I just read a chilling story. No, not a horror novel, but a news story that happened in Italy: Baby Boy Survives for Nearly Two Days After Abortion.
The mother, pregnant for the first time, had opted for an abortion after prenatal scans suggested that her baby was disabled.
However, the infant survived the procedure, carried out on Saturday in the Rossano Calabro hospital, and was left by doctors to die.
He was discovered alive the following day – some 20 hours after the operation – by Father Antonio Martello, the hospital chaplain, who had gone to pray beside his body.
He found that the baby, wrapped in a sheet with his umbilical cord still attached, was moving and breathing.
Yes, you read that right. A baby was born alive and left to die by doctors.
