Parents lied to save preemie

World's Youngest Baby Born In Miami

Amillia Taylor, born after IFV, was delivered at only 21 weeks, 6 days. Because her parents knew that doctors wouldn't attempt to resusciate a baby 22 weeks or younger, they lied when mom Sonja Taylor was admitted to the hospital, so that doctors would think the baby was a 23-weeker.

She weighed just 10 ounces. Here she is, lying next to a pen: photo.

Meanwhile there are specialists who would gladly abort babies Amillia's age and older. And not for any sort of "maternal or fetal indications" but just because the mother showed up and paid for the deed. Right in Florida, Orlando Women's Center advertises 24+ week abortions.

Tiller cheerfully advertises 2nd and 3rd trimester abortions. Liberty Women's Health Care does up to 24 weeks -- more than two weeks older than Amillia. Choices Women's Medical Clinic advertises up to 24 weeks. Warren Hern advertises elective abortions up to 26 weeks -- a month older than Amillia -- and "medically indicated" up to 36 weeks. Abortion Advantage advertises elective abortions to 24 weeks. Atlanta Surgi-Center through 26 weeks.

Honestly, I don't know how you guys find the time to do this!!! (you and Suzanne - love her Big Blue Wave)..
I feel so guilty sometimes about not blogging and researching more; we all have kids; we're all busy....
Well, God Bless, and I will add you to my "favorites" now, too!

Thanks again,

Glad to be of service.

Most premies have sever physical and neurlogical defects lasting their relatively short lives, which costs their insurance provider millions of dollars. Which makes everyone's premiums go up, which renders many people unable to afford health insurance at all.

But, yeah, save a retard. Great!

Gosh, I didn't realize that all the orphans had been adopted already, or that poverty had been irradicated. Good job!

Anon, thanks for declaring the lives of my best friend's three kids to be totally worthless. Not to mention the lives of the folks at the State School where I used to work.

Being disabled doesn't make you a piece of shit, no matter what elitists think to the contrary. Everybody's life is precious.

Anon, thanks for pointing out to me how the prochoice stand toward abortion and infanticide is one of despair. "People are gonna treat these kids like shit anyway, so might as well kill them." Why not STOP TREATING THEM LIKE SHIT? What a radical concept! Stop punishing the victims! Whoa! Who articulated that? I think it was a guy named Jesus....
