British Doctors Let Baby Born at 22 Weeks Die

LifeNews: British doctors are coming under fire for letting an unborn child born just before 22 weeks of pregnancy die. The National health Service, the government-run health system that Congress may replicate in legislation in the United States, is blamed for guidelines disallowing treatment.

Sarah Capewell told the London Daily Mail that doctors refused to see her son, who lived almost two hours on his own without any medical support before dying. She said Jayden was breathing on his own without any medical assistance and was moving his arms and legs, but medical staff refused to transfer him to a neonatal intensive care unit. The newspaper indicated Capewell said medical staff told her they would have been able to treat her son had he been born two days later.
