Mother Tiffany Oborn has shared with Live Action News pictures of her 19-week old baby who lived for almost two-hours after she went into premature labor. Her son, Grayson, was born at 19-weeks five days and was fully developed and the photos of him are powerful evidence of the humanity of unborn children who can legally be killed in abortions.

She said, “I delivered my sweet baby at 19 weeks and 5 days. I went into premature labor. It happened so fast. He lived for almost two hours. He was fully developed— even had little fingernails and toenails— his ears were not fused to the back of his head anymore.”

Additionally, Oborn explained that she wanted to share pictures of Grayson because of legislative efforts to ban abortion after 20-weeks fetal age.

She said, “I delivered right before 20 weeks, so it is very painful for people to tell me that they think abortion should be OK at 24 weeks, because the baby has no choice of living. My baby lived for two hours, so tell me how that is not taking a life?”

As LifeNews previously reported, in July, Senate officials indicated that they are planning to vote on a 20-week abortion ban when they return from their August recess. Then, on September 10th, they said the vote could be as early as this week. Officials also said the tentative plan is to have the Judiciary Committee take up the legislation this month and for the Senate to vote on it in October.

ACTION: Help LifeNews raise $15,000 to expose and defund Planned Parenthood.

The Planned Parenthood videos released by The Center for Medical Progress (CMP) showing their top executives negotiating the sale of aborted babies and discussing ways to procure “fully-intact” organs highlight the need for a 20-week abortion ban in America. In fact, last month Planned Parenthood got a judge to issue a restraining order against CMP to stop them from releasing more videos exposing how they obtain intact fetal organs.

The President of CMP, David Daleiden, explained, “In a meeting with their top leadership where their leadership admitted that they sometimes get fully intact fetuses shipped to their laboratory from the abortion clinics they work with, and that could be prima facie evidence of born alive infants. And so that’s why they’re trying to suppress that videotape and they’re very scared of it.”

This information potentially means Planned Parenthood is breaking the federal Born Alive Infants Protection Act that requires abortion clinics, hospitals and other places that do abortions to provide medical care for a baby born alive after a failed abortion. In other words, Planned Parenthood could be obtaining “fully-intact” organs by performing botched late-abortions and then allowing the child to die after birth.
