Abortion reports from just five states reveal that over 100 babies were born alive following abortion attempts in recent years. Since the 1973 Roe v. Wade decision legalizing abortion throughout the US, stories about the so-called “dreaded complication” — a term abortionists have used to describe babies surviving abortions — have surfaced.
Though many abortion advocates have denied that infants survive abortion, reporting agencies have already disclosed information proving that it still occurs, and just this month, Congresswoman Tulsi Gabbard (D-Hawaii) introduced legislation in the U.S. House of Representatives aimed at protecting abortion survivors by ensuring they receive care after birth instead of medical neglect.
For decades, those committing abortion have either actively killed abortion survivors or left them to die without care. And yet, this practice of infanticide should not come as a shock when it has been endorsed by eugenically-minded abortion supporters. As Live Action News previously reported, eugenicist Garrett Hardin, a founding member of NARAL, stated, “If abortion did not solve the planning problem there was always infanticide to fall back on….”
Looking at the data, it is clear that Hardin’s words echo still today. Despite only a handful of states requiring abortionists to report infants who survive abortion, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) data reviewed by the Charlotte Lozier Institute found that “nationwide, between 2003 and 2014 at least 143 babies died after being born alive during botched abortions, though the CDC also states this could be an underestimation.”
Below are a handful of examples:
Thirty-seven reports involving a “fetus or embryo delivered alive after an abortion” have been submitted to Arizona’s health department, along with the physician’s statement documenting the measures taken to preserve the life of the preborn child since 2017: (15 in 2019, 12 in 2018, and 10 in 2017).
Although there have not been any reports of “evidence of life” following abortions in Michigan in recent years (2019, 2018, 2017, 2016), from 2008 to 2015 the state reported that 12 babies were known to have survived abortions: one in 2015, two in 2013, one in 2012, five in 2011, one in 2010, one in 2009, and one in 2008.
