Experiments were reportedly done on aborted babies while they were still alive, according to an article published in the American Journal of Obstetrics and Gynecology. draws attention to the article and says the experiments were done at Stanford University Hospital by Dr. Robert C. Goodlin.

The purpose of the experiments was to observe the still-beating hearts of the aborted babies.

The babies were reportedly kept in incubators and their chests were cut open and their hearts observed.

In a grisly description of the experiments, the Journal says: “The thorax [chest] was opened and the heart was observed directly. When the heart was beating, the fetus was returned to the chamber and the experiment was resumed.”

One of the babies survived for 11 hours under these brutal conditions.

This kind of experimentation on aborted babies who are still alive is illegal in the U.S., despite these studies.
