Mother says doctors refused to treat infant because of U.K. health rules
Sorry, the government rules have established a cutoff date of 23 weeks gestation. Too bad for your baby.
A prime example of why the government should not be involved in medical decisions. This is a life or death situation, and we're fooling ourselves if we think government involvement won't bite us in our rears sooner or later.
And what makes me so very very mad, is that gestational dates are highly inaccurate, especially when you are establishing cutoff dates and refusing care because the baby's estimated gestation is two days shy of the date at which you would provide care.
They treated her like it was a miscarriage.
This is murder, folks. No easy way around it. Refusing treatment to a baby showing signs of hope (the baby lived for two hours). We are sliding down that slope.
