Pro-choice author Magda Denes quoted an abortion worker who said that two babies were born alive in her clinic in one week:
There was one week when there were two live births in the same week. And just, you know, there’s this baby crying on the floor while all these women are in the process of trying to deal with their feelings about aborting their babies. One survived for a while.
[Denes] how did the mothers react who gave birth to the live babies?
Well. This one, she didn’t talk much. The mother delivered when there was no one there and there was some period when the mother was holding the baby. And it was grabbing onto her.… She was extremely upset by this whole thing.
