[quote:Don'tBeAfraid:MV8yMTE2NjI3XzM1NjkzMDI4X0M1QzIxNzky] Once, saving a premie was all but impossible. Then we could save 7th month olds. Now that's been pushed back. The babies get smaller and smaller. Who knows how far medicine will go? I don't think it's a good thing. A lot of these mom's they're 13, 14 and completely unprepared. To keep pushing the premie date earlier and earlier, a lot will probably be really terribly ill and have mental issues and be a cost to society. That's sound horrific, I know. Should we keep trying to save them all? At four months? When do we draw the line? It's a complex bioethical question. They're consequences to saving them all. Many would die before. Here's some statistics.

(Fowler GA. Preemie problems: the sobering statistics. US News World Reports 2000; vol 129: pp56.) Of children born before 26 weeks' gestation, results in 241 of the surviving children at six years (early school age) indicate a high level of disability as follows: 22% severe disability (defined as cerebral palsy but not walking, low cognitive scores, blindness, profound deafness) 24% moderate disability (defined as cerebral palsy but walking, IQ/cognitive scores in the special needs range, lesser degree of visual or hearing impairment) 34% mild disability (defined as low IQ/cognitive score, squint, requiring glasses) 20% no problems " [/quote]
