Baby survives abortion in Arkansas

NRTL tells of an incident in Pine Bluff, Arkansas when an abortion resulted in a live baby:

“In the examining room after the abortion, the doctor wrapped the baby in a towel and laid it aside while he finished caring for Marie. The infant continued to squirm and cry.

Soon afterward, Marie left the doctor’s office for a friend’s house nearby. The physician then placed the child in a sack and gave it to one of the two friends who had accompanied Marie…

In a few minutes, the woman with the sack arrived at the house where Marie was waiting. She said the doctor had told her to “take it along with you and pretty soon it will stop moving.”

After Marie fell asleep, the friends kept their death watch over the aborted infant until they decided to seek help.”

The baby survived.

  1. Abortion should be taken care of no later than 12 weeks,but late term is sick!!If you carry a baby till 24 weeks you should be unselfish enough to carry full term and let someone adopt!!I think late term abortion should be illegal,and I can’t imagine what kind of person could do this.
