(LifeNews) The Florida affiliate of the Planned Parenthood abortion business has released a new statement defending the remarks its lobbyist made that drew national condemnation for essentially endorsing infanticide.

The pro-life bill, HB 1129, ultimately cleared the House Criminal justice Subcommittee. The bill would require that medical care be given to newborns, likely to be premature, who survive botched abortions. The care would be given at a hospital and not at the abortion clinic.

Planned Parenthood has been condemned for what many see as promoting infanticide by opposing a bill in the state legislature that would provide medical care and legal protection for babies who are born alive after failed abortions. According to its lobbyist, “any decision that’s made should be left up to the woman, her family, and the physician.”
