[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.

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]
