I just realized it was 33-week abortion. Yeah, unless the mother was going to die if they did a C-section, that baby was most likely viable.

Most likely? Try definitely. At our NICU, 33 weekers, unless they have some serious defect, get placed in the "feed and weed" section. Just waiting for them to get big enough to go home.

Plus, I seriously doubt there is any significant risk difference between an abortion (especially at this advanced pregnancy) and a c-section.

This story doesn't pass the smell test on so many levels.
