She does NOT agree that a child born alive should always get medical care needed for survival.
Testifying before a Senate hearing Tuesday, Dr. Diana Greene Foster, said she does not agree that a child born alive during an abortion should receive medical care for survival.
If the doctors whisk the baby away to attempt life-saving medical treatment, “you’ve taken away a woman’s chance to hold her child and say goodbye. It denies the family the right to say that they don’t think care is going to help in this case and they want to be able to hold their child.”
Being discussed at the hearing was the Pain Capable Unborn Child Protection Act, introduced by Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.), which would ban abortion past 20 weeks of pregnancy; and the Born Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act, introduced by Sen. Jeff Flake (R-Ariz.), which would require health care practitioners to provide medical treatment to a child born alive in their presence after an abortion attempt.
Foster is an associate professor of obstetrics and gynecology and director of research for the Advancing New Standards in Reproductive Health at the University of California San Francisco.
