Former US Surgeon General: 45 of 607 babies were born alive

Former U.S. Surgeon General C. Everett Koop, M.D., tells of live births after abortions:

“Although technically the result of legal abortion, each foetus expelled alive because of prostaglandin lives for several hours…One series of 607 second trimester abortions from Mt. Sinai Hospital in Hartford, Connecticut, resulted in 45 live births including one set of twins. None of the babies survived more than 13 hours.”
