The St. Petersburg Times reported today that a doctor in Sarasota, Florida had his medical license revoked after unintentionally aborting the wrong baby. A woman, pregnant with twins, wanted her baby boy, diagnosed with congenital problems and possibly Down Syndrome, to be aborted. The doctor aborted the “wrong baby,” the female twin.
Wrong baby? Who are we to say which life is worth more than the other? The termination of either baby would be just as wrong. Because of the “mistake,” the mother decided to end the lives of both children.
The practice of selective abortion is more prevalent than one would think. Sadly, doctors and parents try to play the role of God, deciding which children deserve to live.
