It happened again, this time in Australia.
A woman was advised that one of her twins would have serious medical issues, so she decided to abort that twin.
The hospital made a mistake during the procedure. The twin without medical issues was killed. And then the other twin was also aborted.
It has also happened in Italy and the United States. Here are the headlines for each:
Australia: Hospital kills wrong baby, aborts twin.
United States: Doctor loses license after aborting wrong twin
Every headline is mistaken. There is no ‘wrong’ twin in any of these circumstances. Only helpless unborn babies, every one of them.
The only reason any of these babies was chosen to be aborted was because of potential disabling conditions.
The answer isn’t better medical tests or more specific hospital guidelines, but changed hearts that rush to help mothers and babies rather than destroy them.
And where were the fathers?
Lord, please, change our hearts for the sake of the little ones!
