It is possible, albeit rare, for a late-term abortion to "fail" and leave a viable fetus. If an individual survives an abortion attempt and suffers lasting health problems, should they be able to bring charges against either the doctor or the mother?

It actually happens. They are called “abortion survivors”. Weird.

What an awful thought. I hope that never really happens.

Not only that but the baby should be taken away from that mother. Obviously she isn't responsible

That “fetus” is a human being. Why must you refer to him/her as a thing? Guess you have to keep your conscious clear somehow.

This shouldn't be a thing that ever comes up. "If at first you don't succeed, try again."

Why not?! There is case law that treats the fetus as an individual, which actually allows DA’s to charge someone with murder if they kill the fetus.

Are these types of abortions even happening anymore? I’d think there should be some sort of compensation for these poor souls and it’s a strong indication on why abortions past the first trimester for any other reason other than some sort of a threat of life of mother, should not be legal.

For example, see Gianna Jessen, who was born alive after a failed saline abortion.
