“The editorial titled, ‘False facts threaten women’s health’ fails to explain how women’s health is in any way threatened by a law which makes it a crime to let a baby who survives an abortion be denied medical care and be allowed to die.

“The editorial stated ‘It’s already a crime to kill babies.’ But if such laws threaten women’s health, are they suggesting existing laws threaten women’s health also?

“Those who believe the expert who said ‘No one is executing babies, period. That’s not happening’ should watch the movie ‘Gosnell, The Trial of America’s Biggest Serial Killer’, based on court records of abortionist Dr. Kermit Gosnell’s trial. He was convicted of murdering three babies born alive after botched abortions. It would be nice if no one was executing babies, but the facts, the true facts, the facts based upon court documents, are otherwise.

“Trump’s statement was referencing what Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam said: ‘I can tell you exactly what happens: If a mother is in labor ... the infant would be delivered. The infant would be kept comfortable. The infant would be resuscitated if that’s what the mother and the family desired, and then a discussion would ensue between the physicians and mother.’ It goes without saying that the governor of Virginia is a Democrat; he is also a doctor, a pediatric neurologist.

“Laws are enacted in response to need. Babies born alive after botched abortions are denied medical care and left to die. It needs to stop now.”
