Horrifying: Fla. Planned Parenthood lobbyist argues case for infanticide

Moral bankruptcy personified:

Pretty tough, evidently. Watch as Alisa LaPolt Snow, who represents the Florida Alliance of Planned Parenthood Affiliates, performs moral and intellectual acrobatic feats in order to make the case for “post-birth abortion” (via The Weekly Standard):


Representative: What objection could you possibly have to obligate a doctor to transfer a child born alive to a hospital, where it seems to me they would be most likely to be able to survive?

Snow: What about those situations where it’s in a rural healthcare setting, the hospital is 45 minutes, and hour away, that’s the closest trauma center or emergency room? You know there’s just some logistical issues involved that we have some concerns about.

A child is not a logistical issue; a child is a human being. It’s horrific enough that Planned Parenthood insists that a developing fetus isn’t a person. For Snow — who speaks on Planned Parenthood’s behalf — to suggest that a newborn who manages to survive an attempt on its life is expendable “in a rural healthcare setting,” or in any setting, is to condone infanticide. And it’s utterly indefensible.

If anything can be gleaned from this sickening display, it’s this:

Morally reprehensible.

  • DaTechGuy on DaRadio

    If anyone is shocked at this they just aren’t paying attention.

  • RblDiver

    How long until a pregnant woman is murdered (or heck, just injured to point of miscarriage), and the perp claims “It was just an abortion, I shouldn’t be charged with anything!”

    • Mandy in SC

      I’ve wondered how the government can take a person to trial for a double murder if the victim is a woman and her fetus… but simply killing the fetus is just a “medical procedure.”

      • SpinMeNot

        Outstanding observation … *hat-tip*

      • wwbdinct

        You only have to look at Scott Peterson who was convicted of the murder of Laci and his unborn child. Why the hypocrisy?

      • truebeliever101

        They say it all depends on whether or not the “mother” wanted the baby. So, the value of a baby’s life is dependent ONLY on whether or not it is wanted by the birth mother. SICK.

        • lainer51

          what’s really sick is some moron gave you an arrow down….

      • TocksNedlog

        Because they can always find some relative to claim, whether it’s true or not, that she intended to have the child.
        Of course, even if the opposite were true, the murderer still robbed her of her constitutional right to choose to kill the child herself.

        [Its a sick little world we live in, isn’t it?]

    • Kim

      Well, how and why is abortion legal when one can be charged with double homicide for killing a pregnant woman?

      Only difference is whether or not someone wanted the unborn baby, apparently.

      • truebeliever101

        Yes, that is exactly what they say the difference is.

    • disqus_e2F2oUH6C7

      A Dr. in Philly is on trial for just that & killing babies. Dr. Gonell.

      That’s been going on forever. And still does. But pro-choice and stuff. So they must have chosen to die from an abortion. Right along with the baby they were killing.

      If only it were something we had to wait for. Women are being killed for refusing abortions already. Frequently. :(

  • waltermitty2012

    If you ever wanted to know what silence is like, just wait for the Democrats to respond. This is exactly what Dr. Kermit Gosnell is accused of doing in Philadelphia. Where’s the moral outrage from the Democrats?

    • stellatruman

      Have yet to read this being reported on national MSM outlets. When the trial began, it was on local affiliates, but haven’t heard a peep in the last week…again, trying to make abortion out to be a reproductive choice and not baby killing

    • SpinMeNot

      They would have to actually have a belief system that wasn’t fluid to enable them to make a moral judgement …

    • plumberskid

      There is no moral outrage from the left, because they don’t have a problem with killing babies. If they did, Roe v Wade would never have passed.

      • Judy B

        Roe vs Wade didn’t pass anything, it was activist judges dictating from the bench. Over 80% of the gen pop was opposed to it at the time.

          • trixiewoobeans

            Perhaps what my family was (they’re slowly changing over to other Parties), what they called a “Truman Democrat”, fairly conservative, enough so that they realize THAT portion of the Democratic Party is gone, gone, gone.

          • http://www.facebook.com/138900508 Patrick Dennehy

            Truman supported labor unions, higher taxation, and pushed for the ‘fair deal’, which has proved to be a disaster IMO. That said, he fought in WWI, opposed communism, was strong on foreign relations and national security.

            A far cry from the liberals of today. Democrats, starting in the 60’s, have morphed into something that’s un-american. It has gone from ‘ask not what your country can do for you — ‘ask what you can do for your country.’ to ‘fair’ redistribution, sexual impropriety, and secularism.

            I think a lot of ‘old school’ democrats, are, like you said – conservative enough to realize, their party has gone bananas. I have seen you around, you are no liberal (relatively speaking) :)

          • Judy B

            Serious question, how can one be a conservative & a Democrat?

          • disqus_e2F2oUH6C7

            When I first registered to vote the Dems were not like they are now. My father was a Dem & I took after him. But the party has changed. Just have to go & change it. Don’t really think parties mean much. Now it’s Conservative v Progressive.

          • disqus_e2F2oUH6C7

            I also have a mind of my own.

    • disqus_e2F2oUH6C7

      Thr Dem Progressives have no morals.

    • trixiewoobeans

      Key word…moral. There’s no outrage if you haven’t got any.

      I’ve actually seen pro-choice people argue that it is immoral to perform abortions on pregnant dogs and cats.

    Too bad this Alisa Le~Dolt Snow was not aborted….I lost count of the # of baby ducks I saved to live after their momma abandoned them because they were a day or two late hatching like the rest… into the house, into the incubator and VOILA!

      I’m sure Snow is fine with saving ducks and whales and spotted owls.

    That woman and Planned Parenthood are despicable. “Parenthood” shouldn’t even be part ot Planned Parenthood’s name.

      • http://www.facebook.com/richard.jefferies.96 Richard Jefferies

        These abortion racketeers descended from Margaret Sanger’s eugenics outreach which targeted “Americans of African origin”. So she would probably look at African genocide a good start.

        • SpinMeNot

          Damn it, another fine point … yes you are correct. Maybe then take her to a Tibetan Monastery, or a Franciscan Abbey so that she can see what true peace looks like? I’m grasping at straws here. It seems apparent that simple common sense is not effective on her.

          Maybe some people are simply not worth anything until they donate their organs … I really don’t know anymore.

          EDIT: here change to her.

          • AMERICAN Kafir™(KAdams)

            I think she’s dead… after all, Hitler admired her work. She’s also a hero of Hillary Clinton’s. There’s a speech she gave, some time ago, honoring Margaret Sanger.

            Edit* Yes, she died on Sept. 6, 1966. 9-6-66. Fitting.

        • trixiewoobeans

          What Sanger was pushing for was, quite simply, the legalized “lynching” of black babies via abortion.

      • http://twitter.com/BrianPHovland Brian H (wackobird)

        Whoa whoa whoa there………. you need to remove the word unbelievable from your vocabulary. It is ALL believable. For years we have listened to the moral bankruptcy coming from the left. They now are living their wildest and most evil fantasies. It will get much worse.

          Well, I can’t argue with that … can I be astonished, yet not surprised?

      • Lady 12

        As we all know, there is no difference between an unborn baby and a born baby. If they’re okay with killing one, why wouldn’t they be okay with killing the other?

        • Michael Anderson (WB)

          Exactly. My dad would jokingly say the age limit should be extended to 18 when I gave him just cause. The absurd is becoming reality.

    • V the K

      A friend of mine had to put down his dog yesterday because it was getting too aggressive toward people; and his co-workers gave him grief about it all day. What have we come to when people get more upset over putting down an aggressive dog than killing a baby?

      • Cake

        It is messed up. If someone’s dog mauls a child, people rally and petition to have that dog sent to a dog sanctuary where it can live out its life. They’ll donate money to save a dangerous dog that has mauled someone, but not donate for the surgery to repair the child’s ripped off face.

        I’ve even seen people argue that we need to have tax-payer funded prisons for mean dogs because it is unethical to put them to sleep after they injure people.

  • Kim

    I’m sickened but not shocked. This is precisely what we already know the slippery slope of abortion leads to – first it’s ok to kill babies in the womb. Then it’s ok to kill babies right after birth. Then. . .

    • plumberskid

      Exactly. We dabated this back in ’73 and said then, that this would happen. Of course, the left accused us of lying and fear-mongering. Yet, here we are.

      • Kim

        I believe it. Same thing will happen with “SSM.” I’m a forensic therapist and come into contact with all sorts of criminals and can’t believe what I see and hear sometimes. The pedophile brigade is waiting and ready to battle for the “sexual rights” of children. I give it 40-50 years if things keep on this way.

        • ked5

          I think you’re being optimistic with that guestimate. I don’t think we have that long.

        • trixiewoobeans

          Germany’s animal lover’s (and I’m speaking in the carnal sense), are urging acceptance of their “sexual preference” right now.

        • Judy B

          It won’t take 40-50 years, not even half that time…probably 10 or less. The snowball quickly begins an avalanche.

    • Judy B

      I witnessed an abortion clinic worker say that until a child could “walk & talk in sentences”, it was not human being & the parents should be able to kill it if they so desired. That’s the death mentality of these evil people.

  • J. Cox

    Why is western society on the decline?Culture of death.Why are there so many murders,rapes,drug addicts…because people have fought to let them become like this under other names..such as women’s rights.Exactly how old does a baby have to be now to receive rights?According to PP….never.Thanks to all those marching for this.You created this,you celebrate this,you are responsible.

    *Note*..the use of the term Women’s rights was specifically used to denote abortion,not the larger cause that real,noble, women fought for.

  • Dale Black

    There is no such thing as a “post-birth abortion”. It’s murder, even under the most abortion-friendly reading of Roe v. Wade. Ask “Dr.” Gosnell. What Ms. Snow advocates would be best classified as second-degree murder– gross negligence.causing death. If the child is born alive, PP has the obligation to provide any reasonably necessary medical care, including transportation to a hospital. If they fail to do so, the abortionist and staff should be charged with murder, just as any other doctor would if he put a patient’s life in danger and then refused care.

  • TJ

    Masks are coming of when they are at all challenged openly what they push for behind closed doors.

  • almarquardt

    Post-birth abortion? What a term. Taken literally, that means there is no such thing as murder. For instance, if someone 85 years old is killed, the crime could still be defined as “post-birth abortion.”

    • plumberskid

      Exactly. The left is in the process of decimating the Amendments to the Constitution, and now are starting to work on the 10 Commandments. There goes the 4th…..

    I’ve been venting my spleen on Twitter cuz that’s what it’s for. Cathartic, but I’ll never get used to the number of helpless victims of the most innocent kind being sacrificed on the altar of selfish soulessness. I’m struck by the lack of coordination between this story and the trial of Kermit Gosner. This story is nothing but repugnant and a stark warning, so they’ll talk about it as little as possible, with less detail than a Sarah Palin sighting. Imagine if SNL ran a. ‘Kermit the Abortioner’ muppet skit to highlight this issue? Hey, it’s funny right? A famous muppet has the same name as an abortionist charged with a string of crimes and a ‘house of horrors’. Seems to me there’s enough of a thread to string stories like this together to gauge public reaction, but maybe that’s what twitter will do best. Keep rocking Twitch and co.

  • plumberskid

    You have to wonder just how much effort a “doctor” (and I use the term loosely) would put into saving the life of an infant he was in the process of killing in the first place.

  • http://www.facebook.com/richard.jefferies.96 Richard Jefferies

    Don’t be shocked. This just slipped out. It is what they believe, it’s what they always have believed. If they thought they could argue for straight infantacide they would, or did at Oxford according to the Telegraph:


    It is the logical conclusion anyway. If it’s okay to medically terminate a pregnancy with an awl and a shop-vac why isn’t okay to give them a needle at birth. Only hardened criminals convicted of multiple murders are worthy of liberal compassion.

    • TocksNedlog

      No no no no no! See, she was positing a hypothetical ‘what if?’ scenario; as in, “Why should we bother trying to save it if there’s a good chance that it’s gonna die anyway?”

      Bet you wish YOU could be that practical about important things, huh?

    • Cake

      If a hospital is “too far away” and not worth the hassle to send a baby for medical help, then it is too far away to send the mother if something goes wrong during the abortion. So basically they’d just leave the mother to bleed out and die too.

      And they claim pro-life people don’t care about women or born children.

  • DiscontentWithLiars

    It’s not a problem, born alive is just a bump in the road. It’s obvious that all abortion Physicians would do everything they could to save a life. Only a fool would say that the hospital is too far away to help, or that there are no other docters that could help. Nobody would be concerned about the liability of a botched abortion, since life is so precious to all these folks. The fetus (although a living human being that has been born alive that most of us would call a baby) would be a financial burden if the attending physician had to arrange to have her/him sent to a hospital, and the mother didn’t want the baby to live anyway.
    Well maybe there are those that don’t have a problem with this. It is depressing to see a country, and a group of people that support this. Do they really not care? Is it OK? This is just insanity!!!

We see this more and more today with mental whack jobs shooting up adults and kids and not affiliated with Republicans. The best way to pass the buck is to blame someone else. The Democrat motto.

    Murder of a baby in the womb is no different then killing them outside the womb. Killing the baby outside the womb only makes it more real to those who dont want to think of it. I am amazed every time I read about abortion that any thinking feeling human being can allow this to continue. I especially wonder how a mother can do it, or a father or grandparents can stand by and allow there offspring to be torn to pieces. The pain for the baby must be unbelievable. How Horrible for everyone but especially the baby. Someday we as a society will pay for this. God have mercy on America for the millions of innocent babies we have allowed to be murdered.
