Abortionist on what doctors do when baby is born alive

Dr. Warren Pearse, then executive director of American College of Obstetrics and Gynecology, was asked what abortionists do when a baby is born alive during an abortion.

”What you would do next [after expulsion] is nothing. You assume the infant is dead unless it shows signs of life. You’re dealing with a dead fetus unless there is sustained respiration- its not enough if there’s a single heartbeat or an occasional gasp.”

“Abortion: The Dreaded Complication” by Liz Jeffries and Rick Edmonds, Philadelphia Inquirer Aug 2, 1982
