Midwife: a baby was born alive after abortion every three weeks’

In one hospital:

“In 1985, one midwife is reported to have confirmed that her unit had ‘one [live] baby born under 28 weeks every three weeks’ (Nursing Times, 24 July 1985, p. 5). Another midwife confirmed that viable births resulting from abortions were posing serious problems, not least that of forcing midwives and medical staff to ‘decide how to dispose of live babies’
