Ghastly born-alive story

Today's News and Views was only one of many to report on the horrible story of the death of a baby born alive after an attempted abortion.

This is just a bizarre story. I keep wondering whether the mom would have noticed or cared had her baby (the same baby, same age) been killed in the womb instead of after her unexpected birth. Would she have had a problem with that? Or would she have been just fine with it, at least at the time?

Or would she have been one of the many women who grieve in silence over their lost children because society tells them the abortion was "no big deal."

We know for a fact that the Medical Board and the Department of Health would have been completely unconcerned. And the general public would never have heard about it.

Where's the logic in that?
