From Lori Ziganto’s latest article at RedState
I read this article in The Telegraph the other day about a 22 week old fetus, an unborn baby, who survived an abortion attempt and lived for two days; unattended to, abandoned and left to die. Alone.
After I stopped weeping and saying a prayer for that innocent life lost, a couple of other things struck me in the article.
A spokesman for the ProLife Alliance said: “There cannot be anybody in the world who is not horrified by a story like this nor anybody in the UK who would not support a massive reduction in the upper limit for abortion.”
Wrong. It happens here, too. And Pro-abortionists, including President Obama, aren’t horrified. In fact, they, and he, support late term abortion, as well as letting babies who have survived abortion attempts be left to die.
However, the infant survived the procedure, carried out on Saturday in the Rossano Calabro hospital, and was left by doctors to die. He was discovered alive the following day – some 20 hours after the operation – by Father Antonio Martello, the hospital chaplain, who had gone to pray beside his body.
He found that the baby, wrapped in a sheet with his umbilical cord still attached, was moving and breathing.
Pro-abortion advocates disingenuously argue about viability. Firstly, alleged viability occurs earlier and earlier with advancements in medicine. Secondly, what about life itself? This baby was Life. With a heart and a soul, that included the spirit and the will to live, so strong even at the hands of those who tried to purposefully snuff that life out.
