The Florida State Legislature is considering legislation (HB1129) that would require physicians to care for a baby who survives an abortion attempt. They were understandably shocked when a lobbyist for the Florida Alliance of Planned Parenthood Affiliates, Alisa LaPolt Snow, told the lawmakers that the decision "should be up to the woman and her doctor". Of course she tries to wiggle around the question and claim she "doesn't have that information" when asked a direct question; in other words, she's flat-out lying.
What is happening is that Planned Parenthood and other murderers of babies simply cannot keep up the charade of pretending the baby isn't a person from his/her conception. The "decision" is regarding infanticide, that is, the murder of babies already born. They can't pull out the "Her body! Her choice!" mantra since the baby has exited her body. They can't call it "terminating a pregnancy" since by definition the exiting of the baby from the mother has already terminated "the pregnancy".
As you watch the clip below, you'll see how cockroaches try to run when light is shed. But this one can't so she must squirm. By the way, the full session can be viewed here, with the "clip" portion beginning around the 38-minute mark.
A tangential point before I close - One of Snow's objections to obliging an abortionist to treat a child who survives the abortion is that an abortuary might be too far from a hospital (towards the end of the clip). Well, golly-gee-whiz! Might that not be a problem if the mother herself is seriously injured? It's a pity that question wasn't asked of her.
