WASHINGTON, Sept. 17, 2015 /Christian Newswire/ — Late September 16, the White House issued an astonishing announcement that President Obama “will veto” a bill that does nothing but provide protection for babies who are born alive during late abortions – because he thinks the bill “would likely have a chilling effect” on access to late abortions.
The U.S. House of Representatives is scheduled to vote tomorrow on the bill, the Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act (H.R. 3504). The bill will make it a federal crime to kill a baby who is born alive during an abortion, either through overt acts of violence or gross neglect.
The president of the National Right to Life Committee (NRLC), Carol Tobias, commented regarding the White House statement: “President Obama’s subservience to the abortion lobby is so complete that he now threatens to use his pen to protect the abortionist who would kill a baby born alive, rather than to protect that helpless baby.”
Douglas D. Johnson, NRLC legislative director, said: “Congressional Democrats who follow the president into this extreme territory will have many future opportunities to try to explain why they voted against making it a crime to snip the spine of a born-alive baby, or to harvest that baby’s liver while her heart still beats.”
