At the judgment of God, Governor Roy Cooper’s veto of the Born Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act will be named and condemned along with the infanticide practiced by the Inca Empire, Carthage, Greece, Rome, and pagan European tribes of yesteryear.
Despite the Governor’s denial that the problem the legislation addresses does not exist, CDC data does confirm babies are born alive after botched abortions. From 2003 to 2014 there were between 376 and 588 infant deaths under the medical code P96.4 – a code that keeps track of infants who were born alive after the “termination of a pregnancy.” At least 143 of the 588 were “definitely” born alive after an abortion and lived from minutes to one or more days, the CDC concluded. This is even believed to be an underestimate because these are figures reported from hospitals and not abortion clinics.
Abortion clinics have every reason to hide this gruesome side of the abortion industry. Abortionist Kermit Gosnell, who was convicted of killing three born-alive infants and now serving a life-sentence in prison, is known to have destroyed hundreds of born alive babies by “snipping” their spines because they were targeted for an abortion. Federal agents raided his clinic not because he was killing born-alive infants but because of his illegal prescription drug activity.
There are testimonials from nurses and other abortion clinic workers, and even born-alive abortion survivors, who confirmed the killing of born-alive children is taking place.
Governor Cooper is wrong when he says our state already has laws to protect born-alive infants. The legislation he vetoed makes something clear that isn’t. Is a child’s entitlement to the full protections of the law contingent upon whether the mother wants the child? Does the right to an abortion mean the right to a dead baby? Instead, the proposed legislation for all purposes of North Carolina law, clarifies that any infant who is completely expelled from the mother and alive is a “person.”
The Governor’s judgment on this matter would have served him better if he hadn’t sold his soul to leftists who promise to help keep him in power.
