The controversial Planned Parenthood lobbyist who put the Florida chapter of the nation’s largest abortion business on record supporting infanticide was once a member of the board of directors for a local Catholic Charities branch.
As LifeNews initially reported, Alisa Lapolt Snow defended the practice of allowing babies not killed in an abortion to be allowed to die afterwards. She said the decision on whether to provide such children with medical care is between the mother having the abortion and the abortion practitioner.
Now, a report on the Creative Minority Report blog indicates Snow was once a member of the board of a Catholic group that, ironically, in part helps provide abortion alternatives for women.
Here’s what her bio on her website said:
Alisa is a graduate of the University of Tennessee where she earned a bachelor’s degree in communications/journalism. She was a founding member and secretary of the Sunset Rotary Club of Tallahassee and serves on the board of Catholic Charities of Northwest Florida-Tallahassee. She is a member of the Florida Association of Professional Lobbyists.
Because I don’t take the word of people from Planned Parenthood on anything, I checked the website and she was not listed on their board of directors.
So I called the Catholic Charities office and they told me that Lapolt-Snow did indeed serve on the board until leaving in January. She didn’t explain further.
How horrifying is that? A lobbyist for Planned Parenthood was a board member for a Catholic Charities office. I can’t believe that it’s not clear to everyone that you cannot advocate for the killing of babies and be a Catholic. Just can’t.
Snow was opposing a bill in the state legislature that would provide medical care and legal protection for babies who are born alive after failed abortions.
This is the same legislation President Barack Obama refused to support during his time in the Illinois legislature and it mirrors a national law President George W. Bush signed after nurse Jill Stanek exposed how her Chicago-area hospital left babies to die in utility closets after botched abortions.
During the same hearing, a Florida legislator noted how more than 1,200 babies died following a failed abortion and their whose deaths were reported as “mortality subsequent to an abortion.” As the representative emphasized, those are only the number of reported deaths following botched abortions, and the actual figures could be higher.
