(AgapePress) - Wendy Wright of Concerned Women for America says infanticide practices are taking place in many abortion clinics and hospitals throughout our nation. She asserts some of these incidences amount to homicide, based on court rulings.
"There's no question in the law that any infant that is born is considered a legal person," Wright says. "Yet the reality is there are nurses who have testified that in the hospitals they've been at, and in many hospitals around the country, babies that survive abortion--or babies simply born alive and not wanted or claimed by their parents--are being left to die or are actively killed."
She insists abortionists are delivering live babies and then casting them aside to die. Abortionists who are involved in this practice insist it is more humane than other forms of abortion that take place inside the womb.
"This defies all logic," she insists. "If a baby survives an abortion or survives any delivery, they should be treated with the same care as any other person would be treated."
Wright says that is why Congressman Charles Canady introduced the Born Alive Infants Protection Act. The bill is being acted upon in committee, and final passage is expected in both the House and Senate. If the bill is passed into law, it would end this practice which Wright says is basically homicide.
