Abortion Survivor: Baby Grace

From The Survivors

On August 4, 1999, a woman came to Good Samaritan Hospital in Dayton, Ohio. She was 26 weeks pregnant, and had gone to Martin Haskell's abortion facility for a D&X or "partial birth abortion." Haskell had inserted laminaria to dilate her cervix so that the fetus could be extracted and killed. However, the woman had gone into labor before the final appointment.

The child, dubbed "Baby Grace", was born alive, weighing in at 1.5 pounds. She survived and was placed in foster care. Doctors at the hospital established a trust fund for her future medical care.

After the birth, Haskell's clinic issued a press release stating that "one of our patients miscarried at a Dayton hospital. Hundreds of women miscarry during the second trimester in the United States each week." How they manage to describe a live birth as a "miscarriage" boggles the mind.
