It’s time to rethink our attitude to abortion

Sep 12, 2014 by

By James Mumford, Telegraph: A new set of figures was published last week. The figures were released without much fanfare, but they are potentially explosive: a rising proportion of premature babies born at 23 weeks are surviving. More accurately, Britain’s best neonatal units are saving them. Freedom of information requests from 25 hospitals revealed that 120 babies born at 23 weeks survived over the past four years (likely to be more given the limited sample size). In 2006 just 19 per cent...

Sep 8, 2014 by

By Nadine Dorries MP: Last week, the most recent EPICure study confirmed what many always knew; that if the NHS throws everything it has at saving the life of a premature baby born at 23 weeks gestation, there is an excellent chance of survival and an ongoing healthy life. The possibility has been raised that there will be fresh calls from MPs to reduce the abortion limit from 24 weeks, and I have sat back and patiently waited for the Westminster wall of silence to crumble.

Calls to lower abortion limit as record number of babies survive birth at 23 weeks

Sep 1, 2014 by

By Leon Watson, Mailonline: A major study has revealed a record number of babies are surviving being born at 23 weeks.

Figures from only 25 hospitals at large hospitals with specialist doctors were sampled, meaning the real number of week 23 babies who survived is likely to be higher. It will revive the...
