Florida legislators considering a bill to require abortionists to provide medical care to an infant who survives an abortion were shocked during a committee hearing this week when a Planned Parenthood official endorsed a right to post-birth abortion.
Alisa Laport Snow, the lobbyist representing the Florida Alliance of Planned Parenthood Affiliates, testified that her organization believes the decision to kill an infant who survives a failed abortion should be left up to the woman seeking an abortion and her abortion doctor.
"So, um, it is just really hard for me to even ask you this question because I’m almost in disbelief," said Rep. Jim Boyd. "If a baby is born on a table as a result of a botched abortion, what would Planned Parenthood want to have happen to that child that is struggling for life?”
"We believe that any decision that's made should be left up to the woman, her family, and the physician," said Planned Parenthood lobbyist Snow.
Rep. Daniel Davis then asked Snow, "What happens in a situation where a baby is alive, breathing on a table, moving. What do your physicians do at that point?”
"I do not have that information," Snow replied. "I am not a physician, I am not an abortion provider. So I do not have that information.”
Rep. Jose Oliva followed up, asking the Planned Parenthood official, "You stated that a baby born alive on a table as a result of a botched abortion that that decision should be left to the doctor and the family. Is that what you’re saying?”
Again, Snow replied, “That decision should be between the patient and the health care provider.”

Neither post-rock nor post-metal, NWI! exist somewhere in between, adding some quirky math-rock overtones and a classy violin-driven progressive rock signature to their sound.

The precarious political climate in Ethiopia is no secrete. However, the hidden genocidal massacres in Ethiopia's Ogaden/Somali region or Zone 5 is very much ignored by the international community. Specifically ignored by the U.S. which has given Ethiopia more then 2 billion in aid. The Ogaden region of Ethiopia is largely invisible to the world due to the lack of coverage on the issues. Today, many are faced with man made famine caused by the blockade of trade (live stock, etc) imposed on the civilians by it's own government, the plethora of aid that is deliberately withheld, and the difficult conditions for humanitarian organizations that continually get kicked out of the country. There have been civilian lynchings, murders, life imprisonments without trails, burnings of villages, and killings in village centers to set examples.
The interesting story that I'd love Current TV to cover is the long and dangerous journey to escape the Ogaden region into the borders of Kenya by foot. This journey does not end in Kenya and the young men who are luckily strong enough to raise funds on their own or have family in places like the States who are able to afford to send them money, go on to buy passports. They travel to South Africa to find/buy a visa to Cuba, from Cuba to Baliz, from Baliz, to El Salvador/Columbia where they take the journey all the way to the borders of San Diego where they are arrested and assigned a Lawyer. Here, they attempt to seek asylum and finally reach the end of their long and dangerous journey. Many end up stranded in countries where they don't speak the language. They are forced to find the strength to find work, learn the language, and go ont to continue the journey as soon as possible.
Often, the families that send these young men the money to attempt these long and dangerous quests are on Welfare, in Section 8 housing, and are struggling to make ends meet here in the U.S. They spend all their savings or find family members who are willing to contribute for the hope that their loved one's (brothers, sons, and Cousins) will soon join them.
It's a story that needs to be told especially since WE are directly supporting a murderous government with our tax dollars. As Americans we should be aware of how our money and aid is spent and we have the right to know when we are directly supporting genocidal massacres. The interest for Ethiopia to continue to illegally occupy the Ogaden region is largely due to Oil discovery. Ethiopia has been attempting to explore the Ogaden basins but because of dangerous rebel ambushes from the indigenous civilians it has been so far proved unsuccessful.The precarious political climate in Ethiopia is no secrete.
