Default Re: 1 in 30 aborted babies lives

I think it is interesting that the BBC writer has described the aborted babies as babies not foetuses.

Reading this was chilling - they way they talk about killing babies as the most natural thing, that the worst thing would be for them to survive cause the doctor might then be charged with murder. Better to give the baby a lethal injection to ensure that he/she won't be born alive and pretend that it isn't still murder.

I would like to know how many of those babies aborted because of a pre-natal diagnosis of disability actually were impaired and how often the doctors are wrong.

http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/health/6574873.stm
Most abortions are carried out on "healthy" babies for social reasons.
Abortion is allowed in Britain up to the 24th week of pregnancy. Beyond this, a termination is only sanctioned if the baby has a severe disability or if the mother's life is at risk.

Usually, the baby will not survive the procedure.

Guidelines say that doctors should ensure that the drugs they use for the termination also prevent such babies being alive at birth
(emphasis mine)
