I had no idea this was legal in the UK



post birth death by neglect

OK, the baby has severe abnormalities. If you find out early enough you can get an abortion. But sometimes you don't find out until birth occurs. The doctor can't just hit the baby in the head with a ball peen hammer five minutes after getting permission from the parents. That would be murder. It's illegal.

However, the doctor can withhold care to allow the baby to die on its own. This is legal. And sometimes it takes TEN DAYS.

I was told that the UK's healthcare system was awesome because everyone has insurance. Are you saying that there may be some crazy shite going on over there?

Sad part is that there are probably some here who think that is a parents "Right".

I guess it's ok then. Let's make having sex with young boys legal too.

Isn't this what Obama was for as well in the case of failed late term abortions?

I'm not sure if his bill called for neglect till death or the doctor actually killing the baby to save it from suffering. It was one or the other.

I'm pretty sure the bill removed obligation nof the physician to provide medical care to an abortion survivor, thus ensuring that it would eventually die.

This is so unbelievably inhumane that its almost too horrendous to fathom. If a dog was killed purposely this way in America, the killer would probably face charges.

It is, but it's hush hush, and if a abortion protesters uses these facts, they're being hateful. There's not a fiber in my being that would allow me to watch a child lay there and slowly die.
