I just saw Newsnight or whatever it was and they were talking about premature babies. Now we just had a vote on Abortion in the UK and they decided to keep it at 24 weeks. I totally disagree with abortion, if there is proper counselling and support there is no need for any abortions. Even teen pregnancy you can get support to help you through this. Abortion in the UK has become a contraception which is unacceptable. We also have the highest rate of abortion in Europe and high repeat abortions. What i saw on Newsnight was people wanting to decide on quality of life and if premature babies should be given medical care to keep them alive, they were suggesting that premature babies might live lower quality of lives or become disabled or become a burden or care might cost loads and it wouldnt be economical. It wasnt like they were suggesting this rather telling us its being discussed and they talked to various people who thought different things. There were also supporters of trying to keep premature babies alive. They talked about Dutch law and how a whole infrastructure needs to be created for babies that are being kept alive at earlier weeks and how whne they grow up they might need support ect. I personally know people who were born premature and i have a family member who needs care and i know they live good life's and are loved. Every person has a right to life. Im not even using my religion as a factor it is obvious and simple to see that quality of life cannot be judged. Is it better to try keep alive premature babies? Yes i think it is. I also thought this discussion might include abortion.
