Australia Inquiry After Wrong Twin Foetus Terminated

Quote:
An Australian hospital has launched an inquiry after staff treating a woman carrying twin boys accidentally terminated the wrong foetus.

Doctors had told the woman that one of her babies had a congenital heart defect that would require numerous operations, if he survived.

The woman chose to abort the 32-week foetus but staff injected the wrong twin.

The hospital in Melbourne described it as a "terrible tragedy".

"The Royal Women's Hospital can confirm a distressing clinical accident occurred on Tuesday," it said in a statement.

"We are conducting a full investigation and continue to offer the family and affected staff every support."

The woman went on to have an emergency caesarean to end the life of the sick foetus.

'Thorough investigation'
Victorian Health Minister David Davis said the hospital investigation would be overseen by an independent expert.

"I am very much determined to get to the bottom of what went wrong," he said.

State Premier Ted Baillieu echoed his sentiments, saying: "I don't think it's appropriate for anybody to draw any conclusions other than this is a horrible tragedy.

"We'll make sure that the investigation is as thorough as it can be."

In a brief statement, the family asked for privacy "at what has been a very difficult time for us".

That sucks for her but I think the intentions were wrong. I think people who would do something like that (choose a baby to kill just because of those odds which are not even that bad), really deserve what they get.

That is horrible! This is what happens when people try to play God, no matter what your beliefs. I could never make a decision to end a life. Karma is a bitch!

Re: Australia Inquiry After Wrong Twin Foetus Terminated

32 weeks is viable, No way in hell should she have been given this option to begin with. Sanctioned murder in my opinion.

not really, they chose to end one childs life due to the inconvenience of having to have the child have a few operations, I doubt they have enough hart to care that much about the other child.

It may be a nightmare story for parents who have a child born with similar defects who went on to live happy lives. This story makes me sick but maybe there is more to it and I am in no position to judge. "if it survived" thats the key for me here, what are the chances of survival? for the time being I withdraw my "I doubt they have enough hart" comment

For the record I am pro choice
