Senate hears from abortion survivor, former abortionist
Yesterday, the Senate Judiciary Committee heard testimony on why the law should protect babies born alive after an abortion, and why we should at the very least ban abortions after the age at which babies can feel pain.
Witnesses included an abortion survivor and a physician who did abortions before making the connection between "fetus" and baby. I was privileged to accompany Dr. Kathi Aultman to the hearing, where she noted, "We have moved further away
from the idea that life is precious and closer to the utilitarian attitudes that
ended so many lives during the last century."
Witnesses for the Republican majority included:
Dr. Kathi A. Aultman
Orange Park , FL
Ms. Melissa Ohden
Founder, The Abortion Survivors Network
Gladstone , MO
Dr. Colleen A. Malloy
Assistant Professor, Pediatrics-Neonatology
Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine
