UK study: 1 in 20 "medical indications" fetuses born alive, left to die

One baby in 30 left alive after medical termination

Now, is the problem that we're not killing them effectively enough, or that we're killing babies that could survive if we didn't let them die of neglect, or is this not a problem?

Gianna, of course, sympathizes with the babies, having been an aborted fetus herself.

From the article:

They lived for an average of 80 minutes - although in some cases foetuses survived for over six hours.

Is it just me, or did anyone else find it odd to hear of tiny human beings who were born alive referred to as "foetuses"?

Not odd in the abortion context. Though, of course, by their reckoning, Gianna Jessen is therefore a fetus. Just a very lively and articulate one.
