Women Face Risks as Doctors Struggle With Medical Exceptions on Abortion

  Women Face Risks as Doctors Struggle With Medical Exceptions on Abortion HOUSTON — Dr. Amanda Horton, an obstetrician who specializes in high-risk pregnancies, had been counseling pregnant patients at a small hospital in rural Texas last month when a woman arrived in crisis: It was only 17 weeks into her pregnancy and her water had broken. The fetus would not be viable outside the womb, and without the protection of the amniotic sac, the woman was vulnerable to an infection could threaten her life.

Archie Battersbee, a 12-year-old British boy at the center of a long legal battle between his parents and doctors over the withdrawal of his treatment, died on Saturday, his mother, Hollie Dance, said.

Archie died at 12:15 p.m. local time at Royal London Hospital, a few hours after doctors suspended the artificial ventilation keeping him alive, Dance told reporters, adding she was “so proud to be his mum.”

“Such a beautiful little boy, and he fought right until the very end,” she said.

Dance said the hospital had made it clear there were no more options and that life support would be withdrawn on Saturday morning.

The 12-year-old had been in a coma since he was found unconscious by his mother in April. He was being kept alive by a combination of medical interventions, including ventilation and drug treatments, according to Britain’s PA news agency.

Doctors eventually concluded the boy to be “brain-stem dead,” which led his family to pursue a legal battle over maintaining his life-sustaining support in the hope he would recover, PA reported.

In recent days, the family made bids to the High Court, Court of Appeal and European Court of Human Rights to have him transferred to a hospice to die, according to PA.
