Boston College student says babies who survive an abortion should die

From Daily Mail: Video footage has emerged of a college student arguing that if a baby is born alive after a botched abortion, the child should be denied healthcare and allowed to die.

Pro-life activist Kristan Hawkins was speaking at Boston College, a private Jesuit-run university, last month when the pro-choice female student made the remark during a Q&A session.

‘They were performing an abortion,’ the unidentified student said of the hypothetical scenario. ‘So, before that, they’ve already determined that it’s not a baby.’

The remark comes amid renewed debate over late-term abortion, and echoes January comments made by Virginia Governor Ralph Northam on the subject of babies born alive during botched abortions.

The exchange came during a Q&A session on March 19, when Hawkins was speaking at the invitation of Boston College’s Pro-Life Club. Hawkins is the president of Students for Life of America and has toured several universities speaking on the theme of ‘Lies Feminists Tell’.

‘Do you think that children that are apprehended at the border that are in U.S. government care…do you think babies who are going to die should be resuscitated and given care?’ Hawkins asked the student. ‘Yes,’ the student replied.

‘Okay. Do you believe that a baby who is born alive during an abortion at Planned Parenthood should get care?’ Hawkins followed up. The student replied, ‘No.’

When Hawkins pressed the student on the difference between the two scenarios, the student said that a baby that survived an abortion was ‘not a baby’.

Although most of the students who asked questions during the Q&A criticized Hawkins, with one even rudely asking if she had ever had an orgasm, some were supportive of her pro-life stance, according to an account in student newspaper The Heights.

In recent months, the abortion debate has been renewed over speculation that a changing Supreme Court could overturn the 1973 Roe v Wade decision, reverting jurisdiction over abortion laws back to individual states.

Ohio this week became the latest state to enact a ‘heartbeat’ bill, which bans abortions after a fetal heartbeat can be detected by ultrasound.

Anti-abortion activists hope that court challenges to these new state laws will go before the Supreme Court and establish a new precedent.

Meanwhile, New York in January passed a sweeping law legalizing abortion up until the moment of birth, and allowing non-doctors to perform abortions.

Around the same time, Virginia Governor Northam, a Democrat, defended a similar bill in his state. Northam, a pediatric doctor, described a hypothetical situation where a severely deformed newborn infant could be left to die.

He said that if a woman were to desire an abortion as she’s going into labor, the baby would be delivered and then ‘resuscitated if that’s what the mother and the family desired, and then a discussion would ensue’ between doctors and the mother.

Late-term abortions are an emotionally charged subject on all sides of the issue, although they are relatively rare.

A 2014 CDC study found that 1.3 per cent of abortions in the U.S. occur during or after the 21st week of gestation.

When did American women, whom God/nature created to nurture life, become so heartless, anti-life, and downright murderous? I admire conservatives like Kristan Hawkins who persist in speaking to and debating the pro-abort Left. I don’t, because I believe it’s a waste of whatever limited time and energy I have. I gave up on changing them because in 10 years of blogging, I have not encountered even one Leftist who had changed their minds because of the information, facts, or reasoning we provide on FOTM. Not one. As the rabidly pro-abort female student in this video demonstrates, which is demonstrated again… Read more »

“They” determined that’s it’s not a baby. Easy peasey, it’s not a baby, kill it. Next. I think if they consulted the baby, “it” would beg to differ. So I have determined that this pro-choice womyn is not human. She abandoned her humanity long ago. Although I imagine that people who know her would describe her as “nice”. And Jesus wept..

Of course a baby after it is born is a baby. These sickos are trying to justify their beliefs that murder is okay. May all of these deviants have a short miserable life and never allowed to create the most amazing gift from God, they lost that right.
Their time would be more wisely spent, educating in birth control and preventions.

On ruling out mental illness for these creatures: The diagnostic criteria for mental illness focus on the degree of functional impairment. These critters, despite living in cloud cuckooland which is diametrically the opposite of objective reality, have no functional impairment for the most part. They get along quite well in life and they are very “rational” (not by Christian standards of course). So they get a clean bill of mental health. Which again leaves only demonic influence as the only explanation for what they are. Not crazy, evil. Demonic. To us it looks like crazy. It mimics crazy. But there… Read more »

Isn’t that what this is really about? One of the most basic things in life is agreeing that an infant is a person. If they can actually get people to disagree about that, all their other nonsense is petty.

So, life isn’t life, gender isn’t related to sex, women and men aren’t different, all the evil in life is due to “White Devils”…..! If Satan had a “to do” list this would be it.

There is absolutely no fixing stupid, and this young student and Gov. Northam are stupidity and evil PERSONIFIED. As a matter of fact, Gov. Northam should be investigated for how many abortions and infanticides he has committed, but we know, Alas, that that will never happen. A drug addict can remain in his prison until death, wrestling with his addiction. (I’ve known a couple of them; One won his battle and the other lost). There are moral problems with drug use, of course. But the matter of compulsion is a factor to consider. It is only with the matter of… Read more »

Hitler raised up an army in just a few years with “Hitler Youth.” It seems the colleges have used the recent years to raise up a revolutionary army of “Lenin Youth.”
