I mean this sincerely. Is there anything that could be done to an unborn baby in her mother’s womb that Planned Parenthood would say, “No, of course not. This goes too far, even for us.”
Answer? Of course not. Suck them out, dismember them, poison them—what difference does that make? The objective is to get those babies dead.
How this is accomplished is between the aborting women and her abortionist. If the baby were to suffer unimaginable pain, well such is the price of “bodily autonomy.”
I also mean this sincerely. What if a baby makes it through the abortion mill’s gauntlet and is born alive? Is there anything that could be done (besides, perhaps, wrapping her in a blanket) to save that baby that would be obligatory? That is, you must do because it is what is normally done to any premature baby born at the same age?
And the answer, of course, is no. Which is why Planned Parenthood celebrated the defeat of the Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act (S. 130) sponsored by Sen. Ben Sasse (R-Neb.) Proponents had a majority but (thanks to nearly uniform Democrat opposition) not the 60 votes necessary to move forward (“invoke cloture”).
Here a couple of examples:
Today's NO vote was a vote to protect women and women’s rights to reproductive freedom.
A YES vote would have criminalized doctors.
We trust women, and we trust providers.

And from the President of PPFA
As a mother to a one-year old, I am disgusted by @RealDonaldTrump’s lies that aim to stoke fear and division. I know his true intention: to shame women, limit our access to health care, and take away our rights. https://t.co/8JSgPKQmdk

“Shame women”? “To require that medical professionals give the same standard care and medical treatment to newborn babies who have survived an attempted abortion as any other newborn baby would receive in any other circumstance,” as Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said yesterday? Does even Dr. Wen believe this drivel?
“Stoke fear and division”? You mean among the 77% of Americans who agree that “a baby who survives a failed abortion would be given the same medical treatment as any other baby born prematurely at the same age”? I think it is Dr. Wen who is stoking division, wouldn’t you agree?
“Limit our access to health care and take way our rights”? Whose “health care” is being limited? The abortion survivor’s! Whose “rights” are being taken away? The child who no longer is insider her mother’s womb, that’s who.
What has taken place in states like New York and Virginia and Vermont and New Mexico and Illinois, to name just a few, someday will be seen as the bottoming out of the anti-life ethos. With a manufactured “crisis” about the overturning of Roe in the next 15 minutes, they are obliterating all limitations on abortion throughout all “40 weeks” (to quote the sponsor of the Virginia “Repeal Bill”) and declared open season on abortion survivors.
It is the natural progression (in a manner of speaking) of the anti-life ethos. There can never, ever be enough abortions. There can never, ever be requirements to treat abortion survivors as human beings with human rights.
They must be stopped.
