No… it wasn’t to save their precious little lives, either.
Democrats swear up and down that cases like this one never ACTUALLY happen. They’re hypotheticals and completely made up.
They would have us believe that the reason Pelosi & Co. had voted AGAINST Republican ‘born alive’ laws Seventy Seven times between January and July is that such laws are unnecessary and redundant.
They would have us believe that no such cases really exist anywhere but in the imagine of pro-life activists.
Really? That’s strange. Have they all forgotten about SENATOR Obama’s voting record back when he was a junior Senator in Illinois? That time he voted against legislation obligating doctors to provide medical care for a breathing infant that had somehow survived abortion?
OBAMA: I just want to be clear because I think this was the source of the objections of the Medical Society. As I understand it, this puts the burden on the attending physician who has determined, since they were performing this procedure, that, in fact, this is a nonviable fetus; that if that fetus, or child – however way you want to describe it – is now outside the mother’s womb and the doctor continues to think that its nonviable but there’s, lets say, movement or some indication that, in fact, they’re not just out limp and dead, they would then have to call a second physician to monitor and check off and make sure that this is not a live child that could be saved. Is that correct?
OBAMA: Let me just go to the bill, very quickly. Essentially, I think, as — as this emerged during debate and during committee, the only plausible rationale, to my mind, for this legislation would be if you had a suspicion that a doctor, the attending physician, who has made an assessment that this is a nonviable fetus and that, lets say for the purposes of the mother’s health, is being — that — that labor is being induced, that that physician (a) is going to make the wrong assessment and (b) if the physician discovered, after the labor had been induced, that, in fact, he made an error, or she made an error, and, in fact, that that physician, of his own accord or her own accord, would not try to exercise the sort of medical measures and practices that would be involved in saving that child. Now, if — if you think that there are possibilities that doctors would not do that, then maybe this bill makes sense, but I — I suspect and my impression is, is that the Medical Society suspects as well that doctors feel that they would be under that obligation, that they would already be making these determinations and that, essentially, adding a — an additional doctor who then has to be called in an emergency situation to come in and make these assessments is really designed simply to burden the original decision of the woman and the physician to induce labor and perform an abortion. Now, if that’s the case – and –and I know that some of us feel very strongly one way or another on that issue – that’s fine, but I think it’s important to understand that this issue ultimately is about abortion and not live births. Because if these children are being born alive, I, at least, have confidence that a doctor who is in that room is going to make sure that they’re looked after. Thank you, Mr. President.” — Source: LifeSite
Funny how Obama’s own adopted state is the place where these chilling reports have surfaced.
Christ hospital in Oak Lawn Illinois allegedly has a ‘comfort room’ for aborted babies who are born alive to die in, according to nurse Jill Stanek.
If that language sounds familiar, that’s because there are vivid echoes of Governor Blackface-KKK-Infanticide Northam in that statement.
Stanek spoke about her experiences Wednesday at a hearing on the Born Alive Act in Washington, D.C.
The nurse explainied that while she was working at the hospital, she observed that doctors performed “live birth abortions,” a procedure in which the doctors perform an abortion and allow the baby to die during or after the abortion.
Comfort care, Stanek said, is to wrap the baby in a blanket and keep the baby warm until the baby dies. Parents at Christ Hospital were given the option to hold the baby as well.
“If staff did not have the time or desire to hold the baby, she was taken to Christ Hospital’s Comfort Room, which was complete with a First Photo machine if parents wanted professional pictures of their aborted baby, baptismal supplies, gowns and certificates, foot printing equipment and baby bracelets for mementos, and a rocking chair,” Stanek explained in a testimony previously posted by the Susan B. Anthony List.
“Before the Comfort Room was established, babies were taken to the Soiled Utility Room to die,” Stanek added in her article.
The article went on to describe two incidents where individual babies were left to die. One, where a baby had been born alive, the umbilical cord cut (but not clamped) and that baby was thrown into a garbage bag to die.
The other one was a baby with Down’s Syndrome, born at about 22 weeks, who was breathing. He was dropped in the soiled utility room, but Stanek couldn’t bear to leave him to die unattended, so she held him for 45 minutes until his little heart stopped beating.
“Toward the end, he was so quiet I could not tell if he was still alive,” Stanek said. “I held him up to the light to see through his chest wall whether his heart was still beating. After he was pronounced dead, I folded his little arms across his chest, wrapped him in a tiny shroud and carried him to the hospital morgue where all of our dead patients are taken.”
This incident prompted Stanek to end her employment at Christ Hospital.
But Pelosi assures us that such laws are unnecessary and just a PR stunt by the Republicans.
Is there a simpler explanation?
Looking around at the Democrat party ‘leaders’ these days, that explanation would actually make sense.
