2010 and 2011 late term abortion statistics - born alive

Statistics Canada has published two more years of the late term born alive abortion statistics for 2010 and 2011.

For these two years, there were 131 abortions, of 20 weeks gestation and greater, that resulted in live births. This means that the aborted child died after it was born. These abortions are coded as P96.4 or "Termination of pregnancy, affecting fetus and newborn".

This number does not include late term abortions that are born dead (stillbirths).

See my last post on this to calculate the figures.

Here is a screen shot of the numbers and the footnotes:
