The 22-week infant was found breathing a day after the operation. He died one day later in intensive care at a hospital in the mother's home town of Rossano, in southern Italy.
The mother, pregnant for the first time, had opted for an abortion after prenatal scans revealed that the foetus had a cleft lip and palate, according to reports in the Italian media. The condition is treatable with surgery.

Ohhh my.. Read the rest of the article... Heart Breaking:
However, the infant survived the procedure, carried out on Saturday in the Rossano Calabro hospital, and was left by doctors to die.
He was discovered alive the following day – some 20 hours after the operation – by Father Antonio Martello, the hospital chaplain, who had gone to pray beside his body. He found that the baby, wrapped in a sheet with his umbilical cord still attached, was moving and breathing.

Why is this story anymore heartbreaking than those of the millions of unborn children who have suffered the same fate through abortion? Allowing millions of innocent children to ripped out of their mother's womb has bred a mindset that children are just things we throw away when they don't fit into the plan we have for our lives at the moment. There are millions of other stories of children just like this, however, they were just never told. People should be horrified by the fact that abortion even exists, not just the stories like this that put an actual face on the victim & expose the reality of the tragedy of such a procedure.
