Rebutting false claim that CBR intact-delivery abortion video depicts a miscarriage

Intact abortion.

Intact abortion, with beating heart.

Some in the media have falsely claimed that the intact abortion shown in CBR’s video is actually a miscarriage, not an abortion.

Medical malpractice lawsuits have become so common that OB/GYNs practice defensive medicine.  They protect themselves by over-diagnosing, over-treating and over-prescribing.  No doctor delivering this baby as a preemie in a hospital would fail to provide neonatal intensive care.  Even if he had no compassion for the baby or his parents, the doctor would provide care to avoid being sued for negligence.  Warren Hern, in his book “Abortion Practice,” warns of the difficulty in estimating fetal ages.  A baby moving as vigorously as this one is presumptively entitled to care and would receive it — unless the attending physician is an abortionist, which is the case here.

Miscarried embryos and fetuses are virtually all still births involving a baby who expired in the uterus and was later born dead.  A preemie in a hospital is born alive and given intensive care — not slapped around in a pan as happened here with a baby who survived the abortion depicted at the beginning of the video.
