Florida lawmakers are considering a bill that would require doctors to provide medical care to an infant who survives an abortion.
During a committee hearing this week, Alisa Snow (pictured), a lobbyist representing the Florida Alliance of Planned Parenthood Affiliates, was asked by State Rep. Jim Boyd what should happen to a baby who survives an abortion and is born on a table (video below).
Their exchange, as reported by The Weekly Standard:
"So, um, it is just really hard for me to even ask you this question because I’m almost in disbelief," said Rep. 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 Snow.
"What happens in a situation where a baby is alive, breathing on a table, moving. What do your physicians do at that point,” asked State Rep. Daniel Davis.
"I do not have that information," Snow replied. "I am not a physician, I am not an abortion provider. So I do not have that information.”
"You stated that a baby born alive on a table as a result of a botched abortion that that decision should be left to the doctor and the family. Is that what you’re saying,” said State Rep. Jose Oliva.
“That decision should be between the patient and the health care provider,” said Snow.
