Skip to comments.Attorney General Holder has no knowledge of enforcing Born-Alive Infant Protection Act

For several weeks now, LiveAction has been publishing a series of articles revealing the secret horror taking place inside abortion clinics the deliberate murder of infants born alive following a failed abortion. (LifeSiteNews has reprinted and cataloged this series here.) Gruesome testimonies of nurses forced to ignore infants gasping for breath, or covered in horrific wounds. Undeniable reports of doctors strangling, drowning and suffocating infants who just wont die. Photos of tiny, still children, with skin the undeniable pink of a human being who had shortly before had a heartbeat.
Most of these stories occurred prior to the passage of the Born Alive Infant Protection Act, (BAIPA) passed in 2002, specifically to protect the most vulnerable of society (at least upon their birth). The Act requires that any newborn showing specified signs of life, including voluntary movement, pulsation of the umbilical cord, or a heartbeat, be given immediate and lifesaving medical care, even if the infant was born following a failed abortion.
As Live Actions recent investigative campaign Inhuman revealed, however, abortionists are clearly willing to ignore or circumvent the law to ensure a dead baby. This should come as no surprise, since some cases of deliberate infanticide have been recorded since the 2002 passage of the Act, including a baby girl thrown into a plastic bag to suffocate, and then hidden on the roof, and the heart-wrenching story of Baby Rowen, who died as his mother screamed for someone to help the tiny child. Then there was the discovery of Kermit Gosnell and his House of Horrors, which discovered a routine practice of delivering living infants, and severing their spinal cords. Then the revelation of Another Gosnell, a Texas abortionist who former staffers say often delivered living babies, then slashed their throats or literally twisted the infants heads off their necks.
Given the wide range of evidence in these cases, including photos of murdered newborns with pink, intact skin (indicating live birth and no decomposition) and the affidavits of multiple nurses who participated in and witnessed these procedures, this would normally be considered every prosecutors dream an open-and-shut case whereby a gruesome murderer is served with justice. Yet when Attorney General Eric Holder was asked yesterday by a Congressional committee whether BAIPA has been enforced, even once, Holder had no idea whether AGs office, the agency in charge of enforcing the law, had ever taken steps to charge anyone with violating the federal statute.
No knowledge of any cases ever filed, despite the clear evidence of continuing infanticide. Despite the fact that, according to the Congressman asking the question, there have been approximately 18,000 opportunities since enactment of the law, to enforce these protections. Despite the fact that a Planned Parenthood counselor was caught on video admitting to routine infanticide seven years after BAIPA was passed. Despite the fact that a strong case can be made, using CDC death statistics and the Guttmacher Institutess own reports of abortions, that at least 1 in 45 abortions of infants 2o weeks or later results in a live birth. Despite overwhelming evidence that federal statutes were routinely being violated, Americas attorney general does not know if any action was ever taken, even once, to prosecute clear cases of murder.
Perhaps this should be no surprise, however. Obama himself voted multiple times against state legislation designed to protect newborns, then lied about his reasoning, claiming it did not contain protections for true abortions, even when it clearly did. Planned Parenthood, by far the nations largest abortion provider, also recently testified in a Florida legislative hearing in opposition to a state Born Alive Act, stating that whatever decision is made regarding a born-alive infant should be left up to the woman, her family, and the physician.
Given the propensity to ignore, cover-up, or outright support the clear murder of newborn children, it may not be all that amazing that the man in charge of enforcing the federal statute simply doesnt know if any such efforts were ever made.
Same for Obozo.
He must have ‘verbally recused’ himself from that because he was a rectal birth.
Selective enforcement of the ‘Law of the Land’
while ignoreing violations of that law creats Chaos ..
and makes the administration and execution of that Law ..
A Criminal ACT !!
I wouldn’t guess so!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Wake up America.
Holdup and crew were too busy in trying to abort the DOMA Act. Saving innocent baby lives is not on their agenda.
Lets see how the Supreme Idiots rule on DOMA coming up. In the meanwhile commence with the baby killings... what a fluxed up government we have here.
“Eric Holder Failed to Disclose Wifes Abortion Clinic Ties”
That’s Eric Withholder.
Holder is a slimy lawyer and nothing else.
