The issue of abortion is a very hot topic recently. Some argue that abortion is just ordinary murder while others argue that it is a right and the freedom to decide should be enjoyed by all women.
It happens that sometimes children survive an abortion, but then what happens to them? In many countries this is still a taboo subject, which doctors prefer to avoid. When the baby has vital functions, doctors rarely take the decision to resuscitate them. Medics approach it with the assumption that it does not make sense to do so because they will not live long anyway.
Typically, the matter of saving a child is not entirely black and white, and the decision is made by the present birth specialist. Usually they place them in incubators and connect them to drip feeds or parenterally feed them. Sometimes they don’t even do that. They just wait until the little one passes away.
You’re probably wondering how is it possible that a child ever manages to survive? Abortions are carried out in various ways. The pharmacological and surgical methods do not give the fetus any chance to survive (if done correctly) and artificial induction of contractions is associated with a risk of approx. 10%.
