[Micaiah Bilger | LifeNews] Wisconsin Gov. Tony Evers slammed President Donald Trump as blasphemous on Tuesday after the president called out Democrats for refusing to protect newborns from infanticide.
Evers, a pro-abortion Democrat, said he will veto a bill to require doctors to provide medical care to infants who survive abortions. He claims the bill is unnecessary.
“To say that doctors in the state of Wisconsin are executing babies is just a blasphemy,” Evers said, according to the AP.
He also described Trump’s comments as “horrific.”
Over the weekend, Trump criticized Evers and other Democrats for refusing to support the legislation during a speech in Wisconsin.
“Your Democrat governor here in Wisconsin, shockingly, stated that he will veto legislation that protects Wisconsin babies born alive,” Trump said Saturday.
“The baby is born, the mother meets with the doctor. They take care of the baby, they wrap the baby beautifully, and then the doctor and the mother determine whether or not they will execute the baby,” he continued.
Currently, 19 states do not have laws requiring medical care for babies born alive after botched abortions, according to research by Americans United for Life.
Statistics from the Centers for Disease Control, as well as the personal testimonies of nurses and abortion survivors themselves, indicate that babies do sometimes survive abortions. According to the CDC, at least 143 babies were born alive after botched abortions between 2003 and 2014 in the U.S., though there may be more.
However, research by the American Center for Law and Justice estimated the number is much higher, at least 362between 2001 and 2010.
Our analysis is further supported by data from Canada that shows in the last reported ten years, “491 babies were left to die after they were born alive during abortions.” A look at how these statistics are recorded by Canada’s official recording agency (also using ICD-10 code P96.4), explained here and here, further confirms the data recorded by the CDC. In Britain it is reported that 50 babies are born alive as the result of botched abortions each year. Additionally, an “estimated 44,000 abortion survivors” are living in the United States today.
Interestingly, one of Planned Parenthood’s own leaders once unintentionally admitted the need for such legislation. In 2013, during a hearing in the Florida legislature, Planned Parenthood lobbyist Alisa LaPolt Snow said the mother and doctor should be allowed to decide if a born-alive infant receives medical care. In other words, the baby could be denied medical care and left to die.
