An antiabortion group that mounted a six-month undercover investigation has released videos this week that raise questions about what might happen to a baby as a result of an unsuccessful abortion.
One video features a D.C. doctor, Cesare Santangelo, who said that in the unlikely event that an abortion resulted in a live birth, we would not help it. Santangelo was answering repeated questions from an undercover operative about what would happen, hypothetically, if she gave birth after an unsuccessful abortion.
I mean, technically, you know, legally, we would be obligated to help it, you know, to survive, but . . . it probably wouldnt, Santangelo is shown telling the woman, who was 24 weeks pregnant. Its all in how vigorously you do things to help a fetus survive at this point.
Live Action president Lila Rose said the groups videos expose truly gruesome, illegal and inhuman practices. She defended the tactics, saying undercover investigations are a powerful method to expose abuses.
Live Action plans to release more videos as part of a campaign targeting clinics that perform abortions late in pregnancy, also known as late-term abortions. It claims that the videos show that abortion doctors are willing to kill babies in violation of the federal Born-Alive Infants Protection Act of 2002, which requires them to try to save a child born during a failed abortion using the same measures used in miscarriages or preterm births at the same stage of pregnancy.
Another video released Sunday shows an unidentified worker in the Bronx saying the clinic would put the baby in a jar of solution that would cause it to stop breathing.

The abortion boosters were so wrong; so are the
American people as a whole who sanction abortion; many even applaud it. I don’t think they can learn.
Socialists in America and elsewhere don’t see this as “bloodshed” and “murder” but as “sexual freedom.” That’s all that matters to many calling themselves “Americans”.
