SPUC has questioned the figures surrounding abortion survivors in the United Kingdom, after it has emerged that at least 40 babies were born alive after failed abortion attempts between 2016 and 2018 across three American states.

The new state data has been described as ‘disturbing’ by SPUC Chief Executive, John Smeaton, after it revealed that following failed abortions, 19 babies were born alive in Florida, 11 in Minnesota and 10 in Arizona across a period of three years.

 According to Fox News, The US Centres for Disease Control, (CDC), believe that at least 143 babies were born alive after failed abortion attempts in the USA between 2003 and 2014, whilst research compiled by the American Center for Law and Justice, suggests that figure to be much higher, estimating that there have been 362 US abortion survivors between 2001-2010.

…..According to The Mirror, a spokesperson for one of the UK’s largest abortion giants, Marie Stopes, has said that: “The chance of a termination failing is very low. In the UK, around 0.02% of women who have had a surgical abortion will require a further procedure.”

According to the UK’s most recent abortion statistics, this would point towards an average of 19 failed abortion attempts per year.
