The Abortion Lobby and its pals over at Planned Parenthood continue to spread propaganda.
They’ve gone so far as to paint abortion as a “healthcare” necessity.
And now, this shocking abortion statistic is being routinely left out of reports all in a last ditch effort to “normalize” abortion.
It’s terribly sad but true – instances of babies surviving failed abortion attempts are likely far more widespread than reported.
Shockingly, there are no federal abortion reporting requirements, leaving only a handful of states to document cases of abortion survivors.
Live Action News uncovered 220 such cases reported from 1999-2023 in just eight states, with the actual number likely higher due to inconsistent reporting.
“Only eight states have publicly reported or responded to requests for statistics on children marked for abortion who were born alive during abortion procedures,” noted the Charlotte Lozier Institute (CLI).
This information gap poses a severe challenge to understanding the true extent of this crisis.
In the documented cases, between 2020 and 2023, nearly 70 incidents of babies born alive after abortion were reported in just four states (Arizona, Florida, Minnesota, and Texas).
Additionally, over 90 incidents were reported between 2015 and 2019 in five states.
The remaining 60 cases between 1999 and 2014 came from Michigan, which has maintained records spanning several years.
The lack of consistent reporting paints an incomplete picture, leaving the American public unaware of the magnitude of the issue.
CLI emphasized that only a fraction of states provide insight into abortion survivor cases, exacerbating the challenge of addressing this hidden crisis.
In Arizona, reports have been mandated since 2017, revealing 55 cases of infants born alive during abortions between 2017 and 2021.
This data underscores the urgency of legislative measures ensuring the preservation of life for these infants.
However, challenges persist, as highlighted, surprisingly, by abortionist DeShawn Taylor in a Center for Medical Progress (CMP) investigation.
Taylor lamented the requirement to transport infants showing signs of life after abortion.
Florida’s online reports from the Agency for Healthcare Administration showed at least 60 incidents of born-alive infants following attempted abortions since 2013.
Shockingly, the number doubled in recent years, with 16 cases reported in 2022 and 10 cases recorded in 2023.
Michigan reported 61 incidents of “Induced Abortions by Evidence of Life” dating back to 1999, with a notable decrease in cases from 2000 to 2015.
This intriguing trend warrants further exploration to understand the factors influencing abortion survivor reports.
Minnesota enacted the “Born Alive Infant Protection Act” in 2015, requiring abortion providers to disclose whether an abortion resulted in a born-alive infant.
The state reported a total of 21 born-alive infants between 2015 and 2021, emphasizing the need for legislative safeguards.
Texas documented 20 born-alive incidents between 2013 and 2023, with legislative improvements in 2019 strengthening protections for abortion survivors.
Texas Attorney General’s Office has announced investigations into these cases, signaling a commitment to accountability.
While some states provide valuable insights, others like Indiana and Arkansas exhibit gaps in reporting, hindering a comprehensive understanding of the crisis.
Despite these documented cases, the true extent of babies born alive after failed abortions remains elusive.
Reports from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) estimated 143 such cases between 2003 and 2014, acknowledging the likelihood of undercounting.
The discrepancy between national estimates and state reports raises concerns about unreported cases nationwide.
Studies from Quebec, Canada, and investigations into abortion survivors’ treatment emphasize the gravity of the situation.
Between 1989 and 2021, Quebec recorded a shocking 11.2% of abortions leading to live births, with heightened risks between 20 and 24 weeks.
The revelation of babies surviving failed abortions brings to light a silent crisis plaguing the nation.
Beyond the reported cases, countless more infants may have faced uncertain fates without comprehensive reporting requirements.
Historical cases, including the harrowing story of Ana Rosa Rodriguez and the notorious practices of abortionist Kermit Gosnell, illustrate the severity of the issue.
Allegations of inadequate medical assistance for abortion survivors, experiments conducted on living infants, and testimony from former abortion facility employees further underscore the need for urgent action.
As pro-life Americans grapple with the shocking reality of babies born alive after failed abortions, calls for stringent reporting requirements, legislative safeguards, and public awareness become imperative.
The sanctity of life demands unwavering commitment and advocacy to ensure that every infant, regardless of the circumstances of their birth, receives the care and protection they deserve.
The hidden crisis must be unveiled, and the nation must unite in safeguarding the most vulnerable among us.
