Planned Parenthood Rep Gives Chilling Testimony on “Post-Birth” Abortion

Does Planned Parenthood condone the killing of babies born alive during a “botched” abortion procedure?

Is it possible that abortion giant Planned Parenthood condones the killing of babies outside the womb in what is sometimes termed “post-birth” abortion? To some observers, Alisa LaPolt Snow, a lobbyist with the Florida Alliance of Planned Parenthood Affiliates, appeared to give that impression when she testified March 28 in connection with a Florida bill that would require abortionists to give medical care to babies born alive during a “botched” abortion procedure. (Video available at link below.)

When given her chance to offer Planned Parenthood's position on the common-sense and compassionate measure, Snow told Florida lawmakers in a prepared statement that while “Planned Parenthood condemns any physician who does not follow the law or endangers a woman's or a child's health … we don't believe that politicians should be the ones who decide what constitutes the best, medically appropriate treatment in any given situation.”

Some legislators were shocked at what appeared to be an admission that Planned Parenthood is okay with allowing babies born alive during an abortion to be deprived of life-saving medical care. Fox News reported that one of the lawmakers tried to pin Snow down on the abortion giant's position regarding a baby born alive while an abortionist was attempting to end his or her life. “We believe that any decision that's made should be left up to the woman, her family, and the physician,” Snow reiterated from her talking points — making it appear that Planned Parenthood's position is that an abortionist hasn't completed his mission until a baby dies, inside or outside the womb.

Another legislator pressed Snow on the issue, asking her to explain Planned Parenthood's policy when such a scenario occurs, to which the abortion lobbyist replied, “I do not have that information.” Another legislator asked her if a baby born under such traumatic circumstances wouldn't automatically join his mother as a patient under the care of the erstwhile abortion doctor. “That's a very good question,” Snow blankly demurred. “I really don't know how to answer that.”
