Contact: Jessica Cahill, 202-225-4576
WASHINGTON, Sept. 22, 2016 /Christian Newswire/ -- Subcommittee Chairman Trent Franks released the following statement in advance of the Constitution Subcommittee Hearing set for Friday, September 23:
"The Born Alive Abortion Survivor Protection Act protects little children who have been born alive. No one can obscure the humanity and the personhood of these little born alive babies.
"The abortion industry labored all these decades to convince the world that unborn children and born children should be completely separated in our minds, that while born children are persons worthy of protection, unborn children are not persons and are not worthy of protection.
"Now opponents of this bill are trying to join born children and unborn children back together again and convince all of us to condemn them both as inhuman and not worthy of protection after all. To anyone who has not invincibly hardened their heart and soul, an honest consideration of this absurd inconsistency is profoundly enlightening."
