Abortion barbarism on the rise
Late term abortions are on the increase and so are the horror stories. Queensland Health figures published by the Herald Sun reveal “19 babies were aborted at 20 weeks or more in 2007, but rather than dying at birth as intended, the newborns were able to breathe unaided”.
The newspaper reported that some babies, as advanced as 26 weeks, “were aborted using drugs to induce labour. Once born, no medical help was offered and they died soon afterwards”.
The Herald Sun quoted Former Queensland Health obstetrician Dr Caroline de Costa, now a professor at James Cook University in Cairns, who said it was extremely distressing for parents and medical staff when terminations went wrong .
“If babies are born alive after this they are likely to die within a few minutes, although it can take up to half an hour,” the newspoaper reported her to have said.
The Herald Sun reported that Dr de Costa said, “We can only keep them wrapped up warm. It is up to the parents whether they want to see the child.”
