"Aborted" Babies Born Alive

According to this article, in England, "up to 50 babies a year are born alive after botched National Health Service abortions." Babies aborted "after more than 21 weeks and six days of gestation should have their hearts stopped by an injection of potassium chloride before being delivered."

However, sometimes that is not the case. According to Stuart Campbell, former professor of obstetrics and gynaecology at St George’s hospital, “They can be born breathing and crying at 19 weeks’ gestation. I am not anti-abortion, but as far as I am concerned this is sub-standard medicine.”

"'If a baby is born alive following a failed abortion and then dies (because of lack of care), you could potentially be charged with murder,' said Shantala Vadeyar, a consultant obstetrician at South Manchester University Hospitals NHS Trust, who led the study. "

And here is another story on this topic from earlier this year, in which a mother is suing because her now 3-year-old child survived abortion.

To me, the most disturbing thing is that we have now gotten to a point in our world in which a "botched procedure" results in a life saved.
