I went on line tonight to check my e-mail and a story came up about a baby surviving a late term abortion, since it was a drop down thing netscape does, I was unable to copy the URL so I did a google search of Baby survives Abortion and was shocked at the number of stories. two things made me post tonight, One, the hope to someday out law this practice, and the other to bring this issue to see if there is really any support for this horrible act.
pro-choice arguments in the history of the debate since just before Roe v. Wade say that all a woman has a right to is the removal of the fetus from her uterus. If the fetus happens to survive, why she should have a right to its death?
doctors have been debating the appropriate response if a fetus survives a late-term abortion. Apparently it is not unheard of for fetuses as young as 24 or even 23 weeks to survive the attempt to snuff out their lives. When this happens, " guidelines from the College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists for late abortions stated that the fetus should be given a lethal injection to the heart before it was delivered as the intention was that the baby would not survive." So even if the baby survives, the doctor is then to immediately euthenize the child.
