Planned Parenthood Endorses Infanticide

Sep 20, 2019

The gruesome reality that beating hearts were harvested from living babies inside Planned Parenthood abortion facilities came to light this week in Sandra Merritt's just-finished criminal hearing.

That’s cruel infanticide. It’s also something Planned Parenthood endorses as I share below. Learn more in my note and join me in pressuring vulnerable House Democrats to pass legislation to stop infanticide and mandate life-saving care for infants born alive after botched abortions.

You can do that using our Fax Congress service now.

Research scientist Dr. Theresa Deisher testified in Sandra Merritt’s criminal hearing Wednesday as to her horror in learning that human hearts harvested from living babies were being used for research.

She made that shocking discovery after reading studies that used baby human hearts sourced from abortion giant Planned Parenthood. Dr. Deisher said the nature of those studies indicated that the hearts had to be still beating when cut out, without anesthesia, from the aborted babies.

That's breathtaking, cruel and criminal. It's also infanticide—something Planned Parenthood endorsed last February.

+  +  Planned Parenthood endorses infanticide

The abortion provider co-signed an abortion industry letter telling U.S. Senators they opposed a measure stopping infanticide and mandating life-saving care for babies who survive botched abortions.

Prohibiting infanticide, Planned Parenthood told lawmakers, is "another restriction on women’s access to reproductive health care.”


Instead of rushing in to protect precious infants born alive, Planned Parenthood said in the letter to lawmakers, "Every woman needs to be able to make the decision that is best for her and her family.”

And that, of course, means infanticide--killing babies outside the womb.

Which is why it's crucial that you and I make our voice heard--loud and strong--in Congress today.

+  +  Democrats block bill to stop infanticide!

Democrats in the House and Senate are blocking legislation to prevent the killing of newborn infant children. The Democrat position on abortion is now so extreme that they don't mind executing babies AFTER birth.

Last February, in one of the most shocking votes in the history of Congress, Senate Democrats chose death over life, voting down the Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act.

And in the House, Democrats have done the same. On 80 separate occasions, Democrats, led by Speaker Pelosi, have blocked a vote on the life-affirming Born-Alive Abortion Survivor Protection Act.

But there is a solution. And we're getting close.

It will take 218 House member signatures on a "discharge petition" to bring this pro-life bill to a vote. So far, 200 members have signed--197 Republicans but just 3 Democrats!

That's an outrage!

Democrats are radically out of step with the American public. Some 77 percent of Americans want babies who survive abortion to be given medical care--just like any other newborn infant.

That means Democrats in swing districts who stand with Speaker Pelosi on the side of death are vulnerable to pressure from Americans like you.

Which is why I'm urging you to join me today in calling on House Democrats in swing districts to side with the American public and sign the discharge petition.

You can do that right now by sending a pre-written fax targeting vulnerable House Democrats. Act now to send your fax urging key Democrats to sign the discharge petition to bring this measure to stop infanticide to a House vote.

Democrats are desperate to stop a vote. They're panicked at going on record against this pro-life bill and showing how out of step they are with the American public!

Let's force a vote. Join me in faxing vulnerable House Democrats to sign the discharge petition and bring the Born-Alive Abortion Survivor's Protection Act to a House vote.

Make your voice heard! Join me and many others in sending a pre-written fax to vulnerable House Democrats today.
