An Australian member of parliament petitioned to launch an investigation after 27 babies born alive died at an abortion clinic, following failed abortions.
“It is contrary to law for these babies not to be provided with care and medical attention; it is contrary to law for these matters not to be reported to the Department of Child Protection and for the Coroner not to investigate,” said Australian Member of Parliament Nick Goiran, according to Christian Headlines. “The law of Western Australia is actually okay – it’s just not being followed or implemented.”
Goiran began a petition calling for an investigation of the crimes, and presented it to parliament after it received approximately 7,000 signatures. The babies that were born and then left to die resulted from failed late-term abortions and could have survived with proper care, according to Goiran. The incidents at the unnamed Australian abortion clinic occurred between 1999 and 2016, Christian Headlines reports.
The petition for investigation comes after a former Planned Parenthood procurement technician of body parts from aborted babies explained how the American company was similarly exploiting live babies. Technicians were only allowed to take fetal tissue from babies who were alive before they were aborted, Holly O’Donnell, a whistleblower and former StemExpress procurement technician, said in a video released by the Center For Medical Progress.
