(Natural News) A new report by the Minnesota Department of Health has uncovered three separate cases in 2018 in which newborn babies were left to die on the delivery table after surviving botched abortions.
At the same time that Democrats in Congress are voting to block federal legislation to require that basic medical care be given to babies who survive abortions gone awry, the horrific details of what happens to these innocent little ones as a result continue to surface.
Data both from Minnesota and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) shows that babies often survive the abortion procedure, but that existing laws in many state are inadequate to protect them. This is why the state of Georgia, much to the chagrin of Hollywood, recently passed a “heartbeat” bill.
Minnesota also passed its own Born Alive Infants Protection Act back in 2015, which recognizes infants who survive abortions as human persons, meaning they can’t legally be left to die and must be given reasonable medical care. But this latest data suggests that abortionists aren’t following the law as intended.
Since Minnesota’s version of a heartbeat bill came into effect, the state has received reports of 11 babies that have survived abortions, including five in 2016, three in 2017, and the three previously mentioned in 2018.
According to the report:
- One of the babies who survived the abortion procedure was given an APGAR (Appearance, Pulse, Grimace, Activity, and Respiration) score of 1 at both 1 and 5 minutes. There were reportedly “anomalies incompatible with life,” which means that no attempts were made to save the child, which later died.
- Another of the babies was given “comfort care measures,” but did not survive despite these interventions.
- And in the last case, a born-alive infant who survived abortion was said to be previable, but no measures were taken to preserve the child’s life, which resulted in later death.
It’s these types of cases that Democrats have indicated they would prefer to see all end the same way: with the baby being allowed to die. This is why they’re fighting tooth and nail to stop heartbeat laws, claiming that protecting newborn life somehow violates women’s “reproductive rights.”
Hundreds of babies have survived botched abortions over the years, and Democrats just want to see them all dead
Keep in mind as well that these 11 cases reported in Minnesota are just a few of the hundreds that have occurred all throughout the United States. Between the years of 2003 and 2014, the CDC says that some 154 babies were born alive following botched abortions – and these are just the cases that got reported.
The American Center for Law and Justice estimates that the true number is more like 362 babies, based on data the group collected between 2001 and 2010.
In Canada, that number is far higher, as the Canadian Institute of Health Information says that some 766 cases of babies surviving attempted abortions were reported over just a five-year period. And in Western Australia, at least 27 similar cases were reported between 1999 and 2016, according to the state’s health minister.
There are currently 18 American states that have no laws to protect babies who survive botched abortions from receiving proper care – and leftists want to keep it this way. Two states, New York and Illinois, actually repealed the laws they did have on the books to protect newborn babies who survive botched abortions.
“Those babies were citizens of the U.S., and entitled to all the Constitutional protections we all have,” wrote one commenter at The Gateway Pundit.
“If the state of Minnesota is too corrupt to prosecute, the federal government should indict.”
