[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.
