Florida Law Protects Infants that Obama Would NOT

Florida is now added to the list of states that require protection of the life of any baby who survives attempted murder by an abortionist.  Barack Obama was diligent while in the Illinois legislature to ensure that abortionists in that state are permitted to discard live babies in the trash (see bottom).

Florida Gov. Rick Scott has signed into law HB 1129 (“Infants Born Alive"), the only one of four pro-life bills that passed both chambers of the Florida Legislature during the 2013 session.

The new law, which passed by unanimous vote in both the House and the Senate, provides that any infant who survives an abortion attempt is entitled to the same civil rights and privileges, and the same standard of medical care, as one who is born alive in the course of a regular delivery.

Senate Majority Leader Lizbeth Benaquisto, R-Fort Myers, thanked Scott for signing the bill, and said it was necessary “in light of events around the country,” a clear allusion to Philadelphia abortionist Kermit Gosnell, who was convicted last month of murdering several infants born alive in the course of his medical practice.

From "Gov. Scott signs abortion law" by Rochelle Koff, Miami Herald/Times Tallahassee Bureau 6/5/13

[The law] states that an infant born alive “during or immediately after attempted abortion is entitled to the same rights, powers, and privileges as any other child born alive in course of natural birth” and ensures an infant is “transported to a hospital.”

A violation of the law is a first-degree misdemeanor punishable by a year in jail, a $1,000 fine or both. Healthcare practitioners, as well as employees of hospitals, physicians’ offices and abortion clinics, must report all known violations to the Department of Health.

Florida becomes the 29th state to enact similar legislation, according to the Alan Guttmacher Institute, a research and advocacy group that supports women’s access to abortions and collects abortion data.
