Minnesota's Department of Health has released a report on abortions in the state in 2021 that shows there were 5 documented cases of botched abortions with children born alive who were allowed to die without care.
From the Christian Post:
An annual report detailing Minnesota's abortion data reveals that five babies were born alive after the procedure and no efforts were made to save their lives...
In 2015, Minnesota enacted the "Born Alive Infant Protection Act," amending abortion reporting requirements to include information about whether an abortion resulted in a born-alive infant. Consistent with the requirements of the law, the Minnesota Department of Health's report on induced abortions in the state identified five abortions "resulting in a born-alive infant."
Abortionists who fail to murder their victim are compelled under law to do everything they can to save the child if he or she comes out breathing.
But shocker, the baby killers did nothing to save the babies.
Under the statutes, infants born alive as the result of abortion are to be "fully recognized as a human person" and all reasonable measures must be taken to preserve the life and health of the infant. The report indicates that in three of the five cases, "No measures taken to preserve life were reported and the infant did not survive."
One of the five babies born alive had "fetal anomalies," leading to the child's death after delivery. Two other "previable" infants were also born alive before dying, with no measures taken to preserve life in these instances either. Two born-alive babies were provided with comfort care before they died, as required by the state's Born Alive Infant Protection Act.
"Comfort care" is code for, as former Virginia governor Northam would say, "keeping the child comfortable while a decision is made."
Meaning the child is kept comfortable and allowed to die because they make no real efforts to save her life.
The state of Minnesota, despite the Born Alive Infant Protection Act, has not taken any action against these doctors who did not follow the letter of the law.
"When an abortion is performed after the 20th week of pregnancy, a physician, other than the physician performing the abortion, shall be immediately accessible to take all reasonable measures consistent with good medical practice, including the compilation of appropriate medical records, to preserve the life and health of any born alive infant that is the result of the abortion," the law reads.
What's the point of these laws if they don't result in prosecutions?
Live Action reported that there were 108 babies born alive in abortion procedures across 5 states in from 2008-2020. Only a few have reporting requirements for abortionists, and practically no legislation lays out penalties for a doctor who denies life-saving care to these kids.
There's a long way to go in the fight for life, folks.
