In Australia, babies that survive abortion are being drowned in buckets of formaldehyde or abandoned on shelves until they die:

Babies that are surviving late-term abortions at Melbourne’s Royal Women’s Hospital might be being left on shelves to die, according to an Anglican minister.

Dr Mark Durie, minister of St Mary’s Caulfield, said staff were finding it hard to cope with a reported six-fold increase in late-term abortions at the Women’s since abortion was decriminalised in Victoria two years ago. He said because conscientious objection by medical staff was now illegal, the hospital could employ only people who endorsed late-term abortions.

This same sort of thing was occurring in America less than a decade ago until one brave Christian stood up to protect the vulnerable.

My friend Jill Stanek was a registered nurse in the Labor & Delivery Department at the ironically named Christ Hospital in Oak Lawn, Illinois when she discovered babies were being aborted alive and left to die without medical care. Her exposure of the practice and testimony before Congress helped lead to the signing of the Born Alive Infants Protection Act in 2002.

May God raise up someone like Jill, a committed defender of life who will help to end this infanticidal practice in Australia.
