At 23-weeks, Micah was born weighing only one pound, eight ounces. According to the Mayo Clinic, at 23 weeks’ gestation some infants can survive with intensive medical care and thankfully, Micah was one of these babies.
However, CareNet reports that if it weren’t for the work of a Pregnancy Care Center, Micah wouldn’t be here today. Micah’s mother, Angel, called the center’s Pregnancy Decision Line (PDL) looking for information about abortion.
CareNet explains what happened next: “When she learned about the risks of abortion from our pregnancy decision coach, Angel wasn’t so sure she should go through with it. The PDL coach offered her the contact information for the nearest pregnancy center. She went in for an ultrasound and immediately fell in love with her baby!”
Angel decided to choose life for her baby and carry her son to term but unfortunately, he arrived early and doctors said Micah only had a 10% chance of survival.
Angel said, “The nurses and doctors said Micah was the smallest baby they had ever seen, and that he only had a 10 percent chance of survival.” Miraculously, though, Micah survived despite his doctor’s grim expectations.
As LifeNews previously reported, a study was published in The New England Journal of Medicine reveals that more “micro preemies” are living outside the womb than doctors thought possible. Currently, a micro preemie is considered to be a baby born weighing less than 1 pound, 12 ounces or before 26-weeks. In fact, the New York Times reports that the study found that some babies born at 22-weeks who receive advanced medical care have survived with few health problems.
This new reality really questions the legality of late-term abortion, which occurs in at least 275 abortion facilities across the country. Earlier this year, the Center for Disease Control reported that in 2011 alone there were 9,709 abortions done at 18-20 weeks and 7,325 abortions on babies older than 21 weeks.
Additionally, the new information regarding Planned Parenthood’s involvement with organ harvesting makes one wonder if late abortion is popular at their facilities for this reason. In other words, if baby Micah was aborted at one of their clinics would they have sold his parts for profit?
The Medical Director of Planned Parenthood said herself that the end goal of many abortions, isn’t just to kill the unborn child, but to obtain organs. In the undercover footage released by the Center for Medical Progress, Dr. Deborah Nacatola, said, “We’ve been very good at getting heart, lung, liver, because we know that, so I’m not gonna crush that part, I’m gonna basically crush below, I’m gonna crush above, and I’m gonna see if I can get it all intact.”
She added, “And with the calvarium, in general, some people will actually try to change the presentation so that it’s not vertex. So if you do it starting from the breech presentation, there’s dilation that happens as the case goes on, and often, the last step, you can evacuate an intact calvarium at the end.”
Dr. Nacatola also admitted that when Planned Parenthood abortionists know what they need for harvesting, they can alter procedures to make that happen. She explained, “I’d say a lot of people want liver. And for that reason, most providers will do this case under ultrasound guidance, so they’ll know where they’re putting their forceps. The kind of rate-limiting step of the procedure is calvarium. Calvarium—the head—is basically the biggest part.”
A second video was released yesterday with another top Planned Parenthood doctor discussing and arranging for the sale of body parts from babies killed in abortions. She said she wanted to make enough money for the sale of aborted babies to be able to afford a Lamborghini.
