Babies thriving after mothers choose life
A young woman who refused to abort her twin boys after one of her amniotic sacs burst at 16 weeks was called ‘inhumane’ by medics. Hannah Morris, a 27 year-old from Tyne and Wear, was told that her babies would not survive the ruptured sacs – the second of which burst at 19 weeks. Her boys George and Alfie were delivered by C-section at 34 weeks, despite doctors advising abortion, and are now thriving at two years old. The condition, pre-term premature rupture of membranes (PPROM), affects around two per cent of pregnancies each year. Doctors at the Royal Bolton Hospital told Hannah that the twins’ organs may fail and that their limbs may stick to their bodies. When Hannah decided not to have an abortion, she said: “The negativity from the NHS was absolutely abominable”.
