Boy, now 2, survived 3 abortion attempts

Life News reports, British Boy Survived Three Failed Abortion Attempts, Now Two Years-Old

A baby in the U.K. survived three failed abortion attempts and was born alive at 24 weeks into the pregnancy. ....Although the mother had been told at an abortion business that the RU 486 abortion was complete, she felt the baby moving on the way home.

....His story has been documented recently in the Journal of Obstetrics and Gynecology.

The baby was on a ventilator for seven weeks and fought off life-threatening infections to survive. He ... was finally able to go home after seven months of treatment in the hospital.

....A report in the London Times says the mother did not realize she was pregnant until 22 weeks into the pregnancy. Already the mother of one, she felt she could not handle caring for a second child.

She was given ... RU 486 ... over a series of four days at the abortion facility run by the British Pregnancy Advisory Service. The abortion drug is not supposed to be used so late in pregnancy.

The abortion business is under investigation by British officials for sending women to Spain for illegal late-term abortions and falsifying medical information....

On the one hand, what a blessing for the baby and the mom. On the other hand, it just perplexes me that she made three attempts to snuff him then was afraid he might die. I mean, what's the deal with that?
