Video exposes DC abortionist promising a live baby would not survive after abortion attempt

Catholic World News - April 29, 2013

In a new exposé of the American abortion industry, the pro-life group Live Action has released video footage in which an abortionists in Washington, DC, says that he would do his best to assure the death of a baby who survived an abortion.

In the video, recorded by an undercover investigator for Live Action, abortionist Cesare Santengelo says that the law would require him to provide life-saving help to a child who survived an abortion attempt. But he assured the investigator—who was a pregnant woman posing as someone who wanted a late-term abortion—that he could assure her the child would not survive. He said that his clinic would not take steps to save the baby's life.
