Watch Saturday: First Vote on Infant Born Alive in House Health Committee
Tune in Saturday8:30 a.m. to watch as the House Health Committee debates this basic care bill. See how they vote and hold them accountable. If these Legislators believe babies should be left to die or killed, they do not deserve to hold elected office in our state.
SHOCKING FACT: Due to the lack of any state law that would require medical care be given to infants born alive after a failed abortion--these innocent, helpless newborn survivors can and most likely are being left to die in abortion clinics and hospitals across the state.
The federal Infant Born Alive Protection Act does not require these victims be given medical care or nourishment, which is why the NM Legislature needs to pass HB 275 this year-- to prevent this heinous, almost unbelievable disregard for human life from taking place.
Not only can these newborn babies be left to die --they could be intentionally killed, like convicted late-term abortionist Kermit Gosnell who snipped the spinal cords of babies who came out alive during abortions-- some would let out whimpers others screams. The late-term abortion method he used called "induction" abortion can result in a live birth, since the birthing process is unnatural and uncontrolled and can take anywhere from 2-7 days for women to deliver. Protocols for this outlined by UNM OB-GYN Dept Chair Eve Espey who also serves as Director for UNM's late-term abortion clinic clearly indicate this occurrence of infants born alive, but again, NMAFL and taxpayers of New Mexico ask, what care is provided to these babies? Are they left to die in a utility room without comfort or nourishment? Are they just set aside or intentionally killed? This is simply unacceptable, and NMAFL along with New Mexicans across the state demand basic human rights be upheld by passing HB 275 "Require Medical Care for All Infants."
UNM's protocol by Eve Espey: outlines how to fill out a birth certificate, makes no mention of care for the born alive victim. See the full document here.
As in the case of Kermit Gosnell and others, a crying, frightened newborn baby inside an abortion clinic is bad for business, he opted to snuff out their lives by various cruel and barbaric means, including snipping their spinal cords. What is happening inside Southwestern Women's Options late-term clinic or University of New Mexico's late-term clinic? Are these babies leaving the clinics alive? Are they set aside somewhere inside the abortion clinic? The majority of late-term abortions are elective and in New Mexico the rate is 5 times the national average according to the CDC.
Sadly, pro-life New Mexicans did not show up in great numbers for the first committee hearing of this historic, humanitarian legislation. This issue has nothing to do with so called "abortion rights" however the rabid, pro-abortion crowd and their paid activists did show up, and displayed all levels of histrionics in opposition: "this bill will create a police state," "this bill is insidious" or making misleading statements like, "this bill will interfere with the relationship between a woman and her doctor."
Those, including multiple physicians, in favor of the bill made fact-filled statements as to why children who survive abortion are innocent victims and should be given basic medical care and nourishment. How can anyone in their right mind be so cruel as to deny a newborn baby medical care and nourishment? This reveals the extreme, unsympathetic and unflinching disregard the pro-abortion industry and their activists have for these newborn victims. Babies who didn't ask to be killed, who don't have a voice-- except for those who will stand up and fight for them, who will be their voice?
WILL YOU BE A VOICE FOR THESE HELPLESS VICTIMS?
Babies like this can be left to die in NM abortion clinics and hospitals--unless you speak up for them now.
NOW IS THE TIME TO ACT Will you take the time to do something about this...Or will you do nothing? If you can't be a voice for these victims, who will? PLEASE take the time to get involved NOW, this is a critical time for the lives at stake: 1) Are you able to contact your legislators, friends, church, pastors and ask them to help us stand up for human rights and fight the culture of death at the NM Legislature? 2) Will you consider attending committee hearings, clear your schedule and go speak to your elected representatives during the legislative session? That's all it takes--is more citizens like YOU to take action, and hold them accountable. There are less than two weeks left to get this bill through the House and Senate, follow NMAFL updates for information.
4) SHARE THIS SHOCKING INFORMATION WITH EVERYONE. THIS IS NOT ABOUT ABORTION, THIS IS A HUMAN RIGHTS OUTRAGE. SINCE THE MEDIA IS SILENT YOUR VOICE IS NEEDED NOW TO SPEAK UP FOR THE VICTIMS.
It's time for the people of New Mexico to rise up and stand up for those most vulnerable and innocent members of society. It's time to start holding elected officials and the abortion industry accountable. It's time to take back our state from rabid pro-abortion activists paid by the out-of state abortion industry and propped up by extremist pro-abortion elected officials.
