If you ask Democrats like Ralph Northam, babies like this don't deserve to live.
Abortion data from just seven states show babies continue to be born alive in botched abortions every year across the United States.
Most states do not keep track of the number of babies who survive abortions, and the few that do provide little information about whether the babies received care, survived or were abandoned to die.
LifeNews examined abortion data from seven states between 2020 and 2022 and found reports of 34 babies who were born alive in botched abortions.
These numbers are from just 7 states, so the likelihood of these numbers being much higher is almost certain.
And these are babies that survived the attempted murder and were kept alive.
We know that in cases like Kermit Gosnell's mass murder abortion clinic, many babies born alive are killed outside the womb or left to die.
For the past several years, Republicans in Congress have been trying to pass the Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act, which would increase protections for babies who survive abortions. The bill would require that the same basic medical care be provided to babies who survive abortions as would be provided to any other baby born at the same gestational age. It also would impose penalties on medical workers who neglect to provide that care. However, Democrat leaders have blocked the legislation dozens of times.
Research by Tessa Longbons of Charlotte Lozier Institute found that protections for babies who survive abortions are inconsistent across the United States, with fewer than half of states maintaining sufficient protections.
Reports from other countries prove that babies survive abortions, too, and legal protections for them are needed. In Canada, the Canadian Institute of Health Information recorded 766 late-term, live-birth abortions over a five-year period in 2018. And in Australia, the country's health minister admitted that 27 babies survived abortions in the state of Western Australia between 1999 and 2016. A report out of Ireland also suggests babies are surviving abortions and being left to die there.
Roe may have been overturned, but the Left's commitment to murdering the younger generation is just as strong as ever.
Protections against infanticide have to be codified into law and these abortion mills must be shut down.
