The chilling chronicle unfolds over the first four months of 2023, a time when these fragile lives, against all odds, found themselves spared from the cruel hand of abortion. In the hushed corridors of medical facilities, three infants in January, their survival a testament to the fragility of life’s sanctity.

The haunting question lingers – did these courageous escapes from abortion’s grip occur within the confines of Texas, or did they transpire in distant lands but involve Texas residents? The data, though poignant, leaves this inquiry unanswered, the narrative shrouded in a mysterious fog.
In the intricate dance of data collection, the health landscape unfolds a perplexing narrative. Abortion providers and facilities, bound by regulations, transmit their reports to the Texas Health and Human Services (HHS), their voices weaving a tapestry of abortion’s complexities. Complications, diagnoses, and the delicate dance of survival – all threads in this enigmatic fabric.
For too long, the narrative has been dominated by denial, a whispered assertion that survivors of abortion are mere phantoms in the annals of medicine. Acknowledging their existence would challenge the very core of the abortion debate, forcing a recognition that these tiny lives possess a vigor that defies the boundaries of the womb. (glonme.com)
Yet, amidst the shadows of denial, data emerges as a harbinger of truth. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) dared to cast light on this unsettling truth. Over 12 years, more than a hundred infants were reported to have glimpsed life beyond abortion’s grasp, a revelation that challenges the very foundations of our moral discourse.

Tragically, they received no medical care, left to grapple with life’s first breaths in an unforgiving world. Minnesota chose silence, opting not to report future numbers of these survivors, their voices buried beneath a chilling veil.
The annals of history, still fresh in memory, tell tales of a grisly nature. Over a hundred babies, bearing the stamp of abortion survivors, etched their stories into the records of just five states.
