“I will use treatment to help the sick according to my ability and judgment, but never with a view to injury and wrong-doing. Neither will I administer a poison to anybody when asked to do so, nor will I suggest such a course. Similarly, I will not give to a woman a pessary to cause abortion.
Hippocratic Oath, 245 AD
Foundational text for medical ethics in Western Civilization
Last week, we informed you of the horror of babies born alive after a botched abortion being refused medical care and even left in closets to die by professionals who swore to do no harm. Sadly, the Hippocratic Oath has been replaced with a smug hypocrisy from abortionists. This atrocious disregard for historical professional standards that value life continues to shock society with gross national news headlines. Recently, 2,246 fetal remains were discovered at the house of a deceased Indiana doctor. Where is the moral outrage from the mainstream culture? A more demanding question is this – where is your moral outrage?
It seems that the collective conscience of Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) and much of her party at the federal level, has drifted towards callousness. The rights of babies to receive medical care that have survived outside the womb after a failed abortion has been denied a committee hearing 81 times this year alone. I strongly encourage you to read last week’s email for the latest update on the Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act (H.R. 962). Congressman Chris Smith (R) is the only congressman from New Jersey that has co-sponsored this federal bill.
Therefore, since our elected Congressmen and women have evaded their moral responsibility in Washington D.C., it is imperative that our state legislature in Trenton must act! You can help!
The Born Alive Protection Act (NJ A5287/S3905) was introduced on May 13, 2019 and currently has 18 co-sponsors in the Assembly and 3 co-sponsors in the state Senate. We have met with over thirty state legislators in recent weeks advocating for the passage of this bill.
Family Policy Alliance of NJ, as part of the leadership team of a statewide pro-life coalition, is in search of a child who was born in NJ between the 20-24-week mark of gestation. It is our hope to find families who will share their story about the beauty of life at the “preemie” yet viable stage of human development. A personal story from a family directly impacted by a premature birth will help to end the 1,240 yearly late term abortions in NJ. Do you know of a family who will be willing to share their experience? There is a special informational meeting scheduled for interested families on Thursday, Oct 24 at 7:30pm in Warren, NJ. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
We cannot rest from our efforts to guarantee a new-born child born after a failed abortion receives the same standard of medical care and a birth certificate recognizing their precious life just like a premature baby born in our state!
