Will Planned Parenthood Fire Staffer Promoting Infanticide?

Will the Planned Parenthood abortion business fire a staff member who advocated infanticide during a legislative hearing before the Florida state legislature?

That’s the question Billy Valentine of the Susan B. Anthony List is asking following the nationwide attention drawn to a video LifeNews first reported on yesterday. The video shows a representative of the  Planned Parenthood abortion business in Florida opposing a bill in the state legislature that would provide medical care and legal protection for babies who are born alive after failed abortions.

This is the same legislation President Barack Obama refused to support during his time in the Illinois legislature and it mirrors a national law President George W. Bush signed after nurse Jill Stanek exposed how her Chicago-area hospital left babies to die in utility closets after botched abortions.

The pro-life bill, HB1129, ultimately cleared the House Criminal justice Subcommittee. The bill would require that medical care be given to newborns, likely to be premature, who survive botched abortions. The care would be given at a hospital and not at the abortion clinic.

“So, um, it is just really hard for me to even ask you this question because I’m almost in disbelief,” said Rep. Jim Boyd. “If a baby is born on a table as a result of a botched abortion, what would Planned Parenthood want to have happen to that child that is struggling for life?”

“We believe that any decision that’s made should be left up to the woman, her family, and the physician,” said Planned Parenthood lobbyist Alisa Snow.

Responding to the controversial video, Valentine asked on Twitter: “Will @PPact fire @alisa_snow to try to cover up extreme, radical positions? Or will they actually admit they support infanticide?”






He said it was shocking that a Planned Parenthood official would argue for “post-birth” abortion rights and said he hoped it would get more media coverage.
