Danish study: 1 of 6 babies shows signs of life after late-term abortion

CWN - December 20, 2012

A Danish survey has found that as many as one-sixth of babies show some signs of life after late-term abortions.

At Aaarhus University Hospital, of the 70 babies destroyed by late-term abortions during the term of the study, 11 showed some signs of struggling for life. The study covered only abortions performed between the 12th and 22nd weeks of pregnancy, when the operation is allowed in Denmark under limited circumstances.

A spokesman for Danish midwives said that the results of the study could be unsettling, but “not a major problem.” American abortionists often inject poison into the heart of an unborn child to ensure its death before a late-term abortion is begun.
