earlier this week it was reported than a Columbian female police officer, Luisa Fernanda Urrea, responding to a call about an abandoned child did something extraordinary. So did the media by the way in concealing from headlines that the officer was from another country; an opportunistic PR effort at a time when US police are facing criticism over racially biased and heavy-handed policing practices. but the real shocker was how cert5ain groups reacted to this story.

Urrea, a new mother realized that the child was starving and suffering hypothermia. Her judgment as an officer and as a mother led her to a conclusion that the child faced imminent death and might not survive long enough for the paramedics to arrive. Urrea made the decision to breastfeed the child until help arrived, utilizing both the breast milk and her own body heat to save the child.

Interesting that the reaction from many on the right who call themselves pro-life was in criticizing the officer. On one talk show, which regularly champions the anti-choice movement, the actions by Urrea were deemed as inappropriate. Either that or they simply confused this story with a Trump speech and were opposed to saving the live of  non-American
