Segment 2 – Clinical Neonatologist Says Women’s Health Protection Act Puts Lives at Risk
“As a neonatologist, my views on abortion are not based on politics or on whatever the current talking head on television happens to be saying.  My views on abortion are based on years of caring for premature infants as a doctor and director of a neonatal intensive care unit.  From that unique perspective, I find that the deceptively named Women’s Health Protection Act is an extreme brand of politics that puts lives at risk by allowing elective abortion on demand until birth.”- Dr. Pierucci (Originally aired May 24, 2022)

Dr. Robin Pierucci is a wife, mother, and clinical neonatologist at a 50-bed neonatal intensive care unit. She is chairwoman of the Pro-Life Council and serves on the board of directors of the American College of Pediatricians.
