Abortion survivor left alone for hours to die in Argentina hospital

In a horrifying report out of Argentina, nurses are revealing that a baby was born alive after an attempted abortion. The baby lived for hours — one nurse says as many as ten hours — but was left to die alone. Osvaldo A. Boldean writes that this inhumane incident so affected the people who worked at Delicia Concepción Masvernat Hospital that “[s]even doctors… hurried over the last few days to formalize in writing their conscientious objection to the practice of abortions.”

The baby was a boy, and he was laid down on a “flat” once the doctors and nurses saw he was alive. They reportedly assumed he would die quickly on his own, as he was relatively young. The mother had been approximately five months pregnant when she sought the abortion (allegedly as a result of rape), but the child was given no help from the Neonatology unit or any other medical professional at the hospital.

This situation in Argentina is, tragically, not unique. Babies who would be treated and prized if they were wanted preemies are often left to die alone if an abortion attempt on them fails. Nurse Jill Stanek saw this happen at Christ Hospital in Illinois. She testified, “It is not uncommon for a live aborted baby to linger for an hour or two or even longer. At Christ Hospital one of these babies lived for almost an entire eight-hour shift.” Watch Jill tell her story here:

Jill would do what she could for these babies, sometimes rocking them, wrapped in a blanket, until they died. Her experience led her to fight for the Born Alive Infants Protection Act at the U.S. federal level. With not all states having a similar law, however, horrific deaths can and do still happen to babies who survive abortion attempts across the United States.

Kermit Gosnell killed abortion survivors in Pennsylvania, slicing the backs of their necks and snipping their spinal cords. Texas abortionist Douglas Karpen‘s employees revealed that they saw him killing surviving babies in a variety of gruesome ways — including “twist[ing] heads off — and often with blood covering the floor.

An Argentinian doctor involved in the situation with the little boy born alive at around 20 weeks explained that abortion makes everything difficult: “[I]t is very complicated and difficult and it really leaves us all wrong. Here, in the daily, we are fighting for life.” And yet, despite the doctors’ motivation to fight for life, abortion requires them to violate life and take it forcefully.
