The National Health Service has revealed that an abortion meant to kill a sick twin was botched, and accidentally killed the healthy twin, whom the parents had intended to keep.
The botched abortion was revealed in a Freedom of Information Act survey, which exposed 700 deaths due to basic errors which could have been prevented. According to The Sun , the babies were diagnosed with “restrictive growth.” Presumably, this means selective intrauterine growth restriction (sIUGR), a condition which occurs in an estimated 10% to 15% of twin pregnancies. With sIUGR, the growth-restricted twin doesn’t receive enough nourishment from the placenta, and the weight difference between the twins grows higher than 20%.
Birmingham Women’s and Children’s NHS Foundation Trust committed the abortion in an effort to help the healthier twin survive the pregnancy. “Selective fetal growth restriction is a condition that occurs in around 10 to 20 percent of twin pregnancies when one of the babies does not receive enough nourishment through the placenta to grow at a normal rate,” a Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists spokesman said in a statement . “In the most serious cases, selective termination can improve the survival chances of the normally grown fetus at the expense of the severely growth-restricted co-twin.”
Yet according to respected health care organizations like Children’s Minnesota , Johns Hopkins , and the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia , there are options available for management and treatment of sIUGR. One study found up to a 90% survival rate in both twins .
Was the mother offered any interventions or treatment options that would have given a chance of survival to both children? It’s not clear, but the United Kingdom is known for its coercive attitude towards abortion, particularly for preborn children with disabilities. Under those circumstances, the Antenatal Results and Choices (ARC) will only give parents resources and support if they choose to have an abortion after a prenatal diagnosis. It is unclear if this was the case for this family.
Dr. Fiona Reynolds, chief medical officer at Birmingham Women’s and Children’s NHS Trust, called the mistake a “fatal error” which occurred during a “highly […]
One Sick Day Proves We Need More Voices in Truthful Media
On October 19, I was sick. It crossed my mind that I had finally gotten the ‘rona, but my wife’s cream of chicken soup and a few extra hours of sleep into mid-afternoon had be back up and running after a sleepless night before.
When I finally stumbled over to my computer in the evening, I was met with a deluge of concern from readers. They asked what had happened as only one article had been posted that day. Generally, we post between 10-20 daily between all of the sites, not included curated and aggregated content. Seeing that we’d only posted my super-early morning article before taking the rest of the day off had readers assuming the worst.
We have a wonderful and talented group of writers who volunteer their time for the sites and their readers. Sharing their amazing perspectives has always been a blessing to us because we cannot afford to hire anyone at this time. But having great writers is meaningless if we don’t have great editors, or at least one additional. My wife helps me read and edit stories from time to time, but I’m a one-man show when it comes to getting the stories posted.
Whenever I highlight our desperate need for donations, I note that we do not receive money from Google ads even though most in conservative media are beholden. I often ambiguously note that the money donated will help us grow. Today, I’m highlighting a specific need. We must get an editor to help take some of the load and to expand on our mission of spreading the truth to the world. One sick day proved that.
The great news is that there is no shortage of people who CAN help. I am emailed variations of resumes every week by people who are much smarter than I am. As much as I’d love to hire some of them, we simply cannot. That takes money and as blessed as we’ve been to receive donations and collect ad money (though not from Google or Facebook), we have still fallen short.
Those who have the means, PLEASE consider donating. We have the standard Giving Fuel option and people can donate through PayPal. We are also diving into what we believe is extremely disruptive technology at LetsGo.finance, the world’s first major donation portal for crypto. I’ll be talking a lot more about them in the near future. Those who prefer Bitcoin can send to my address here: 3A1ELVhGgrwrypwTJhPwnaTVGmuqyQrMB8
We can get the voices out there and we’re willing to shine a spotlight on new talent. We just need the resources to make it happen. If you can help, we would be extremely grateful.
Thank you and God bless!
