News out of China tells the story of a tiny baby who survived an abortion . . .
With that many abortions, it’s inevitable that some of these babies would survive. But what happens when they do? In at least one instance, the baby was placed inside a plastic bag, with the intention of suffocating the baby to death. But instead, the baby was rescued, and survived.
Lili, an 18-year-old teenager, found out she was pregnant, and kept the baby a secret until she was 35 weeks along. At that point, her brother took her for an abortion, performed by midwife Liang Xiaohua. Lili was told that the abortion was successful, and she paid a fee for the disposal of her baby’s remains. But Liang, the midwife, thought Lili’s baby could survive, and when she heard the baby crying, she took the baby out of the plastic bag and hid the baby in a cupboard after providing the child with oxygen and water.
She then sold the baby to her cousin, but it only took a matter of days for villagers to become suspicious. Police were notified, and three days after the abortion, Lili was notified that her child had survived, and was still alive. Midwife Liang Xiaohua was arrested and charged with child abduction.
At this stage of development, week 35 in the third trimester of pregnancy, the preborn baby weighs about five pounds, is practicing breathing, and has almost fully developed lungs, according to WebMD. A baby born at this stage has a 99 percent chance of survival. (Read more from “Infant Who Survived an Abortion at 35 Weeks Saved by Nurse Who Heard Baby Crying Inside Plastic Bag” HERE)
