At a committee hearing in the Florida legislature on a proposed “Born Alive Bill,” Planned Parenthood’s Alisa Lepolt Snow stunningly asserted that the fate of a child who survives a botched abortion should be left to the discretion of the mother and her doctor. In other words, if the mother so chooses, the baby may be denied medical treatment and left to die.
I discussed this outrageous position on my radio show this week. Two callers to my program sided with Planned Parenthood. One said that it is impossible to judge others, while the other would not answer the basic question – Do You Save The Baby On The Table? Both showed the extent of the liberal ideal of rejecting “right and wrong,” and finding no fault with what others decide, because it’s unfair to judge anything or anyone.
Listen to the audio here:
The first caller, John, wanted to defend Planned Parenthood. When I said that it is not necessary for someone to defend evil, or something that is obviously wrong, John stated:
…none of us have the power, none of have the intellect, none of us have the whatever you want to call it, to call anything or anyone truly evil.
Exactly how many ways can this be false? Answer – all of them. The recognition of the difference between good and evil is not an abstract concept. Very often, it plays itself out clearly for the world to see. If leaving a baby to die on a table is not evil, then what is (or has ever been) evil?
When I stated, “…when the baby is born, and its on the table and you leave it to die, that’s murder.” He responded with, “by who’s definition?” John then continued, “Here’s the thing where conservatives mess up. They want the government to reach into peoples lives in certain things…”
Another caller, Jay, also stated that, “keeping the government out of your bedroom is probably important.” I asked, “Do you think letting the baby die on the table is keeping government out of your bedroom?” His answer? “I’m not going to get in to that.”
Saving the life of a baby has nothing to do with government. Saving the life of a baby, a child, an adult, is something the human being does instinctively. However, as both callers have shown, this instinctive behavior has been eliminated from the Progressive mind; They have “Progressed” to the point where saving a child’s life is now not automatic, but rather a conversation that needs lengthy discussion….as the child dies.
The argument of government intervention is as fabricated as a Leftists’ standards. It is the Progressive that aggressively places government in our lives. It is Leftists and left-leaners that think government should control what types of drinks are dispensed by machines in schools and parks, so as to limit schoolkids’ sugar intake. Government should determine the size of your soft drinks or the amount of salt in your food. Government should decide whether adults can choose if they can smoke cigars.
But ask Leftists and left-leaners whether or not clinics are allowed to kill infants, and they are suddenly concerned about the long curette of government.
Planned Parenthood is a radical organization, founded by a known racist and anti-semite, which has long since advocated for infanticide. Snow’s statement, and this type of disgusting behavior from Planned Parenthood – desired by Progressives – have become par for their course.
The Progressive society has worked to eliminate the basic concepts of right and wrong. As I asked on the show, when asked whether you let the baby die on the table, how is the answer not an immediate “No!”? How is their response, or the response from Planned Parenthood, any less disgusting than a Senatorial candidate thinking that there is such a thing as legitimate rape?
As author Evan Sayet states in his book The Kindergarden of Eden, “The liberal believes if we…give up all knowledge of right and wrong, we can return to paradise.”
No law from government, or lack thereof, should allow or could prevent a rational, decent human being from helping to save the life of the baby on the table – even if that baby has survived a botched abortion.
