Editor’s Note: The bill before the Senate, S.311 the Born-Alive Abortion Survivor’s Protection Act was rejected last tonight.
What does this mean for those newborn babies born alive after an attempted abortion? For some it means “palliative care,” also known as end of life care. Medical professionals will not provide any life-saving measures to the newborn baby.
End of life care is often described as the effort to preserve, comfort, and the effort to avoid suffering, the decision is made to forgo or withdraw futile measures and the decision to allow natural death.
For others, it means carrying out the final execution of a born-alive baby under the heinous guise of palliative care. What it should be called is intentional murder Do-Not-Care.
No longer can we expect medical professionals to ethically and morally carry out their responsibility to those newborn babies who have survived attempted murder.
I am of the opinion that purposely allowing those newborns who have survived a attempted murder has been already quietly and secretly carried out in hospitals and clinics across this nation.
This vote strips off the mask of benevolence and reveals the true character behind it. The grotesque reality that there are those among this nation, from politicians to mothers and fathers who are wantonly murdering the most vulnerable among us – the pain and suffering born-alive babies who have fought with all their might to survive attempted murder.
