Babies in Hell?

I am reading Dante’s Divine Comedy and Dante is entering the circles of hell in Inferno. It is disgusting to see him list unbaptized babies in hell in Canto IV. Even the thought of babies condemned to hell is repulsive.

“But Jesus said, ‘Let the little children come to Me, and do not forbid them; for of such is the kingdom of heaven'” (Matthew 19:14).

Jesus would not ever think of sending innocent babies to an eternal hell. I would hate to try to explain to those who have lost their precious infants that they have gone to hell. But, of course, we don’t have to, because Scripture nowhere teaches this abominable doctrine.
