Sad: Nurses share heartbreaking stories of what happens to babies who survive abortions
Babies who survive abortions: In a situation when a baby is born alive during an abortion procedure, such baby is kept in the abortion clinic until he or she dies which happens mostly. Also, there are rare cases whereby the abortionist himself takes action to terminate the life of the baby. But sometimes the baby is transferred to a hospital, where he can be given medical attention and treatment. Sadly, it is the policy of different hospitals simply to allow these babies to die.
A nurse, Kathleen Malloy, from Jacksonville, Florida, experienced the death of one baby who was born after a saline operation and transferred to her hospital. The narration was contained in Melanie Green of Last Days Ministries quoted Malloy in her pamphlet “Children: Things We Throw Away?” Malloy tells her story:
I worked the 11pm to 7am shift, and when we weren’t busy, I’d go out to help with newborns. On a faithful night, I saw a bassinet outside the nursery. There was a baby in this bassinet – a crying, perfectly formed baby- but there was a difference in this particular child. The baby has been scalded. She was the child of a saline abortion.
The little girl looked as if she had been put in a pot of boiling water. No doctor, no nurse, no parent, to comfort this hurt, burned child. She was left alone to die in pain. Sad! They wouldn’t let her in the nursery – they even didn’t care about covering her.
I was very ashamed of my profession that night! It was disgusting and very hard to believe this could happen in our modern hospitals, but it does. It happens all the time. I thought a hospital is place to heal the sick and not to kill any soul.
Subsequently, I asked a nurse at another hospital what they do with their babies that are aborted by saline. Unlike my hospital, where I found the baby left alone struggling for breath, their hospital puts the infant in a bucket and puts the lid on. It was suffocation! Death by suffocation!
A saline abortion is done by injecting the caustic saline solution into the amniotic fluid that surrounds an unborn baby in the second trimester. The baby will then breathe in the fluid which will burn her lungs and scorches her skin, making her die within several hours. Then the mother will goes through labor to give birth to the dead baby. This form of abortion is seldom performed today because it led to so many live births and since it was dangerous to women, it had the potential to cause severe damage to the woman’s body in case the saline injection penetrated to her bloodstream. A similar process where poison is injected into the baby’s heart, or in some cases, the amniotic fluid, still takes place today and is used in the late second and third trimesters.
The baby Malloy watched die never had a name and never had a chance to live. In a similar situation, Gianna Jessen, who was also aborted by the saline procedure, was given medical care and survived. She is now a pro-life activist, and her website can be found online.
