Dr. William Lile, the ProLifeDoc, is board certified in obstetrics and gynecology, and former OB/GYN Department Chair at Sacred Heart Hospital. He is licensed to practice medicine in both Florida and Alabama. He has served as an instructor with both The University of Florida and Florida State Medical School OB/GYN residency programs. In 1999 he took over a practice that was also the largest provider of abortion services in Pensacola. All abortion services and abortion referrals were stopped on day 1. The abortionist retired and left the country. The abortion equipment is now used to demonstrate the brutality of abortions performed in all 3 trimesters. The tools of modern obstetrics are used to demonstrate the life and personhood of the unborn. Babies in the womb are viewed as patients, abortion is never the right ‘choice’, and forgiveness is available to ALL through the blood of Jesus Christ.
Dr. Lile’s mission is to use the visual technology of modern obstetrics to reveal the personhood of pre-born babies threatened by abortion.
A baby has the same value whether within the womb or outside the womb. For example, Delayed Interval Delivery. In a typical case, a mother, pregnant with twins presents to the hospital in active, pre-term labor in the second trimester. Before the labor can be stopped, she delivers the first twin. That twin is immediately taken to the Neonatal Intensive Care Nursery (NICU) and is supported by the most modern medical technology. The baby has all of the rights and protections that any one of us would have if we were admitted to an Intensive Care Unit. If the labor can be stopped, and the bag of water around the second twin remains intact, the mother is counseled. As long as the mother and second twin are both doing well, we can allow the second twin to remain in the better NICU, her womb, for days or even weeks.
One identical twin can be born in June, and the second twin born in August. However, if the mother were to ‘Choose’, many States would allow the mother to terminate the remaining twin.
How can identical twins, conceived from one egg and one sperm, which then divides before day 13 have different rights and protections?
Our geographic location does not grant us, nor deny us our rights. Is it logical that a twin in the NICU is protected, yet the identical twin still in the womb is vulnerable to abortion? Of course it is not logical.
It is wrong and we must continue to fight for all life, both inside and outside the womb.
The union of a sperm and an egg, create a new life, genetically unique from either the mother or the father. The blood of the baby does not circulate with the blood of the mother, and is often even of a different blood type. The mother is the life support system for the baby.
Life threatening conditions such as severe anemia in the baby are treated by transfusing donated blood into the umbilical cord of the baby as early as 18 weeks gestation. Surgeries are now being performed on the babies while still in the womb. The babies are patients and deserve legal protection. Prior to surgery being performed on the pre-born, Informed Consent is obtained from the mother. Risks, BENEFITS, indications and alternatives are reviewed. The mother is exposed to risks such as bleeding and infection, but the only BENEFITS are for the pre-born baby. Therefore, the Informed Consent applies to BOTH mother and the pre-born child.
The American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists (ACOG) defines Informed Consent in Committee Opinion Number 439 as “…the principle of respect for persons.” Per ACOG; “Seeking informed consent expresses respect for the patient as a person; it particularly respects a patient’s moral right to bodily integrity,” The intentional taking of the life of the pre-born thus violates “the patient’s moral right to bodily integrity.”
The pre-born are patients and deserve all of the rights and protection afforded to children and adults.
