A stunning exchange

During a recent event sponsored by Boston College's Pro-Life Club, a female student stood in front of a microphone and said a baby born alive during a botched abortion should not receive medical care — and, in fact, isn't a baby at all, LifeNews said.

Video of the exchange shows Students for Life of America President Kristan Hawkins asking the student if she believes that babies dying in immigration centers at the U.S.-Mexico border should be given medical treatment.

"Yes," the student answered.

With that Hawkins asked a second question: "Do you believe that a baby who's born alive during an abortion at Planned Parenthood should get care?"

"No," the student replied.

Hawkins attempted to get a fuller explanation from the student, asking her if the U.S. should pay for the heath care of baby who's dying in her mother's arms when the mom crosses the border — and, again, the student said "yes."

Once again, Hawkins presented the abortion scenario, asking the student if an abortion doctor should provide health care to a baby born alive during a botched abortion — and, again, the student said "no."

"Why?" Hawkins asked.

'They've already determined that it's not a baby'

"Because they're performing an abortion," the student responded. "So ... they've already determined that it's not a baby." She also added a mostly inaudible phrase with the word "science" in it.

Things grew more testy in the room at that point, and the student said such a botched abortion is rare — which Hawkins agreed with.

And then she asked the question again: "So, do you think it's a baby?"

"No," the student replied.
