In the last 12 years, 108 babies have been born alive after attempted abortions in five U.S. states alone.
The babies were born in Arizona, Florida, Michigan, Minnesota and Texas, Live Action reported, citing state records. Only a small minority of states reports when babies are born alive after an abortion, Live Action Director of External Affairs Alison Centofante told The Christian Post in an email.
“There are only a handful of states (eight as far as we know) that require reporting for live births after abortions,” she wrote. “Some states that do require reporting had reported zero, an example of that would be Oklahoma.”
Texas statistics suggest that about two babies in 100,000 survive abortion. But when people hear about these cases, it can impact how people view unborn babies, she noted.
“Babies born alive after botched abortions illuminates the humanity of every preborn child — a humanity that is present at the moment of conception. Beating hearts, pumping lungs, tiny fingers and toes. Hearing stories of babies born alive after botched abortions should wake people from their slumber of apathy,” said Centofante.
