When it comes to lowering the number of weeks for legal abortion in the UK, it seems much of the debate is revolving around “the medical evidence” for survival rates outside the womb. Then there’s the view to women’s rights–the pending disaster should women not be allowed to kill their babies at 20 weeks. Finally, some crazy person claiming science can’t decide it all.
Far be it from me to comment on all things scientific, but babies delivered at full term do not survive on their own outside the womb. Not the ones I know, anyway. That’s the human predicament. We offer ourselves to compassionately care for these babies, where the mother can’t or won’t. Unless we don’t get the opportunity because all those babies are aborted, which is more the reality right now.
