Today I received the following heartening news item:
Quintuplets born to a Russian woman in a British hospital are doing well. The babies were delivered at 26 weeks by caesarean section by Dr Lawrence Impey of the John Radcliffe Hospital, Oxford. He was contacted by the mother's relatives after her doctor in Russia had advised selective abortion for some of the babies. All medical costs have been met by a group of Russian philanthropists.
Congratulations to mother, babies, philanthropists and Dr Impey. It is a sad irony the JR also carries out abortions itself.
