Florida’s Republican Governor Rick Scott signed “Infants Born Alive” legislation on Wednesday to protect babies that survive abortions, saying the bill protects “the most vulnerable.”
“As a father and grandfather, there is nothing more precious or special than welcoming a new child into this world and by signing this bill, we are protecting the most vulnerable among us and affirming their rights as individuals,” Scott said in a statement.
This is a step in the right direction. My philosophy is a little further along than Governor Scott’s bill, but at least they are moving to prevent atrocities like Gosnell happening.
Now we just need to push for a heartbeat being the signature of life. The reason I believe this, aside from my religious beliefs, is that once a heart stops, you are declared dead, so the opposite would be if a heart starts, you are alive. That is the ultimate direction I want to see for America.
