You would have to have a heart of stone not to be moved by this man’s interview last night on Prime Time. It should never have come to this , a situation where he lost his young wife. I always thought that Doctors took a oath to do the best for their patients. In this case it was clear that the foetus could not and would not survive . People seem to have missed the point that she entered the hospital already miscarrying her child. She did not seek a termination just for the sake of it. The humane thing to do in this case was to carry out a D&C to avoid more physical and mental anguish to the patient. It is barbaric to leave any woman in a situation where her baby is dying and do nothing. This is a case of doing the best for your patient and and nothing to do with abortion !!!!
