Lots of children are murdered after “unsuccessful” abortions

Yes, this happens all the time.  Kermit Gosnell was not an exception, he just got caught.  And even most pro-lifers I know haven’t heard of him because of the successful media blackout on the trial of the most prolific mass murderer in American history.

In theory, the ghouls on the “Christian” Left would protest these murders because they insist that life “really” begins at the child’s first breath*.  You know, because they are such biblical literalists when it comes to Adam and Eve /sarcasm.

But their silence about this shows who their real father is and how they don’t care about infanticide, either.

Evidence: babies born alive after abortion are murdered | Pro Life.

Sometimes babies survive late-term abortion. International treaties and some domestic laws protect the lives of those children in word, but they are ignored in practice. Consequently, many of those children who survive are left alone to suffer and die, while some are even killed outright.

infanticide

Congress passed the Born-Alive Infants Protection Act in 2002. That law is meant to legally protect children born during botched abortions. Yet, according to the Center for Disease Control at least 362 babies between 2001 and 2010 were born alive after botched late-term abortion attempts and died afterwards. All this despite the many medical advancements that continually increase viability for premature babies.

When Florida introduced a similar bill two years ago Planned Parenthood explicitly defended “post-birth abortion” (otherwise known as infanticide) insisting that a doctor’s obligation to help a struggling baby lying on the table is a decision that “should be left up to the woman, her family, and the physician.” The baby gasping for air has no say though, because she can’t speak.

The United States is not the only place where this happens. Cases have been reported in all countries that allow abortion on demand for health reasons. Here are just a few examples:

In January 2014, Norway passed a law banning all abortions after 22 weeks. This happened only after there were several reports of babies’ hearts continuing to beat for 45-90 minutes after the abortion.

In France, children born before 22 weeks or during a botched abortion are not even given a birth certificate. They are recorded as a lifeless child. They keep no record of which children are born alive and which are stillborn.  Sometimes doctors don’t even tell parents that their child is alive.

The Netherlands, in cases of serious malformation, legally allows abortion after 24 weeks, and sometimes even infanticide.

These phenomena are so common that the World Health Organization has made it an official cause of death (termed, “Termination of a pregnancy, newborn”)

*From the “Christian” Left: “According to the bible, a fetus is not a living person with a soul until after drawing its first breath.”

  1. I often point out that the term “botched abortion” refers to a baby born alive precisely because the purpose of an abortion isn’t to make the woman un-pregnant, but to kill the child. If they make the woman un-pregnant, and the baby survives, they consider the abortion attempt unsuccessful. Thus, abortion is NOT just rescinding consent to pregnancy or taking a baby out of the mother like the pro-aborts try to pretend. The clear goal of an abortion is to murder the child in the womb and then remove his dead body. There is never any justification for that. There might be justification for removing the child from the mother for the sake of saving her life (even if that leads to his death), but there can be no justification for purposely killing him first.
