Planned Parenthood lobbyist testifies against born-alive infants protection act.
Representative: What objection could you possibly have to obligate a doctor to transfer a child born alive to a hospital, where it seems to me they would be most likely to be able to survive?
Alisa LaPolt Snow: What about those situations where it’s in a rural healthcare setting, the hospital is 45 minutes, and hour away, that’s the closest trauma center or emergency room? You know there’s just some logistical issues involved that we have some concerns about.
“So, um, it is just really hard for me to even ask you this question because I’m almost in disbelief,” said Rep. Jim 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 Planned Parenthood lobbyist Snow.
Twitter Responds to the Video of Planned Parenthood Lobbyist advocating Infanticide
Dear @PPact: A "post-birth abortion" already has a name. It's called infanticide.

I'd hardly consider the Florida Alliance of Planned Parenthood Affiliates the "good guys" in health care, @alisa_snow. They're murderers.
