result of a botched abortion was now a patient in need of life saving medical care. She said the decision was between the woman and the abortion provider. In other words, she is admitting that living, breathing babies struggling for life don’t deserve the medical care and attention anyone else does. A recent article recounts part of the exchange between lawmakers and Planned Parenthood representative Alisa LaPolt Snow: [Read more...]
