Extreme pro-abortion politicians and the abortion industry are going beyond legalizing abortion until birth. They’re writing infanticide, that is killing an infant after delivery, into laws in both Maryland and Colorado. They protect the mother and her medical team from prosecution if they “refrain from acting” when babies survive late-term abortions. In other words, the unwanted newborn could legally be left to die in a cold soiled linen closet. The Maryland law prevented “any form of investigation or penalty” if those involved allow the baby to die. This would’ve legalized infanticide on babies up to four weeks old! An outcry in liberal Maryland moved the bill’s author to cancel the hearing. Tragically, Colorado and Maryland aren’t the only states legalizing such barbaric and cruel practices.
