Born Alive By Bill Bush
If you think that no one believes it is okay to allow a baby to die after a botched abortion, please read.
In January, New York passed a new abortion law, and part of that law repealed a previous law that any baby that is born alive as the result of an abortion be provided “immediate legal protection under the laws of the state of New York.”
Proponents downplayed any significance in the change and assured the public that it rarely happens and that any baby born in New York would be treated with appropriate medical care no matter the circumstances behind the birth.
Of course I’ve never seen it explained why they would repeal the law if that were the case.
Shortly after the New York law passed, Virginia Governor Northam made his now famous quote about leaving a baby to die after an attempted abortion.
I realize that the belief that it is okay to kill or allow a baby that is the result of a failed abortion to die is an extreme view. That doesn’t mean it doesn’t exist.
Lifenews.com recently reported stories from a nurse who witnessed babies born alive being turned face down in the saline, prior to the passing of a bill in North Carolina aimed at stopping infanticide.

One could only guess how pervasive the support among the pro-abortion crowd is for allowing children to die after failed abortions.
In case you still doubt that anyone could have such an evil belief, theblaze.com has a clip of a young woman discussing abortion in a public arena. When asked why she doesn’t think a baby born from a failed abortion should be given medical care, she answered, “Because they're performing an abortion, so before that they've already determined that it's not a baby.”
Don’t take my word for it; watch for yourself:
Pro-abortionists will argue that babies born alive after a failed abortion is rare. Maybe. The CDC reports there were 143 between 2003 and 2014. The problem with that number is that only six states require some reporting on abortions that result in a baby born alive: Arizona, Florida, Michigan, Minnesota, Oklahoma, and Texas.
Another problem with that argument is the use of the term rare.
Recently on Fox News, Bernie Sanders was asked if he believe a woman should be able to terminate a pregnancy up to the moment of birth.
“I think that that happens very, very rarely.” Sanders went on to repeat the pro-abortion mantra that the decision should be made between a woman and her doctor.
When asked about third-trimester abortions the pro-abortion side frequently begins their response that those cases are rare. I beg to differ.
The truth is that a little over 1% of all abortions are done after 24 weeks. Yes, that sounds rare until you put real numbers to it. At roughly a million abortions done every year, 1% represents 10,000 abortions. To me, that’s a significant number of dead babies.
Relatively, 1% is rare. Objectively, 10,000 is not.
Pro-abortion advocates are clever at how they phrase their arguments. But when you put meaning behind their statements, what sounds main-stream is revealed for the evil it is.
