Left to Die

If someone’s going to go an kill a baby in the womb, they ought to at least do it properly. The NHS apparently isn’t do such a good job.

That doesn’t mean these babies born alive are allowed to continue living.  They are just left to die. Sounds particularly barbaric, doesn’t it?

    I was particularly appalled by the case of the baby who survived for *ten hours* before finally succumbing to the death planned for it.
    I hope that these poor little mites were at least cuddled by some one who cared about them before they died, though I fear that is a vain hope.

    One of my midwifery colleagues used to sit with women from the antenatal clinic who had chosen to abort – due to severe fetal abnormality – at ~ 20 weeks gestation , and she admitted to me that in many cases, these babies were indeed born alive and moving, although due to extreme prematurity, they survived only a few minutes.
