Do we know how many US Babies have been born alive after abortion?


The government’s Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) issued a report in April, 2016 that estimates between 2003 and 2014, at least 143 babies were born alive during abortions and then later passed away – this report does not include babies who survived attempted abortions and are still alive. 

Today only six states require the reporting of statistics on children marked for abortion who were born alive during abortion procedures, and only five states (Arizona, Florida, Michigan, Minnesota, and Oklahoma) have reported at least 25 children were born alive during attempted abortions in 2017.

Thirty-one states have laws offering at least some explicit protection to babies who survive abortions. While Roy Cooper and Democrats across the country are proponents for additional regulations and accountability in the area of law enforcement, pharmaceuticals, financial services, agriculture, health insurance and medical care they are quick to say any additional duty to care regulations for infants are unnecessary and regressive.
