Sasse, Stanek urge passage of Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act


Sasse, Stanek urge passage of Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act
Live Action News

Despite the fact that Americans on both sides of the abortion debate were horrified to learn about Gosnellâs cruelty, federal law does not adequately protect a born child who survives an abortion. Some say these protections are unnecessary, but we know grim reality says otherwise.We know abortionist Kermit Gosnell routinely murdered abortion survivors, and there may be others out there like him. We know abortion survivors have been put on shelves to die without medical assessments or assistance in hospitalsâ soiled utility rooms.In Texas, abortionist Douglas Karpen committed Gosnell-like atrocities. But with nurses complaining of ‘meat market’ conditions even at Planned Parenthood, it’s extremely likely that Karpen and Gosnell are not alone.Planned Parenthood, the nation’s largest abortion chain, has shown that they are just as extreme as Karpen and Gosnell by lobbying against a bill to protect babies born alive in Florida:While testifying before a Congressional panel last September, Cecile Richards, the president and CEO of Planned Parenthood, denied that babies have ever been born alive at her business.
