How About Enforcing the Born-Alive Infant Protection Act?
by Kathryn Jean Lopez, National Review Online

Representative Trent Franks raised the issue of Kermit Gosnell with Attorney General Eric Holder today, asking if the Born-Alive Infant Protection Act has ever been enforced. The attorney general of the United States, the week of Gosnellís conviction, has no idea.

From the exchange:

FRANKS: In, 2002, Congress enacted the Born-Alive Infant Protection Act that provides that all federal protections ó including from your office, sir ó for persons apply to every infant born alive. So will you enforce the infant ó the Born-Alive Infant Protection Act as attorney general and will you consider carefully whatís happening in clinics across the country like happened at the clinic that Kermit Gosnell ran?

HOLDER: Well, like you, I share the many of the concerns that you talked about. iím a father. i have three kids. And I am interestingly married to a woman who is a obstetrician, gynecologist, very accomplished in her field. I have responsibilities as attorney general to enforce all the laws that congress passes.

FRANKS: Have you ever enforced this law even one time?

HOLDER: I donít know ...

FRANKS: Will you get back to us on that? Have you ever enforced the Born-Alive Infant Protection Act even one time.

HOLDER: We can examine that, since the law was passed you said in 2002, how many prosecutions there have been under that law.

REP FRANKS: Thereís been 18,000 opportunities a year since then approximately. so Iím just wondering if youíve even enforced once?

AG HOLDER: I donít know whether there was enforcement during the Bush administration or the Obama administration since the passage of the law in 2002. I just donít know what the statistics are.

Interestingly, questions have been raised about Holderís ties to the abortion industry.

That would be because it is a stupid law that overlaps another crime called murder.

Hmmm, if I were to play the liberal card, the logic would go something like this:

"It's a fetus, we don't know when life begins."

"We performed an abortion in the best interests of the mother, so therefore the life of the child was inconsequential."

Doesn't seem to stop the sh^tstain in his desires for laws legalizing infanticide now does it, vermin?

Twist those two minute olds' heads right off and throw them into the trash. Take that 8 second old and snip that spinal cord. See the squirming 1 minute old? Into the toilet it goes.

Ask Barack Hussein Obama to explain it to you.
Three times in the Illinois legislature he voted against specifically protecting the lives of these aborted, born-alive infants.

You see, committed pro-aborts intend that a woman seeking an abortion should be guaranteed her desired result [i.e., dead baby] regardless of whether the baby survived the procedure.

I asked you, Cardozo.

What's does the "Born Alive Political Posturing Act" criminalize that murder does not?

Its purpose is to ensure that every child born alive -- even those who survive abortion -- regardless of his/her stage of development, enjoy full legal rights.

Do you have writer for these "clever" insults? If you do, you should ask him what the "Placate Jesus Freak Abortion Alarmists Born Alive (In other words a living person) Protection Act" prohibits that every state in the country's murder laws don't?

That was sort of an answer to half of the question. Let's go all the way. How is that different than murder?
