Politicians in Florida are currently debating whether or not to pass the Infants Born Alive Act, which would require that physicians give medical attention to children born alive after a botched abortion.
Since Planned Parenthood has a dog in the abortion fight, they sent along Alisa Laport Snow, a lobbyist representing the Florida Alliance of Planned Parenthood Affiliates, to testify on behalf of the organization. Ms. Snow stated several times that they believe that the decision to end the life of a child born alive
 should be left to the woman, her family, and her physician. 
Legislators in the committee hearing couldn’t seem to believe their ears, because they kept asking her to restate it.
"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.” 
There are not a lot of numbers available for how often this happens, likely because providers that are unscrupulous enough to kill a newborn baby aren’t the kind of people that would report it. It does happen though, as evidenced by Kermit Gosnell, thePennsylvania abortionist
 currently on trial for killing newborns at his “house of horrors” abortion clinic. Does Planned Parenthood support that monster?
The fact that Planned Parenthood would eventheoretically consider ending the life of a breathing, wriggling newborn is disgusting. No matter where you stand on abortion, I’d like to think that we could all agree that killing babies is wrong.
Do you think Planned Parenthood is hurting or helping the pro-choice crowd by opposing the Infants Born Alive Act?

It's a bit sick. That's putting it mildly. I'm kind of in awe.

Not surprised. Planned Oatenthood is disgusting, it was founded by a woman who promoted racial selection and encouraged the abortion of "inferior" human beings.

Wow. Abortion and infanticide are two completely different things. Obviously if the child is born it should be cared for. I am pro choice and support the born alive act.
