A Planned Parenthood representative shocked Florida House members when she testified at a committee hearing that she believes it’s OK to end a baby’s life if it survives a botched abortion.

Alisa Laport Snow of the Florida Alliance of Planned Parenthood Affiliates said the decision to allow an infant to live or die following an abortion gone awry should be left to the mother and her abortionist, The Weekly Standard reported.

“So, um, it is just really hard for me to even ask you this question because I’m almost in disbelief,” Rep. Jim Boyd said. “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?”

“We believe that any decision that’s made should be left up to the woman, her family and the physician,” Snow said.

Rep. Jose Oliva pressed Snow further when she repeated that the decision “should be between the patient and the health care provider,” asking: “I think that at that point, the patient would be the child struggling on the table. Wouldn’t you agree?”

“That’s a very good question. I really don’t know how to answer that,” Snow said. “I would be glad to have some more conversations with you about this.”

Dr. Kermit Gosnel is currently on trial in a Philadelphia courtroom for murder — for killing babies born alive after late-term abortions.
