Shock Video: “We Will Not Resuscitate” Baby Born Alive After Failed Abortion
Life news ^ | Steven Ertelt

Posted on 05/02/2013 9:25:00 AM PDT by Morgana

A third shocking undercover video has been released showing abortion clinic staffers saying they will not revive babies who are born alive after failed abortions. The videos show embattled abortion practitioner Kermit Gosnell was not an anomaly.

The new video comes on the heels of abortion doctor Cesare Santangelo of Washington, D.C, who was exposed on a recent undercover video telling a 24-week pregnant woman that in the unlikely event that an abortion resulted in a live birth, “we would not help it.” Before that, the pro-life group released a video showing an abortion facility staff member saying an unborn child born alive after a botched abortion should just be flushed down the toilet.

Now, Live Action released a third undercover video exposing Phoenix, Arizona-based late-term abortion doctor Laura Mercer and an abortion center counselor who would leave a newborn, struggling for life after a failed abortion, to die.

This is the third in a series of undercover videos, found at www.liveaction.org/inhuman, involving the illegal and inhuman practices of late-term abortion centers, as well as describing in horrific detail what happens to the mother and baby in a late-term abortion.

When asked by the undercover investigator what would happen if the baby were to survive the abortion, Linda, an abortion center counselor, admits they would not help the baby:

Sometimes they are [alive], yeah. But it doesn’t–it doesn’t necessarily mean that it will come out whole. ‘Cause they use suction, plus they use instruments so sometimes the fetuses don’t come out–you know, it’s not complete…

Investigator: But if it does come out whole…I mean, are–will they resuscitate it? Like, will I have to take care of it?

Linda: Uh-uh… No…They do not resuscitate.

Doctor Mercer tells an undercover Live Action investigator who is 24 weeks pregnant:

We do the injection, which is a quick poke through your belly, um, and that stops the fetal heart, so that makes it so, if you were to deliver, there shouldn’t be movement. There shouldn’t be any of those things… Yes we induce a demise–an intrauterine demise… Um, death.

Then Live Action investigator asks whether an ambulance should be called if the mother goes into labor during the two-day procedure. Dr. Mercer instructs the investigator not to call:

No, call us first…if you showed up in an average emergency room with an emergency room physician who’s not a gynecologist, probably has never seen or done a termination, they will treat you as though you are somebody with a desired pregnancy…

Investigator: So they would basically like try to take care of it.

Dr. Mercer: Right they would intervene and do all kinds of crazy things that you don’t need to have done to you…

“This video is just the latest evidence of a disturbing and horrifying trend occurring inside America’s abortion industry,” said Lila Rose of Lila Action.

She told LifeNews in a statement: “The horrors of the Kermit Gosnell trial are a widespread problem in this industry. Dismembering and destroying innocent children, leaving born babies to die, injecting poison into the chest of a tiny child so that he slowly dies in his own mother’s womb – this is all standard operating procedure in the abortion industry. But these children are human beings. They have the same basic human rights and deserve the same protections all of us enjoy.”

Rose condemned the “barbaric, inhuman, and deeply disturbing” practices espoused by Dr. Mercer and the late-term abortion center staff at Family Planning Associates Medical Group.

“The testimony we’ve documented in this abortion facility strongly suggests that staff there are committing infanticide,” said Rose. “The Family Planning Associates Medical Group needs to be investigated immediately, and delicensed. Women are at risk during these brutal procedures, and this is a matter of life and death for these children.”

Rose is calling for Attorney General Eric Holder and the U.S. Attorney’s office to investigate and prosecute Dr. Mercer and the Family Planning Associates Medical Group, who admit they violate federal law. Rose also called on local health and law enforcement officials to investigate Dr. Mercer and Family Planning Associates Medical Group and put an end to illegal and inhuman practices.

From the letter to Attorney General Holder: “We urge you, as the U.S. Attorney General, to speak out against this injustice, and to see to it that Dr. Mercer and the Family Planning Associates Medical Group are duly investigated and prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law. … I hope that you will do everything in your power to speak out for victims of infanticide – both the children and the women – and to protect the human rights of our weakest citizens.”

What shocks me is the seeming indifference by many supposedly intelligent people. This is the greatest holocaust in world history and it is going on under our very noses. Those people living outside of the Nazi concentration camps had less culpability. We all know what goes on inside of those clinics. We know!!

How does one go about “resuscitating” a baby born alive?

Abortionists who don’t mind killing a baby while she’s still inside her mother’s body also don’t mind killing the baby once she’s outside of her mother. Why would that shock anyone? It disgusts me, but pretty much everything about abortionists does.

I think that Americans have to learn that Evil people are not satisified living in a good land beside good people, they must dictate evil.

No matter how much we want to live in peace and get along, we will be forced in the end to wrestle back the reigns of control over our Nation and banish evil back to the dark environs it comes from. There is no “live and let live” with evil people. There is only death down that road.

Millions of Good Americans have been flushed down the toilets of these evil people.

They don’t know really. Videos like this help. Your average joe on the street, he don’t know...

Why do you think they “kill” the evidence?
To actually call an ambulance for the fetus born alive? That would mean having the baby admitted to the neo-natal ICU unit in the local hospital. Now you understand that if they did this EVER TIME that happened that would average about 5 or 6? babies a day. They would flood the local neo-natal ICU with babies. Parents who need their baby put in neo-natal ICU would complain because there would be no room. Operation Rescue would be chasing every ambulance that carried a premature fetus to the hospital.

Yea then maybe the word would get out. Then after people are “bother” by a long line at the neo-natal ICU and all the ambulance chasing by Operation Rescue.

I went to the link to the original story, and then from there to the video links. The counselor outright LIED to the woman (investigator), which I think is usual and customary in the pro-death-cult.

I once knew a lady who was so mentally brainwashed by the ‘’prochoice’’ agenda, that she thought her big pregnant belly was just fat, and that it turned into a baby on the way out.

The look on the woman’s face answering the committee’s question is the only thing that shocks me. She knows she is wrong, and you can tell. It means she still has a soul and a conscious in there somewhere.

You can see the lie in her eyes.
