Democrats Lie

They justify their refusal to pass the Born-Alive Infants Protection Act by saying it’s a non-existent problem. That’s not true.

Back in the 1980s, Dr. Rocco Pascucci was a first-year pediatric resident at a teaching hospital in Monmouth County, New Jersey.

One day, while he was working in the intensive care nursery, a cleaning woman came to him with a message he has never forgotten.

“She told me there was a baby crying on the garbage can in the little treatment room,” he recalled.

He went into the four-by-four room where medications were kept and found a tiny baby wrapped in a hospital blanket. The baby had been left on top of a big metal garbage can, and he was crying.

Not stopping to wonder why the child had been abandoned there, Dr. Pascucci put the baby in a warmer, put him on oxygen, and inserted a line into his umbilical artery, which is how premature babies receive nutrition and how health-care workers check blood gases. The care the infant received was standard for any premature baby.

After the baby was stabilized, “a high-risk OB/GYN came in and yelled at me,” Dr. Pascucci said. “He told me I had just saved an abortion. He got into a huff and walked out.”

Nurses told Dr. Pascucci it was standard procedure to leave these babies on the garbage can until they died. It was his impression that this was not a rare occurrence.

The cleaning lady knew it,” he said. “The nurses knew it.”

Because of the care he received that little boy suffered from no long-term health problems and was placed with an adoptive family.

On Tuesday, the U.S. Senate again voted down the Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Act that would have required life-saving care for any baby who survives an abortion.

My latest update from the campaign trail

ABORTION BERNIE: In 1987, Bernie Sanders said, “If we expanded Medicaid [to] everybody. Give everybody a Medicaid card—we would be spending such an astronomical sum of money that, you know, we would bankrupt the nation.”

This is still true, but now he has introduced legislation to actually do it.
