Boy is Aborted 3 Times and Still Survives
A BABY survived at least three attempts to abort it from the womb and was born alive at 24 weeks old.
This was reported in UK Times Online.
Now two years old and healthy, he is the first long-term abortion survivor to have been born so prematurely. His remarkable entrance into the world is documented in the Journal of Obstetrics and Gynaecology.
Dr Paul Clarke, one of the report’s authors and the baby’s doctor at Hope hospital in Salford, Greater Manchester, said: “This mother went through extreme hardship waiting to see if her baby was going to make it. She was told to expect him to die so many times. I am full of admiration for her.”
The attempted abortions had been carried out at the British Pregnancy Advisory Service’s Blackdown clinic in Leamington Spa, Warwickshire.
Clarke reveals that paediatricians often intervene to save babies who have survived abortions.
