A pro-life leader on a tour of college campuses was advised by a pro-abortion student that a baby who survives an abortion is not really a baby because he or she was not meant to survive.
Kristan Hawkins, who leads Students for Life of America, was speaking to an audience at Boston College when a student asked her about providing medical care for children apprehended at the U.S.-Mexico border.
“Do you believe that a baby who is born alive during an abortion at Planned Parenthood should get care?” Hawkins asked the student.
“No,” the student replies.
“So do you think it’s a baby?” Hawkins pressed.
“No,” the student replies again.
“Why?” the pro-lifer asks.
“Because they’re performing an abortion,” the student responds. “So, for that, they’ve already determined that it’s not a baby.”
Responding to the incident, Tami Fitzgerald of the North Carolina Family Values Coalition says the view that a baby that survives an abortion is not really a baby sounds like a philosophy in which truth is subjective.
“Whatever your truth is, is actually true, which we all know is not true,” she tells OneNewsNow.
This is the second year of the "Lies Feminists Tell" speaking tour in which Students for Life visits college campuses to expose the truth about abortion.
Boston College, home to approximately 15,000 students, is a private Roman Catholic university.
