Allowing babies born alive to die
By Paul Parisi 4-3-2023
Our founding fathers based our US Constitution and Declaration of Independence on biblical truths.
“We hold these truths to be self evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness”
Let’s look at the God given right to “life”. In Genesis 9:6, God tells Noah “Whoever sheds human blood, by a human his own blood is to be shed; because God made human beings in his own image”.
We are all saddened and appalled by the recent Christian school shooting in Tennessee, where a deranged person brutally murdered 3 young children and 3 adults. I am not surprised that many in the press and in Congress, including President Biden, are blaming the weapon used rather than the evil intent of the murderer. But what if the weapon used to kill is not a rock, a knife or a gun but a doctor not rendering medical care to a baby?
Well that is what is happening right now in Arizona. The medical profession calls this practice of allowing a baby to die as “slow code”. Unfortunately, when a baby is not expected to live very long, no medical intervention is used to save the life of the baby.
The Arizona Legislature just passed SB 1600 that will ensure that a baby born alive receives medically appropriate and reasonable healthcare. 4Tucson is aligned with Center for Arizona Policy in urging Governor Hobbs to sign this bill into law. You can call the Governor’s office at 602 542-4331 or send her an Email.
Governor Hobbs has signaled that she will veto this bill. Her record on life is certainly mixed. She is currently sparing the life of a convicted murderer by not carrying out a court ordered execution, yet has vowed in expletive language to keep abortion legal in the State of Arizona.
God values all human life from conception to natural death; this includes the life of a baby born alive no matter what chance of survival a doctor gives it. Many babies who were never expected to live are alive today. Miracles do happen.
