Planned Parenthood Supports Infanticide

I've used the term "infanticide" to describe what Planned Parenthood, so it was no surprise to have recently seen this exchange before the Florida Legislature's House Criminal Justice Subcommittee:
Chairman Boyd: “So, um, it is just really hard for me to even ask you this question because I’m almost in disbelief. 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?”
Miss Snow (PP): “Um, well, we believe that any decision is made should be left up to the woman, her family, and the physician.”
Chairman Davis: “I believe you were in the room when I asked Rep. Pigman what happens in a situation where a baby is alive, breathing on a table, moving. What do your physicians do at that point?”
Miss Snow: “Um, I do not have that information. I am not a physician, I am not an abortion provider. So I do not have that information.”
Chairman Davis: “I understand that you are not a physician, but you represent physicians who do perform this activity. And can you tell me what happens when a baby is alive on a table at that point? What do they do with the baby that is struggling to live?”
Miss Snow: “I don’t know and as I referenced earlier, we don’t know how prevalent this situation even is.”
Chariman Davis: “I don’t know how else I can get an answer Mr. Chairman.”
Rep 3: “Along the same lines 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?”
Miss Snow: “That decision should be between the patient and the health care provider.”

Rep 3: “I think that at that point the patient would be the child struggling on the table, wouldn’t you agree?”
Miss Snow: “Uh, that’s a very good question. I really don’t know how to answer that…um…I would be glad to have some more conversations with you about this.”
Rep 4: “What objection could you possibly have to obligate a doctor to transport a child born alive to a hospital where it seems to me they would be most likely to be able to survive?”

Miss Snow: “What about those, and I’m just speaking out here, what about those situations where it is in a rural health care setting, the hospital is 45 minutes or an hour away, that’s the closest trauma center or emergency room. You know there’s just some logistical issues involved that we have some concerns about.”
I think we have a pretty good idea what would happen.
