Baby Boy Lives 2 Days After Botched Abortion

The U.K. Telegraph reported today that a 22-week old Italian baby boy died after being abandoned after a failed abortion. This wasn't any back-alley abortion--the child was left by hospital doctors to die alone, but lived for almost two days. From the Telegraph:

He was discovered alive the following day – some 20 hours after the operation – by Father Antonio Martello, the hospital chaplain, who had gone to pray beside his body.

He found that the baby, wrapped in a sheet with his umbilical cord still attached, was moving and breathing.

The priest raised the alarm and doctors immediately arranged for the infant to be taken to a specialist neonatal unit at a neighbouring hospital where he died on Monday morning.

Italian police are investigating the case for "homicide" because infanticide is illegal in Italy.

The law means that doctors have had an obligation to try to preserve the life of the child once he had survived the abortion.

The Italian government is also considering an inquiry into the conduct of the hospital staff.

The Telegraph reports that this is not the first instance of a child born alive during an abortion in Italy, that a similar event happened three years ago. But I'd bet that these are just two incidents of many that go unreported.

The other involved a baby in Florence who weighed just 17oz when he was aborted at 22 weeks because of a suspected genetic disorder but lived for three days.

In both cases, the children were aborted because prenatal tests had revealed the possibility of birth defects. As if ending the life of a helpless child in the womb wasn't enough, the fact some doctors might leave children to die is truly terrifying. The pro-abortion side rails that Born Alive Infant protection laws serve no purpose but to threaten Roe v. Wade, but then there are stories like this one.

How can this be justified, pro-aborts?

Wise Leadership, Canadian Style

obama and canadian prime minister

Dear President Obama,

Please take a lesson from your Canadian counterpart, Prime Minister Stephen Harper, on how to promote women's health across the globe in a manner that doesn't compromise the consciences of the majority of your nation's citizens.


A lot of American citizens

The G8 is launching a campaign in the coming months aimed at improving the health of mothers and their children in the world's poorer nations through a variety of methods. One of the methods on the table for the G8 is (unfortunately) to provide abortion funding in poorer nations. Other methods include training health-care workers, treating and preventing diseases such as malaria and pneumonia, screening and treating sexually transmitted diseases, immunization, clean water, sanitation and family planning. Canada has decided that they will not be contributing to any G8 abortion initiatives. The United States however, in keeping with President Obama's decision to repeal the Mexico City Policy, sees no problem in providing abortion services with Federal money in the G8 plan.

Prime Minister Harper, realizing that only a limited amount of taxpayer funds are available from his nation to help the G8 initiative, has decided that such funds should be used for programs that aren't considered to be the killing of human life by a very large portion of Canadian taxpayers (75% in a recent poll) but rather directed to effective, NON-DIVISIVE, health initiatives like disease prevention, disease treatment, and sanitation. It seems quite logical that if expectant mothers can depend on better water and more efficient disease prevention they might also be more capable to raise healthy children instead of having to see abortion as the only viable option.

A couple of quotes from Prime Minister Harper:

    "We want to make sure our funds are used to save the lives of women and children and are used on the many, many things that are available to us that frankly do not divide the Canadian population."


    "Frankly there is not enough money to do all the things we want to do, even in those areas. We will concentrate our efforts on areas where Canadians are united and want to see progress."

Well said Prime Minister. Thanks for incorporating some true wisdom into your policy making. The American people are kind of jealous of our Canadian neighbors in this respect.

SBA List Endorses Carly Fiorina

c. fiorina

Yesterday, the SBA List Candidate Fund endorsed Carly Fiorina for Senate. Carly is challenging Sen. Barbara Boxer, who for the past 18 years has been one of the most ardently pro-abortion Senators in history. During the healthcare debate, Sen. Boxer went so far as to compare abortion to Viagra, saying that if the government subsidized medication like that for men, government should also pay for women to abort their children.

SBA List President Marjorie Dannenfelser said, "We’ve been waiting for Carly Fiorina for a long time—in fact, since the day Barbara Boxer was elected to the U.S. Senate."

Yesterday afternoon, Carly responded to SBA List endorsement saying, "I share the Susan B. Anthony List’s commitment to the rights of women and the unborn, and I am honored to have the organization’s endorsement of my campaign for U. S. Senate against Barbara Boxer."

Check back for updates on the campaign!
