Infanticide Hearing Witness Says Hospital Created ‘Comfort Room’ For Aborted Babies To Die In
Daily Caller ^ | SEPT. 10, 2019 | Mary Margaret Olohan

* Testimony from nurse Jill Stanek asserts that Christ Church Hospital in Illinois created a “comfort room” for aborted babies to die in.

* Stanek spoke at a hearing on infanticide in Washington, D.C., where lawmakers and activists spoke out against born-alive abortion.

* Doctors at Christ Church Hospital performed born alive abortions and would afterward allow the babies to die.

WASHINGTON. Christ Hospital in Oak Lawn, Illinois, allegedly has a ‘comfort room’ for aborted babies who are born alive to die in, according to nurse Jill Stanek.

Stanek spoke about her experiences Wednesday at a hearing on the Born Alive Act in Washington, D.C.

The nurse explained that while she was working at the hospital, she observed that doctors performed “live birth abortions,” a procedure in which the doctors perform an abortion and allow the baby to die during or after the abortion.

Stanek explained that Christ Hospital offered “comfort care” to babies who were born alive during these abortions, because these babies often survived for at least two hours after they were born. The hospital did not yet respond to a request for comment from the Daily Caller News Foundation.

Comfort care, Stanek said, is to wrap the baby in a blanket and keep the baby warm until the baby dies. Parents at Christ Hospital were given the option to hold the baby as well.

“If staff did not have the time or desire to hold the baby, she was taken to Christ Hospital’s Comfort Room, which was complete with a First Photo machine if parents wanted professional pictures of their aborted baby, baptismal supplies, gowns and certificates, foot printing equipment and baby bracelets for mementos, and a rocking chair,” Stanek explained in a testimony previously posted

“Before the Comfort Room was established, babies were taken to the Soiled Utility Room to die,” Stanek added in her article.

The nurse compared the care to what Democratic Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam said in a January interview: “The infant would be delivered. The infant would be kept comfortable. The infant would be resuscitated if that’s what the mother and the family desired, and then a discussion would ensue between the physicians and the mother.”

Stanek also told those assembled that she once witnessed a nurse deliver a live baby, cut the umbilical cord but fail to clamp it (causing the baby to begin bleeding), put the baby in a bag and throw the child in the trash.

“One night, a nursing co-worker was taking a baby with Down syndrome who had been aborted alive to our Soiled Utility Room because his parents did not want to hold him, and she did not have time to hold him,” Stanek said. The baby was 21 to 22 weeks old, she said. “Toward the end, he was so quiet I could not tell if he was still alive,” Stanek said. “I held him up to the light to see through his chest wall whether his heart was still beating. After he was pronounced dead, I folded his little arms across his chest, wrapped him in a tiny shroud and carried him to the hospital morgue where all of our dead patients are taken.”

This incident prompted Stanek to end her employment at Christ Hospital.

The nurse explained that she could not bear the thought of the baby dying alone in the Soiled Utility Room. Stanek held the baby for the last 45 minutes of his life, saying he was too weak to move since any energy he had he was using to breathe.

why would something that they call not human yet, just a clump of cells in their view, need a ‘comfort room’ to die in?

These butchers/mass murderers have a special place in hell awaiting them if they don’t change their ways and accept Christ as Savior and stop this mass murder of innocent human beings

Better question is why they would not help a baby who survived an abortion. Their side said life begins at birth. Well the baby survived them and made it to birth, so now isn’t letting the baby die murder?

Think about it.

their side is arguing that even after birth, they are not human beings yet- still just a clump of cells in their view- They are mass murderers trying to justify their death trade

Yea because most abortionist are so terrible at their jobs they can’t even get that right. More and more babies are surviving and now they have to say we should be able to kill them after wards.

They love to change the rules as they go.

I wonder how Gosnell sleeps in his cell at night. Still pray for him but you gotta wonder.

I wonder if any of those nurses ever say, “Die, damn it. My shift is over and I want to go home.”

Leftists are the baby killers in our society and they love to murder behind closed doors of hospitals or abortion mill buildings.

I don’t lead a clean life, I’m a sinner. I need to be better....but this is just so despicable and heartbreaking. Imagine the lives these babies would live with couples wanting these children in adoption. (see my tagline)

That hospital and trauma center is located in a Chicago southwest suburb has a religious affiliation. It’s a shocker to learn they were performing abortions . My father passed away in their facilities from a stroke in 98

CHRIST Church Hospital

There will be a pay day one day for these killers of God's creation. Citizens who vote for pro-abortion legislators are accessories to murder.

“Better question is why they would not help a baby who survived an abortion.”

Politicians — Obama, for one — specifically voted agains the “Born Alive” Act. The Act would rescue these babies.

Having been in the hospital for long periods of time, I’ve noticed there are some sadists (at worst), and lazy asses in that profession. Watch out for the ones who request the graveyard shift. Slackers love that shift.

NEVER FORGET...…
“Arbeit macht frei...is a German phrase meaning “work sets you free. The slogan is known for appearing on the entrance of Auschwitz and other Nazi concentration camps.[1]
…An example of ridiculing the falsity of the slogan was a popular saying used among Auschwitz prisoners:
Arbeit macht frei (Work makes you free)
durch Krematorium Nummer drei (Through Krematorium Number Three)[11]”
Wikipedia
Or in Illinois..COMFORT ROOM. One wonder’s what they are called in Cuomo’s New York, the state of one of the most publicized governmental approved (and highest number, & highest ratio) of abortions of the united states according to one internet site.

You really don’t know Jill Stanek’s story do you?

From the article-

..”which was complete with a First Photo machine if parents wanted professional pictures of their aborted baby,..”

What kind of sicko does this?

When i was younger I did not believe there was this kind of evil and apathy in the world. Jesus help us.
